Serving in Salyersville

Serving in Salyersville

July 11, 2018

Today we want to update you with some photos from Iris Yeager and her team while they are serving in Salyersville, KY. She is pictured below with her teammates some of whom she met for the first time this week. They spent this time sitting with one another talking and learning about one another.

First Fruits

In the post from just a few days ago we made mention of the First Fruits Thrift Store in Magoffin County. We have a couple of photos provided by Iris of the store. In them you can see the various items people in the area are able to purchase.

The purpose of this thrift store is two-fold: to provide a place where people in the area might purchase items they need as well as a means to meet the people in the area and to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with them and to use the profits made from the store to help fund missions teams to come serve in Salyerville with Licking River Baptist Church. The team down there for the next few days will be helping stock the store. The local newspaper, Salyersville Independent, reported on the opening of the store and shared more information on how the store came to fruition.

Time Well Spent

While in Salyersville, the team spent time ministering to those in a nursing home. The last photo shows the team as they were having intentional conversations with the people in the home and participating the other activities.

Iris finished of her message to us with how the week has only begun for them, but they’ve thoroughly enjoyed their time serving the people of Salyersville, KY. Please continue to pray for the team and that they would seek to find Jesus in all of their tasks throughout the rest of the week. Pray that they would experience the love of God in the gospel of Jesus Christ while they are serving.

Where We Serve

Fast and Pray

We want to be a people who are obedient in accomplishing the mission God has called us to. In obeying our Gracious King Jesus, we are asking you to join us in praising God for what He has already done and asking Him to provide in specific ways for our mission and that He would meet us in the work we do. We also know that God doesn’t need us, but oh, does He want us and want to use us! Please join us as we fast to remember how much we need our God and pray to praise and petition Him.

Be Praying

For the Jamaica Student Support program who needs to replace some partners that had to regretfully and unexpectedly drop their students.

For Melissa Zimmerman Russell (from Ranch near Highgate Jamaica, now living in Muncie) who has been speaking about the Jamaican Student Support in churches. Pray for her as she shares her passion for opening up opportunities for children to study.

For the Mission House staff and teams in Jamaica who have not been getting water recently. Water has been in the pipe two days a week in good weeks.

For the CSI Staff as they prepare for a busy and exciting summer of mission teams.

For continued wisdom and discernment as to how and when to help with the overwhelming request from persons in need who approach the missionaries in Jamaican for House Request, Food Request, Medical Request, Etc.

For the void in our summer schedule which will cause fewer homes being built, the Jamaican staff’s work schedules being reduced and overall less people generally engaging in less ministry.

For the teams soon to travel that they may be spiritually prepared and God will work to each grow more deeply in their faith.

For Licking River Baptist Church in Slayersville as they launch a Thrift Store Ministry in the town.

For more church partners and teams. We love getting more people to the mission field!

First Stone Church in Belize as they conduct a medical outreach for the community this month.

For the new offices for The Way, and other non-profits who will operate beginning in June at Cross America, in Kokomo. Please pray for the construction to be done with ease and timeliness.

Praise God

For the Frankfort Christian Academy Team, Frankfort, KY, a team of 22 who had a great week in Jamaica.  They built two 10 x 20 houses while conducting morning school devotions each day.

For Team IGNITE, Indiana, a group of 4 who worked to build a 10 x 10 house for a young teenage mother and her new baby in the Dean Pen area.

For Pearline Byran’s (CSI staff) son Jabaire who is working in Denver, Colorado, USA, on a work program for 4 months.

For several Jamaican schools in the Highgate area receiving repairs from the “Ministry Outreach Fund” that covered the cost of Materials and Staff, etc.  Armitt’s Basic School received New Doors, the Clonmel Basic School received repairs to their bathroom facilities, and several other repairs were completed.

For Mike Ginter’s Mom, Carolyn as she continues to improve from Cancer and is scheduled for Colostomy Bag Reversal Surgery on June 20.

For those on team for The Way: Castlewellan.  The weekends were great.  God was there strongly moving in the guests and team.  Although being hampered by cancelled flights, delayed flights and missed flights for the Americans going over, it all worked out and God was glorified.  So many God moments to share!

For some excellent conversations with new churches and ministries as we talk and dream about future ministry together.

For teams from Indiana and Georgia in Ky that accomplished way more than expected!
