JULY 2018 MISSIONARY OF THE MONTH

Lois McMartin is the Director of the Reach Global
Member Care & Development Team. What is
Member Care?

Some people think it means counseling, or
coming alongside the hurting. It is that, but
it is so much more. It is about effectiveness.
To help our missionaries be most effective
in different circumstances, seasons of life, and
through various life challenges is the goal.

We recently received the news that after 18 years
of service, Lois will be retiring as of September 30
th.
She is loved and appreciated by the Reach Global
staff around the world as someone who deeply cares
for them and who wants the best for them and their
families as they serve the Lord in some very difficult
places.

Thanks was expressed to our church for our faithful
prayers and financial support for Lois. Please continue
to pray for her as she concludes her work with the
Member Care Team.
