We have nine people on the vestry.
At our annual meeting, on January 22, you voted for five new vestry members: Sharon Bauer and Carole Pope for two years; Susan Blakeslee, Rich Davis, and Colin Symons for three years. They join Richard Beagley, “Fish” Fischer, and Jennifer Riggs for one more year, and Dixie Samson for two years. Richard Beagley is our Senior Warden, and Rich Davis is our Junior Warden.
Deacon Nancy, as a clergy member has a voice at vestry meetings but no vote. Todd Riggs, our Treasurer, also attends vestry meetings and has a voice, but no vote. Their leadership will help St. Mark’s move into a new chapter.
Greetings from Honduras!
FEBRUARY And I’m off into year seven of serving in Honduras! I’ve been visiting with various families to check in on them, see what needs have come up in the community and just catch up on life having been gone so long. My surgery comes up frequently and I remind others that my survival and surgery was a miracle and gift from God. And that we must continue to give Him thanks and praise in good and bad times.
At our quarterly community meeting (like an HOA) the topic of our water shortages has come up again. It comes down to the need to invest in a larger supply line. The reality is that without the board soliciting external assistance and raising our rates, the project won’t come to fruition. Several folks solicited me to assist in funding the much-needed new roof on our Kindergarten building. I asked them to put it to prayer and I committed to do the same. The widow I mentioned last month, her immediate need has been met. A local Pastor is having a house built across the street from the land we wish to purchase for the Mission House. I take that as another sign in a positive direction.
Unfortunately, with the change in government here, many processes are not being handled as they had in previous years. This Fall I tried to get a medical extension on my residency renewal and was informed that was no longer possible, nor could we renew while outside the country. At the moment I am in a rather desperate need, I need change my residency to permanent status (my Religious Workers Visa) as I am now in my seventh year serving and that comes with an increased cost. I need $1600 this month to pay for all the legal documents, and paperwork processes, including renewing my passport at the Embassy. I’m prohibited from leaving the country during the renewal process. These are changes from the previous administration. Please pray over this urgent need and share with your church and prayer partners.
Our first quarter projects: water towers, septic and bathroom are on hold until we have sufficient funding in hand. I’ve explained this to the affected families. It seems as if we are asking you constantly for funding assistance and that is not our intent. Annually this is always our most difficult quarter. And with my surgery last year, I was unable to visit churches and families as planned.
Please prayerfully discern how you may walk with us in faith as we serve “the least of these”. Together we can make a difference in the lives of others by giving hope.
