The LORD has revealed to Bethany that she is a house of God, full of joy, living with her hope anchored in Jesus Christ so that her life may be a testimony to the shalom that Christ has in store for everything; that there may be no person without hope firmly anchored in Christ.
Bethany has been serving the Lord with MTW in Nicaragua since 2016 with an English Ministry. This ministry supports the church through empowering them to reach out into the community with the English classes. People’s hope is anchored in Jesus as they share the gospel through the classes. Students are empowered to leave the cycle of poverty as they are equipped with the English language.
Currently, she is also partnered with World Renew coordinating, training and supporting a Trauma Healing Ministry. This ministry supports the church as they are able to train pastors and local leaders. People’s hope is anchored in Jesus as they are reminded of His closeness and care as they encounter loss, pain and trauma. Participants are empowered to live as survivors instead of victims.
Bethany enjoys how these ministries allow her to address the wholistic needs of those she works with. Ultimately, hope is awakened in both students and participants through these programs as they encounter Jesus through Bethany and the team of Nicaraguan teachers, pastors and facilitators the Lord has provided.
“However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me-the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” Acts 20:24
