Restoration Ministries International - Refuel history
Marqueta Martin is the wife of Pastor Donovan Martin. They have been married
for the past seven years. Lisa, at the age of nineteen was actively involved
in Women’s Aglow International and a year later was given the position
of Teens Aglow President which she held for five years becoming involved
with the youth throughout the island of Barbados.
Together Lisa and Donovan have coordinated many Mission Outreach programs
throughout the region and the USA where they were privileged to see many
lives transformed through the power of God’s Holy Spirit.
They are the Regional Directors of Caribbean Lifetime Missions, which
is an International Interdenominational organization with its headquarters
in Atlanta Georgia. Because of this they travel extensively and believe
strongly that they have been given the mandate to go into the entire world.
While in Atlanta Lisa asked God for direction in what theme we should
use for our Youth Retreat. "I glimpsed at a flier right before me
with the words 'Refuel' and that just confirmed what my Spirit was feeling."
Originally this project was a Youth Aflame Retreat but the direction the
Lord was leading was something bigger than just us in Barbados. The growing
need to see a unity between youth in the Caribbean and also to see God
touch lives and bring about change that would stir the youth to step into
the purpose of God and affect their surroundings, such as environs, school,
and workplace. Leaving the mark and aroma of God in each life.
The Lord opened up my heart to work along with a young woman Miss Dyan
Davis from Trinidad and Tobago who I had already had talks with in terms
of locating a venue for our Retreat. Her location made it so appropriate
to connect and she would be very resourceful in helping us coordinate
this camp. I also found that we shared the same vision with regards to
the youth so it was easy for us to begin the process of networking, beginning
first with us. She willing agreed and jumped on board.
We continue to give God all the praise for the way He
is pulling His body together to fulfill His vision.
