TeamREACH push­ing to make a dif­fer­ence one soul at a time

Jamaica Gleaner - - FAMILY & RELIGION - Shanna Kaye Mon­teilth Gleaner Writer Fam­ilyan­dreli­gion@glean­erjm.com

WHAT BE­GAN as a vi­sion from God soon de­vel­oped into an ini­tia­tive that has led to the de­liv­er­ance and heal­ing of many souls in Christ.

Ac­cord­ing to Jowayne Fran­cis, one of the heads of the project, REACH Min­istries is a group of young peo­ple who are pas­sion­ate about liv­ing a life of servi­tude to God by walk­ing in His will and pur­pose for their lives.

Also re­ferred to as TeamREACH, there are 20 peo­ple in the group who Fran­cis says were all di­vinely se­lected.

He told Fam­ily & Re­li­gion that the or­gan­i­sa­tion serves both evan­gel­i­cal and char­i­ta­ble pur­poses.

“Our main fo­cus is stated in our acro­nym (REACH), which means Reach­ing and Em­pow­er­ing a Christ­like Heart. It was our in­ten­tion for it (the min­istry) to be a foun­da­tion, but while seek­ing God about what we should do, He changed the vi­sion to a min­istry,” Fran­cis shared.

DE­LIV­ERED

The five-year-old non-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion was es­tab­lished in and op­er­ates from St Thomas and has so far hosted three con­fer­ences un­der the theme ‘Di­vine Out­pour’.

Fran­cis was pleased to re­veal that

tes­ti­monies com­ing out of the con­fer­ences in­clude those of souls that were saved and em­pow­ered, those that were de­liv­ered from op­press­ing spir­its and sick­nesses that were healed.

The man of God also added that there were tes­ti­monies of prophetic words de­liv­ered through­out the con­fer­ences.

“Sev­eral min­istries have in­vited us to be in charge of prayer, fast­ing, and coun­selling. We’ve

also in­cor­po­rated with the Ki­mola BrownLowe’s Min­istries, where we will be do­ing coun­selling, prayer, prayer and char­i­ta­ble

deeds for the Yadel Girls Home,” Fran­cis said, point­ing out that the or­gan­i­sa­tion will em­bark on its own phil­an­thropic ven­tures.

TeamREACH is ex­pected to start a feed­ing pro­gramme come next week at the Saun­ders Ba­sic School in Mo­rant Bay, where it will be pro­vid­ing break­fast for the stu­dents there.
