I come to you today with a request for prayer and for help. Many of you
know that my wife Krista and I have been missionaries in Jamaica for
the Caribbean Christian Centre for the Deaf (CCCD) for nearly a year now.
Throughout our time here we have seen people saved and lives changed,
and we have felt the support of our home church the entire time. I have
transitioned from “work team coordinator” to the “campus manager” of
the Jamaica Deaf Village (JDV) which is part of CCCD. With that title I
am now responsible for all the happenings on campus.
A number of things have happened in the past months that have brought
this campus into a very hard spot financially. The Jamaican government
owes us a large amount of money that is late and that may not even come.
I was counting on that check since it comes every fall, but because
there is a small likelihood of ever seeing that money, JDV will not be
able to pay its bills this month. We have a number of once-a-year bills
due this month as well. We have gone through everything here and
pursued money generating ideas, but we are still falling short. We need
a miracle. I would like to invite you to be a part of the miracle for
JDV. First, could you please pray for us here? We feel very passionate
about the things that are going on here. Without prayer we can’t even
hope to continue our ministry. Also, please consider giving a donation
to help us make it through. You can easily give online, and your gift
will be tax deductible. We have work teams coming in January and
several crops baring that should help us once we make it through the
end of the year. I also believe that JDV will no longer have to worry
about being in this position next year. We are setting things in place
and saving money that will help us greatly next year.
Thank you for taking time to read this and for praying about giving to
the cause. No gift is too small. You can give at www.cccdjamaica.org.

Thank you so much and God Bless you,
