Lighthouse Send Off
Blog post written by Jenni Ramsey
His Hands His Feet is incredibly thrilled to be sending our first team from TX to serve in El Salvador on June 24 in partnership with Lighthouse Christian Fellowship. This past Sunday the team was commissioned by the elders in the church service. The Lighthouse children's ministry collected hundreds of stuffed animals to send with the team. They joined us for the send off to pray over all of the children who will receive the stuffed animals. It was a powerful time of prayer and commissioning.
Our team consists of eighteen volunteers from TX, AL and CA. We have seven teenagers on the team (ranging from ages 13-18) and our youngest team member, Elianna, is eleven years old. This is an incredible group of servants! Please pray for our team as we prepare this week. We are deeply humbled to take the hope of the Gospel to the beautiful people of El Salvador!
"Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness. When he saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd. Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few. Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers in to his harvest field.” - Matthew 9:35-38
