We have a trip planned for February 2023 and have 9 people on the team. We are planning on several different activities this trip and it is an interesting group of folks. Our main focus is always ministry representing Jesus Christ and teaching the love that comes from the Holy Spirit. One of our friends is going to teach a start up business course to a group of young people, and this will be a full day with handout information in Spanish.
Two more will be spending a day and a half teaching on the indwelling Spirit of Christ in our lives. “Not I but Christ” as stated in Galatians 2:20.
We will also take a trip to the westernmost area of the island that suffer much damage from the hurricane Ian that hit Florida in September. We are taking them much needed medicine and getting and idea of needs going forward.
We also will spend time in youth ministry at the church on Saturday and speak at house churches Sunday morning. It’s going to be a wonderful time spent with wonderful people. Our next planned trip is in august of next year, Happy New Year!
This trip will be a teaching trip based on our union life with Christ. Our hope is to have elders and key house church leaders to attend this wonderful seminar on the freedom we have in Christ through His indwelling Spirit. We hope to have 8-10 folks on this trip. Sylvia Pearce will be referring to examples of the faith relationship from her book “The Treasures of Darkness” which she has now published in Spanish. I promise you will be filled with joy on this trip.
We have team going for baseball ministry during these dates 5/29-6/3 2019. Plans are to have baseball clinic for the youth and do community service work in Alamar. This includes clean up on streets and also evangelism while doing the clean up. The Pastor always has ways the teams can help grow the ministry there so we always remain flexible to help in any way.
Friends, our new project will begin in March 2018. We want to instill some community pride in Alamar and hope it will be a contagious effort. Because the residents do not own anything outside of their homes and an occasional yard area, lots of garbage needs to be picked up and no individuals are in a hurry to do it. The plan is to start picking up garbage in the street 2 times per week in Zone 1 of Alamar. It’s left up to the government to pick it up and when hurricanes or storms hit lots of debris is gathered to the side of the road. This piles up over time and we want to make it a cleaner, more aesthetic looking neighborhood. We have a large truck with a lift bed to take the garbage to the city dump. We will have a free home cooked dinner at the church for the cleanest street for that month. All those that live on the winning street will come to the church for a great meal. During that time we can explain what the church is about and share Christ with them. Awesome opportunity to do a great work in many ways. We want to build on this and grow the community closer together and hope to start a recycling program as well. If interested please let me know. Blessings to you! Steve
We have almost finalized our team for our upcoming trip in November. Plans are to have a group of 8 joining together to experience relational growth and looking to serve others during our time in the Alamar community. A full report upon our return.
