Over the span of three weekends, Wyatt Park Christian Church in St. Joseph is welcoming two of its global mission partners. Brother Henry Bhasker from the Good Shepherd Mission in Puttur, India visited with Pastor Scott Killgore during the 9:15 Service October 22. Wyatt Park has partnered with Good Shepherd since 1998, has sent monthly financial support since 2000, and periodically sends mission teams there. Good Shepherd operates orphanages, a school, three hospitals, an HIV/Aids facility, an elderly care facility, and supports 15 village churches, all in southeastern India.
On November 4-5, Wyatt Park will welcome Gerald Emmanuel, pastor of churches in Cambridge and Holland, Jamaica. For 15 years, Wyatt Park members Dr. Tom & Susie Alderson have partnered with those two congregations to organize medical and dental mission trips to southwestern, rural Jamaica. A 35-member medical and dental team will travel to Jamaica in late January 2018, to serve in Jesus' name in a part of Jamaica that tourists don't see.
