Jamaica Team Update: Day 2

Yesterday was our first full day here in Montego Bay, and was it ever a FULL day!!!

Steve, Jack, Deb, and LaRen got right to work on the apartment/office unit that we are finishing off for The RESCUE Church office.  They worked hard all day and got much accomplished!

While they were hard at work with that, Sam, Chase, and myself went to take part in a meeting with a group of pastors from around the area.  We had been invited to take about 10 minutes and share the story of our church and the vision God has called us to and how we came to be planting a campus in Deeside, Jamaica.

All I can say is that God did something awesome as a result of that 10-minute presentation!  We had numerous pastors waiting in line to speak to each of us when the meeting was done.  We were invited to speak that night at a church in downtown Montego Bay.  We took the entire team and had a wonderful time answering questions and encouraging the believers in that church.  We also got an invitation to speak at another church at 7:00 am on Wednesday morning. Can you imagine that?  A pastor is going to get his leaders out of bed and to church by 7:00 in the morning just to hear us share our story and answer their questions!!!  It is so encouraging to see the hunger and excitement that these believers have for the body of Christ!  We are excited for the opportunity to be used by God to be an encouragement here.

 

Again, thank you for your remembering us in your prayers!
