Honduras Update

Greetings from San Pedro, Honduras!
We just finished week two down here and we are loving it! Our team has been working with both the public health system and the private clinics. We have joined Honduran nurses in the vaccination process against influenza, measles, rubella, and other diseases.
Many times people aren’t able to receive the health care they need because of the lack of transportation to get to the clinics, therefore Salt and Light, an organization here in Honduras, has a mobile clinic program that we were able to help with.
Pictured above, is Abigail helping sweet Angel, who is two years old, learn how to walk.
We are excited to see what these next weeks hold for us!
Please keep praying for our safety and health, as well as the medical care needs of this country.  Pray for the spread of the gospel as God has allowed us to have a voice through medical service.

Philippines Update

Hello from the Philippines Team!

We have had an awesome experience here in the Philippines serving with World Team. The DeFazio family and Wright family have so generously opened their homes for us to stay with them, and have mentored us through every step of this trip. We have the opportunity to serve in a ministry called “Happy Family” that serves in a squatter community in metro Manila. We’ve led prayer meetings, visited the Threads of Hope ministry, and countless other things as we connect with the Philippino people. We have so much to learn from the people here. They are a people of community, laughter, and love to sing. We have made a valiant effort to learn their language, Tegalog, but we have seen that even with a language barrier we have gotten to know the Philippino people and share in Christ with them.  It has been beautiful to see the children’s ministry at Happy Family as they train the children from the squatter community in the way of the gospel.

God calls us outside of our comfort zones and he calls us to humility. Our team has learned that over this past week and we are so excited to see what God does with the last few days of the trip!

God is working here in the Philippines!

Italy Orchestra Update

 On Sunday, our team participated in a church service here in Italy. We were not only able to serve the people with hymns that they were familiar with, but also to take part in their worship service and worship and learn with them.

Pictured above are two of our team members, Hanna and Brianna, talking to middle school students after our concert. We were able to share the gospel and play sacred and classical music for them.

 

Laboring and Praying in Haiti

The team has been busy with the construction of the hospital as well as giving out formula and praying for mothers in a clinic near by.  Here are some pictures of the work being done and a brief word from Pastor Lubin…

The Cedarville Team and I visited the pediatric ward of the Les Cayes hospital. Somehow the Lord touched and blessed four amazing mothers with the gift of salvation, for themselves and healing for their little ones.

Yes we brought formulas for the beautiful but much needy babies, however the action that captured my attention was when one of the mothers after rejecting Jesus called me back and said, “Pastor please don’t leave me here without Jesus, I want Him in my heart and life.” Simply glorious! Thank you for your prayers and support this week.

Prayer for continued gospel opportunities with the students.  Thank you for your prayers!

Italy Orchestra Update

One of the places we have been serving is at an English Camp in Forli, Italy. The space is small, so we only had enough room for a few people to perform. A quartet played for all of the students and people in the community, and then our team members led the people in worship (with the help of the quartet), in worship songs sung in Italian. Sarah, a member of our team, gave her testimony in Italian.

Pray for continued opportunities for us to use music as a gateway for further gospel conversations.

Alaska Update

The team arrived over a week ago.  There are two groups to our team. The Glennallen group, works rotations at the clinic.  The second group–the Delta Junction team works at the other clinic site, roughly three hours away.
Highlights:
– Seeing moose, rabbits, sheep, and bears
– Learning in depth history about the Alaska natives
– Getting to know the clinic staff
Prayer requests:
– Delta Junction is experiencing a major forest fire, so prayers for their safety and that our team can still head to the clinic site.
– For the team to learn and adjust to the lifestyle here.
– Safety: from wildlife, forest fires, and health of the team in general.
Thank you all so much for your prayer support!

Prayer requests:
-That God would keep providing opportunities  to serve the people.

The Haiti team arrived and will be working in Les Cayes, building a hospital.  Pray for them to get plenty of work done that will contribute to the project.  Pray for their interaction with the Haitians to be Christ centered and gospel driven.

More Added to The Kingdom

Greetings from Côte d’Ivoire, West Africa! Our medical missions team is having an incredible experience serving the people of the Ivory Coast. We are excited to share with you that in the past two days, we have conducted two medical clinics, seeing 224 patients. At our first clinic, 52 people were saved!! We are eagerly waiting to hear who came to know the Lord today. We still have two more clinics to go, so please be praying for both physical and spiritual healing for the patients we’ll see. Praise God for the work He is doing here.
