Extending our ministry
Discipling youth in the city of Consuelo.
Our young adults work hard all year to share the love of Christ with children and their families. We love to see the children learn and grow in their relationship with Christ over the years. One thing I don't often mention is how much I love to see God working in and through the young adult leaders on our team, as well.
The young adults in our ministry are incredible. Not only do they spend every Saturday in ministry to children and their families, but throughout the week they are preparing lessons, snacks, leading discipleship classes, doing craft workshops for adolescents, teaching English, preaching on the radio, and meeting together for prayer and fellowship. They are determined to use their time and talents for good in the Kingdom of God.
I'm constantly amazed at the way they are able to lead this team, keep up with their responsibilities at home, school, church and work, and take the time to share their faith and disciple others.
Our leadership team, has been working with new groups of young adults in San Pedro, a city about 45 min from Hato Mayor, and El Seibo, a city about 30 min from Hato Mayor for the past two years. This June God has opened a door for them to extend our ministry to a group of young adults in Consuelo, a city about 25 minutes from Hato Mayor.
Two of our leaders travel on Wednesdays to Consuelo to give a discipleship class, and then they return to Consuelo again on Thursday afternoons to talk about leadership and explain our ministry to them. By the end of the summer, we hope to commission these young adults from Consuelo to ministry right in their neighborhood.
As God leads you, will you take a minute to pray for all of the young adults on our team - for their personal needs and for their ministry? May God continue to use them for His glory and reveal His love for them more clearly.
