Tomorrow is the BIG day.........

Ministry Partners and Friends,

It's hard to believe that tomorrow I leave for my 8th trip to the beautiful country of Rwanda. It will be great to touch bases again with our ministry partners and friends there.
Rwanda is a country that focuses on relationships and building relationships with many of the beautiful people there has been a blessing from God to my heart.

This past year has been filled with mountain tops and valleys but the valleys have been a time learning to depend and trust, even more, the dear Savior who has a good plan for me and IRM. Jer. 29:11

I could only offer praises to the Lord as some of those valleys were just evidence that once again God is going to allow the team, and me, see Him do great and mighty things in Rwanda. The U.S. team He has put together are dedicated servants of God and I could not be more pleased that He has called each one of them to minister there with IRM for 3 weeks. The same can be said of the hard working volunteer Rwanda team that is preparing for our arrival.

I will depart for Rwanda tomorrow and the team of Pastor Roger Stevens, Steve Van Buren from Klamath Falls and Pastor Al & Kathy Carpenter and Lovena Flaherty from Canby will depart on June 10. All of us will return to America on July 3.

Your partnership, with pray and finances, make these ministry trips possible.

I would appreciate your continued prayers for:

  • Open hearts for the Gospel and that we would see many come to saving knowledge in Jesus Christ
  • New and unscheduled opportunities
  • That we would find favor with the Gov.,wardens and everyone we come in contact with.
  • Travel, flight and in-country
  • The health of the team, both Rwandans and Americans
  • The remaining funds for 750 Bibles to meet our goal of 5,000
Good News !!
IRM received a "Matching Funds Grant" in the amount of $4,200.
Now every $1 donated for Bibles becomes $2
and there is still time to purchase an $8.50 Bible & Discipleship Booklet set for those who have no funds to purchase one for themselves.

Making online donations for Bibles is easy!

Thank you again for your partnership.
That none would be lost....
