DAAM – Robinson – Summer 2017 Newsletter
Annual Mission Banquet -The evening progressed as usual on April 28, 2017 = fellowship, dinner, praise and worship, ministry highlights and the sharing of God’s Word.
The turnout was somewhat smaller this year as a result of much illness within the Mission family as well as within our extended family – all of you who support the ministry at Detroit’s Afro-American Missions, Inc.
There were 50-55 people in attendance this year; there was enough food left over to provide a complete meal for Tuesday Ministry….read more…
COM – Lynnn & Mary Degener – June 2017 Newsletter
Our National COM Staff Conference was held at Cannon Beach Christian Conference Center at the end of April. Cannon Beach is remotely located right on the Pacific Ocean near Portland, Oregon. This was the first time to have this conference on the West Coast. During the conference the Presidency of COM was officially transferred from Glen Osborn to Daniel Su. Mary and I have known both of these Godly men since we joined COM and we appreciate their contributions and leadership. read more…
Fridsro – Perera – June – 2017
We just finished the Annual General Meeting of Fridsro for 2016.
I am always in awe when we take time to look back and see the continuous growth and impact of the ministry.
This past year we were able to reach, teach, and help over 30,000 people. That is no small feat for a small organization with a handful of committed staff and small budgets. This would not have been possible without a dedicated team who believes in the vision and true partners such as yourselves.
However, I believe that the most important contributions to this success are God’s Favor, Blessing, Protection, and Provision! With willing hands to work and partners to provide, this makes for a testimony of God’s Kingdom “here on earth.”
This is a map of all the places around the country that have been reached through the ministry of Fridsro.
May God continue to bless each one of you for your support, your partnership, your love, and your prayers in this ministry..read more…
WISH – Beyond The Fence – May 2017 Newsletter
It’s always fun when our pre-Haiti world intersects with our Haitian life. We have known Gaston Jolicouer for 30 years when we attended the same church in Moncton, NB. The first weekend of April he came, along with 3 men from ShareWord Global, to stay with us. Their mission is clear: to share the gospel of Jesus Christ using free copies of God’s Word so that people will accept God’s gift of salvation. They arrived with boxes of Bibles and promptly started passing them out…..read more…
CRWM Advocate – April 2017 News
Travelling to the Middle East was not on my radar. The modern-day stories of violence and atrocities against women that permeate North American news kept me away. But something twinged in me when the Egypt Vision Trip was introduced. I heard a small voice say “you’re going on this” and I responded with reserved delight…read more…
CFS-Campus Chapel – Spring 2017 Inklings
The ProVocation Project, a collaboration of the Center for Faith and Scholarship and the Lilly Foundation’s Campus Ministry Theological Exploration of Vocation, wrapped up its second year
in April by saying goodbye to our 2016-17 Fellows cohort and saying hello to our incoming group for 2017-18…..read more…
CRWM – Huyser – Prayer Letter – April-May 2017
While in Japan we had the opportunity to attend a Discover Your Bible leadership training led by CRWM missionaries Jeong and Misook Gho. Some of you may be familiar with these materials as they are produced by Coffee Break, a ministry used by many churches in the U.S. and Canada. The studies are written in such a way that the participants are invited to live into the story and to share their insights with each other rather than just listening to a lecture.”….read more…
CRWM – Padilla-DeBorst – Twin Peaks – April 20176
For our family, 2017 is a year of graduations and open-ended questions.
We are looking forward to celebrating Luana’s graduation from Sarah Lawrence (New York) on May 19, Ruth’s PhD hooding ceremony at Boston University on May 20, and Jonathan’s graduation from Evergreen State College on June 17. While Maya continues in Boston and Maria Isabel in Bogotá, Colombia, Natalia will begin college at New York University late August. Meanwhile, Anton, Jonathan and Luana are all wondering and searching for their next steps. And we wonder what an empty nest will feel like!

ISI – Champoux – Easter 2017
We seek to make disciples among the 141 countries that God has brought to this area as Jesus did… through much prayer and serving people. We serve and develop friendships in various ways. Recently, I took V (in photo below) and 2 of his friends (S & N) to Shipshewana to visit the Amish community. We had dinner with an Amish family, rode a buggy and helped to milk their cows. We talked about quality of life and purpose of life…….read more…
WWLAB – Bos – Real Hope for Haiti – March 2017

March 20/17 James flew out of Kalamazoo Michigan to Cazale Haiti to install and train at Real Hope for Haiti. This was a brand new lab install. From the pictures you can see that it was also a very small lab install! read more…
