Please pray for Jeremias this weekend as he serves the Lord as our Kid’s Club leader. He is also our boat driver who moves teams and kids around the different islands. He is one of the many volunteers that make the river ministry we have developed work. He has a family of his own and brings his kids along to participate in the ministry. It is common that he will have his son tell the Biblle story to kids at story time. It is exciting to us that our Lord has brought men like Jeremias for us to work with.
We are now in fundraising mode as we travel and visit our supporting churches. There have been some changes in our financial support structure. Costs of gone up and a number of our supporters have died over the past few years. To get us back by June we are seeking one time gifts from friends like you. There is a need of $16,000 in additional support for 2018.
Please consider prayerfully giving a gift this year to our ministry. Our mission will take checks or online gifts. To give online use this link Gifts For Patton, Wayne & Ellen .
To send a check use this link How To Donate. Please keep us in your prayers.
Stephine is leading our women’s group on Thursday Morning. Please pray for her ministry that Ellen and her share. It is a small group of women that meet to make crafts and to hear the word of God told a story. The ministry continues to grow as you lift it to the Lord in prayer. Stephine is a new believer who has a desire to reach her neighbors at the Farol Beach on the island of Cotijbua.
Mario is our Possum island kids club leader. The kids club is located in a remote part of the river 11 miles from where we live on the island of Cotijuba. They will meet Saturday and tell the kids stories, sing and teach them about Jesus. The work is a small but growing slowly. It is in a remote part of the river, so it is difficult to travel too. Pray that we will see fruit in this ministry on Saturday.
