Hendersons-Missionaries to Bolivia
This past month we had the opportunity to participate in youth camp. Each morning during the camp I had the privilege teach about the ministry of the Holy Spirit in spiritual growth. One morning in particular I preached on having a heart toward God’s people. Other teen related topics were taught as well. After the middle of the year our family will be taking our next furlough. Thank you for your support!
DeShon's-Missionaries to Turkey
Merhaba (hello) from Turkey! After a long, grueling, but blessed 48 hour journey from the USA, we are back in Turkey. The goal now is to get our house settled again, the girls settled into the routine of school, and to begin to look for potential places to rent for a new office. People have already expressed interest in coming to English classes and have even offered to spread the word. Please pray that God will bless this new endeavor by helping us to find the right place soon.
Haryney's-Missionaries with Kool Kids Ministries
To all of you who helped to make this trip possible, thank you, thank you and thank you! What a week we had! There were 40 kids from the orphanage and 18 Ukrainian workers who participated in the camp. The big challenge, well, they all speak Ukrainian, and we, not so much! But with the help of interpreters, and a lot of help from the Lord we were still able to make some lasting connections. God is doing a work in Ukraine, and thanks to your support and prayers, you have a part in what He is doing. To God be the Glory!
Weaver's-Missionaries to Belize
Many of you know the Maya people believed the end of the world would be 12/21/12. It is so sad to see these people become so excited and spend so much effort on false hopes. One of the teenagers came to the compound to talk with me about salvation. Praise God she had the courage to follow through and accept Christ as her Savior. Our reading and writing classes are going well. Our students are reading simple Bible verses. It is so encouraging to us to see this happen. The feeding center is still providing hot meals for children and families are attending services.
Hart's-Missionaries to Mozambique
Over the last three months, we have visited 39 churches, traveled 15,000 miles, and been very encouraged by Fellowship with our supporting churches. It has been for us a very refreshing and encouraging time, even though the travel sometimes has been hard.. We have a little less than four months before we head back to Mozambique and we desire to be a blessing in the rest of our appointments. Work on the Bible Institute building has progressed in our absence and according to reports I have received we will be painting when we arrived back on the field.
Todd's-Missionaries to Argentina
If you have a good memory you might remember a few years ago me talking about a brother and sister who would come around when I was working on our building. They had no idea what a church was and no concept of who God was. Back then Sandy had the opportunity to explain to them about God. Well time has passed since then, four years to be exact. The kids have grown and moved to a different neighborhood. But at our last children’s activity they were there. I gave a lesson using the wordless book and both Javier and Brisa made professions of faith. Praise the Lord!
Moore's-Missionaries to Singapore
Thank you so much for continuing to pray for Sharon. She had cataract surgery on her left eye the first week in December. As with the operation on her right eye, this one was highly successful. She will still have to wear glasses because of an astigmatism, but she can see so much more clearly now.
Brown's-Missionaries with Manna Worldwide
We are excited to begin a new phase of ministry. Manna Worldwide had given us an opportunity to expand our ministry. Our area of focus will continue to be Austria but will also include the surrounding European region. Europe continues to be in great need of churches which proclaim the Gospel and we will continue our efforts to accomplish this mission. Our initial ministry will be to increase our ministry expense funding. We have been underfunded for several year and we must reestablish our financial stability.
