Howdy folks! We are back in North America for our MINA (Missions in North America), which takes place every three years as long term missionaries with MB mission (check out mbmission.org if you haven’t and see what our other brothers and sisters are doing amongst the least reached!)
Our MINA is a time for;
-Visiting with sending congregations and individuals
– Encouraging local mission
-Raising prayer and financial partners for the next term
We left Panama August 20th and headed to beautiful British Columbia, Canada. There we connected with other missionary families who have left the field to fulfill their MINA during a retreat hosted by MB Mission. This was also a time to reconnect with the folks in the office who work so hard behind the scenes to make the ministry overseas possible. We feel very thankful to be a part of this family, they take good care of us!
We visited our supporting church in the BC area and stayed in the homes of the loving families that have partnered with us. After BC, we were in Saskatchewan, then to Kansas, to Oklahoma, back to Kansas (for a retreat in which 22 young people committed themselves to missions), and now South Carolina!
We have cherished our time with each family that has opened their home to us, keeping us rested, fed, and encourged! We feel truly blessed and loved by the team of people who have chosen to walk alongside us for God´s ministry in Panama. Although we have been go, go, go on the road, we feel refreshed by the hospitality and love of His people.
I thank my God upon every remembrance of you. – Philippians 1:3
We still have more visits to make in North Carolina, Ohio, and possibly St. Louis…..
