1 Peter 4:10 (NIV)
Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
We are God’s hands and feet. We are volunteers. We are serving ministries and missionaries of Guatemala by repairing vehicles, encouraging, helping to streamline processes within their office environments, and by showing them that God has a plan to work together and not be discouraged.
We volunteer in 2 areas at this time.
Lawrence partners with missionaries and ministries to keep their equipment in good, safe, working order. This really is anything with a motor. He is also training a Guatemalan to be able to do what he does when he is not available or needs an extra hand. They are keeping missionaries on the road safely so that they can spread the word, feed villages, and help children.
Jo has partnered with ministries to help them be more effective by organizing and streamlining their processes. This allows missionaries to manage more effectively and grow their ministries and footprint. In turn, helping more people, bringing more people the Gospel, and encouraging those who may not have hope.
Together, Lawrence and Jo, are helping to keep missionaries from burn out and leaving the field by simply helping to take care of some of the basic needs.
1. Continue to encourage and empower ministries and missionaries
2. Fill the need for transition of teenage orphans from institutions to Christ-Centered adult living. There are very few opportunities for them once they leave the institutions.
We have been blessed to have found a Guatemalan to partner with us and manage this home. The next step would be to secure the funding needed to be able to rent, pay utilities, and furnish this home. Estimated cost for a year is $15,000
3. Share our ministries partners with others through visits or teams.
4. Our personal finances to be fully funded by May 2020. We are still $1500 per month shortage. This results in credit card usage when we have to travel. We have seen growth in our monthly supporters but we still have room for improvement.
As we continue to pray, for you, your families, our ministry, and that we all can listen and follow God’s will no matter where it leads or what it tells us all to do. We know the power of prayer and continue to experience it every day in this beautiful country.
Thank you so much for your love, support and prayers – we appreciate you and could absolutely not do this without each of you!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year,
Lawrence and Jo Adams
