1 Peter 4:10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace.
IT TAKES A TEAM! A few years ago it became obvious that help was needed here at Don Shire Ministries. As God blessed us with more opportunities to serve, it became very difficult to keep up with the many details that arise.
We asked God for help. AND HE ANSWERED!!! WE ARE SO THANKFUL FOR OUR STAFF AND VOLUNTEERS! We would love for you to know some of those who make it all happen.
God Almighty! He continues to lead this ministry in marvelous ways! He put together the team below. He gets all the credit! (There isn’t enough room here to tell of His awesome leadership!)
Don Shire represents the ministry in churches and other venues. Along with other duties required in the office, he oversees the ministries to orphans and widows in India and Haiti. He also recruits mission teams and leads most of them. Don is also president of Sandy Bay Lighthouse Ministries, an outreach to the orphaned and abused children on the island of Roatan, Honduras.
Kathy Shire is our Office Manager. She does just what the title describes in overseeing all the details in the office, and she oversees the widow’s scarf ministry. (She also keeps Don in line…the best she can!)
Priscilla Eastman does the bookkeeping. She also volunteers to organize and implement the Child Sponsorship Program. Her husband, Craig, assists Don with Mission Teams.
Ruth Garcia schedules concerts, sends the info to the pastors, and provides the details to Don.
Shan Glewen coordinates the short-term mission trips. She takes care of travel details and provides valuable information to team members as they prepare for their trip.
Crystal DeLong maintains the e-mail list and gets it out in a timely manner each month.
Debbie Short collects the mail, sends the information to the bookkeeper, and helps get Don’s concert supplies stocked and ready for travel. She also helps in many other ways in the office.
Dan and Jane Pierson do all the planning for the annual Mission Cruises. This is a huge responsibility!
Pastor Prabhu Varam heads up the “Faith In Action India” ministry to the orphans and widows. This is also a huge responsibility and would be very difficult without him!
Pastor Cenor Lineus is an evangelist and pastor in Haiti. He and his wife, Merline, care for the children and all the details of running the “Faith in Action Haiti” orphanage.
YOU!!! Without your prayers and financial support the team could not function.
It is hard to start mentioning names as there are so many others that help in countless other ways. We wanted to begin 2015 by thanking our team members for their wonderful service and especially thank our God for sending such wonderful people to join us in ministry! We are truly blessed! As we continue to grow, we will need more volunteers. As God leads, please feel free to contact us to see where other opportunities to serve might be.
