1. Lunch is Served in Mayard
School has started back and we are thrilled beyond words to have the new food program up and going in the village of Mayard! We are so thankful to First Baptist Church of Loretto, TN for sponsoring the food program and to Summerville Baptist Church of South Carolina for sponsoring their education. This is a true testament of God’s people making a radical difference in the Kingdom by locking arms and working together!
2. Disciples Village Nurse to Monitor for Malnutrition
We are so blessed to have DV staff nurse, Andremene, making regularly scheduled visits to our schools! As part of the feeding program she documents height and weight to monitor for changes that indicate malnutrition. If any of the children show signs of malnutrition, their families are provided with additional food to help them catch up to an appropriate weight for their height. Additionally, Andremene provides instruction to the parents in each of our villages about what foods to add into their diet to gain optimal nutrition value!
3. A Big Welcome to Bethlehem Baptist Church
We are very excited to have Bethlehem Baptist Church led by Pastor Cliffton Sullivan of Greensburg, KY as our newest village sponsor! On September 26, 2020, Pastoral Training Director, Greg Estes, accepted a sponsorship check on behalf of Disciples Village presented by Mike Compton. We cannot wait to see how God works through this amazing partnership!
4. Making a Difference at Fontana
God continues to open doors for us to minister to the children who live at the Fontana orphanage. Several of our DV staff leads small groups weekly, and a few weeks ago Shersty had the opportunity to share a Sunday morning message with the entire group of kiddos who live at Fontana! We are so thankful to God for allowing this opportunity to love and serve our neighbors!
