Our Team Is Growing!
Partnering with Food for The Poor in Guyana
Over the past several months the door has opened for a healthy partnership to develop between our ministry team and Food for The Poor (FFTP). FFTP is an international humanitarian organization with a long and very visible presence in Guyana. Our strong relationships and presence in remote villages gives FFTP an opportunity to expand their outreach in areas beyond their current reach. To date, combining the donations from our financial partners, with resources received from FFTP, we have distributed food and other urgent supplies to more than 300 families in more than 10 villages. Additionally, many supplies have been distributed to the Venezuelans coming across the border fleeing the horrors in their country. These efforts are made possible by the blessings of God, the generosity of his people, and the hard work of our team on the ground in Guyana. These demonstrations of, “loving our neighbor,” are setting the stage for a strong gospel advance in 2021.
Growing the Team
Global Faith Approves 3 More Teammates
This month we are happy to report that Global Faith Mission Agency has approved 3 more members of the Grace Ministries team! Steve and Gina Gant, along with Joshua Templeton, bring great strength and diversity to our team. Steve is retired from the US Navy and brings a wealth of administrative and leadership expertise to our team. He will greatly increase our scope and effectiveness in discipleship training. Gina, as our campus host, will use her organizational skills to help us run efficiently, as well as enhancing the success of the teams who come for short term ministry opportunities. Joshua adds a unique depth to our team with his gifts as a musician and vocalist. His contributions will certainly enhance our worship ministries and discipleship efforts. Our U.S. team is now 8 strong, and eager to combine our gifts, skills, and passions with our very dedicated Guyanese counterparts.
