TEAM MINISTRY TRIP TO THE SPANISH CHURCH-PLANTS IN ST. KITTS & NEVIS

Our family was invited to join a team from the Asamblea de Dios - the 'mother church' in Antigua - to visit and encourage their sister-churches in St. Kitts and in Nevis, Sep. 25th to Oct. 2nd 2010.

This will mostly be a photo-blog.  Pictures were taken by Beth, Christina, and Tim.  Of course, there was a lot that was not captured in photos. 

{If interested there are more photos in our Facebook account:  look us up ~ "TimandBeth Pike"}

Please keep in mind that this was really a ministry of the Spanish Church.  We were invited to go along, and we went as servants and team participants.  Our Spanish got a real workout as we were immersed perhaps more than we've ever been, for the 8 days away from Antigua.  There were also a lot of (sometimes very funny) miscommunications and misunderstandings, as I'm sure you can imagine. 

It certainly was an interesting trip for our family and in addition to many lives being touched by the power of the Gospel and the Holy Spirit, we ourselves learned much.

Team by Church

It was our understanding that though there's a substantial Dominican population in St. Kitts, this is the only Spanish Church on the island.
