September '15 Mission News

Our September missionary of the month is Mary Peterson. She is a member of our church and we have faithfully supported her since 1980, to which she says, “what a testimony to God’s faithfulness and the church’s faithfulness to God as we!!.” She has served with Wycliffe Bible Translators for the past 38 years. During that time she has served in Peru, Papua New Guinea and the last several years in North Carolina with JAARS, which is Wycliffe’s technical arm. She is the office manager of her department which buys goods that aren’t available overseas, or the price is too high, and ships them by air or sea to the Wycliffe missionaries in countries all over the world. Her co-worker is Linda Potter.

Mary asks that we pray for her that she will use her time well each day for His glory. For more information, see her recent letter on the missions bulletin board.

Our mission for the month is
Youth for Christ. YFC has after school clubs that work with middle school and high school students. They also provide Christian homes for foster care children. Please pray for their school clubs which will begin soon and for the more than 100 youth that attended YFC camp this summer, that their faith in Christ will grow. YFC loves every young person. Through the highs and lows, they provide a listening ear and a helping hand and share the love of Christ.
