Dear Co-Laborers in Christ,

 “Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare his praise in the islands.”
Isaiah 42:12

Greetings from the Isle of Spice where the weather is hot, hot and dry. The tropical breezes are blowing hard and homemade kites are everywhere which is a sign that wet season is on the way. Most of the kites are made with flaps so they sing when they fly. Special events are held all over the island and the schools set aside a special day to fly kites.

While the kites were flying, we began preparations for our Easter services. The church received a good cleaning and redecorating. Carrie’s choir learned some new songs and invitations were handed out encouraging everyone to attend our Sunrise Service, breakfast, and worship service. The church was packed for both Easter services, three children were saved, and our church gave the risen Savior the glory and praise He deserves.

The pre-school closed for Spring Break, and Robert got busy building an additional storage cabinet for the classroom. Pat and Carrie had the joy of filling it. Please pray for the pre-school registration as we have had a lot of visitors attending church services to check out the pre-school and to let the children get to know Teacher Carrie. The pre-school has been a tremendous means of declaring God’s praise here on the island of Grenada.

On the last Sunday in April, we had another reason to give God glory when one of our moms gave her life to the Lord. Her son, Quannel, had been coming to church with some of the other children for the past year. Now Quannel’s mom brings him to church.

What a privilege it is to give God glory and praise from this island for all His marvelous works. We are thankful to be a part of it and to be able to share these blessings with those who have faithfully supported this ministry. Together we are declaring His glory and praise in the island of Grenada.

In Christ,
