Building in the Kingdom

30 Jul

AAsia Const projectt Living Word Community Church we have been able to come alongside ministries in other countries to help them build churches, recreation facilities and other buildings to share the love of God. That can be done through donations to help buy materials and/or physical labor to help with the construction. In south central Asia there is a school that needed a covering to protect the children from the hot mid day sun. This past week they made progress on the foundation of the building. It is a great start to lonDSCN3608g awaited project.

Over the past 9 years in Guatemala, we have been privileged to help build 65 churches in the rural northern  part of the country. We provide a portion of the materials and work alongside the Guatemalans to build a place of worship. They invest in their own community by raising the rest of the funds and then helping us build their church which is an amazing partnership. We are blessed to have some great partners to work with there.

Water Project in Ethiopia

16 Jun

When we began our ministry with the Project Adopt A Village (PAAV) team in Sendafa, Ethiopia there were so many things that needed to be worked on.  The health of this rural community outside Addis Ababa was poor, often because of poor sources of water and no sewers.   Disease is easily transmitted when the sanitary conditions are bad.  Here in the York area we don’t think twice about the possibility of sickness and disease because our water and sewer systems are very good.

To have an impact on these disease causing problems we have had a number of projects through the Christmas offering and the Global Missions budget.   Through those offerings and a lot of hard work we have successfully drilled a high producing well AND a water storage reservoir that will provide safe drinking water for the city.  There are still a few details that need to be worked out but much of the work has been done.  Your donations and prayers have been felt and you have made a difference in the lives of the people of Sendafa

Taking the love of Jesus to the world is the purpose of the Global Ministry at Living Word. For over 25 years we have supported people who have gone to the field, sent short term teams to minister to others, provided the resources to complete many worthwhile projects and encouraged those who are led by God to go.  In addition to the new website and blog we also have a new logo highlighting the world we serve.

At Living Word we have established our priorities around:

  1. God’s Plan
  2. People
  3. Programs
  4. Property/Projects

This blog will be focusing on the same priorities as they relate to Global Ministry.  There will be posts related to where and how God’s Plan is working around the world.  We will highlight some of the People who we partner with in various locations, The Programs that we support will be introduced and frequently updated.  It will discuss the various Projects that have participated in that have transformed and blessed many.

I invite you to join us on this journey of Global Ministry at Living Word Community Church.  It is an exciting and fulfilling expedition that I know you will enjoy.
