Together Tuesday: Sending Well Part Three

When I was with you and was in need, I was not a burden to anyone, for the brothers who came from Macedonia fully supplied my needs. I kept myself from being a burden to you in any way, and will continue to do so.

2 Corinthians 11:9

Where God lays on our heart we must go. If we cannot go we must give! Today’s podcast continues the series about sending missionaries in the best way possible. If you haven’t heard part one click here, or part two click here.

Together Tuesday: Sending Well Part Two

You will do well to send them on their way in a manner worthy of God. For they went out for the sake of the Name, accepting nothing from the Gentiles. Therefore we ought to support such men, so that we may be fellow workers with the truth.

-3 John 6-8

What kind of support do missionaries need? How can we send missionaries well? Last week we spoke about moral support  (we invite you to click here to listen or share last week’s podcast).

This week we discuss logistical support. What are some of the small things you can do to support your missionary in this way? We have big and small answers to that question.

Finally, brethren, pray for us that the word of the Lord will spread rapidly and be glorified, just as it did also with you.

Together Tuesday: Meet The Hunnicutts

The mother, daughter team of Deborah and Sarah Hunnicutt are winning people for Christ in Roatan, Honduras by reaching one student at a time.

Deborah is both the school administrator and a teacher at Samuel Raymond Christian School, a community-based bilingual Christian school. She also leads English classes for adults and teaches English classes for the national police on the island. All of these ministries are a means to live out the gospel and to share it in relationship. Here is a quick interdiction video for Deborah.

Sarah has already been in Roatan, Honduras for three years and feels honored God has allowed her to be a part of the work He’s doing there. Sarah’s main job is as a teacher and mentor at a Christian school on the island, and she has a heart for the middle school students there, especially the middle school girls. In 2017, God led Sarah to connect her passion through Global Strategy. Here is Sarah’s introduction video.

If you would like to know more about the ministry that Hunnicutts are doing in Honduras click here for Deborah and here for Sarah.

Will you take some time and pray for the Hunnicutts today? Together we can make a difference!

Our friends and fellow missionaries Jonathan and Beth Todd serve Christ in Brazil. We love them, support them and believe in their ministry.  099ACC54-4662-4E41-8BF3-49D0EA4EE495

Here is what our friends wrote on Facebook recently: “We have our visas, we have our plane tickets, and we are returning to Brazil on February 25! As we are getting ready to fly out, we find ourselves in the position that we are in need of more financial partners so that we can continue to serve in Brazil.”

Would you prayerfully consider being a part of this ministry? If so, please follow this link  and learn more. 

Together we can make a difference!
