June 2020 Update

Another month has passed and thankfully many churches are beginning to physically assemble together again! As believers, we have much for which to be grateful during these trying times in our nation’s history. Our family has been so encouraged by your innovation and resilience, and we are blessed to have you as ministry partners.

Many of you have prayed for our deputation schedule. We happily report that God has answered this request! We are finally back on the road, working to raise the remainder of our financial support for the ministry work in Sierra Leone. As Jesus did not place any “Stay-at-Home” disclaimers on the Great Commission, we seek to remain diligent to the task He has given us. Our appointment schedule for the remainder of the year is growing as God continues to provide and to fill our calendar with meetings. Lord willing, we will move on our new targeted date. Please continue to pray for:

  • The filling of the few remaining open dates on our deputation calendar & provision of new ministry partners for reaching Sierra Leone for Christ
  • The ministry & ministry leaders in Sierra Leone as they continue to deal with the COVID-19 threat/crisis
  • Continued physical, spiritual, and emotional health of our family
  • Wisdom in the planning & logistical process as our projected January launch date approaches

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and support!

COVID-19 Ministry Update

Hello Friends & Ministry Partners,

I hope you all are doing well while navigating through this challenging time of crisis in our country. We have all been given a unique opportunity to point people to Jesus as a result of COVID-19 and minister in creative ways!  We know everyone has been impacted by this virus, I am reaching out to you all regarding the effect of this specifically on our deputation schedule.

Due to COVID-19 and the understandable cancellation of meetings, our September launch date  to Sierra Leone has been pushed back. This has opened several dates on the calendar from now through the fall as we continue to raise our needed, monthly financial support. While unexpected, we trust God will bless this additional time of deputation and use this for our good. 

Like you, we are trying to minister in the midst of a crisis and praying for our pastors and churches during this time. We are offering our services in an effort to bless and encourage churches and pastors while quarantined. If anyone is interested in having us share an encouraging devotional, please let me know. We have the technology (Zoom, Google Hangouts, Skype, FaceTime, Facebook, etc.) and the availability to share during services or small group times. Please let us know how we can continue to help and serve you, and know that you are in our prayers continually!

March 2020 Ministry Update

It is such a blessing to have you all on the team for reaching Sierra Leone for Christ! Can you believe September is only 6 months away? While we are in countdown mode toward our target of a September move,  God continues to bless us with a busy schedule of meetings and conferences. We recognize that accomplishing these goals are a result of God honoring obedience, faithful giving, and prayer.  

Shaun and Wes will be traveling to Sierra Leone in June. They will serve at the annual military conference, secure housing,  and finalize numerous other details related to our family’s move. There still remains much work to be done over the next several months and we are asking you to pray, specifically, for the following: 

  • The remainder of our monthly financial needs, as well as the remaining $5,000.00 needed for our one-time set-up cost expenses, to be met
  • The filling of our few remaining calendar openings 
  • Wisdom regarding the logistics of our move in September
  • The health of our family (physically, spiritually, & emotionally)

Thank You!

February 2020 Ministry Update

Hello Friends and Ministry Partners!

The first month of this new decade is finished, and we are on count-down for our launch date September. We praise the Lord for many things:

The provision of new partners from our recent appointments in January.  A full schedule with and multiple upcoming mission conferences. 
The salvation of a new soul last week

Through the generosity of many of you, we only lack $6,000.00 to meet our set-up expense needs! If you would like to contribute in helping us get to the field, just click on the “Donate” button below. God is good and is answering your prayers for our family in health, travel, and accomplishing our goals to reach Sierra Leone. Please continue to remember us before the Lord. Here is how you can pray:

  • God will continue supply our needs and give us more partners in the mission.
  • Our calendar will stay full with meetings throughout the year until we reach the field in September.
  • The people of Sierra Leone will remain open and receptive to the Gospel.
  • People here in the US will respond positively to the Gospel and the Great Commission as we share it.
