MISSIONS UPDATE - FROM BEN & BERT WENKE, CROSSROADS MISSIONS
The Mission held it's Christmas dinner on December 19th. Over 120 people came for food bags, loaves of love, stockings filled with candy, a hot ham meal, toys and Bibles. Each person received something to take home. Your gifts of food, finances and faithful servants* helped us to give to the elderly, young, abused and homeless. Thank you!
*Faithful servants - Gloria and Jim Small, Karla Cafarelli and Rory George.
MISSIONS UPDATE – MATT AND HOLLY MELTON • ASU CAMPUS
From Matt & Holly Melton serving with CRU
Holly has written "Disciple to Disciplemaker" and the training has been life-changing for Bri. She prayed for someone to disciple and a friend on social media came to mind. Bri and Miranda had never met or spoken to each other. Miranda and her husband were atheists. As they saw how evil the world could be this past year, they began to consider the idea of God. Miranda started to ask Bri questions over social media. They exchanged phone numbers and Bri invited Miranda over text to meet weekly. Bri was terrified but chose to obey God. Miranda responded immediately with excitement and said yes!
The lessons are outlined so Bri knows what to teach each week. The content is rich with scripture to back it up, and the questions lead to deep discussions. Miranda questioned every Bible verse, everything Jesus did, if the Bible could be real, etc. Recently, Miranda and her husband were baptized. Bri still hasn't met Miranda, but their weekly Zoom calls and frequent texting have grown into a beautiful friendship.
MISSIONS UPDATE – ERIK & TERRI POWELL with SCRIPTURES IN USE
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
'To everything there is a season, a time for every activity under heaven..., a time to plant and a time to harvest.'
Thank you so much for continuing to bless us by your faithful support to our work as we 'plant' God's stories among refugees in the Tucson are.
This time of planting has been very precious to us! Many Muslim refugee families have stolen our hearts.
Please pray for a time of harvest to begin where many will follow Jesus.
Blessings, Teri and Erik
