Reading is Fundamental!!!!!!!!!!!

Our "Growth Plan" includes reading material.  Wow, some in depth stuff!!!!  Challenging books that make you look inside yourself and teach you how to be a better leader and presenter of God's Holy Word.  They also help with spiritual growth.  We are reading "Please Listen to Me!" by Dick Fetzer; "The Emotionally Healthy Church," by Peter Scazzero; "Abba's Child," by Brennan Manning, and a book given to us by new friends, "A Tale of Three Kings," by Gene Edwards.  I recommend all of these books if you need a refreshment of your spiritual life.  So, we have been busy reading this material and working on our "Partnership Development."  It is very exciting to watch God work in our lives and take us down new pathways.  Please pray for us as we take this new journey in our lives.  We are ready to go where God will take us on this new journey and time in our lives. And last but not least, some other good reading material;  "Read Your Bible for Yourself."

Missionary Candidacy in Colorado

On June 18, 2011, Robyn and I came before the selection committee at "Candence International" headquarters in Englewood Colorado.  We spent two weeks in training at headquarters, the first week as "candidates" and the second week as "missionaries."  It is official, we are missionaries reaching the gospel of Christ to the military.  Cadence International is an evangelical mission agency dedicated to reaching the military communities of the United States and of the world with the Good news of Jesus Christ.  There are close to 200 missionaries who work in over 50 locations worldwide.

We came home with a "Growth Plan" and partnerships to be developed.  A growth plan is designed to help us grow spiritually and prepare us for the mission field.  Partnership development is designed to partner with others in ministry both for prayer and financial support.

If you wish to learn more about "Cadence International," go to "cadence.org." If you wish to partner with us in prayer you may begin to pray for us that our "growth plan" will prepare us spiritually and that we will develop those partners for financial support.  If you wish to partner with us for financial support you can do so by going to "cadence.org" and finding our names under the "staff and missionaries" tab.
