WISH – Beyond The Fence – February 2018 Newsletter
We are so appreciative of the WISH and Wesleyan staff that help make these ministries run. They labor daily and are often behind the scenes doing many different kinds of jobs all the while offering us friendship and advice. Last year many of us missionaries started talking about hosting all of the staff and their families for a fun activity. Our MK teacher, Brittany decided to organize the activity, so a date was selected and the 1st Annual Family Fun Day was planned. We had water balloon games, an obstacle course, a ball toss, face painting, ping pong, relay races, soccer, and other impromptu games. The day ended with hot dogs, salads, and watermelon. We were thrilled with the turnout of over 150 people and loved the opportunity to celebrate family and fun together…read more…

COM – Lynn & Mary Degener – December 2017 Newsletter
This year we included Chinese Christian Fellowship Church in our Christmas Dinner to make it the best ever with 100 Chinese and 30 American servers and table host. The message of “Christ in Christmas” was all given in Chinese. The best thing happened at the end of the talk. Our Chinese guest were given a “Response Survey” card.
