We have been working hard to collaborate this summer with short-term teams, other missions organizations, leaders and communities throughout the Grand Anse region. Much of this teamwork was on display this past month! Read below to see just a few things that have been on our hearts and minds the past few weeks!
It was an exciting few days this month to host David Wiedis and his wife, Miho to teach our Leadership Conference. It was a revealing time to dive into ruling passions that control our lives without the knowledge of many of us. Drawing from the lives of Peter and Paul, it gave each staff member to see motives and problem-solving in the first church and give a chance to reflect on what drives each of us; whether we are pastors, teachers, security guards or kitchen staff.
It was a privilege to welcome New Song Community Church to our mission in Jeremie for the first time this month! This group of 21 passionate individuals worked in the summer heat for a week to partner with us in roofing fifteen homes in the St. Helene and Sou Platon zones in Jeremie, re-install the water collection system at Madam Joel's orphanage in Chambellan, paint and install chalk boards at Te Wouj School and much more. Our staff fell in love with this fun, serving team, and it was a blessing to host them.
We have completed several bathrooms for communities in Sou Platon, Caracolie and Bonbon. Through these, we foster public sanitation, health, and build relationships in new communities with the help of their own leaders!
