We had a restful night of sleep at the CSI Guesthouse and have had some amazing food thanks to Pinto and her amazing helpers! Her homemade breads and main dishes as well as the fresh Jamaican fruit has nourished our bodies and given us strength for the task ahead!
Our day of rest began with worship with the people of Bethel Church. They led us in song and praise, and it is obvious that we are united in purpose and mission to serve the same Lord and Savior, Jesus. We felt very welcomed and at home and the Holy Spirit’s presence was palpable! Services typically last 3 hours here, and we were not disappointed!
We were further blessed by an unscheduled visit to the beach! We had a great time exploring, playing, and just being together on a beautiful day in a beautiful setting.
And now we are ready to work! God is good! Today we will be begin building 3 houses, as well as concrete work on an extension to Bethel Church. Please pray for unity, strength, and love as we begin. And pray that we would sense the prompting of the Holy Spirit to reach out to the people we are serving. Pray that our teens (adults too!) would be bold in their faith, and able to share the hope that they have in Christ with the families, many of whom do not know the saving grace of Jesus!
2 Corinthians 5:20
We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us.
