Jill Whitaker and I will be leaving for Belize early Thursday morning, Nov 14th. We will be joining 2 more team members; one from Russellville Baptist Church and one from Albertville Baptist Church in Alabama. Please pray for us as we travel to serve with Hearts of Christ Children’s Ministry in Roaring Creek Village.
Our international shipment to Belize just arrived at the mission site today in Roaring Creek and is awaiting our arrival for unpacking, sorting and storing. The shipment contains all the school supplies and backpacks for the school sponsorship program for August 2014, lots of household items for the H.O.P.E. House (soon to open on Hearts of Christ mission site) home for children and 400 Christmas packages for sponsored children. Many of these packages came from Manley Baptist Church as 101 children are sponsored by members of Manley. Praise God for each sponsor, prayer warrior and supporter of Hearts of Christ Children’s Ministry!
God has continued to bless the ministry as seeds have been sown, cultivated and harvested over the last 11 years. Our team will be distributing the Christmas packages to the children as we celebrate the wonderful season of Christ’s birth with each and every one; we will be visiting in many village homes and sharing the good news of the meaning of Christmas and why a Savior was sent by God to die for us on the cross. We are so excited and ready to go as commanded! Keep up with us this week as I will post as much as I can about what God is doing in Belize as we go about His business.
Blessings, Carla Jennings
