"Believers who are in humble circumstances are in a high position. We can find joy in that"
Hi Everyone, This is my 11th day in Jamaica (27/01/17). It is taking me a while to adjust to my new environment however during this time I have made some great contacts. I am staying at the United Theological College of the West Indies. The students here are lovely and dedicated to their calling into church ministry. I have had a few apointments that have taken me away from the campus. Many students have wondered where I disappear to so frequently but I am happy to share with them my purpose for being here. One of these has been to work at the Jamaican Baptist Union (JBU) office and intergrate with the staff. The JBU's annual Baptist Assembly is soon approaching so there is a lot to do. I have also met with the head of Y.M.C.A. I was introduced to the young men on their programme and helped with their class of 5 adults with special needs.
Today was an interesting and productive day where I met with the head of Woman's Inc. Whilst there I recieved loads of information about the amazing work they do. Thier primary aim is to work with women within the society but they also focus on vulnerable groups, the marginalised, abused and the discriminated. So it has been an eventful couple of days and I look forward to working more closely with these organisations over the following months. One thing that has been on my heart in the midst of this is the lack of resources and funding available to these organisations. I invite you to stand with me in prayer for resources and funding for the Y.M.C.A and Women Inc. I also invite you, if you feel led to perhaps do some research into how else we could help them. The most moving thing for me has been just how much these organisations have achieved with what they do have. I am humbled by their immense faith in God through all their challenges and successes.
I will now conclude with this quote as it sums up my entire experience so far: "Believers who are in humble circumstances are in a high position. We can find joy in that." I pray God continues to keep us all humble as we work in his name to help, encourage and uplift our brothers and sisters worldwide.
