We had the opportunity to share lunch with two young couples that are here raising support for their ministry. It was a tremendous blessing to hear how the Lord is working in evangelism and discipleship with CRU in Hungry. MRC has loaned them cars, networked to connect them with friends in other cities and mostly have sought to be an encouragement to them.
Linn and John were in north Georgia Sunday through Friday, May 15 - 20 for a Debrief Retreat. They were a part of a team that included five debriefers, five interns and several other staff. There were 5 units (couples or individuals), 8 total, being debriefed. All of the missionaries there were met by the Lord in deep and real ways.
"What a wonderful week, tears and all, at the debrief retreat. Thank you both for your part in making it memorable! Linn, our chats made me want to know you more!!! Love the 'hair chats'...
John it was your kind words last year that put me on the road that ultimately led me to the debrief week. Thank you! It was such a rich time as we were given direction, space and encouragement to look at things that have made us stumble. What a gift to start believing in oneself again...our original design self, not what our circumstances have tried to tell us".
"Your sensitivity to my debriefing process and the movement of the Holy Spirit were greatly appreciated. I leave Fellowship Valley feeling so much lighter than when I came and I know that the fruit of your ministry into my life will only bring more freedom and a restoration of what the enemy tries to kill, steal and destroy in my life."
We currently have 3 vehicles in our "fleet." It is such a special blessing for our missionaries to have the possibility of borrowing a car while they are in the States. It relieves a tremendous burden for them when we can say "sure we have a car you may use!" We thank the Lord for His provision of a 2001 Buick Park Avenue, a 2005 Honda van and a 1995 Volvo station wagon. The van has been a special blessing for families with young children. We have two families using it this summer!
We would also appreciate hearing from you if you have any car seats you would like to donate. We have a request for a seat for a 2 year old ( 24 pounds) and several booster seats.
