Missions Update

Missions Updates

    • News from Nigeria.  Victor has begun work with Ime Effiong, and continues working with Albert and Joseph. He also continues working with WBS students and additionally writes and prints his own literature.  We heard recently from Victor that he and Joseph are safe, but must be careful due to the volatile political situation there. Victor in the South of Nigeria can move and work freely. Joseph, being in the North where the Boko Haram are active, must be more careful.

    • Russia update.  Natasha and Arkasha are continuing in works that continue to make disciples and new Christians.  They were never able to obtain a visa to visit the USA, which was a disappointment for both them and us. Their work in Russia, especially with young people and with addictions counseling, is a beacon of hope.

    • Eight Oaks.  Landon & Kate have returned from Ghana; however, we will continue to support one of the eight girls financially for the coming budget year.  The girls continue to grow and develop into young women who will be a credit to their nation. Big Sarah, who had to go back to her mother for a time, is now back with the other girls and is prospering and growing.

    • Impact Houston.  The work continues there unabated, even as health issues force some of the leadership to take a less active role.  Continue to pray for this effort in inner-city Houston.

    • The Bridge of Topeka After school programs are progressing well, with continuing emphasis on building solid relationships with children and families.  The “Lunch Buddies” program has expanded to over half a dozen elementary schools, and there are plans to eventually be in all 17 elementary schools. RiverWalk has provided support for some of this expansion.
