DTS students and staff YWAM, Richmond
It is a joy to greet you in the Name that is above all names, Jesus Christ. We are so thankful that John’s heart has and is responding well to ongoing treatment and medication, as we remain”cleared for take-off” in our ministry to pastors and servants in Majority World nations.
We recently completed two weeks teaching forYouth With a Mission in Richmond, VA and here in Kansas City. As well as teaching, we are privileged to meet with individual students and couples in leadership in these settings to listen, answer theological and personal discipleship questions and pray through issues. What a blessing!
John leaves for Nepal later this month to join GTN colleagues training pastors in two different locations. The church of Jesus in Nepal is growing rapidly, so much so that it is undergoing increased opposition form the government, most recently in anti-conversion laws. Please pray that we will effectively train current and future leaders in that amazing land.
Tessa will not accompany John on this trip as she will be in California with Katherine and Jake for the birth of their second child (our 15th grandchild!) due November 7 but expected early.
We are beginning to put together 2019 trips. Our aim is to make fewer, but longer, trips as we combine locations, to make jet-lag a bit easier (good for our bodies) and to limit long-haul air travel (good for our finances).
As we look to 2019, we are seeing plans for India (in partnership with Global Orphan Project) in February, Rwanda (GTN), Germany (YWAM DBS ) and Poland (pastors and wives retreat) in May with probable trips to Peru in April and Haiti later in the year.
We also have a huge trip coming together for the autumn to the South Pacific to teach three YWAM Pacific Bible schools in Samoa, Solomon Islands, and Papua NG. There will be the preparation of much new material for these YWAM schools in particular. (Global Training Network fully endorses our partnering with YWAM, Global Orphan Project and other mission-minded ministries).
Please pray above all that we will have hearts for Jesus and His Gospel for these opportunities!
‘As much as we can, as well as we can, for as long as we can’,
Your servants for Jesus’ sake,
John and Tessa
As much as we can, as well as we can, for as long as we can.
