The Arno Story
In the top center picture of CTC is Pastor Waston and his wife Jammey. They are currently Pastoring the church on Arno, Arno.
We told you in our last post about our trip to Langnaar. Today we would like to tell you what is going on in Arno. Pastor Deek and his wife a few months ago went to Hawaii for medical treatment. The church called on Pastor Waston and his wife to come in and take over until Pastor Deeks return. I remember when these two first started CTC. Waston was new to the Lord but had a desire to serve. He knew that God had called him to pastor. He and his wife started CTC when Lew and Mariesa Davis were still here in Majuro. We came along side Watson and Jammey and watched the Lord radically change their lives.
Since they have been there on Arno we have seen God use them to change an atoll. When they first got there the church had about fifteen members and no children's ministry. Now there are over fifty in the church. Jammey saw the need for a children's ministry. Jammey was trained by Shawn in children's ministry here on Majuro. After the training she has been continually active in children's ministry. Now every Sunday she ministers to twenty five to thirty children on Arno. Praise the Lord! Waston and Jammey are moving forward in the name of Jesus. God is using this couple for His glory. We have had reports since our trip there that the numbers have continued to increase. People getting saved, healed and set free. During CTC's time there we went door to door and helped support this couple in their work. Please pray for Watson and Jammey as God uses them on Arno for His glory. They are doing a great work. Thank you for all of your prayers and support. You are truly our partners in the Gospel here in the islands. Your support helps pastors on Majuro and the outer islands reach people for Jesus. Thank you!
Running with the Vision,
Steve, Shawn, Travis, Stephen and Richard
