Our New Assignment

Since moving back home to Dominica almost 3 yrs ago hubby has served as Assistant Pastor at the Greater Cornerstone Baptist Church. We enjoyed serving and being there. This was hubby's home church since he was a child.

A few months ago the Lord gave us a new assignment. Hubby is now serving as Senior Pastor at the Morne Prosper Pentecostal Church. On the evening of May 2nd there was a welcome service for us. Here are some pics of the service:

You can find more pics of the welcome service on the church Facebook page.

To continue, on Sunday just past - January 23rd 2011 - three days before hubby's birthdate, he was officially installed as Senior Pastor of the church.  It was a wonderful service.  Our former church Greater Cornerstone Baptist Church was there in impressive numbers as well as persons from churches all over the island coming from as far as Castle Bruce.  Here are some pics of the service:

I will be uploading more pics of the installation service on the church Facebook page as soon as I can but you can find pictures of other services and events there in the meantime.  Oh yeah, don't forget to click LIKE when you get there. (smile)  I also created a website for the church, check it out - Morne Prosper Pentecostal Church.

Needless to say our schedules have been so different and a lot busier.  The church is quite a ways from us and we have multiple services per week plus we spend the entire day there on Wednesdays ministering.  Hence the sporadic posting on my blog and the Fruitful Vine Facebook page. I'm enjoying being at the new church. The people are lovely and very welcoming. We covet your prayers as we seek to please the Lord in this new assignment. Thanks in advance.

    the compliment on the outfit. It is actually an African outfit but I didn't
    wear the headpiece this time.
