WELCOME NEW COORDINATORS!
We are delighted to welcome JACK & HOLLY WILLIAMS as our new District Work & Witness Coordinators! They are members of Indy Grace Pointe and have great hearts and minds for missions! They are already at work, making plans for our next district trip to Equatorial Guinea, as well as local district service projects. They have previously served on Work & Witness teams and are eager to work together with teams to advance God’s kingdom globally.
Work & Witness and JESUS Film trips are slowly beginning to reopen, so you will be hearing from Jack & Holly with exciting news! You may contact Jack at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NATIVE AMERICAN CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
A District Team was forced to cancel the trip scheduled for October of 2021 due to a Covid outbreak at NACA. Consequently, many boxes of school supplies were shipped via UPS. Members of this same team are planning to go in June of 2022. The team represents several district churches.
Another team from the Indianapolis District is scheduled to go to NACA in October of 2022. It has become a highlight of the year for many participants. Below are glimpses into some past trips.
MALAWI – Lakeshore District
2013 & 2015 Work & Witness Trips
The 2013 Indy District Work & Witness team was the first team to participate on the Malawi Lakeshore District when they began construction of the Phase 1 (first) building in November 2013.
Team 2 members departed Indianapolis International Airport at 6:00 AM, July 2 and returned on July 18, 2015. They participated in the dedication of Phase 1 building (below). They also began construction on Phase 2 building.
Rev. Bill Bean had the honor of dedicating this building on Sunday, July 12, 2015. Rev. Paul Mtambo, Central Africa Field strategy coordinator, and missionary Wellington Obotte also participated in the dedication.
MALAWI – Lakeshore District Centre, Phase 2
Malawi 2015 Team began construction on Phase 2 (second building) at the Lakeshore District Centre in Salima, Malawi. Team members participated in VBS with children in the area. The team also participated in two JESUS Film showings. Praise the Lord that more than 170 individuals accepted Jesus Christ as their Savior in response to the invitation at these events.
The Lakeshore District Centre will provide facilities for pastoral and leadership training, discipleship training, and district gatherings. It also serves as a venue for community events.
May God be glorified in each life and in the collective impact of these teams.
