To All my dear Friends and supporters,

Over the past five years the Lord has given me wonderful opportunities to minister in the Caribbean through music , spoken word and just being His witness in many situations. Over the past two years I have partnered with the Salvation Army and Living Word World Outreach to reach out to those in need in the small Caribbean island of Grenada. Most recently I ...was in Grenada this past September where I had the opportunity to minister by running a day camp program called “Camp Gospel Rock” for 27 children from the surrounding community. I also spent time teaching and coaching their local praise and worship team encouraging them to write , record and share original praise and worship music. I worked with a team visiting the local jail where music rang from the rafters and hope and life in Christ was proclaimed and 10 men made decisions for the Lord, having the courage to stand amongst their fellow inmates to declare their need of Jesus in their lives. I made weekly trips to the Salvation Army Day Care and preschool working with the babies and children sharing stories , music and helping to feed and cuddle those precious little ones. One of the many highlights of my trip was my regular visits to the Dorothy Hopkins Centre for the disabled, which cares for 40 children, youth and adults with a wide variety of special needs. Again we shared music , stories and our love of Jesus together, just reaching out , touching and being touched by the lives of those often forgotten by most of society. I have special memories also of my visits to the Richond Hill Home for the Destitute..better known as “The Poor House”. As I sang and shared with some of the residents there I could hear a harmonica being beautifully played from the lower level of the institution…as I investigated I know a beautiful elderly gentleman who had lost his sight..we shared some time playing old time hymns together with him leading me….Singing “ I surrender All”….As I left on my final day..he said to me….”don’t forget about us …you come back and see us again”

My heart has been touched by the beautiful little children, the abused young teenaged girls I sang with at the Emergency Shelter for children in need of protection. By the faithful, gifted brothers and sisters in Christ toiling away as best as they can under sometimes extremely difficult circumstances.

But a single voice cries out to my heart….the gentleman from “the Poor House” saying ..don’t forget about us..please come back and see us…..

My heart has been called by the very voice of Jesus to go ….to the orphan, the widow, the poor, the forgotten, the abandoned, the imprisoned…as be His hands , his Feet ..His voice of hope and compassion.

As I believe God has called me to return to Grenada and come along our brothers and sisters there, bring my skill, gifts and talents so a minister, a musician, a social worker , as a sister…..I believe I must step out in faith and go where He is calling me.

I am reaching out to those who have supported me and ministry over the years and asking if you would like to help support my work and ministry in Grenada as I try to save enough money to return to Grenada for three to six months and continue the ministry that God has begun.

I don’t know how God will go about accomplishing this. . Every dollar that I make will go towards this mission trip.

I would love to come and share my heart at your church , women’s group, youth group…if you would pass this on to anyone who might use me in such a way it would mean so much to me.

If anyone is interested in perhaps sponsoring me individually , perhaps on a monthly basis, that is also a possibility.

You can reach me by email at cathygoddard@sonshinefamilies.ca, on facebook at Cathy Goddard or by phone at 613-834-8187 ex. 28.

God Bless you All!
