His Love Shines - CCCD Wrap-Up

Posted onJune 27, 2014 | by: Seth Carter | 0 comments

You wake up every morning, humidity heavy enough to get out your scuba gear you had to pay $6 for. Everyone is waking up earlier than they were in the beginning of the week. This can be due to no one having any energy when the sun drops below the water just over the cinder block wall in the distance. When the clock strikes 10, we’re out like a light....Keep Reading

James and Lauren Peavy - Summer 2014

Posted onJune 24, 2014 | by: James Peavy | 0 comments

When writing about "un-reached people groups" John Piper states, "a group is reached when mission efforts have established an indigenous that has the strength and resources to evangelize the rest of the group" (Let the Nations be Glad. pg 216). According to this definition, Mongolia is far from the status of a "reached" nation. What I witnessed over the past two weeks was a nation that is almost entirely under the iron grip of Satan as they engage in the enslaving practices of spirit worship and Buddhism. As stated in our prayer letter a few weeks ago, I was given the unique opportunity to go on a construction/missions trip to the town of Khatgal, Mongolia. While the ...Keep Reading

Today is Thursday, I think, and today we are looking forward to what our chef calls "Jamaica Day" for dinner, extra large helpings of traditional Jamaican dishes after visiting the infirmary this morning and then back to our projects for the afternoon....Keep Reading

CCCD Mission Trip 2014 Day 2

Posted onJune 17, 2014 | by: Seth Carter | 0 comments

After a cool shower (no hot water but it still feels great!) last night we woke to a delicious 7 a.m. breakfast. After that we joined the CCCD students and staff for chapel. It was totally done in sign language from the singing to the preaching. But luckily we had our translator, Charles Stores, with us. It was inspiring to see the deaf community worshiping our Lord. After chapel we shuttled out to Bay Life Baptist Church. That was another great experience. We were seated with about 60-80 people in a room a little bit bigger than the mixed adults Sunday school classroom (or the size of two average master bedrooms). We had a great Father's Day sermon encouraging dads to show up for their wives and children and be the leader to help them thorough life's chaos....Keep Reading

Sorry folks. It is late Sunday and I just got access to the internet. I'll send you some journal reports today and try to get pictures later. I'm writing this to you at night overlooking Montego Bay lit up by all the house and city lights along the shore and mountainside, and hearing Jamaican music blaring from different houses surrounding us. Here we go!...Keep Reading

Peavy Prayer Letter - June 2014

Posted onJune 5, 2014 | by: James Peavy | 0 comments

These last few months have been quite busy. We have appreciated all the prayers, calls, and cards we have received. Now we are beginning to get into the swing of deputation with a new baby. Our latest trip has taken us to Central Florida. We have enjoyed fellowship with several different churches. Worshiping with fellow believers and sharing with them our burden for Australia is always a fun experience. We especially enjoyed being a part of a Word of Life Teen meeting at Northside Baptist in Lakeland. James and I have such a heart for teens that any opportunity to interact with them or minister to them is such a blessing....Keep Reading
