|WGM IMPACT 2017 at Indiana Wesleyan University|
We had the privilege of joining about 100 of our WGM leaders for a wonderful time of spiritual renewal and stimulating converstation during two annointed weeks of ministry and learning during the month of June. We used the format of seasoned leaders at WGM (Pauls) interacting and discussing missional topics and outreach for growth and development of WGM with emerging leaders (Timothys).
God was faithful to meet with us in a dynamic and soul inspiring way. Times of prayer, worship, and discussion lead us to realize that God has a great plan in place for WGM to double the impact of mission work around the world over the next five years. As an organization we affirmed our need for passionate expressions of Prayer, Holiness, Stewardship, and Transformation to improve our focus on bringing the love of God to people around the world. We made a resolve to continue to work hard to promote spiritual and emotional health and well being for each of our missionaries and our missionary teams, encouraging WGM leaders to work together in continued greater unity and oneness of mind to see the lost brought to Christ. We were excited to consider how God may be leading us to embrace new paradigms of outreach and strategic planning to reach the world. We sensed the leadership of the Holy Spirit and the annointing power of God to more completely fulfill God's best intentions for WGM.
It is so exciting to see how God is at work and we are convinced that He is still calling people into missionary service. Maybe God is calling you? If so check out www.wgm.org/jobs for more information on how to serve or contact us and we would be happy to talk with you more.
Summertime is always a time of lots of activity around the WGM Headquarters in Marion. The month of July is packed with a Renewal Debriefing for missionaries coming home, a training for missionaries entering Home Ministry, and a final time of training to launch nine new missionaries headed out to serve around the world. We are preparing for missionaries to go to Cambodia, Kenya, Peru and Argentina. We will be involved in all of these training times during July.
Looking ahead we have some time with family planned during the 4th of July. These are pictures with Ned's mom and brothers as well as our kids during the springtime this year. We look forward to being together over

the holiday before entering into a month of training.
August includes some educational events and visiting some missionaries stateside as well as a trip to Bolivia scheduled for August 22 - 29.
Also looking ahead, we are planning a visit this fall to our missionaries serving in Japan and China, a part of the world that God has a heart for. As always we are interested in your prayers and thank you for your support to our mission work. The faithful giving of partners like you make our work with missionaries possible. Thank you for helping make a difference through your involvement.
