Ministry of Compassion

Compassion Ministry An Amazing Platform To Share The Gospel  Jesus saw the multitude of people (Matt. 9:36) and was moved with compassion. They needed help, hope and direction. The Good Samaritan saw a need (Luke 10), had compassion, and got personally involved. Compassion serves the needs of others. The Good Samaritan gave financial provision to the Inn Keeper to care for the wounded man. The Inn Keeper then became involved in ministering to the wounded man. Compassion ministry is not a spectator sport but it gets people involved and plants vision.   Why in this parable didn’t Jesus choose... Read more

Canon City, CO Revival Meeting Testimonies

Canon City, CO Revival Meeting Testimonies This 24 day tour was centered on a week of revival meetings in Canon City, Colorado. Coming and to and from Colorado were one night stops in prisons and churches in the states of Indiana, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and Nebraska. We are so grateful to God for all the open doors and opportunities on this journey. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7 -Dave Miller I praise God for bringing your family to Skyline Mennonite...

New Building Project

    New Building Project Phase 2 A year ago plans were set in motion for an addition to the office (Phase 1) for much needed additional offices and a conference room. That addition is completed and we are enjoying the fruits of many generous donors and laborers who helped. The plans for Phase 2 have been finalized with our Executive Board. We plan to break ground sometime this spring. This larger multi-purpose building (as pictured) will provide housing for house parents and new housing for our VS staff, along with much needed storage, and finally: a permanent structure for...

Uganda March Mission Testimonies

Uganda March Mission Testimonies     March 2-13, 2016        Refugee Camp, Compassion House, medical clinic, prisons…   My African eye witnessed the construction at the compassion house. The Pennsylvania team through giving clothes and food to refugees, Bibles, soap to prisoners, helping at the medical clinic, and various construction projects, revealed such a hardworking heart. The locals thought that they had prepared enough materials for construction only to be surprised that in 2 hours all materials were finished! Therefore, let us not only give to people, but also teach them to work… to work hard. Thank... Read more

Bible Study Courses

Bible Study Courses “Teach me O Lord, the way of your statutes” Psalms 119:33a God has really blessed the Bible study course ministry with being able to send Bible studies all over the US & Canada. We are working on a Spanish translation of the Roman’s course, a big project that should be done by the end of 2016, Lord willing. This will open up more opportunities for people to become involved; people that can read and understand Spanish to be able to grade tests and to communicate with Spanish-speaking inmates. I would like to say “Thank You” to... Read more

Sean Bontrager Family

Farewell Sean Bontrager Family In September, 2013 Sean, Lori, and their 7 children made the move from Westcliffe, Colorado to Columbus, North Carolina. They were brought on board as a singing team… and sing they could! God blessed the family with incredible harmony and gifted Sean to write a lot of their songs. Many of you have been familiar with the family’s journey, and specifically the ongoing battle that Lori has had with Lyme’s disease. Life on the road has made it difficult for Lori to build her strength/immune system up and therefore brought uncertainty in scheduling tours and... Read more

Bring my soul out of prison…

    Bring my soul out of prison that I may praise your name. (PS 142:7a) Don Price came from a family of bootleggers and thieves where doing “time” was normal. He was sent to the Indiana state prison after being shot and wounded in a bank safe cracking operation. His life-changing moment came during a prison chapel service where a blind girl sang “No one ever cared for me like Jesus” and her father preached about the Rose of Sharon and the Lily of the Valleys. Once released from prison, Don led his father and a host of relatives... Read more

International Ministry Reflections 2015

Uganda-Kenya-Nigeria “It is indeed more blessed to give than to receive.” Acts 20:3 It’s been said that we make a living by what we get but we make a life by what we give. Your giving is helping to transform lives, make beauty out of the ashes of sin, and bring hope to many who find themselves in seemingly hopeless conditions. The 2015 mission teams were privileged to work alongside our Ugandan brothers and sisters in the prisons, refugee camps medical clinics, children’s ministry, discipleship seminars and construction project. In the January mission we had the privilege of sharing... Read more
