Too long since our last update! One reason was the extreme schedule of our summer: running schools, kids on break, YWAM celebrations, and visiting relatives. Good times.
We have just completed another Equip leadership training program here in Montana. That makes it 16 since 2007, on four continents. This last school hosted 19 participants and 6 staff from various parts of the world. It was a true privilege to serve these people who are committed to evangelism, discipleship, and Godly leadership in locations such as Taiwan, the Pacific, North America, Mexico, and Europe.
Two such participants were Angelina (Taiwan), and Ascala (England). Among others, they are committed to working with YWAM Taiwan to reach the Taiwanese and other Chinese speakers. For security reasons, more can’t be said right now, but we are proud of them and look forward to potentially working together again in the future.
Currently we are enjoying the end of our summer here. The YWAM ministry here in Lakeside Montana celebrated it’s 30th anniversary! Hundreds of people–staff and students sent out from here over the years–came from all over the world to join in and reunite. A special blessing for us, Jeremy’s mum and sister also arrived in time to take part. While Liz needs to return to Australia soon, Mum is staying on into October giving us all a great time of family reunion and fellowship (especially with the grand kids!).
2016 is looking like one of the fullest years since being in Montana. Family-wise, the kids are in full-swing with school: Samuel will be in 8th grade, Joel in 6th grade and Eden in 2nd! Time flies. Ministry-wise, we could potentially be running 4 Equip training programs next year. We are scheduled to run Equips in Montana, Ukraine, and Cambodia, with the possibility of another one emerging. On top of this are the teaching invitations Jeremy is receiving. We need wisdom to decide which ones to invest in.
Thanks to everyone who stays in touch over the distance, prays, and supports us in various ways. It’s a joy having such a great team.
Until the next blog…
Jeremy, Molly, Samuel, Joel, Eden (& Boomer)
