  • Booher, Rudi, Carla and Family
    ~ Separated to the work in Ecuador, South America ~ Hello Friends and Family, We have some pretty exciting news in this update… Last week on the 4th our second grandchild, a BOY was born! His name is Philip Courage and his birth was a lot easier on his mama, which was a big answer to prayer! We, of course, think he is the cutest and smartest boy ever, but you know grandparents are pretty biased! I (Carla) wasn’t able to be at his birth, as we were still up in the States, but flew down with Paula on the… Read more: Booher, Rudi, Carla and Family
  • Sullivan, Henry, Grace and Family
    ~ Separated to the work in Columbia; South America ~ Dear family in Christ, Grace and peace be multiplied unto you through the knowledge of God, and of Jesus our Lord. 2 Pe 1:2 After spending March, April and the first part of May in Medellín we are back in Nuquí. There were many good things to be the thankful for during our time in the city but we are very glad to be back on the coast. The best was the arrival of our daughter, Julia Marie, on the 28th of March. Everything went very well and the care… Read more: Sullivan, Henry, Grace and Family
  • Barnard, Jesse and Tess
    ~ Serving in Ecuador; South America ~ Hello dear church of Christ. Well, we have been in the States for four months now. We came back to see specialists at Doernbechers hospital for our sweet baby Kirsten. We are encouraged by the goodness of God through the ups and downs. After more tests and visits with specialists we are now miraculously in the clear to head back to the mission field to continue the work together with Myles and Mary Booher. Thank you all for your care and prayers! We have really felt carried by the Lord through this time. We… Read more: Barnard, Jesse and Tess
  • Skiles, Jerry and Sharon
    ~ Itinerant ministry worldwide; Discipleship; Tribal work in Ivory Coast, Ghana, and Burkina Faso ~ Jerry Skiles, Ivory Coast. I am writing this from my desk in Oregon, as I am also working on a lesson from John chapter 9. In Jn. 9:2, Jesus’s disciples asked him, “Who did sin, this man, or his parents, that he was born blind?” For us born and raised and indoctrinated in western thought, this might be a strange question. In the Loron or Loma tribe this is a logical question. They believe everything has a cause due a spiritual transgression. In our early… Read more: Skiles, Jerry and Sharon
  • Booher, Myles and Mary
    ~ Serving in Ecuador; South America ~ Myles and Mary Booher, Ecuador, South America. One of the goals of this trip has been to connect more with and get on the same page as the Camas Valley Church. This church is the Barnards’ new sending church, and has a lot of experience and wisdom in the area of missions, as well as a real vision for God’s work in Ecuador to be carried out. We have not changed sending churches, but have gleaned a lot of wisdom from the elders there. This also has been a beautiful opportunity for the… Read more: Booher, Myles and Mary

After that I’ll… Read more: Enns, Ed and Patty

  • Ball, Mike, Faith and Family
    ~ Serving in Loreto, Zacatecas ~ BALL BEARINGS Here is a report on what has been going on in Loreto during our time here in Wyoming. I will begin by telling you about a brother by the name of Juan Jose from the neighboring town of Crisostomos. He was one of the elders in Loreto when we first named elders over 15 years ago. Because of problems in his family he resigned as an elder and because of these same problems eventually left the church (after a few years). Last fall he and his wife returned to the congregation along… Read more: Ball, Mike, Faith and Family
  • McDaniel, Richard and Julie
    ~ Teaching and preaching in the USA and abroad; Conference speaker; Literature; Instructor and director of the SFMI Training Program ~ Greetings to you in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, Our ministry here in Bend doesn’t seem to change too much. We are faithful to serve in the church with eldership responsibilities and to take part in the teaching ministry. We also continue to do street evangelism in downtown Bend almost every weekend. It is a time of much sowing without seeing much fruit of the harvest. We pray that others will be reaping a harvest from the… Read more: McDaniel, Richard and Julie
