March brought good opportunities to challenge existing ministries in their pursuit of missions and making disciples. We presented to church groups and also met with pastors individually. We were encouraged as we met with the director of Maine Ministry Outreach Center, Mark Adolfson, concerning a Young Adult and Youth Mission's Conference to be held May 17-19th called MissionsLeap. The purpose of the conference is to challenge and motivate Maine youth and young adults to become actively involved in missions work. Their goal is to introduce as many youth as possible to missions and mission opportunities. They are trusting local churches, church mission teams and missionaries to help accomplish this goal. We will be in Ecuador at the time of the conference but have been able to help in the planning. Contact MaineMinistry.org for more details.
As we look back over the past year of home ministry we can see God's faithfulness meeting a great variety of needs in our family and ministry. New prayer and financial supporters are joining Crossworld's ministry to Ecuador through us. God has worked out the details of some personal challenges so that we may return to Ecuador with peace of mind knowing He will continue to be faithful.
Looking ahead please pray for the following prayer requests:
1. Traveling April 7 to Enfield Baptist Church.
2. Strength for saying good-byes to family and friends.
3. Safety traveling to Ecuador April 15th.
4. Obtaining new visas on our arrival to Ecuador.
5. Finding housing in Borja.
6. Getting reconnected with friends.
Thank you for your partnership with us in ministry!
