October Missionary of the Month...

Read below for an update from her

Although Florida is opening up more with the Covid19 restrictions our Cru headquarters still remain closed.  I've been working from my home for almost 7 months.  We probably won't return until 2021.  There are 14  on our MK2MK team and we are allowed to have our staff meetings in person now.  It's so wonderful to be in the same room as my co-workers. 

Please pray for our families who are in transition.  We've had many families during Covid19 return from overseas and move to Orlando.  It's hard for our team watching the care we once were able to provide our MKs look different from the care we're usually able to offer. We trust God knows what he is doing, but as they walk through this transition, please pray for wisdom and inspiration on where and how to engage and come alongside.  We are hoping to start getting away from the virtual meetings we have been doing with the elementary, middle school and high schooler aged mks, to meeting in person.  

We have a new President of Campus Crusade for Christ (Cru).  October 1st Steve and Christy Sellers were commissioned by the Board of Directors of Cru.  We were able to watch via live stream.  Please pray for Steve and Christy as they lead us through these challenging times we face and into a fruitful future in helping to fulfill the Great Commission.

Pray for me as I lead a group of 14 women from church through a study of Philippians. It's a 6 week study and is being done virtually.  Please pray that God will minister through his Word and cause a special bond to happen since we are unable to meet in person. 

Pray that I will persevere and stand firm during these days of uncertainty with regard to all that is happening in our world today.  It's easy to lose heart and become discouraged.  Pray that I will trust that God is in control.  

Thank you for your faithful prayers!

Blessings!
