It seems that missions work has been taking many of my coworkers away this summer! Here's another one lead by our Director of Alumni Relations Michelle Peel:
- May 17-31 serving with Re: Hope in Glasgow, Scotland alongside alumni Brian (BA '98, MDIV '01) and Kellie (BS '99) Ingraham and Michael (BS 99) and Jaelyn (BS 01) Libolt
- June 1-8 serving with Tim (BS ‘99) and Rachel (BS '00) Uthmann in Rome, Italy. Ministry is with International Tteams
- June 9-30 serving with Don and Danielle Pierce in Jinja, Uganda.
The following is a letter dated, May 17th, 2009. The PDF's that follow are subsequent updates for you to download, read, be encouraged, and pray over. We will post new ones as we get them.
Good morning faithful prayer partners,
Warmest of greetings to you in the name of our precious Lord and Savior. I trust this greeting finds you well and enjoying His richest blessings on this beautiful Sunday morning. As we prepare to take off and cross the ocean today, I just wanted to drop a quick note to say hello and to thank you again for your prayers and your support for our team as we embark on this significant time of ministry in Scotland.
Our plan is to depart PDX at 12:20 PM today and fly straight through to Amsterdam and then onto Edinburgh (arriving at 10:20 AM tomorrow morning) where we will join Multnomah Alumni Brian and Kellie Ingraham, Mike and Jaelyn Libolt, and Brian and Shawna Luse to serve along side them in the ministry of Re: Hope for these next two weeks.
Please pray for a safe flight, that our luggage would arrive in Edinburgh when we do and for God to work in and through our team in powerful ways!
Excited to get there and to be a part of what God is doing in Glasgow, Scotland. Thanks so much for your prayers!
With deepest appreciation,
Michelle (on behalf of the team)
