This week our Rock Ambassadors in West Africa headed out to their villages to begin translating Bible stories for those who have never had the opportunity to hear the Gospel before. Their time abroad has been filled with many adventures already! The members of this team are the only vessels of the Holy Spirit for showing the love of Christ and bringing His word to people within a 100 miles of the location where they are serving.
The Rock Ambassador team [14 members] in Haiti did a major outreach at the Children's hospital in Jeremie this month and brought hope and healing in unimaginably miserable conditions. Drilling for the second well project has begun in a part of town desperately in need of drinking water. It's expected completion date will be 3 weeks from now – then 300 more families will have safe drinking water, avoiding infant mortality & water born disease like cholera. For these families, it will be the first time safe drinking water has ever been made available to them; they are being told that better than this well water, living water from Jesus is also available for the asking!
The Do Something Center in the Philippines survived three typhoons and the team there is assisting with clean up efforts as well as preparing for the arrival of twenty three IMPACT195 students who will be spending three weeks there completing projects entailing construction, school visitations, library installation and Do Something Outreaches. San Diego worship leader favorite, Trevor Davis and his wife will be joining the students for the journey. In addition four new long term Rock Ambassadors will join the team already there.
In Asia, our team is working diligently to teach english and build relationships within the local community in preparation for the starting a new school in that area.
God is using you, Rock Church, to bring pervasive hope globally. The challenges for our Rock Ambassadors continue to depend entirely on the One who does great things through them! Please keep them in prayer!
