Team Arrival

It was a joy to see First Baptist coming through the doors at the airport. I can tell it's going to be a great week as we see those bright smiles coming out. It's my first time working with this team and I am just excited to see what God has in store for us the week.

Service at Waldensia Baptist Church

by Lorna Clarke | March 31, 2024 6:03 PM

We were all excited to visit the local church on this Resurrection Sunday and to hear what God had for each of us, through his manservant, Evangelist Dave Messado. He presented a very inspiring sermon.  Nuggets:  Jesus was born in a borrowed stable, He rode into Jerusalem on a borrowed donkey, He preached the gospel from a borrowed boat and He was buried in a borrowed tomb...
