This prayer is one of the oldest poems in the Bible. It is a beautiful way to say thank you to someone for their love and care:

The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face to shine upon you,
And be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you,
And give you peace. (Numbers 6:24-26, ESV)

APRIL 2019 UPDATE

 

EPISCOPAL CHURCH OF ROATAN / NELSON AND KARA MINISTRY (August Update 2018)

Nelson and Kara Mejia were back in New Brunswick with their children for a short time this summer. While we were unable to arrange a time for them to speak at the Cathedral, some of you may have had a chance to talk with Nelson at the Ordination service and reception in June.

It has been wonderful seeing so many of our supporters again and meeting new people, too.
Our family is very grateful to all those who have hosted us and provided transportation and meals, and for the fellowship that has been offered. We sincerely thank you.
Things are going well in our churches in Roatán; the leaders are doing a great job. Our Dean, the Rev. Nery Varela from the mainland, visited our congregations in Roatán in our absence. We will return to Roatán to continue serving the Lord  – Nelson Mejia, July 2018

Spring Update from SAMS Canada

Dear Friends:

Easter has just passed but we rejoice with you at the good news of Jesus’ death and resurrection!

Please find attached the latest edition of our Prayer Calendar, which is full of news from Latin America. Read it to get the news and concerns and please hold up the work in the various countries in your prayers.

A special thank you to those of you who have continued to support Kara and Nelson through the Diocese of Fredericton*. They are almost half way through the three year agreement with the Diocese. Their financial support in 2016 ended up slightly short of what is needed. Please pray that their financial support will stay firm and increase enough to cover their needs.

Thank you, too, to those of you who continued to support the ongoing work in Chile and other initiatives in Honduras through the Latin American Mission**.

Lastly, we can’t emphasize enough how much we appreciate those of you who continue to support the work of SAMS Canada through your prayers and giving. We estimate that we need about $7,500 this year to enable Arlene and our Comptroller to complete their work; as you will appreciate, this is significantly less than our costs in previous years.

With our best wishes for God’s blessings on each of you who receive this note and the attached prayer calendar.

Sincerely,

 

Arlene Heale                                          Ruth Lee                                               Denys Reades
