The U.S. Board meeting is May 14 and 15 in Dallas. We will be welcoming two new board members: Sheldon Blattner and Glenn Daman. Another new member, Glen Faxon, is unable to attend because of previous commitments. Please pray that these new board members will quickly get “on board” and the board will have great wisdom and harmony. Among other things, the board will be voting on the budget for July 2015-June 2016. We are also in the process of developing some “metrics” to assess the progress of Village Missions.
Brian writes, “Thank you for praying for my eye! Other than a large amount of “floaters,” I do not have any other complications or restrictions from the tear in my retina. Please pray that either these floaters will dissolve or I will get used to them!”
Please pray for the final planning of the staff conferences. The first staff conference starts in Rapid City, SD, on June 1, followed by the conference in Graeagle, CA, on June 8. Other conferences will follow in quick succession. We are rejoicing and thanking the Lord for His provision that has enabled us to have a regular staff conference for the first time in several years. Please pray that our missionaries will be refreshed and encouraged by this time together.
Pray for the four accepted missionaries from this past school as they raise required support and get things lined up for placement. Pray for the two interns, Chris & Ronae Cleland and Justin & Sarah Ingram, as they anticipate their new assignments.
Pray for Mike and Judie Jones as we take a few days to rest and regroup from a very busy April.
Roy Adrian writes, “We have just completed another Northern Village Missions church conference. Lyndon Wall was our speaker and did a great job. We enjoyed fellowship with believers from Wistaria, Rose Prairie, Willow River and Nukko Lake. We praise God for the encouragement and blessing we received.”
