Lent is the Christian season of preparation before Easter. The Lenten Season is a time when many Christians observe a period of fasting, spiritual disciplining, and self-denial. Our hope is to experience God’s renewals, refreshing, and blessings.
This year Lent will begin on March 6 and end on April 21. During the six weeks of Lent, we are asking you to make a commitment to fast from one or more of the following:
- a food or drink
- refrain from a bad habit
- watching TV
- computer games
This year, we are also asking all of our members and partners to participate in this Lenten Season Devotion Book – 46 Days of Experiencing God. Experiencing God’s physical healing, pulling down strongholds, fulfilling assignments and healing financially.
FCIM has been serving in Goshen & Bartica, Guyana South America for 19 years. In partnering with the Guyanese over the years, we have been able to:
- build a church
- start guardian programs
- preach evangelistic crusades
- provide financial support to families and projects
- minister in the schools
God truly blessed the work of FCIM in Guyana last year, as we were able to birth several new initiatives to support the community:
- Built a wood furniture shop
- Purchased a brand-new boat for transporting families to work
- Praise God… we were able to implement a program to assist abandoned women and children
Our goal this year is to continue strengthening these ten abandoned mothers and their children. The funds collected this Lenten season will be used to improve their houses, their workplaces, as well as their children’s education.
Starting on Wednesday, March 6, and for the next 46 days through Saturday, April 20, we are asking that you complete one devotional lesson per day and set aside $1 each day for these10 abandoned ladies in Guyana.
FCIM thanks you, in advance, for having the heart to join usin this worthy venture! It is importantto note that we will be traveling to Guyana March 11-23, 2019. You are more than welcome to travel with us. For more information contact our Mission Director, Nina Watkins, 240-882-6881.
