Additional Information

Randy Bates

Randy joined Quiet Hour Ministries in November 2001. Before becoming president and CEO he served in a variety of roles, including five years as CFO. His commitment to honesty, integrity and accountability goes further than Quiet Hour Ministries. “We serve because we love the Lord with all our heart,” he says. “It is to Him we make our highest commitment. We are intentionally seeking to be ready to go wherever God leads.” He and his wife Lynette live in Loma Linda and are willing and able to share pictures of their three grandchildren at a moment’s notice.

Speaker

Each speaker will:

  • present the My Friend Jesus messages at their assigned meeting site on the trip.
  • show one segment of the Jesus Film at the beginning of each night as an introduction to Jesus.
  • Be responsible for bringing the presentation kit provided by QHM.

Children’s Program Leader and Helpers

The Friendship Hour leader is in charge of coordinating and leading the children's program with the help of supporting team members. QHM provides a suitcase with a Bible story felt set, Friendship Hour handbook, and a craft package for each of the 10 meetings.

The children's ministry assistant provides support and help to the leader.

  • Song service, games, and additional activities are at the leader’s discretion. The evangelistic meetings may run longer than the children's program, so prepare to keep the kids actively engaged in learning about Jesus and have age-appropriate games or activities in mind. Uncle Arthur-type stories are sure to please young inquisitive minds.

Clinic Team Members

The clinic team members help as assigned at the health clinic and present health talks before each evening meeting. At times, they are also asked to bring a piece of luggage from QHM containing: glucose meters, stethoscopes, eye testers, eye charts, and reading glasses.

Construction Project Team Members

The construction team members put in physical labor to help complete building projects. Talk with our staff about bringing construction basics: hammer, screwdriver, pliers, wrench, tape measure, work gloves, work shoes, or additional supplies. Areas may be rugged, so closed-toe athletic shoes will work best to protect against rocks and uneven footing.

Take time as a group to relax, recharge, and experience the local culture.

Check back here two months prior to the trip for more information about the team outing.

Your trip donation includes vegetarian meals and double-occupancy lodging.
