Nate and Steph Crandall live in Chaing Rai, Thailand with their two children Isaac and Grace. They are currently working with Goh and Oil in Doi Chang to church plant and build relationships with the local people. Recently they hosted a a week long training for grading and processing coffee. They had 6 local farmers, 2 brothers from Egypt and a man from Indonesia attend. They were able to not only have a coffee training but also some wonderful conversations about God and build relationships. Also, this summer with a team of Americans they were able to host an English camp for 4th-6th grade students. They were able to share the Gospel to about 180 students. They were also able to host a mobile medical clinic. Over 3 days of clinics they were able to see around 600 people and share the Gospel. Goh and Oil have been a huge blessing to the Crandalls pray that God continues to work through Goh and Oil in Doi Chang. With over 800 people hearing the Gospel in 4 days pray that the seeds that were sown will grow and that many will come into a saving relationship with God.
Ken and Michelle Klepper live in Eleuthera, Bahamas with their 4 kids. Their mission is focused on disciple making and as a resource to local churches. We are most excited to be plating a new congregation this year. The Kleppers are beginning to plan a new church in partnership with our local church on Saturday nights. They are seeking to reach unchurched Bahamians using an updated church paradigm. The goal is to create a next generation congregation that presents the eternal and unchanging truth of the gospel; in a new and fresh way. Too many young Bahamians do not attend Church and they have spent the past 4 years using activities such as soccer, a sewing club, VBS, and other ways to spend quality time with young unchurched Bahamians. You can pray for the spiritual health, safety, and physical health of their family, how they can help the locals with the devastation of Dorian, The Heart and Soul House ministry, the resources and local support need to launch new ministries, their church and community ministries, Soccer Club and their local leadership and a praise is that they have completed their playground project.
Jeremy and Shawna Quattlebaum and their two daughters are missionaries with Cadence International on a military base in Japan. They are currently working on building discipleship programs for youth and adult ministry in a building called “The Lighthouse.” Their focus is on making disciples and giving them the tools to create more disciples. Also part of their work is to continue to build relationships with their brothers and sisters in Christ in Cambodia. Jeremy will be leading a group of men to Cambodia this October and Shawna will bring a team to lead a women’s retreat at the beginning of the year. Please continue to pray for a worker to come and do student ministry at the lighthouse.
