FRIENDS of PEI
of NEW things at Project E.A.R.T.H. International . . . and it has been so great!
ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME "NEW" AT PEI
In August 2005, Project E.A.R.T.H. International was blessed to welcome Fikeveni Dlamini (17) and Mbongeni Bhembe (16) as Ambassadors to Youth in the USA. To say it's been an amazing year really doesn't do it justice but I am at a loss for words to express what the LORD has been doing in the past 11 months.
In this online newsletter we will attempt to share with you what the LORD has done during this year and where we are headed in the future. For those of you who have been praying for us . . . thank you. For those who are just checking us out . . . we pray you will be encouraged and blessed by what you read and pray for us also. We're excited about the future and what GOD has in store for all of us!
Fika & Bo are full-time/long term missionaries and they will be in 11th grade at Lancaster Mennonite High School. They are missionaries on their campus, in our community and everywhere we go.
Project E.A.R.T.H. International is: Evangelizing Always, Reaching, Teaching and Helping! We promote personal evangelism as a lifestyle - not an event. Our goal is to be constantly reaching out to those in need, teaching those who are willing to learn and helping those who need to be challenged and encouraged to be bold in their witness to their world.
As a team - whether leading a weekend retreat, youth event, youth group, camp or Bible study - we attempt to get to know the people we are ministering to and personalize the message we bring. The songs that we write and sing help us to communicate clearly the message GOD has called us to bring. From the youngest child to the oldest adult we get positive comments about our ministry and it is both humbling and refreshing.
We promote FAMILY! In this world filled with opportunity and activity being a "family" becomes a challenge. Many a home has become more like a "hotel" with individuals checking in and checking out. Gone are the days when the whole family sits down morning, noon and night for a meal. Mom has become the shuttle driver/courier.
Our desire is to help families reconnect. We strongly encourage youth to develop solid/open/honest lines of communication with their parents. We challenge older youth to spend time with younger brother and sisters. We remind them of Ephesians 6:1,2 an the promise God has made them. In our society we replaced our family with "friends" and sadly - many youth actually have made the "enemy" their friend.
"The future is coming - we know - for from it we have come!"
