Refreshed!

Connecticut Team with us

Philemon 1:4-7 I thank my God, making mention of you always in my prayers,  Hearing of your love and faith, which you have toward the Lord Jesus, and toward all saints; That the sharing of your faith may become effective by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus. For we have great joy and consolation in your love, because the hearts of the saints are refreshed by you, brother.

A group of 16 people from my home church United Baptist church of Ashford,  a group from Eastford Baptist Church,  one man from Nehemiah Network from New York state,  and another gentleman from Georgia came to be with us for 9 days. During this time they worked on putting up a new ceiling in the main dining hall and painting other building in the camp in mornings and then in the afternoons a group of us went out to do evangelism in the schools and door to door. Our hearts are really refreshed and we enjoyed this time so much! The memories and the laughter will last for a long time and we are greatly encouraged to continue to fight the good fight of faith!

From the bottom of my heart I want to thank Pastor Pat, Ashley, Luis, Jennifer, Erik (Jeff), Amanda, Chris, Diane, Paul, Chris, John, Joan, Kaitlin, Sarah, Charlie, and Terry for your love and the sacrifices you made to come here and encourage us! You rose early in the morning, worked hard and then participated in many evangelism activities without giving a thought to yourselves – always looking to encourage others. We love you, we will miss you and look forward to the next time we can be together – either here in El Salvador or with our Lord Jesus when He calls us home. You are an incredible bunch of people and I pray the Lord will bless and refresh you in ways that only He can.  And also to the many people back home who supported you in prayer, financially and with their love – thank you!

Proverbs 11:24 One man gives freely, yet gains even more; another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty. 25 A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed.

Refreshed and under His wing!
