In June the Stateside team welcomed a crew of nine missionaries who all served in Asia for at least nine months and have chosen to commit to LONG TERM work in Asia. We get to keep them in the area for six months and walk with them to prepare them more! Our friend Summer is leading the charge and Knight is helping out. Please pray for them: that God would help them grow strong teams of prayer warriors and financial supporters. That they would be strengthened and encouraged (and even challenged toward growth!) in the call that God has put on their lives.
June also has been our kick-off month for leading the Transit team. We have a newly engaged couple, a long-term worker who just returned from the field for a six-month furlough, and a family of four preparing to get to Asia as soon as they are able! Knight and I meet with this crew twice a week to train, encourage, and support them. Please pray for them to build their support teams and to lay hold of all God has for them in this season! Transition can be tricky!
As a Stateside team we’re doing a two-hour time of worship and prayer for the Asian nation we work in. It is a well-organized time to gather and pray hard and be encouraged at what God is doing in Asia. Recently we prayed over the house churches and the members by name together. We really believe that when we PRAY GOD MOVES!
Summer time holds extra weekend fun with family, too! We are thankful for the family God has placed us in. My mom came up from PA to spend the weekend with us, and we were so happy for our daughter to have a little more Grandma time!! And before long, we get to give her some time with a new little brother or sister. 🙂 We’re expecting the newest member of our family in January!
You guys are amazing!! We thank God for YOU and are praying His presence and joy would be with you. Filling your hearts individually and flooding your homes. He is a faithful God.
