November Field Report

Never Give Up

Spiritual Warfare and Sin: The Cost of Quitting
For consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners against Himself, lest you become weary and discouraged in your souls. You have not yet resisted to bloodshed, striving against sin.—Hebrews 12:3-4 If Satan opposes the new convert he opposes still more bitterly the Christian who is pressing on toward a higher life in Christ. The Spirit-filled life is not, as many suppose, a life of peace and quiet pleasure. It is likely to be something quite the opposite. Viewed one way it is a pilgrimage through a robber-infested forest; viewed another, it is a grim warfare with the devil. Always there is struggle, and sometimes there is a pitched battle with our own nature where the lines are so confused that it is all but impossible to locate the enemy or to tell which impulse is of the Spirit and which of the flesh.... My point here is that if we want to escape the struggle we have but to draw back and accept the currently accepted low-keyed Christian life as the normal one. That is all Satan wants. That will ground our power, stunt our growth and render us harmless to the kingdom of darkness. Compromise will take the pressure off. Satan will not bother a man who has quit fighting. But the cost of quitting will be a life of peaceful stagnation. We sons of eternity just cannot afford such a thing. That Incredible Christian, 73.
"Oh God, don't ever let me compromise to take the pressure off! Keep me fit for battle; strengthen me for the constant warfare. Don't ever let me settle for 'peaceful stagnation' as long as I have breath to serve You. Amen."- A.W.Tozer

The temptation is to give up. The temptation is to give in. We are encouraged to stay in the fight. So once again this update comes with a connection to a heavy heart. We have had many days in the past month tied to extreme physical difficulty. These difficult things have given us yet another opportunity to press in to our Heavenly Father and rely on Him for our strength and comfort. I will merely highlight some of the things we have been faced with as to not sound as my mom would have put it “a broken record”.
Hurricane Sandy visited here before making her way to the east coast of the United States. She brought us 12-18 inches of rain in just a few short days. Our roads were washed out and we had more time than usual without power. Many people had water in their houses and had to deal with drying out their personal belongings. By God’s grace we had no loss of life where we live due to the storm. That was not the case for Haiti just 50 miles to the west of us. Over 40 people in Haiti lost their lives. So my neighborhood and I got together and we spent a day repairing our roads so that they would be passable. It was great to see everybody who uses the road chip in and work on it. Many water pipes are broken in our communities and a few cisterns have had problems causing people for many days after the storm to stand in line to receive water at a few projects that have a private well or water source. The main water pipe coming from the San Rafael River was broken and this is the supply that Everest a water filtering company uses to supply the water that they purify and sell in 5 gallon jugs (like Cloister etc… in the US) and they were out of drinking water for 3 days. We found another place that sold water. I bought 10 gallons of water from them and Jen and I both got sick from this water. Thank God the drinking water pipe has been fixed. As I am writing this (more than 2 weeks since Sandy) we just today were able to buy the pipes to fix the water to our house and pray we are able to once again get a secure water source for our family.
Jen’s friend’s mother,  Flor has been battling TB for quite some time. This month she has taken a turn for the worse. She says that Jen is her “white daughter”. Jen has not stopped loving and reaching out to her family in the past 5 years they have known each other. Jen had the privilege of leading one of her daughters, Yulisa, to the Lord years ago and has been able to encourage the entire family in the Lord as they were all heart-broken when they lost their sister to TB just a few years ago. The sad thing about TB is that it is curable and no one needs to die from it. The problem is the treatment is difficult for someone living here. Let me take a minute to explain.
The treatment consists of the patient going to the hospital/clinic every day for 10 months. If one treatment is missed they have to start all over. The problem here (and how well we understand) is that you never know if you are going to have transportation. And then if everything works out and you are able to get there, there is no guarantee the person administering the treatment will show up, and if everyone shows up there is no guarantee the medicine will be there. Since TB is contagious, the people who have it are not truthful and honest about why they are sick. If others know they have it they will be shunned. Here is a little excerpt from the WHO on the TB situation in the DR:
“This high rate of MDR was associated with poor programme performance and lack of political will to fight the disease. TB control has now been implemented according to internationally recommended guidelines for more than 7 years, and a project to manage MDR-TB has recently started. The use of second-line drugs must be fully supervised to prevent the rise of extensively drug-resistant TB. New data on the magnitude of MDR-TB is urgently needed. In addition, a strengthened national network of properly-equipped laboratories with trained personnel and a fully functioning national reference laboratory are necessary to ensure access to quality-assured sputum smear microscopy, culture and drug-susceptibility testing.
Surveillance efforts in the Dominican Republic, although following WHO/PAHO standards, need to be strengthened. While case reporting in DOTS areas suggests a steady increase in the number of cases detected, nationally there is an inconsistent pattern of increases and decreases. The quality of case finding across the country and TB programme/health system issues, such as the quality of the workforce, may be contributing factors explaining disparities.”- World Heath Organization

Four in the Fire

So as we continued through the last 30 days I had to take a trip to the Capitol to find parts for the broken transmission in the Van. Being unsucessful at finding replacement parts, I was successful though at finding a used transmission. We were so excited once the new (used) transmission was installed. Within three days however when Jen left to go to the hospital to pick up her friend Julia to visit with her mom Flor, the van decided to throw the crank through the engine. So once again we had been left without transportation. My friend Nathan had been here helping us with the new uniforms at the school for the children, he had asked to use my motorcycle to drive to the Mountain near Polo (La Lonza) to teach for the church service. On the way up the mountain something happened in the engine and the motor siezed up.
Our electricity had been causing us problems last month and this month it was the turn for our water I guess. We had not had water at our house for 6 days from the storm, so I went to visit the person in charge of sending the water throughout the community. He encouraged me to tie in to a different line in the road. I bought the materials necesary and made the connections to only find out that the pipe we connected to was not any better than the one we had before. The next option was to buy 200+ feet of 1" pipe to tie directly in further up the mountain. As God was faithful to provide we were able to complete that work. When you have spent several days without a shower, washing dishes, and unable to drive anywhere to get water or just to make things a little easier, I must say I was looking inward. My focus was on my problems.As I pressed in and in my daily devotions God was faithful to meet me. He reminded me that Jesus is right there with me in my time of need. I read through the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego. And it is such a sweet place to be when you realize that He is here with us THROUGH the fire.I echoed a similar prayer I am certain Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego had prayed ‘Lord, keep me in the fire continually if that’s what it takes for me to see You more clearly.’

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 NIV

The Dominican Hippie Van/Surf Wagon
This past weekend, CS Dominican Republic held it’s Second National Camp-Out at Macao Beach in Punta Cana. They had over 100 registrants and even more visiting and participating through-out the weekend. The waves were pretty small but this gave us more time to fellowship. The whole camp gathered together Saturday night for a large worship service Seth and I assisted in leading worship several times throughout the weekend, there were tears by a few afterwards being touched by the Holy Spirit. Other events of the weekend included a Ding-Repair workshop by Eduardo Lara, and a Tandem Surf-Contest. (Two people on one board). We were able to bring some of our guys and gals from the Barahouco Surf Outreach and we also picked up a few in the Capitol on our way through. This was a great opportunity for those who do not yet know Christ to be exposed to the gospel as well as experience fellowship and worship. We were thrilled to be invited to participate with Surfistas Cristiana Republica Dominicana. We pray we will be able to take a group to Cabarete for the Surf  Competition in February.

Batey Central School

Brother Nathan making the School Uniforms
Serving Lunch: fresh banana, milk, and bread.

Children at Recess
School has started ! There are over 60 children attending school. We have 59 registered and 55 of those are sponsored through Children of Hope.The sponsorship helps these stateless children who otherwise would not be able to attend school. Watch Video for Children of Hope.We are developing a lunch program that will allow each child who attends the school to have a nutritious meal and to have a daily vitamin. We need to build a kitchen so we can cook a hot meal for the children. It is our desire to employ a local from the community when the kitchen is complete to make the food for the children each day. The school is part of a community development project that focuses on the spiritual needs of the community through a Biblical Based education and a holistic approach to the problems facing the community that are based in loving the people in the community as Jesus has taught us and to help them in a way that does not hurt them by providing things for them that they could provide for themselves. The approach is one that does not destroy the dignity of the person because the help they receive is not a handout but through carefully measured steps allows them to be trained and equipped to determine the needs of their community and to set goals on how to reach desired end results. Some of the ideas are outlined in the book When Helping Hurts by Steve Corbett You can get your copy of When Helping Hurts here.
We are working on the new school uniforms for the children of the school. The Uniform will consist of a blue pant and shirt for the boys and a skirt and shirt for the girls. We hope to get a new pair of shoes for each one of the children this year as well.
This week we will be picking up the new school chairs and tables! They have been on order from Disessa a manufacturing company in the Capitol. We will be sure to update with photos as soon as they are in the school, I visited the Christian School of Azua a school that is in partnership with Iglesia Cristiana de la Communidad one of our partnering churches from the Capitol. I met with Pastor Raul who guided me through the facility and shared with me how things have grown to what they are today. They have over 100 students and 8 full-time teachers as well as after-school programs and provide solid Biblical education as well as a hot lunch for the children. While we were there the school had donated 28 desks in need of minor repair to our school in the Batey. This will be a good winter project for us.
We are working on the rebuild of the well drilling rig so we can drill a well for the school in the Batey please pray for this project to move along quickly.
We also need to divide the classrooms and construct a wall around the school for security. Please pray for Wilkyns as he leads this school under the direction of the Holy Spirit and as we walk together in this ministry that we would be surrendered to the Holy Spirit. Please pray for more teachers!!! We need help here.

Hi my name is Shalom Re'al Ruth Rineholt I am 11 years old. I live in the Dominican Republic with my family who are missionaries. We live in Alfa Barahona. I remember the first trip when we came to visit and then the second trip with our family is when we stayed to live here. Well that second time we came I met this girl, I was playing with my other friend and my sister Charis when we met Ivelis for the first time. She asked me um if I wanted to be her friend and I said YES and from that day on we are like sisters. When we were in the United States I really missed her like when I am here I really miss my friends in the United States. So one day when we were here about three weeks ago I called Ivelis to come over and sit with me. We were talking about stuff. She has really been through a lot. She was only seven when so many bad things happened to her. I told her that God loves her and she already knew that. I told her that Jesus loved her. And I asked her if she knew Jesus, like really, in her heart and she said "no". I asked her if she wanted to and she said "YES".
So we like prayed and stuff. And She asked Him. She asked Him into her heart. We were both so happy. I am really excited for her!
Love -shalom

Sharing Jesus with Prostitutes

So as we found ourselves stuck in the Capitol of the Dominican Republic for over 2 weeks while working on our Visas, we began to grow weary and anxious to be back in our town, Barahona, to get settled in and to get involved with the work we left 12 weeks before.Feeling somewhat helpless because the circumstances were beyond our control we then were able to exhale, and relaz that God has even this time in His hands we were then able to surrender it to Him. We had the privilege to meet and hang out with a godly young man, Albert who helped us with translating and getting us to where we needed to be. Albert invited us to his church one Sunday and told us about an outreach they had on Wednesday nights to the street workers-prostitutes of the Capitol. We were invited to go along and as the three young ladies (Jen being one of them) we (the men) stood guard and protected our ladies as they shared Jesus with the prostitutes. Jen was told there is a man who brings his 16 year old daughter and his wife to the corner and offers them for sale while he waits patiently in his car to collect the money from the evening. Jen noticed the emotions of the young ladies had been seared, and that the girls had the ability to no longer "feel" as you and I have feelings.One young lady (26 yr old) pregnant with her third child worked hard to wrap and mask the fact that she was "with child" so it would not hurt her nightly income. These ladies eyes have been darkened and they believe "there is no other way" to make money to live as they said to us. As Jen shared a story of hope, when Moses had the Red Sea before him and the Enemy behind him and it appeared that there was no other way, God MADE a Way through the situation and defeated the enemy in the process. We then went to the other side of town where there are different types of street workers. We met with Juan or Juanita as some of his clients know him as. We were faced with the reality of our own fears of talking to a transsexual. Please let me be very frank. By no means do we condone or support the lifestyle this person has chosen, but by just talking to him for a few minutes we were faced with the reality that he is a human. Jesus died for him. Jesus loves him. Please pray that God would convict them of there sin and they would seek Repentance and Reconciliation with Jesus.

A word from Shawn

"I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done." -Hudson Taylor

Ears To Hear

... eyes to see.

"I am no longer anxious about anything, as I realize the Lord is able to carry out His will, and His will is mine. It makes no matter where He places me, or how. That is rather for Him to consider than for me; for in the easiest positions He must give me His grace, and in the most difficult, His grace is sufficient." - Hudson Taylor

Ears To Hear

In 2008 I remember walking up the rocky terrain with a backpack full of Bibles in Spanish like it was yesterday. I saw an older gentlemen sitting in a "Walmart-like" plastic chair under a tree. This man was sitting beside a house made out of tree branches wrapped with sheets of tin. This house could not have been more than 12' x 14' in size.  I remember taking delivery on a new shed at my house near Bethany Beach, DE just a few months prior that seemed ginormous in comparison to this house. So I called out to this man to see if he had a few minutes that we may be able to speak with him about Jesus and His love for him. He smiled and said "of course".82 year old blind man in 2009 Barahona, Dominican Republic

After we approached him he made a distinct noise that summoned the rest of his family from the small house and yard. As the other 6-7 members made their way to the meeting place, I noticed each of them were carrying the same type of plastic chair, some that were "sewn" back together with some sort of plastic thread and home-made wire resembling that of stitching you would see on a new baseball.
As his family approached and after offering us a place to sit, they formed a semi-circle with the chairs so we could begin our talk. We shared about God's goodnaess, our sin and need of a Savior, the need of repentance and God's plan for each of our lives. The family gladly received the word and several made a new commitment to follow Christ. I began to give out the Bibles we had brought and as I got to my elder friend, he claimed " I can not read. I can not see. I have been blind since I was a youth." I felt very sad for him. He then said, "I dreamed that one day I would hear God's word... through the air". I was immediately reminded of Romans 10:17 NKJV that says "So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God". This is when God began to confirm in my own heart the need to reach those who could not read, either because of blindness or because of illiteracy and that Radio (through the air) would be a great rescource to reach the masses with the gospel message of Jesus. It was not long after, that  God had brought together the other men who shared the same vision for the same area,  some having the Radio vision even before this time frame to eventually form Ears To Hear Radio Ministries.

Eyes To See

When my doctor (opthalmologist) told me today that I "was the first case of TRACHOMA  that he had seen in the United States in 25 years" I somehow felt as though it were not something to celebrate. "Your vision has degraded from your last record with corrective lenses by 20% in just one year."  He declared, "you have scarring as a 2 on a scale of 1 to 10."  He added, "This disease was endemic in the United States at one time, but with increased quality of living even before antibiotics, the disease has been wiped out here.  However, you have contracted it with the use of your contact lenses and the living conditions in the Dominican Republic where you live.  It is known to effect the poorest of the poor and those who have little or no access to proper sanitation and clean water.  Trachoma causes blindness, over time, if left untreated." he claimed.   "In your case you will be OK if you take your antibiotic."  He began speaking again as the room filled with every other staff member itching to get a look first hand at the freak show, that is Shawn Rineholt.  "This man has a rare eye disease."  Trachoma is the world's leading cause of preventable blindness.  As I, for a moment thought about myself and how much I enjoy reading, watching a movie, looking at my beautiful wife, seeing my kids smile and laugh and how if I had not been diagnosed I would within 8 more years possibly never be able to do any of these things again, I choked back a tear or two, so as to allow everyone ample time to examine my eyes.
God has a way of using physical things in our life to parallel the spiritual. He uses the physical need sometimes to show us the spiritual need. I began to pray for the Radio project as I shared the story of the blind man in Barahona with my captive audience inside the examining room. When I was finished Dr.Pathick said,  "You may now share from experience this story".
Trachoma is a curable physical disease that causes physical blindness. It effects millions of people in developing nations.
Sin is a curable disease. Jesus has paid the price. The Great Physician has not only diagnosed our problem but He has given Himself as THE Cure.
“Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”” Matthew 28:18-20 NIV
At times the task God has called us to has seemed impossible, and we have experienced some difficulty along the way. Hudson Taylor says it best "I have found that there are three stages in every great work of God: first, it is impossible, then it is difficult, then it is done."

Please pray,  as I have taken my antibiotics needed but they no longer manufacture the salve that was prescribed me so I am waiting to see if my Insurance will approve the fee for a local Pharmacy here to make a batch for me.
Please also pray that if it is the Lord's will for me that I may be able to have eye surgery to no longer need contacts to reduce the risk of further infections down the road for me

God Bless you!
