This Summer At-A-Glance (Part 3)

This the final recap of the summer as we celebrate what God is doing in Jamaica. Lifepoint has been serving in Jamaica for the past 7 years, this year building our 15th, 16th & 17th Little Blue House.  We ask of you to interceded on behalf of the people of Jamaica and the ministry there.

  • Praise the Lord for how He continues to draw people to Himself.  Our first team had planned daily Bible studies with the men and women.  On the second day of their trip, 10 minutes before the planned start time, no adults were around.  A group went aside to pray that the Lord would bring people to hear His word.  5 minutes later a group of 4 men and 1 woman walked up the hill, sat down with us, and the Gospel was shared with them.  
  • Pray that the Lord would do a mighty work in the local church in Jamaica.  Pray that barriers created by class and legalism would be broken and that the church would desire to love and serve the ‘least of these’ (Matthew 25:31-46).
  •  Pray for the IsleGo staff that we work with year after year. Ask the Lord to work in the lives of Bobby, Red, Damain, Gregory & Million.  Pray that God would grant the strength to resist conforming to the patterns of this word and be transformed by the renewing of their minds (Romans 12:2).  Praise the Lord for our friendship with these men and for the way that they care for us year after year while we are in country.
  • Pray that God would grant wisdom and align our vision for next steps in planting a Hope Center focused on discipleship in one of the areas in which we work.  Pray that the right partner in Jamaica would step up and that the ministry could begin.
