June Update DR
Tami, Megan and I are happy to report our new ministry efforts.
Child Development Center
In March, we launched our weekday Child Development Center. This is where we minister to the children of our community and church. The age ranges from 3 years to 11 years old. The strategy is to reach: body, soul and mind. Therefore, we feed them a free meal, teach the Bible and require additional school work. This has been a tremendous amount of work; however, we are seeing the fruit from this ministry. The average attendance is 33 children. We know that the future of the church is among these young people.
First Ladies Meeting
In May, we hosted our first ladies meeting. We invited the mother's of the Child Development Center, the members of the church, and the ladies of the community. God blessed us with 25 ladies and 50 people in all with teenagers and children. Pastor José's wife Virginia brought a challenge to the ladies entitled, “What is a godly woman?” We fed all 50 people and the ladies were thoroughly blessed. We are still striving to obtain credibility and trust in the community. The people are beginning to trust us.
Mother's Day Celebration
We celebrated mother’s day on May 29th. Once again the Child Development Center gave us an opportunity to invite more first time visitors to the church service. The children recited two memory verses and sang two songs. Also, they had made a mother’s day craft to present to each mother. Three of the mothers were first time visitors. Once again the Gospel was presented to these people from the community.
God Bless You and thank you for your prayers,
Earl, Tami and Megan Hammons
