Spotlight on Missions

From Jeff, Robin, Logan & Jordan Awe

“September is a month of transition.  We are all moved out of the bus, and our focus is changing from back-to-back weeks of travel and ministry…the rest of what we do!  There are many things in the office that we need to address.  Jeff will be getting to work on finishing the Knobloch bus as well as all the other responsibilities he has.  The boys have school and its various activities.  Robin gets to teach school and work on a variety of things at the office.  We will enjoy getting back to worshipping and serving in our home church…that is when we aren’t at missionary conferences, doing ministry updates at supporting churches or various other scheduled programs!  We appreciate your prayers and financial support as we continue sharing the gospel and begin to plan for future ministry opportunities.  Thank you!”
