Billy and Cecilia Stone have been living on the island of St. Croix since November 2010. Billy has had 28+ years of construction/maintenance experience, been involved in disaster relief ministry, worked with volunteers, been actively involved with missions and traveled extensively. Cecilia, a Registered Nurse, has a strong background in Public Health and School Nursing, as well as teaching the Bible to children. Together they started and taught Children’s Church for 12 years, developed a children’s program called the FROG Club (Fully Rely on God), worked in VBS several years, served as AWANA Sparks directors for one year, served as coordinators for Operation Christmas Child, and traveled with their puppet ministry, the Patchwork Pals. They have two married sons and six grandchildren.
Billy has connected with several pastors and missions on the island and has done construction/maintenance projects on several churches, missions and a Christian school. God has also placed in him a desire and opportunities to teach His Word, from the pulpit as well as in Bible Studies. Cecilia works part time as a School Nurse at Free Will Baptist Christian School, has developed a School Health Program and teaches children the Bible through stories and puppetry. As other needs arise, Billy and Cecilia seek the Lord’s guidance in helping to meet those needs.
We see those who partner with us prayerfully and financially as an integral part of the team. Some may not be able to go to the mission field personally, but their giving allows us to go. We are one body, but many parts, all serving the same Lord and Savior. Our desire is to see more souls brought into the Kingdom of Heaven and lives changed as they seek a closer personal relationship with the Lord. The reward for such an accomplishment is shared by all. We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our supporters. If you would like to partner with us or would like more information, feel free to contact us.
