“A picture is worth a thousand words…”
Meet Nathan, one of many local teenagers looking for a Forever Family through adoption.
This charismatic, smart, friendly, and playful young man has a big smile bound to make anyone’s day brighter! Nathan loves to be active and is a hands on learner who would love to participate in activities such as football, boxing, and Tae Kwon Do. He enjoys listening to both rap and country music and he aspires to go into the Military after high school. Nathan is looking forward to being a part of a family who will be there to cheer for him and support him unconditionally. He will thrive with a family who are easy-going, nurturing, positive, and open to allowing continued contact with people important to him.
Please take a moment and pray that Nathan may find his Forever Family.
I prayed for this child, and the Lord has granted me what I asked of Him.”
~ Samuel 1:27
(Please continue to pray for Lily, as she is still looking for her Forever Family. A new church is joining us in praying for Lily; therefore, her sign was moved to that church.)

Missionary Update from Justin & Steffani

2019 was a big year for us, and we wanted to take a moment and say thank you for being a part of it.

In ministry, we helped create 3 new jobs and started an entrepreneurship school! We also made friends with a Muslim couple from Turkey and are continuing to develop that friendship. Stef volunteered her time teaching English to immigrants.

In personal life, we moved back to the states after 2 years in Spain. We visited almost all our supporters the first few months of the year before we moved to Louisville where Justin’s job is located. Justin went down to the Dominican Republic once a month starting in May. We unfortunately had a miscarriage in September followed by a neighbor’s fire in October that displaced us for several weeks. We moved into a house in December. We visited family in IL and TN a couple times and they visited us (have to make up for not seeing the grandson too much the first 8 months of his life!  🙂 )

Through it all, we’ve seen God’s faithfulness in providing through you, His people and our supporters. Thank you for allowing God to use you in our lives whether you invest prayerfully or financially. It’s humbling to think of all the love that has been poured out on us this year through our trials and we can only hope to repay some of that as well as pay it forward.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts,

Justin & Steffani Hemming (and Baby David too!)

Missionary Update from the Sudsberry Family

A pause.

With Ryan’s role as The Lead Director of Global Church Planting, he has been on the road a lot so this week was a wonderful pause for our family to be reunited. We packed our tent and sleeping bags, cast iron skillet & lanterns and took a few days and went out into the woods to camp. Fires, no phones, tents, card games, fishing, & hiking…all of the outdoor things.

As with anything when you look back there are things you didn’t realize you were experiencing at the time. For me, (Ryan) I spent a lot of time praying…not because of anything bad or crazy but because when you unplug from phones (text, WhatsApp, email, calls, social media, voxer, and on and on and on) and you are present in the place you find yourself you see the beauty, mystery, people, and can’t help but see Him…Father…King…Lord.

We have some great memories from this week and really it was only because we were intentional about being fully present.

*When is the last time you paused?

You don’t have to camp or travel to experience it.

Go to a local coffee shop. Observe. Pray for those you see. Sip the coffee and pray for those in that country that made it. Pray they come to know Jesus and His grace…I mean we could start churches there in a few years!!! SERIOUSLY!!!

Put the phone down.
Take a breath.
Recall His Word.
Pray. Thank Him. He is so good.

Thank you for your continued prayers for our marriage, parenting, and those we have the privilege to disciple.

Grace + Peace,
