It is with great excitement I write this report to share with you about the Lord's work at the West Bay church. June 1st, marked our first year anniversary ministering to the congregation and the West Bay community. I thank God for our partnership in helping the saved to remain faithful and evangelizing the lost. Me, my family and the church continue to look forward to the great work the Lord will continue to do through our partnership. In this report I will highlight the work that has been completed in the months of July and August.
In the month of July (11th -18th) a group of brethren from the Cayman Islands (including me and my family) traveled to Jamaica. We had a great time being encouraged by the different lecturers. We also had an awesome time reconnecting with old friends and meeting new brethren. We look forward to attending the 2015 Annual Caribbean Lectureship in St Thomas (United States Virgin Islands), Lord willing.
Whenever I remember this year's VBS, I become teary eyed. Our VBS took place from July 31st - August 1st. It was very uplifting to see so many brethren involved in helping make our Vacation Bible School a success. We had more than seventy-five children present each night between the ages of 5 and 16. It was a remarkable experience seeing the church, the youth and parents involved in our VBS. We are already looking forward to our Vacation Bible School in 2015.
In the month of August our congregation assisted the congregation on the Eastern side of the island in welcoming its new minister. Daniel Mayfield and his wife Miranda moved to Grand Cayman from Denver, Colorado. Daniel is a graduate of the Bear Valley Bible Institute of Denver, Colorado. He and his wife are very good friends of ours. I ask for your prayers on their behalf as they do a great work in the Cayman Islands. The West Bay congregation hosted the "Joint Congregational Service." Brother Daniel Mayfield did a wonderful job in encouraging the brethren from the word. In addition, in the month of August we had three families in our congregation who experienced the death of a family member. Please keep in your prayer the: the Johnson family, the Watson family and the Ebanks family.
Lastly, for the past two months I preached sixteen sermons (AM & PM), recorded eight radio sermons. In addition, I conducted a bible class series on words that are often misused by the church in our midweek bible class. In our Sunday morning bible class, we are learning about New Testament Survey. I have made six hospital visits and shared seventy-four pieces of literature. Presently, I have eight individuals who are interested in becoming Christians. They all have requested further bible studies; therefore, myself with the assistance of others are fulfilling that request.
My family and I are enjoying our work with the West Bay congregation. We continue to solicit your prayers as we labor for the Lord in the Cayman Islands.
In Him always,
Minister, West Bay church of Christ
