Summer 2016 :: Ryan Hellpap, Kingdom Workers Field Manager: Caribbean
Dennis, like many people in Grenada, never learned to swim. In March, he attended an event hosted by Grace Lutheran Church and National Learn to Swim Week, because he wanted to learn in a safe environment.
This Easter, a team taught swimming safety for all ages as part of an Easter for Kids program in Grenada.
Quickly, a friendship was formed with two volunteers that they and probably Dennis never expected! As far as anyone knew, he had never met anyone from Grace nor knew much about it. He now knows of the kind, God fearing, and grace giving family of believers. American volunteers, Karen Kilchenmann and Pam Hunt, patiently worked with Dennis and through a lot of laughs demonstrated the Gospel to him. Dennis has promised to return for swimming lessons with local Grace swim trainers. This relationship can only grow.
