Aruba STM October 15 Update


Prayer Request

Due to severe weather, Team 2’s plane has to be stopped at the Hamilton Airport for refuel. They will not be able to catch the connecting flight and will not arrive on schedule. The pilot has not made an official announcement but it is very likely that they won’t return back to Edmonton till later tomorrow morning.
Thank God that they are all in good spirit. For those team members who are supposed to work tomorrow have successfully notified their employers about this situation.
Please pray that they will have a safe trip back. Please also remember their physical condition as they may not have had any proper meals since they left Aruba.

Prayerfully,
Caleb… Click here to read more

Aruba STM October 14 Update

 
Prayer warriors, thank you for your two weeks of consistent praying for us! With your prayers, we can make it through the two weeks of short term mission. Satan has been working hard to hinder us in many ways! With God’s grace and the power of prayer from you all, we have worked through it and experienced the sweetness of walking with God!

Thankful items:
1) Praise the Lord. Team 2 has experienced the blessing of our Lord in the 2nd week of short term mission at Aruba. We get another week to share with and visit the local Chinese.
2) We are so thankful that none of us have to use any medication that we brought along, which means we are all in good health, except the bug spray and after bite Chinese brand medicine. Our legs are however decorated with dots (mosquito bites)😭

Prayer Items:
1) Pray for the Saturday sisters’ fellowship. We invited some non-Christian ladies to attend. Pray that they will participate in the fellowship!
2) Pray for our team on Sunday morning to lead children and youth fellowships. Like last week, Tammy’s laptop has sound problem again. With the last week experience and without Caleb being around to help reinstalling the sound card driver, we will save the presentation files on an USB drive and transport the files to church old laptop for use in the fellowships.
3) Our team has checked in our flight and pretty much packed our luggage. Pray for a safe trip back to Edmonton and our adjustment of the temperature, from 33 degrees Celsius back to 0 degree Celsius or may be even lower! Some of us will go to work in the next morning, pray that we can sleep a bit on the plane and have the strength and energy to go to work the next day.

Thank you all! If I don’t have much update tomorrow, will see you all and share with you more when we return.… Click here to read more

2) Pray for the team as we will be leaving in 2 days. Pray that everything will go smooth and fly back safely! We will help to lead the morning fellowship before heading to the airport!

Aruba STM October 12 Update

 
Dear prayer warriors,
It’s another day of thanksgiving! This morning we went to the church and tried to clean some garbage and leaves out of the front entrance of the church. After that, we finished the VBS DVD packaging and took them with us for visitation.

Thankful items:
1) The weather was still hot but with more clouds and wind, so we were able to spend about half an hour to clean up the garbage and leaves in front of the church.
2) We went more visitation afterwards, mainly targeting the VBS children and their families. The parents were more friendly and happy to see us back to visit them. We also invited some parents to join Saturday fellowship and they would consider to join.
3) DMM training part 2 was finished tonight. Sisters enjoyed the training and were encouraged from it.

Prayer items:
1) Pray for the “Back Care” workshop and clinic tomorrow night. We will be going to the North side to host this workshop at a restaurant. If God is willing, North side is a place where gospel can be reached out to. Pray for Bruce, give him wisdom and health to present the workshop and help people in the clinic.
2) Few more visitations tomorrow, pray for our team members. Ask God to grant us wisdom to share the gospel with the prospects. Let us show our caring and bring hope to the people here.
Thank you all!

1) Today’s visitation went well. Team was split into 2 groups, one in the morning visitation (Bruce, Lena, Jenny), one in the afternoon (PMiranda, Ken and Jenny). Prospects were positive and kind to us. Give thanks to the Lord for Tammy as well, she finally finished the VBS Recap DVD and could bring along for visitation as gift to the VBS children’s family.
2) Praise the Lord, the workshop tonight about back care went really well. Responses were very good and many of them asked Bruce to return again to help them. While Bruce was providing free treatment, we made use of the opportunity to talk to the guests and their families or new friends.

Prayer items:
1) Pray for Lena and Bruce DMM course (2nd part) to be held tomorrow night. Pray for the local church sisters (the leaders) who will come to join, ask God to prepare them and give them a willing heart to step up to serve.
2) We will continue with visitation tomorrow. Pray for the wisdom, wise tongues to talk and humble ears to listen.
