How we started, where we were, and where we are now with Church Mobilization
For the month of September, we got to welcome a World Race: Fusion squad to live with us. They not only joined in our everyday life, but they also joined us in a huge variety of ministry. This team of seven helped with our monthly missions conference, spent time with grandpas at a nursing home, helped build a house with Habitat for Humanity, installed stoves for families, and prayed for people around Antigua.
The team shared with some of the specific ministry that greatly impacted them. Here's what they had to say.
For the last several months, our staff members Kellie and Michelle have joined in a mom's ministry hosted by our friends Emma and Renzo de Lopez. The ministry is an opportunity for the women to come together, have fun, and learn about the Lord.
Emma says, "The women´s ministry is growing. Some of the moms come from far away with their children just to be here with us. We are beginning to see a great spiritual change in their lives and they are growing in their faith.
Renzo and I began to notice that there is a great need for stoves in many of the homes. The families are suffering physically from the smoke from the fires they use to cook on. So we began to pray and ask God to provide stoves for them. A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from our friend saying that they would like to bless ten families with new stoves.
We installed the stoves and we have witnessed the change this blessing has brought to their lives. Moms now are able to cook without crying from the smoke and their lungs are not suffering anymore."
On the day of the stove installations, our staff member Angela had an encounter that completely changed her perspective on the impact of these stoves.
