REACHING THE NATIONS
As the Church, we are called to preach the gospel and take care of the poor locally, nationally and globally. One of the ways we do that is by financially supporting strategic missions partners around the world.
Nate and Steph Crandall live in Chiang Rai, Thailand with their children, Isaac and Grace. They are currently working in Doi Chang to plant a church and build relationships with a couple of locals named Goh and Oil. These locals have been a huge blessing to the Crandalls along the way. Recently they hosted a week-long training for grading and processing coffee. They had 6 local farmers, 2 brothers from Egypt and a man from Indonesia attend. Not only were they able to hold the coffee training, but they also had wonderful conversations about God while cultivating new relationships. This summer they hosted an English camp for 4th-6th grade students with a team of Americans and were able to share the Gospel with 180 students at the camp. They also hosted a 3-day mobile medical clinic where they shared the Gospel with over 600 people! With over 800 people hearing the Gospel in just 4 days, join us as we pray for the seeds that were sown and that many will come into a saving relationship with Jesus.
Ken and Michelle Klepper live in Eleuthera, Bahamas with their four children. Their mission is focused on disciple-making and resourcing the local churches. They are most excited to be plating a new congregation this year on Saturday nights in partnership with a local church. 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. Please join us in praying for the spiritual and physical health of their family, and also for the current and future ministries they oversee and take part in on the island.
Jeremy and Shawna Quattlebaum are missionaries with Cadence International and live on a military base in Yokosuka, Japan with their two daughters. They are currently working on building discipleship programs for youth and adult ministry at a center 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 the Quattlebaums and their ministry in Japan, as well as their need for a worker to come lead student ministry at The Lighthouse.
