In early September, Neal and Janet led a conference in Newark, New Jersey where they ministered to twenty-one Sisters of the Missionaries of Charity. On September 4th, the day after the conference had concluded, the Catholic Church canonized Mother Teresa, founder of the Missionaries of Charity. It seems that Mother Teresa lived for forty years of her ministry in spiritual darkness.
Matt recently returned from our last international trip of the summer to Georgetown, Guyana, accompanied by Miriam Wright from Ontario. Truly, they had a blessed and anointed time. While there, Matt led a ministry Team Training and an Unbound Freedom in Christ Conference. Guyana, the only English-speaking nation in South America, borders Suriname and Venezuela. It has a large forested interior and one major city, Georgetown. Culturally, the Guyanese connect with the Caribbean nations. Guyana has the highest suicide rate in the world and one of the highest incarceration rates. It was the place where the famous Jonestown mass suicide took place. The Men’s Ministry in the Diocese of Georgetown invited us to this place which has great need for freedom and healing. We were eager to share the love of God!
Matt and Bohus’ testimony about the trip to France told only part of what God did on that mission where the fields were ready for the harvest. The second half of the trip in Europe began when they arrived in Budapest, Hungary.
