St Vincent Day 5

Today was another great day!!! Have a story from Katelyn, Becky, and Angela’s team. They were in a community and Angela had the opportunity of leading a man to Christ. There story to them was that he had murdered someone years ago and that God could not forgive him of that and he couldn’t have a relationship with Him. They shared with him that he could and he prayed to receive Christ. Everyone is doing great. Again it is very sunny and hot but everyone is drinking a lot and doing well. The food is also really good especially compared to many other mission trips. I have put some pics up. One is an ocean shot and another one a house right next to the ocean (house to them). Definitely different that we would expect to see on an island. The area is very poor. There are no many jobs currently. So sometimes whole families sit at home all do with no source of income. Continue to pray for the whole team.

St. Vincent Day 4

Well we all had a great first day of ministry. My team (Chris is on my as well) went to the top of the island (1 1/2 hour drive) and went to a school. We played games with them and also got to talk with them a lot. One of the other teams near us led 2 people to Christ. The team that Angela, Becky, and Katelyn are on is not back yet but will be soon. They were going into the community and doing surveys and building relationships. I have attached some pics so you can get an idea of what we are doing and what is going on. Continue to pray for us. All is well.

St. Vincent Day 3

Well it's 12:15p.m. Sunday afternoon. All is well. Our flight didn't leave Barbados last night until 9:15p.m.. So we got in a little late. Everyone got some sleep and then we went to church this morning and are about to eat lunch. Then we are going to do some training. It is HOT, just like back home, nice and humid. Only bad part is everyone has their luggage but me. Hopefully it will come in today. Continue to pray for us as we minister to the people here. I hope to update daily if I get the chance. Pictures to come tomorrow!!!!

St. Vincent Day 2

I am letting Katelyn give you a synopsis of today- so in her words:
Becky and I attempted to have Chinese for bfast but it wasn't open yet. Our flight left at 10:00a.m. We got to Barbados at 2:00p.m. and are now sitting in the airport in Barbados getting ready to head to St. Vincent. Our flight leaves at 7:40. Well I (Chris) helped Katelyn out a little but you get the picture. We have a few pics of us in the airport (boring)!!! Sorry about the bad pics. My camera was dead so I took them with the video camera. Now that it is charged I will have better pics tomorrow!!
