Every year, we all take some kind of vacation. But what about doing something in 2018 that would make a difference in the lives of people? Volunteering is vacation with a purpose!
Renaissance Outreach Ministries offers some great opportunities to travel and work with people in a variety of developing nations. Like children? Why not help out at orphanages in India and Uganda?
Retired? Why not help to train teachers in Uganda? For those with medical backgrounds, help is needed at the South Rwenzori School of Nursing and Midwifery in western Uganda.
All volunteering are low cost adventures. There is time to get to really know the local people, rather than just playing tourist. And there are opportunities to do some fantastic sightseeing.

Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt, President of Renaissance Outreach Ministries along with board member Deacon Nathan Dunlap recently enjoyed the three day Annual Meeting of the Missionary Society of St. John the Evangelist (MSJ) in Liberty, Kentucky.
The MSJ is a small society of Anglicans who have committed themselves to following the Rule to govern their lives. The MSJ is in many ways a modern day monastic order open to both clergy as well as laity.
The meeting celebrated a time of prayer and fellowship. They welcomed Bishop Morales of the Diocese of Quincy, Illinois. Bishop Morales is the Bishop Protector of the Order.
The meeting lasted from Oct. 26 – 28, celebrating the many ways God was worked in the lives of both the members as well as their churches which are scattered around the United States.
Renaissance Sends Bibles to India
Renaissance Outreach Ministries has sent Bibles to Rev. Cornelius Sikala of Yellamanchili, Andrea Pradesh State in eastern India.
Last year, Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt, president of Renaissance Outreach traveled to Yellamanchili to help teach and train pastors for Rev. Cornelius. Instead of teaching, he ended up coming down with pneumonia.
It was a rough time for everyone as Pastor Cornelius and his family helped to nurse Pastor Jan back to health. While there, Pastor Jan was able to witness some of the work that was being done through his ministry.
Pastor Cornelius and his wife Therisa have started 181 churches in mostly Andrea Pradesh state. Their work not only includes starting churches, they train pastors, operate an orphanage as well as doing training to help the Christians learn useful skills. Many of their people come from the Untouchable backgrounds, so they need skill training.
Renaissance Outreach Ministries has been impressed with the work Pastor Cornelius is doing there in India. At their request, we sent Bibles in the Telugu language.
Anyone wishing to donate Bibles to Pastor Cornelius can do it through Renaissance Outreach Ministries. Bibles are just $4 in the Telugu language and donations can be sent to:

Rev. Jan L. Beaderstadt, president of Renaissance Outreach Ministries of Greentown, Indiana has been appointed chaplain of the South Rwenzori School of Nursing & Midwifery in Kasese, Uganda.
This appointment comes at a time when Renaissance Outreach Ministries is recommitting itself to the work of training pastors in Africa where it started back in 2000.
Pastor Jan will be doing spiritual training with the nursing and mid-wives who are being trained to work in the mountainous regions of western Uganda near the border of the Congo. These areas often lack any kind of health centers, resulting in a high loss of infants as well as shortened life spans for its residents.
Pastor Jan will be spending March and April of 2018 in Western Uganda. At other times, he will be helping to develop contacts with medical personnel to come and help do short-term teaching assignments at the school.
