September Belize Prayer Calander and Chambers update
Category : Belize
Dear Partners in Ministry,
Anita and I return to Florida on Saturday after spending nealy a month in Belize. It has been good to be back to reconnect with colleagues and friends. I have been filling in for Pamela Murray (Administrator) and Anita has filled in for Estela Uk (RN) while they took their vacations. I also rerouted the clinic plumbing to prepare for the roof repair of the clinic. It was a major project and reminded me of our Haiti days when I was the director of physical plant for the hospital. I also met with church leaders, lead Bible studies, devotionals, and preached at the Patchakan Church this past Sunday. It has been a good month of ministry.
We will be in Delrey Beach Florida for two weeks, which is our home for the next year as we make decsions on where to best locate to lead the Caribbean ministries for MTW, before I leave for Greece on September 17th. The MTW LEAD Conference which is held every three years for MTW missionarie and national church partner leaders will be held in Athens this year. Anita will head to the Dominican Republic (DR) on the 22nd to serve on a MTW medical team ministrering to Dominicans and Haitians in the south-west corner of the DR. I will join her on September 28 along with MTW missionaries Richard Ramsey and our DR missionary Omar Cedeno to meet with two groups who are asking for assistance in theological education. I will also meet with one or two Haitian pastors to discuss the possibility of assisting them with training as well. Please be praying for these trips!
During our two weeks in Florida we will be seeking to recruit missionaries for Belize, Jamaica, and the Dominican Republic. In Belize we are seeking a Spanish speaking ordained missionary who has a counseling background or a wife with a counseling degree. We also need someone to lead mercy ministries and short-term mission teams. A physican and nusre are being sought for the clinic ministry as well. In Jamaica we need 1-2 men for theological education with one of them being fluent in sign language to train deaf pastors. For the Dominican Republic we are looking for someone to be a team leader and to spearhead theological education. Please be prying for all of these recuritment needs! I will also be setting up an October trip toTrinidad and Grenada to work on ministry partner relationships with two ministries. Pray for wisdom and guidence in these endeavors.
The clinic roof project is ready to move forward now that the plumbing has been rerouted from the roof. We have received $2,000 of the $5,000 additional funds needed to comple the project. If you can help meet this need it would be greatly appreciated.
