Miami Update 2

The last few days have been very busy for us! We ended up reconnecting with some old friends of ours at the end of last week. A couple of years ago, I spoke at a camp for some folks involved in the South Florida Ministries Association called Oasis. In fact, I’ve spoken for them 4 times: and it’s been a great time each time!

After a couple of Facebook messages, I was able to schedule a time to meet up with Kim from Branches and Stacey from KIX. We did a few songs for each group and reconnected with some old faces from our past. It was very exciting because KIX is now in a brand new building and Branches UMC is almost completed with their rebuilt church that had been burned severely 4 years ago. We are very excited for the way God has blessed and been growing their ministries!

On Sunday we attended Calvary Chapel Kendall and enjoyed a great service of worship and preaching. Around 2:30pm we left for the Keys and Bluewater Church. My good friend Phil Underwood is the pastor at Bluewater and this was our second visit to Bluewater. There were about 30 attending the evening. It was great to see Phil and Sherry and to be a part of their worship service once again! 1466036_10152407706247075_2150518907526687893_n

On Monday we started Spiritual Emphasis at Miami Christian School, where Mr. Woody Gentry is the principal. Woody’s a great guy and been a long time friend of mine and V2H and has had me at the school many times over the years. Things worked out well with the timing this year to have me back and I am thankful for that.

As we caught up on things before the first chapel, Woody informed me that as much as 40%-45% of the middle school/high school students were new with little to no “Christian” background. They had only had a couple of chapels so far this school year so this would be a very new thing for some of them. But I was up for the challenge!

Each chapel consists of singing, Trevor and I performing and then I share some scripture and lesson. Over the last two days, they have adjusted well to the signing and are enjoying it as worship. The messages seem to be connecting and they are listening well especially for having to sit on bleachers for that long!

In just these 2 days, I have noticed God working and I am very excited to see how things are going to end on Friday. Please be in prayer as I will share the gospel in tomorrow’s chapel at around 9:45am-10:35am. I am praying that there will be many souls added to the Kingdom of God.

We also got to schedule a surprise visit back to King’s Christian School today. It was great to be back there and lead a special chapel for those kids.

 

Needless to say, Trevor and I are both tired as we have been performing like crazy. Our arms, legs and feet are taking a beating. Our plan is to drive back to Atlanta area on Friday after the final chapel. I’ll update you again soon! Please be in prayer for tomorrow’s chapel especially and also for our upcoming Nicaragua/El Salvador Trip! I need to raise about $3000 between now and middle of October!

Thanks,

George

Nicaragua/El Salvador October/November

THE BEST THINGAVAILABLE

Dear Friends,

I am making plans for a return visit to Nicaragua and El Salvador in October/November. The trip will be in conjunction with my church New Vision in Fayetteville, GA. Right now there are 2of us with V2H attending and 3 from New Vision. This trip will consist of several different ministry opportunities. We will plan to travel to a couple of the same places we have been previously like Ten Tall and The Dump in Chinadega. We will also be visiting a nearby orphanage and ministering to about 20 children who live there.

Jorge Campos will travel from El Salvador and meet us in in Padre Ramos to help with translation, as well as, meet with student leaders and help with training and ministry opportunities. We plan to have several teaching and training modules in addition to the usual Bible study times each evening.

Trevor and I will then leave with Jorge on October 27 and travel by bus to San Salvador, where we will be until November 4. During this time, we will have a few training sessions with V2H El Salvador leaders, along with the leadership of the church plant “The Church” under Mario DeValle’s leadership. Mario planted this church about 3 years ago and has been growing much since that time. We are excited about the privilege we have to invest in their leadership and training. We will also work with some other college age Americans who are there for Global Year, through First Baptist Woodstock. We will do some mission training exercises and of course we will perform some sign language and host a couple of events for outreach.

To cover Trevor and my expenses and help cover Jorge’s travel to Nicaragua, we need to raise about $1000 more. Then I am also trying to secure another $2000 to cover a trip to India in late November to work with some church plants and orphanages. The $2000 covers everything from round trip flight to housing etc. This is a very good price for a trip like this. So all told, I need to generate $3000 over the next few weeks. This is an enormous amount of money for the time frame, I understand. With life as it is for many of us, it would simply be unthinkable. However, I do believe in a God who is able and in friends like you who are generous and want to help.

Would you simply consider a gift of $5? Do more if you can but $5 from everyone I know on Social Media could be enough to get me, Trevor, Jorge in all the places I’ve mentioned and then get me to India and back a couple of times easily! Your contribution would be helping us make a significant difference around the world. Please prayerfully consider making a tax-deductible contribution at www.vision2hear.com

Thanks!

George
