LA GONAVE UPDATE

At Wednesday evening’s Promises we will welcome Pastor Agones of the Family of God Church at Betoiti, Haiti, and Dr. Frankie Jeffery, of North Naples United Methodist Church. They will be giving us an update of the success of the mission work on LaGonave Island.  With them will be the “Haitian Suitcase Boutique” featuring gift items made by the ladies at the church, and sold to support their school and church.  A year ago we hosted Pastor Agones and Dr. Jeffery and learned of their plan to provide the people on LaGonave “a hand up rather than a handout.”  Now we have the opportunity to learn about the next step forward for this mission, and the role that members of Carlson UMC have played in the success.  Dinner, as usual, will be served promptly at 5:45 p.m. so be sure to sign-up on the sheet in the Narthex, online, or call the church office. The evening will include the next segment of our 32-week-long study of the Book of Mark and all the usual group events for children and adults.  This is shaping up to be an evening you won’t want to miss.



BREAKING THE SILENCE ON CUBA

 


One Door Ministries

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Steve and I are greatly encouraged by our time in Midland and the ODM Board meeting. We will begin working our way south today by flying to STL. meanwhile we have an urgent need- a Special Prayer Request !

All connected with One Door will appreciate your fervent prayer for safety over the next few days. The Haitian government requires all seminaries to teach classes on indigenous religions and other religious expressions, like voodoo and other world views. We have one such class scheduled for Thursday 20th and Friday 21st. The visiting professors will be staying with Ago and then return to the main island on Saturday. Our students will be taught the basic beliefs of this other faith.

 
When possible confront the darkness and fear with the Victory and Grace of Jesus Christ.
 
Please be praying towards that end. Thank you all. 
With a grateful heart,
Karen & Steve Jameson
