Dear Friends
Over the last year, many prophecies were given about 2020 being the year of
fulfilled promises. We in Arise pray that this will be your experience.

For many years, you have joined us in praying for God's purpose to be realised
in Barbados, without knowing what that would look like. Then, in 2018, God
started to reveal to us the idea of a memorial stone which was expanded into
the Circle of Remembrance at St Margaret's Church. Knowing it was God's
heart to heal this deep wound, we made a commitment to do this work. Now
it's 2020 and the year for this to be fulfilled. On 20th May 2020, there will be a
service when the memorial will be dedicated by Bishop Maxwell.

We are so thankful to everyone who has sown into this project so far, however
there is a way to go yet. We have been quoted for the work in Barbados and
the stone has been commissioned in Ireland and will be shipped over, the
same as the people were. All this needs financing and this is the first time in
22 years we have asked for funding. We have raised £8,048 so far.

So how can you help?
1) Pray. We are in no doubt it's God's will, but we also believe it is
important to give everyone the opportunity to sow into this healing so
that the Poor White descendants know they are not forgotten.
2) Spread the word, which hopefully will create opportunities for me to
come and share the story, particularly in Ireland and Scotland.
3) Fundraising and/or encouraging people to donate through
www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/circleofremembrance.

We trust our Heavenly Father to guide us as we continue this journey together.
It's a privilege to do this work for Him and we give Him all the glory!

Abundant blessings in Christ for 2020.
Shirley, Katie, Annette, Vanessa and Val

Thank you so much for your donations so far. We have raised over £8000 which has enabled us to begin work on the memorial. However, there is quite a way to go if we are to cover all the costs. So we were wondering if you would be able to share this around in hope that we might be able to reach more people and raise more funds...

We have a 15 minute video which we would love for you to watch and share as much as possible. It explains the history in brief and how we got to where we are.

A quick update on the current progress:

· The memorial stone is ready in Ireland to be shipped to Barbados, the cost of which still has to be covered.
· Anthony Hunte from Huntes Gardens in Barbados will be taking care of the planting. As the soil is poor, we have been requested to purchase quality soil. We are, of course, happy to do this, but again, the cost of soil and plants is yet to be covered.
· We are returning on March 9th to check on progress. As always, this is at our own expense. This will be the final visit before May 20th (when the service of dedication and unveiling will take place), so there is much to do and funds to raise in the coming short weeks.

Thank you for your help so far. Please share.

So Churches Together in England is offering a poster to encourage #prayersofhope....
