Pray for Ketly and Vital Pierre

June 15, 2010 PrayerCall
Ketly and Vital work on the Atlantic coast of Nicaragua to strengthen local churches and encourage existing churches to plant new ones. One way they do this is by leading and coordinating seminars and workshops. Through these sessions, pastors and leaders of local congregations learn how to strengthen the ministries of their churches. Their ministry is a holistic, "hands on" endeavor in which they walk and work alongside local people, building relationships. They also work with people in local churches to educate against drug abuse and drug trafficking.

They also serve as a link with American Baptist churches in the U.S. for volunteer groups. The groups are matched with local ministries according to where they would be the most effective. The Pierres invite leaders and short-term missionaries, pastors, businessmen, teachers, and professors to present seminars and workshops.

 Ketly and Vital have been on U.S./Puerto Rico Assignment and will soon be returning to Nicaragua. They have been to Haiti this past year to assist in relief efforts with American Baptist missionary Kristy Engel who serves in the Dominican Republic.

Pray for Ketly and Vital as they return to Nicaragua and continue their vital ministry of pastoring a dynamic congregation, ministering to their community and training Christian leaders.
