The time has flown by and we are already into the 2nd month of classes at the CENTER FOR PIONEER CHURCH PLANTING. This has been an exciting place for Jan and me as we have been privileged to meet and fellowship with some of the most passionate and dedicated missionaries we have ever known.
Although they are students (We call them interns) enrolled in the CPCP training, I do not use the term missionaries loosely when I refer to them, for they are already immersed in missionary activity. We have already divided them into church planting teams and sent them into some of the most dangerous areas of Mexico to begin, and in some cases continue the process of earning the right to be heard in their places of ministry.
They earn the right to be heard by serving the community, building relationships and showing genuine love for the people as well as seeking opportunities to proclaim the gospel of Christ. I am so impressed with the boldness, passion, self-forgetfulness and joy with which they eagerly embrace the mission.
It is such an honor to be able to serve them by helping them prepare to go to unreached people groups in places where preaching Jesus could easily cost them their earthly lives. They each are aware of this possibility, but to them, Jesus is worth it!
While I have been busy identifying places for our teams to minister and helping them plan their trips and strategy as well as making sure every individual and every vehicle is properly documented and equipped, Jan has been helping Bob and Mary Warman along with Donna Fleming in the TO EVERY TRIBE finance office. With the ministry growing so rapidly, keeping track of each missionary’s, each intern’s and each staff member’s individual support is a monumental task.
We want to thank you for your prayers and your financial support. We are acutely aware that without your help, we could not be involved in this great work. Please keep us lifted up before the sovereign King of glory , asking that He would use us and supply for us in a way that will bring maximum glory to Him!
All on the altar
