    On Sunday, August 20, Stephanie Shanks shared the following testimony with the church about her time in Bolivia. We hope that her words continue to stir your heart toward missions and inspire you this week.I know being on the “sending” side can be harder in its own ways, to sit through testimonies like this when you wanted to BE there, but this Summer I realized just how much we leaned on you for support before and during the trip.

They had ten days to raise $2,500 to pay Namibian import taxes on their vehicles. For those who don’t know, the Krugers recently transitioned from South Africa, where Josh was coordinating short term mission trips for Operation Mobilization (OM), to Namibia, where Josh & Lieze will lead the OM field office and provide oversight for every OM missionary in the country.

We love you guys and it's an honor to be aware of your needs and do everything we can to meet them." This week, I got an unexpected call on my cell. It was Josh.

One of the missionary families we began supporting financially in 2015 hails from the Sovereign Grace chu...

  • Why I’m Taking the Perspectives Class

    One of the prayers I’ve been praying for myself and for our church is a growing awareness of and love for the people of the world, especially for hundreds of unreached people groups.  I’m convinced that desire was birthed by the Holy Spirit as He enlarges our hearts for what is most important to Him. That’s why Liz & I decided to register for a 15 week class called Perspectives.  For the past few years I’ve heard about its impact on the lives of people who attend. Each week a diffe...
