Dear Friends, We are excited! My wife and I have been invited to be a part of a ministry team travelling to Rwanda. We’ll be there ministering ten days. Leading the team is Bible teacher, Dr. Tony Nichols. He is senior pastor of Church Alive NWA, located in Bentonville, AR. He is a friend and I work closely with him in the church and in NW Arkansas. He's an amazing Christian leader with solid biblical scholarship and attesting miracles as a part of his life.
Tony serves Rwanda by mentoring leaders. This country experienced genocide but is an example of gospel transformation. We’ll deliver training materials on kingdom business and church leadership. Others will work on construction and medical needs. I've been asked to teach on "emerging apostles in the developing church," and about fatherhood. Lana will teach about family roles and parenting. Our desire is to serve and strengthen those laboring in the fields. What an opportunity! Would you consider supporting us in this effort? We need your help! We can’t do it alone. Lana and I are working to raise a total of $8000.00. Will you help us? Other needs are lodging, meals, and training materials. Our team is also covering the cost for the Rwandan pastors, about 500. We’re buying building supplies and medical supplies. Funds raised above our own personal expenses will go to cover these costs.
We are asking for your help like Paul did when he wrote Philippians 4:17-19, “Not that I desire the gift itself, but I seek for the profit which increases to your account… And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
