We have a lot of things going on in October 2019. The first thing we’re going to do is entertain four of our grandchildren for a week. That will be fun! We ask your prayers for some of our ministry opportunities this month.
Tony to Cuba
A couple of months ago, Tony was invited to join two team members from Live Global to visit a group of young missionary church planters in Cuba. As we prayed about it, we also asked God to supply the financial resources needed for the trip. God supplied more than enough. From October 16 to 21, the team will travel to Santiago de Cuba. We’ll be observing and encouraging Cuban servant-leaders. Pray that God would allow us to build relationships with those who are serving Christ in Cuba. Please pray with us about this trip.
Teddy to Nicaragua
Our son Teddy will be going to Nicaragua on a mission trip with some of the young men and leaders of his discipleship group at church. The team will be leading a discipleship conference from October 24 to 28. Teddy will be doing a lot of translating for the conference teachers. Teddy has always been a big help when we hosted short-term teams in Ecuador. He is excited about going on his first missions trip. Pray that Teddy and the discipleship team will be a blessing.
Tony and Joy to Pennsylvania
In August, we began the application process to join Live Global, a ministry of ABWE (Association of Baptists for World Evangelism). We have had conversations and interviews with members of the Live Global and ABWE team. Next, Tony and Joy will attend New Member Orientation at the ABWE headquarters at their beautiful location near Harrisburg, PA. From October 24 to 31, we’ll participate in intensive training in all things related to being ABWE Live Global missionaries. The ABWE leadership will interview us more extensively. Then the leaders will decide on our approval and appointment to serve with Live Global. Please be praying with us about this important week. We hope to have an important announcement on November 1!
