On behalf of all of us here at Village Missions, we would like to say, “Merry Christmas.” We thank you for continual lifting our Village Missions family in prayer. We pray that you will have a blessed Christmas as we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.
Because of increased demands in the Village Missions office and the need for accounting duties to be separated for accountability and to institute safeguards, Village Missions will be hiring a staff bookkeeper/office manager as soon as possible. Please pray with us for just the right person to fulfill this ministry.
Judie and Mike Jones will be taking some time off during the holidays. Pray for good rest and recharging of the batteries.
Pray for the moves taking place shortly after the first of the year as missionaries take on new responsibilities and churches gain new leadership.
Village Missions U.S. is involved in a major transition in the health care it provides its missionaries, mostly through the churches. We supplement some of the costs (about $185,000 last fiscal year) for churches that cannot afford the health insurance. We are switching January 1 to combination of a Christian sharing ministry, health reimbursement account, and prescription coverage. Our plan is required to be ObamaCare compliant, so it is quite a complicated endeavor but should result in reduced costs. Please pray for wisdom and for a smooth transition to this new plan.
Roy & Lennie Adrian, Sorrento BC: “It is Christmas time and we want to wish all of Village Missions Canada’s supporters, in prayer and finances etc, a very blessed Christmas season. We pray that the real message of Christmas, the Son of God becoming a man in order to be our Redeemer, would outshine and outclass all the commercialism of the season. We pray that the Name of Jesus would be lifted up and glorified by all His people. “
