Dear Ministry Friends,
We truly can’t believe we are starting our 25th year of Potter’s Field Ministries! Time surely does fly. Pam & I and the entire team and staff look forward to what God has in store for this milestone year! We would appreciate your continued prayers.
We would be remiss however if we didn’t share some of the highlights with you from 2016, that through your partnership, you helped make possible.
We started our first domestic Potter’s Field Kids Club on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in Browning, MT. We have deployed seven interns for service there and also hosted two short-term mission trips. We trained 42 interns in 2016 through the IGNITE Mission Training School at our Headquarters in Antigua, Guatemala where they ministered to thousands of children in our locations on four continents. (These were our two largest IGNITE classes ever and these young adults represented an equivalent of 21 years of missionary service.) We also hosted 18 mission teams at our Center in Guatemala where over 250 people from 16 different churches across America joined us to serve.
In our three locations in Africa, we have had some of our largest Potter’s Field Kids Clubs ever! In Uganda, we had 1,000 kids in attendance this past Saturday alone. We also did 17 island outreaches where 3,828 children were reached; in Kenya, 566 children came to PFK Club and our work in The Democratic Republic of the Congo has an average of 600 kids per week.
We have started a new PFK program & expanded our borders to a second location in a neighboring town in Costa Rica. I took a team and a potter’s wheel to Cambodia in Phnom Penh and did a presentation at our partnering church, New Life Fellowship. Our domestic horse camps doubled in size with 98 kids attending our 11 camps in Whitefish, MT from May through December. We partnered with Child Bridge & CASA ministering to foster kids and Lighthouse Home for disabled adults. We also hosted an annual day camp for 30 underprivileged kids from TurnAround Ministries from Atlanta, GA. We just completed a three-day Holiday Horse Camp.
As we reflect on all The Lord has done this past year, we can say without hesitation, we experienced the God “who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think.” Eph. 3:20. To Him be the Glory!! We could not do this without your faithful support & prayers. Thank each of you, our partners in ministry, for an awesome year!
‘Til the Whole World Hears,
