MG Reach: Jamaica Missions 2018

Once again, by God's good graces, Maranatha members are hard at work on the mission field in Buff Bay, Jamaica, serving a church and community we've had the pleasure of working with for several years. Let's continue to pray for the Jamaica team over the next week as they serve in various ways -- providing medical care, lending a helping hand to the local church and brethren there, and faithfully preaching the Word.

MG Reach: Jamaica Missions Update

Hey everyone, as the team has been busy serving the people of Jamaica, they have not been as available to provide extensive updates.  To be honest, we know that sometimes these posts can get a bit lengthy but praise God for our man of few words but many actions, Dr. Tom Yuen for providing this short, concise, but comprehensive update and for Ricky Chae for providing some pictures!


Writing this message while waiting for patients.  We've had a great week so far.  Been busy at clinic but not overwhelming.  Was impressed seeing Joann step up and help out with the clinic but also she has been leading a woman's small group with the discipleship program.  Boys have been doing a great job whether it's directing traffic at the clinic, teaching kids at VBS, singing in front of groups, encouraging other youth or just praying/ reading the Bible out loud.   The dads might be having a better time than kids.  I think each of us have enjoyed the team devotions and rotating through the men's discipleship class.

Welcome to MG Reach: Maranatha's Missions Ministry

 

1806. That year is etched in my mind. 

Tucked away in Mission Park is a small monument, a stop on a tour of the campus of Williams College. Unadorned and hardly impressive. 

I can still hear the sophomore tour guide’s chipper, rehearsed spiel: “This is the Haystack Monument, which commemorates a prayer meeting held in 1806 by five men who took cover under a haystack during a thunderstorm.” Quaint and forgettable.

Only years later did I learn that a worldwide missions movement was born under a haystack.
