Joel Kolb stood up front and talked about the fact that we are actually ministering to a community within a community. We are ministering to Belizeans and within that culture Deaf Belizeans. (or it could be looked at the other way around, ministering to Deaf, and Deaf within the culture of Belize. )
All of that to say we had 2 commissionings. We were first commissioned last week through our Deaf sending church: Connecting Deaf.
We were blessed to be a part of the service. Todd preached on all of our callings to the world. This can be right next door, or around the world. They had a time of prayer for us. (Of course I neglected to get someone to take a picture.)
They then treated us to an awesome lunch at Mission Barbeque.
This week as I stated before was our commissioning through Hopewell. Nathanael was confirmed as a pastor. We then had a time of prayer. The elders and our families prayed for us.
We had a time of goodbyes after the service. We were so thankful to those who came and spent this time with us!
Here is a link to the service incase you wanted to see the prayer time:
The prayer and confirmation start about 1:45:10
