Dear Family and Friends,
Barbara and I have felt God’s leading to resume our overseas missions ministry this summer, after 3 years of health challenges. Your prayer support has been invaluable! Thank you so much! My health continues to be good except for some nagging backaches due to 5 spinal compression fractures in 2014.
As I have communicated before, we will help Cip in Moldova beginning August 21 and travel to Italy on August 29. Ilya has asked us to organize an English Family Camp in the summer of 2017. This trip will help set up that event by meeting with 6 Slavic church planters from all over Italy. It is very exciting to help motivate and facilitate 6 churches in evangelism! Lord willing, we shall return Sept. 5.
Our budget for this summer’s trip in $4,500. We have gratefully received $2,050. If you would like to contribute to this trip, please send a check to the address below and put on the Memo line: August Missions Trip. Thank you very much!
Blessed to be a blessing,
Jim and Barbara
