Missionary Update from Justin & Steffani

Finally, some new family pics!!!
 
Justin continues to work in the office in Louisville 3 weeks a month and travels to the Dominican Republic 1 week a month. Steffani continues to make new connections in the Louisville area and welcome other moms into groups to help them get involved with some ministries that help people feel they’re not so alone on the home front.

Lately I (Justin) have been impressed with my wife’s hospitality to invite others to get involved in different women’s groups to take away the loneliness that so often effects moms and dads alike. She’s been hospitable as long as I’ve known her but now she initiates friendships which is inspiring to watch.Speaking of friendships, we are sorry but excited to see our friends Yunus and Tugba move to Cincinnati to take a math teaching job in an elementary job for Yunus as Tugba stays home with their new baby for some time! We pray someone takes up the baton of sharing the love of Christ with them there and we sure will miss them starting next month.

 
Yunus loving on their beautiful baby daughter Melissa!
 

This picture was taken at the end of January in the Dominican Republic for the classes Justin has started teaching over the past few months. Two of these students want to start a chicken farm, one wants to start a graphic design school and one wants to start a corner store.

My friend Justen (spelled with an ‘e’ as he told the Dominicans) πŸ™‚ came down to help co-teach and share from his experiences as a small business owner in Rochester, NY. He’s a personal trainer and has his own gym as well as a nutrition business on the side.

The 2 Justin’s hadn’t seen each other in over a decade (friends since high school) but picked up right where they left off.

It was great to see Justen use his gifts to serve others and see his heart light up for international missions in person for the first time. This was his first time overseas besides Canada and he had a blast I dare say.  πŸ™‚

The students really appreciated his insights as well as the stretches that he lead us all through after lunch to wake us back up. He even was able to help some of our American staff with questions about nutrition and inflammation.

If you’re a small business owner and would like to come down and serve in a teaching capacity let me know and we’ll get it on the calendar sometime!!!

 

Praises:

  • Safe travels to the Dominican Republic and back
  • Living in our own house!
  • David’s health has been better overall the past few weeks
  • Yunus found a job in Cincinnati
  • Yunus and Tugba have a healthy baby girl!

Prayers:

  • To grow our family, God willing!
  • Continued safe travels to the Dominican the rest of the year
  • Continued connections for Stef in Louisville
  • David continues to be healthy and happy; he’s a really fun age right now!

Missionary Update from the Sudsberry Family

Going Global

The first picture above is from New Day Christian Church as they had myself and one of our key local leaders Amado Elvis Batista on a panel to talk about global church planting. What a great church!

The second picture is from our church planting conference a couple of weeks ago. I put this conference together 3 years ago. Year one we had 100 leaders, year 2 we had 150 leaders, and this year over 200 leaders/pastors/planters joined in with a goal of either “Going or Sending.”

We are starting simple, reproducible churches. They focus in on Discipleship, Mission, and Multiplication. We see these 3 pieces to be key in understanding what it means to follow Jesus and be the church. Our goal in 2020 is to see over 100 churches started…we are at 71 and in 9 prisons!

The second picture is key to understanding what God is doing next. This is a group of leaders from Monterrey, Mexico. My home church Plainfield Christian Church, Plainfield, IN connected us to some leaders they have spent a lot of time investing in over many years. These men understand God is asking them to start a new network of churches in Monterrey. It was such a joy to encourage these guys to keep pursuing Jesus and it will be amazing to see what God does with this connection!!

Pray for Nathan!!

 
“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.)
