Alabama Team Ministers at Jireh
By Rod and Sherry Boyd

Construction continued at the Jireh Good Shepherd School with the arrival of the Christ’s Fellowship MAPS team from Double Springs, Alabama, lead by Pastor Mike Joyner. The team of 14 included 13 men and women and one high schooler from four different churches, including a pastor from Mississippi.

The team’s main focus was laying block for the exterior and interior walls for the third story. The team also formed and poured several bond beams in addition to some “high up” block work on the second story. In total, they were able to finish the equivalent of three classrooms during their week of work.

The team ministered in a chapel in the middle of the week. Pastor Rick Smith shared a devotional on resisting the devil with the 400 children and youth present. The team presented two trunks of school supplies, toothbrushes and toothpaste for the children, and a couple of soccer balls. They also presented each child and young person with a bag of candy at the end of chapel. The team also left vitamins and other medical supplies that will be sent to our two Guaymi Indian schools: Duima and Soloy. The school gave a small gift to each team member.

The chapel really helped the team connect with the children. They also brought several bottles of soap bubbles and enjoyed time interacting with the kids. We are very thankful that three team members chose to sponsor one of the Jireh School children.

The farewell service on Friday night was powerful. Amy, one of the team members, shared in music. Pastor Mike preached an anointed message about the importance of unity in the church. It was a prophetic word for the church, reminding the congregation that they must stand together to reach out to the community around them. Pastor Johnny Saucedo thanked Pastor Mike and the team for their good ministry and said, “You are an answer to our prayer.” The congregation lingered after the service, visiting with the team.

Pastor Mike and team, thank you for your humble, serving spirit. Thank you for being so generous, not only giving things, but more importantly, sharing your lives with the children, youth and teachers from the school, and with the Panamanians that worked alongside you.

Please pray that every need would be met to complete construction of the Jireh School by the end of the year. We have two additional building teams that will be coming. But we need additional construction offerings to be able to complete construction. If you are able to help, you can give an offering towards construction of the Jireh School on the Assemblies of God secure website. Please specify “Project 7795, Jireh School” in the comments field. Or you can send your offering to:
