Summer Sojournings – The beginning of summer brings and end to ourr busy Spring season with the DTS and SBFM schools. We were so blessed to have students from Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, New Zealand and the Netherlands (in addition to students from various places in the US.) Please pray for Lord’s hand to be upon the 2 schools as they go on outreach over the summer months. Also, please pray for a restful & refreshing summer for our family as we spend time in MN in July and early August.
Tom School Leading – For the first time in 6 years, Tom will be once again leading the School of Biblical Foundations & Missions. Please pray for grace as he juggles this and his responsibilities as base director.
Exciting New Outreach Initiative – After having sent a group of 4 staff to pioneer an SBFM in a large communist Asian nation last year, we are recently finished running our 2nd full 12 week school there. I can’t share more details on the location for security reasons. This joint effort with the University of the Nations in Kona is in response to the growing need for discipleship and training for the new leaders in the region. Please pray for the students who completed the training that they would take the tools they learned and be more effective in their ministries.
Outreach Locations – Our long term team is currently ministering in a large country in Asia. Please pray for protection and for effectiveness in their ministries as they pioneer a new work there.
Continuing Grace – It has been a busier year than usual. Please pray for wisdom and continued fruitfulness as we move forward in our ministry.
Finances - With rising costs and a sluggish economy, we have noticed a drag in our finances. Some on our support team have been feeling the pressure also. Please pray for $400 increased monthly support to meet our financial needs.
