9 December 2015 Update!

Merry Christmas from Oxford! 

We are so thankful to all of you who pray faithfully for our family and the work in southern Mexico. Prayer is the work of missions and many of you are so faithful to lift up the needs of our people groups and our family. Thank you!

These have been great times for our family as we have almost reached the halfway point of our Stateside Assignment. We are enjoying our time in Oxford and the USA! Haylee is finishing up her first semester at Mississippi College and has had a good semester. Jackson is finishing up the first half of his junior year at Oxford High School and is ready for some down time! Liesa is busy keeping up with our kids and working with kids at a local school who are from other cultures/countries as well as helping out with things at our sending church, First Baptist Oxford. Jeff has been busy helping out at First Baptist Oxford as well as attending to some International Mission Board responsibilities. We are blessed to have so many great people with whom to work!

You can pray for us as we will be traveling quite a bit over the next few weeks. Here's our schedule and if you live nearby please let us know so we can connect!

  • December 13: Koinos Fellowship, Troy OH Morning Worship Service.
  • January 1: Ole Miss vs Oklahoma State in the 2016 Sugar Bowl.

We are thankful for your prayer support for all of these events. Please also pray for the following Unreached People Groups of Mexico. Pray that:
  • they will have access to the Gospel
  • they will be able to understand the Gospel in their heart language
  • they will respond to the Gospel.
Unreached People Groups of Mexico (click the link for more info!):
Surely with all of the resources in the USA church we can find a way to get the Gospel to these last remaining unengaged unreached people groups VERY SOON! Will you pray?

These are also days when we are asking you to support the work of The International Mission Board through giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering. When you give to the Lottie Moon Offering people hear about Jesus. Here is a video that will help you understand some of the work going on in southern Mexico:

Thank you so much for your prayer support and your financial support.

Merry Christmas!
Jeff, Liesa, Haylee and Jackson
