MISSIONS UPDATES

“Do not remember the former things, or consider the things of old.
I am about to do a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?
I will make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19

Change is in the wind for the missionary couple that our congregation supports monthly, Bob & Kristi Rice.
Please read about these changes below so you can support them in prayer as we also (as a church) support them financially.

Easter Greeting:
 
Christ is risen! Warm Easter greetings to you from the shores of Lake
Kivu in Rwanda. We wanted to share a link to the webinar that we were
part of last week, in case you missed it but still want to see it. We
shared about our call to mission, our participation in ministry in
Congo, and what our roles will be in South Sudan. You can find the
video in the upper-right corner of our profile page, here:
You can make the video full-screen, although the window with the
video of us remains fairly small. Still, we thought you might find it
helpful to "hear from us" directly. Please let us know if you have
any trouble accessing it.
 
Thank you for your prayers for our travel this month. We are in the
midst of an encouraging and inspiring conference with friends and
colleagues in Rwanda. Please continue to pray for our visit to
Kananga in Congo next week.
 
In Christ,
 
Bob and Kristi
 
 

 

To learn more about how this came about and what our roles will be, you can:

Prayer requests:
1. Thanks for answered prayer regarding discernment in this call to South Sudan.
2. Safe travel to Rwanda, Congo, and South Sudan.
3. Peace in the Kasai region of Congo, and also in South Sudan.
4. Language learning in South Sudan - for facility in learning and a good language helper.
5. An end to the famine in South Sudan.
We leave in just two weeks, so are busy with preparations and packing. We really appreciate your prayers during this challenging period of transition and adjustment. We love to hear from you! If you ever have any questions or want to share any thoughts with us, please just let us know.
 
We pray for God to meet you in a fresh way in this season of Lent and Easter. We celebrate the hope we have in our Risen Savior, and pray that all may know the hope and life that Jesus wants for us.
 
Bob and Kristi.
