Man-o-war Cay From a shipwreck in the 1800’s came this designed town of the Albury family grown famous as shipbuilders, sailmakers, and seafarers. Now... heartbreak and loss endured again with 3 resilient churches!
“Hope Responder” team | April 23 – may 3, 2022 | pray!
Pray for the team in these ways: 1. Teaching the Bible’s Hope Response to Loss, Pain and Grief to rebuilders. 2. Door-to-Door reception and safety in the 3 areas of the city center,“Farm” of Haitian illegals, and shipbuilders. 3. Souls to be saved who were made ready by the storm they survived. 4. Puppet connection with hurting kids to learn of God’s presence in pain. 5. Healing and help through spiritual warfare prayer and His Word. 6. Encouragement to local churches and members in their endurance. H
