Prayer Letter – March 2020

This past month has been an adventure for us. We have made progress on our support and have now, by God’s blessing, reached 34%! Just the other day, we met the rest of the Poland 10:10 team. They are all wonderful people who are truly dedicated to serving the people of Poland in each of their unique capacities. You can learn more about them on their pages below. 

As our team members shared some of the difficulties their families and ministries are going through, we were moved to respond by taking some of the communication tasks off their plate, and we are eager for the opportunity to do that once we’re on the field. We are burdened for the missionaries in Europe and the Mediterranean who, even this week, have asked if we can help them create a much needed video. God has uniquely positioned us to serve the ministries throughout the extended European region by communicating their stories and portraying God’s work.

Also this month, we have been able to celebrate with our home church as it’s growing in numbers and preparing to expand its reach. We have been blessed to have been a part of this church for the past five years, and the encouragement, support, and guidance the people of our church have given us even to this point is astounding. It is through the community that has formed around us that God has been readying us for the field. 

We are also celebrating because of you, praying for us, supporting us, and encouraging us so that we can confidently take steps toward life and ministry in Europe.

Please continue to pray for us as we are in training and and developing long term partnerships.

Prayer Requests

For connection with more churches and people who are passionate about the least reached people groups of Europe and the Middle East and media ministry

That God would strengthen the Poland 10:10 Initiative – that He raise up local leaders in Poland and call more missionaries and churches to partner with these local pastors

For God’s protection over us and the people close to us who are supporting us in this process. May He guard our families, strengthen our faith, and give us peace in times of stress.

From Psalm 67: May God be gracious to us and bless us and make his face to shine upon us, that His way may be known on earth, His saving power among all nations. Let the peoples praise Him. Let all the peoples praise Him!

In response to recent events: We pray that our brothers and sisters in Christ here and around the world continue to be the representatives of light and hope for the people around them. We pray that hearts of service do not give way to panic. We pray for the health and safety of our missionaries who are navigating these issues.  

Prayer Letter – February 2020

Last summer, we had the opportunity to go to Germany for the first conference for Converge global missionaries in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. We were there to capture the event and get to know the many amazing people we will be working with. This conference was an opportunity for the missionaries to refocus on Converge’s vision, to brush up on some useful leadership and ministry skills, to worship God together, and to simply rest.

During a time of corporate worship, we sang a popular worship song that goes,
And all the earth will shout Your praise
Our hearts will cry, these bones will sing
Great are You, Lord

Those lines carried even more weight when we were singing them in a room full of people who have sacrificed so much to share the love of God with the least-reached peoples. Moments like that stir in us a desire to go and take part in those ministries. We pray that more people will cry out with those missionaries for those unreached groups to shout His praise. 

While we were there, we were blessed to be able to hear stories of the ways God is using these missionaries to touch lives from Senegal to Estonia, and from the Middle East to Sweden. Read one of their stories here.

Prayer Requests

For connecting with the right people and churches who will encourage us and support us as we push forward in this season of preparing for the mission field and life in Poland.

For people throughout Europe and the Middle East to look around and be utterly discontent with life the way it is. That this leads them to begin to seek and hope for something more.

From Romans 15, May the God of endurance and encouragement grant us to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together we may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

From Ephesians 6, that words may be given to us in opening our mouths boldly to proclaim the mystery of the gospel, for which we are ambassadors.

Prayer Letter – January 2020

Two years ago, we started a journey toward the mission field. As we’ve drawn closer to launching, God continues to impress on us a desire to serve missionaries and communicate all He is doing among least reached people groups.

Even though this preparation season has been longer than we expected and desired, we have been gifted with more time to grow and learn and to enjoy life with our family and friends in the United States. We’re excited to now be in this time of communicating our vision and bringing people onto our support team.

Prayer Requests

For balancing our schedules. We continue to invest in our church, relationships and work here, and desire to do so well and with love, while much of our time is being dedicated to our future ministry and preparation for the field. 

For God to move in the hearts of the over 720 million people in Europe who do not have a relationship with Him, their  Loving Father and Creator.

Please pray for us from Colossians 1

  • to be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding
  • to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him
  • to bear fruit in every good work and increase in the knowledge of God
  • to be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy
  • to, in everything, give thanks to the Father
