Brian and Carole had the privilege of visiting with Village Missionaries Dan and Cheryl Wuthrich at their field in Mayer, AZ just before we left Arizona. The Wuthrichs are off to a great start and the church has already started contributing $500 a month toward their salary (Village Missions provides the remainder of $1200 to reach the base salary of $1700). Please pray for the community of Mayer, as there are deep spiritual and other needs. Pray that the Mayer Community Church would have even greater outreach into the community and would welcome newcomers. One year ago, Brian visited the field at Mayer, before the Wuthrichs had arrived. If you would like to see pictures he took, please click on this link. Please pray for Brian and Carole as they travel to our field on Sauvie Island, the Sauvie Island Community Church, next Sunday, February 17. Brian will be preaching at the 10:00 am service. Our Sauvie Island field and our field in Yale, WA, are co-sponsoring a Bible school to train leaders and develop future Village Missionaries. You can learn more about the school by clicking on this link. Please pray for our District Representatives as they finish interviews with prospective Village Missionaries in preparation for the spring Candidate school. Candidates are planning for their week-long school to take place in mid-March at our headquarters in Dallas Oregon. Please pray for couples needing to get time off and child care for that week. Pray for our District Representatives as they gather in Dallas next week for a time of meeting and fellowship. Pray for safety for them as they travel in winter weather. Pray for Lisa West during this busy time as she handles all the details for travel and lodging.
Pray for Roy and Lennie Adrian, our Canadian Administrator, as they are currently catching up on all the office work, and connecting with various missionary families. Next week they also travel to Dallas, Oregon, for the District Representative meetings. Pray that we as Mission leadership would be able to develop our own ministries of support and encouragement for the Village Missionaries across our land.
Thank you for praying!
