Back on the Home Ministry Trail

Dear Champions,

On the road again! That seems to be a good theme, fitting of missionary life. We are glad to be adjusting back to our schedules here in the USA after a wonderful month of ministry to El Salvador, and Honduras and some special time of training one of our counseling agencies in Michigan. We are so happy to be a part of this calling to serve our missionaries through pastoral care and counseling. We are finding that the needs in ministry to our missionaries is expanding and we are so happy to be available to serve them. We thank you so much for your prayers and standing with us in this vital work.

During the next several weeks we are on HMA - which stands for Home Ministry Assignment. This is an opportuity we have to travel around to supporting churches, and supporting partners to express our appreciate for their part in our ministry. Truly it could not be possible for us to do this ministry without the faithful support and prayers of our champions - people like you!

We thank God for each on of you and appreciate all you do in following our ministry and partnering with us. We call you "Champions" for a reason - you are all Champions in our book and your investment in ministry makes all we do possible.

During the month of August we have visited churches in Jackson, Somerset and Pittsford Michigan giving an update to our champions at Northeast Missionary Church, Somerset Congregational Church and Liberty Bible Church. We are grateful for these visits and the wonderful opportunity we have to update folks on our ministry.

We have adopted the slogan "Stationed Locally - Serving Globally - as God has placed us in Marion, IN to work out of World Gospel Mission Headquarters as the Directors of Member Health/Care and serving as Pastors to the Missionaries. In our time there we have visited Bolivia, Paraguay, Peru, El Salvador, Honduras, Tex-Mex Border and Native American Fields in Arizona. God is doing great things and the Gospel is transforming lives !

Our ministry will take us to Ohio, Michigan, Kansas, Indiana and back to Michigan over the months of September and October.

If you happen to be in the area and can make it to a service we would love to see you and touch base with you. Thank you for remembering us in prayers for travel and ministry in these coming days.
