Mission in Action

For the past few months, SPPC has been raising money for our mission work by selling soup and meat pies. Sunday, we upped our game with a luncheon after service.
The House Upon the Rock Ministry has undergone some hard times recently, with Dr. Wendy's husband, Pablo, needing life-saving (and expensive) surgery. As well as supporting his wife, Pablo runs the Christian radio station. He is a vital part of our ministry in the Dominican Republic.

Lunch, as usual, was delicious and "gratefully received." The money donated at the door will be  used to defray Pablo's expenses. As well as paying for the surgery, he needs follow up treatments.

Money is always useful, but prayers are sorely needed. And if you every wondered if prayer is effective, let me tell you about Pablo. He had to remain in ICU for ten days. During that time 200 people from his church gathered outside the hospital and said prayers for him. During that time, no one on ICU died. Four members of staff accepted Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour. Prayer is a powerful witness.
Please continue to pray for the House Upon the Rock and their ministry in the Dominican Republic and for Dr. Wendy and Pablo and Sharon and Paul and all who work to bring the light of Christ to the people in that part of the world.
Special thanks to Darlene, Joan and Diane for organizing this event and preparing the food.
