17 January 2016 Update!

We are so thankful that you all pray for us. Your prayer support is a vital part of the work that we are called to. You are a very important part of our 'team' of supporters who are holding the rope.

We continue to live in Oxford, Mississippi during our Stateside Assignment. We have been blessed by our Sending Church Family at First Baptist Oxford. It has been a great experience to serve as Missionaries In Residence with FBC Oxford and to be a part of all the great things God is doing here. We talk often about our Sending Church and how special they are. 

We wanted to share with you some updated prayer requests:
  1. Please pray for Phase Two of the International Mission Board Reset. Earlier this week we were asked by our leadership to pray and seek the Lord about our future. Are we the right people, in the right place, doing the right things? So we are praying through those things and seeking the Lord's leadership. Please join us in praying that the Father's plan would be very clear and that we would be obedient. For more info about the IMB's Reset please click HERE.
  2. Would you pray that the Father would send more workers to southern Mexico?
    • Adults for Long-Term and Mid-Term Positions! We have several positions on our team for adults (singles and/or families) to serve. If you are interested in those positions you can begin that process by clicking HERE.
    • Journeyman Positions for young adults. You can begin that application process by clicking HERE.
    • Young Adults for Mid-Term Positions! We have several positions on our team for young adults to join our team during the Fall of 2016. They include the following jobs (click on the position for more info):
    • High School Students! We are recruiting high school students for a special team that will live in a mountain village for three weeks during the Summer of 2016. For info regarding this team please click HERE.
    • High School Mission Camp! We have a great opportunity for youth groups to come to Oaxaca on July 17 to 24, 2016 to help local churches in Oaxaca. Click HERE for more info.
  3. Please pray for the People Groups of southern Mexico to hear and understand and be able to respond to the Gospel. Please pray for these specific people groups (You can click on the name of each group for more information):
Thank you so much for your prayer support!
