DAYNE STARK

Missionary Intern to

Betel International

in the United Kingdom

I have been in Birmingham, UK for nine months now working with Betel International as an intern.  Betel's mission: to bring long-term freedom and restoration to lives broken by drug and alcohol abuse, by building values, skills, and character through living, working, and worshiping together in a caring, Christian community.  Please PRAY for me as I go, I cannot do this alone!  Thanks for your support!

If you would like to partner with me financially, you can make donations to my Australian WestPac account:

Here is my most recent update (February 2024):

  • For the whole month of December (and a few weeks before) Betel UK was carolling. In addition to some of the other projects we do, such as gardening, house clearances, selling furniture, running a cafe, etc., we were also going out to different city centres to carol and raise funds.  Truly, it was an experience.  It was often quite cold. I learned a bit about winter layering, but I mostly learned that:  Standing still = cold...Dancing/swaying with exuberance = warm!  3 days a week, I was the most smiley and energetic dancing elf you have ever met. Oh, how the Lord has changed me 

  • Christmas rolled around, and again, it was truly an experience. I’ve learned something about celebrating. For most my life, I’ve felt ashamed to simply celebrate, because I don’t feel like I’ve earned it. I often felt like I didn’t deserve to simply celebrate, especially as there are so many in the world who cannot. There are millions who live in eminent danger because of poverty, discrimination, or persecution. There are too many that do not have birthday cakes, Christmas presents, or just a safe place to be loved. What right do I have to enjoy the blessings given to me? I wonder what King Solomon would say. “Eat, drink, and be merry, for tomorrow we die”. What about, “Eat, drink, and be merry, for your brother is dying.”? I’m clearly still struggling to reconcile this. Thrice (Christmas, New Years & my Birthday) I was surrounded by people who shamelessly celebrated and indulged, in the best way possible. Keep in mind, half the women in the house have experienced utter squalor. Most of them have been on death’s door at some point in their lives. All of them are utterly grateful for the life and sobriety they now know. And they celebrate! They throw the best parties, and they celebrate sober.

  • One women had not experienced a Christmas in 13 years. This Christmas, she helped decorate the tree, gave the most presents, and sang the loudest while carolling. One woman had been barred from talking to her parents again. This Christmas, she talked to them on the phone and even received presents from them. One woman lost contact with her children for 2 years. She talked with all of them this Christmas.

  • This January, an intern (myself) who hasn’t lived through the curse of homelessness or substance addiction was celebrated by people who have been far less privileged. She was given loads of presents and a card with everyone’s sincere birthday wishes. A dance party was thrown in the living room, and an array of ice cream was served!

  • Just today, we celebrated a woman’s one-year anniversary at Betel. She was working in the cafe kitchen today. While she was having her lunch break, a whole cake and candle was prepared. All the cafe staff came out as the cake was presented, and we sang her happy birthday.

  • Like I said, I’m still trying to reconcile my privilege, but I’ve also learned something about just accepting the blessings given to me. I’ve learned there is great contentment to be found in simply celebrating.
