During 2016 Linn and I were involved in debriefing about 25 different missionaries and each time the Lord showed up to meet with and encourage His servants.
During 2016 Dr. Roy Ringenberg, board member and on staff with MRC, has been able to coach scores of missionaries, helping them find answers to medical issues facing them, many of whom live in difficult places with inadequate medical resources.
During 2016 MRC has loaned a car or van to 13 different families, providing thousands of miles of transportation to His servants back in the States for various reasons.
according to His riches in Glory by Christ Jesus.
However, our financial picture has again caused us to come to Him and call out for His provision. So far in 2016, MRC has spent an average of almost $1000 more per month than what has come in. And unless there is significant change within the next 6 months, MRC's finances will be depleted. You can see from the graph below that there were only two months during the year in which we met or exceeded our expenses. The one very positive month was the result of our sending out an SOS to which many of you responded very generously and for which we are very grateful.
This is not the first time this has happened. I remember in January a few years ago looking at our budget and thinking that there was no way we were going to make it through the year, but He abundantly supplied!
Prayerfully consider including MRC in your end-of-the-year giving.
God is our great supplier. We are glad to depend on Him.
Yours serving those who serve overseas,
John and Linn
