Southeast Caribe Mission June 2014 news

  1. 1. Southeast Caribbean Dispatch May/June 2014 Newsletter We ended April with a little Staycation here on the island. We just got away for a weekend and had some quiet time together. This was taken one evening at dinner. Several have mentioned missing “Kandi’s Komments”. It may show up every so often, so please keep looking for it. Church Villages Men’s group and right now they are going through the book by Henry Blackaby, The Man God Uses. This is the Enterprise Church or Christ meeting. Several of the Men’s Group’s are getting together every so often for joint fellowship and it seems to be going over well. Mother’s Day is a big thing at Church Village Church of Christ and this year was not a disappointment. The men went all out in treating us well. Dr. Lenard Thompson was visiting from India for a Preaching Clinic and Evangelism Seminar and he delivered the Mother’s Day message. It was even reported in the local newspaper with many quotes by him.
  2. 2. Such as this one…….”A mother’s love can prompt repentance . . . . A mother’s true love will do its best above all to protect her children from going into eternity without Jesus Christ”. Along with special ministry in song and poetry, mothers of the church participated in a hat competition. Here they are picking the finalists. Allyson, the one in back with the tall hat won first place. She had pictures of her children and all the things a mother does for them on it. Sorry, her face cannot be seen. The church was full that day with over 175 people and seating was set up outside also. First time in a long while that we needed seating outside. Was great to see!! Lunch was catered by the men and they did the serving. There was seating inside and out. This is something the women will now have to duplicate for the men on Father’s Day. We were also blessed to have Dr Thompson in our home several times in his two weeks here
  3. 3. for dinner and we also got to take him out and around the island with us several times. We took him up to Chalky Mt pottery shop and got pictures up there. Look how dry the island is. We have had over 100 fires this season, way more than last year which we thought was a bad one. There is very little green anywhere this year. Reminds us of California in the summer, all brown! After our trip up Chaulky Mount we had a very nice lunch out on the ocean’s edge on the other side of the island. We have finished our Discipleship class at Oistin’s Church of Christ and will truly miss meeting with them every Sunday evening. We are praying that they have learned a new way of living the Word in their daily lives. The group from Oistin’s Kandi’s Komments I have heard that this section was missed?? It was left out last time because I ran out of room but will try and fit it in when I can. As we close this newsletter, we are already in the states having a great time visiting supporting churches and family. Lots of pictures lined up for next time too, so be looking for it the end of August. I will be going to Antigua for the Caribbean Youth Convention and after that, we will both be going to Grenada. So August will be very busy and very hot I am sure. Please pray for us and the youth as we travel and they compete in the Bible Bowl on the book of James. Blessings in Christ, Orvel & Kandi.
