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 sharing God's love with students at ASU
Three short stories of three students who attended a Fall Retreat:
Jeremy started to seek God after his mom passed away from Covid. He now has a better understanding of how to fully commit his life to Christ and walk in freedom.
David knew someone was going to tell him he had to change and he came to the retreat determined he wasn't going to change! After hearing Holly speak, he knew he couldn't hold back any longer.
Talli who identifies as nonbinary and prefers the name Augustus, the name of the avatar she created, came to the retreat knowing no one. After the retreat, Talli met Holly at a local coffee shop to talk about her spiritual journey. Holly shared a clear presentation of the Gospel and Talli gave her life to Christ right there. She said she finally felt free and all her guilt was gone! Holly is now discipling her.
Please pray for these three students as they grow in their faith and for Holly and Matt as they disciple them.
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
