The month of April is here and we are enjoying the birth of new life that springtime brings. So grateful to God for His blessings. We have enjoyed connecting with many of our supporters and friends of our ministry over this past month. Here are just a few of those connections!
We were able to worship one Sunday at our church in Marion at Lakeview Wesleyan. It is always good to connect with such a mission minded church. We appreciate Lakeview and their support for us. We had a cup of hot peach tea with a couple of our friends that serve on our missions committee back at our home church in Jackson, MI. Trinity Wesleyan Church blesses us regularly with financial support, cards in the mail, and most of all prayers. We were able to speak at Christian Fellowship Center in Jackson, MI. What a mighty group of Christ's servants, who love us, pray for us and support us so much! During the Easter Season we gave an update and thanks to the church Ned grew up in, Rockbridge United Methodist Church in Ohio. We spoke at Village Hope Church in Jackson, MI, as well as their newest church plant in Parma, MI. We love the folks at Village Hope, they bless us so much with their financial support and prayers. We enjoyed lunch with some of our great champions in Spring Arbor, MI while we visited. We enjoyed a great meal at a missions fund raising dinner at Somerset Congregational Church in Somerset, MI. We spent some time with a couple that supports us from Horton, MI and enjoyed traveling with them for a few days. We realize how blessed we are to have all of you in our lives and we thank you! In the midst of all of this, we have continued to be in contact with many of our missionaries, walking with them through various issues and situations.
Our work is progressing well and we are ramping up for a very busy summer of ministry at the home office in Marion. We have many meetings, seminars, and trainings to, attend, participate in, and facilitate. Summer at WGM is one of the busiest times of the year with so many missionaries coming and going. What a privilege it is to serve our missionaries and we are thankful to you, because you help to make it all possible.
Many of you have followed Jordan and supported him as he prepares to go to Spain with the Business class from Indiana Wesleyan University. We thank you for your prayers for their team as they leave May 4 for three weeks. Pray that God will reveal Himself to each of the students in a real and personal way. Thank you for your support.
May God Bless you each one and we just want you to know we are grateful for His blessings and you are one of those to us. Please let us know if we can bless you in some way, we'd love to hear from you.
Love in Christ,
Ned and Marlene McGrady
