December 2013 Prayer Letter

We had a chance to see Niagara Falls on our way back to Colorado

We had a chance to see Niagara Falls on our way back to Colorado

 In July, Ryan received an email invitation to join several personnel from TWR and their partners around the world in South Dakota in September.  The gathering was a time of exploration in the area of leadership development in media ministry.   We spent a week getting to know each other and learning about new media, trends of media around the world and leadership principles.  The heart of our president, Lauren Libby, is to invest in the lives of young men and women involved in radio and media ministry.  There are plans for more gatherings to keep building up this group of people.

October introduced an unexpected twist to our lives.  Elyse received a call about her grandfather’s (Papa) health. The doctors found cancer in Papa that came on top of his already failing kidneys. With that, the family decided to check him into hospice and asked Elyse to come and help care for Papa.  Elyse agreed and quickly found a flight to Warren, Pennsylvania.  It has been a difficult road for her family but we all appreciate Elyse being able to help.  If you want to know more, you can read  Elyse’s blog post called “The Seals: The Unexpected Journey“.

Our fundraising efforts had been a little slow in Colorado, so when Elyse arrived in Pennsylvania she took the opportunity to contact a pastor we are connected with in the area.  We hoped to get exposure to a few new people and churches.  We were blown away when we received invites to speak at four different churches in northeast Pennsylvania.  What we thought would be a two-week fundraising trip for Ryan turned into a four-week trip.

God continues to provide new opportunities for us.  Thank you for all your prayers and please keep praying for the rest of the support to come in.

TWR in the Philippines

On November 8th the news flooded with stories of the Typhoon hitting the Philippines. Among the affected were some of TWR’s personnel in sites that transmit to the Philippines and to Vietnam.
Fortunately, all staff members are safe. Soon, they will return to a very difficult situation. Many are heartbroken to see what is happening to their countries and people. The Typhoon caused power outages, preventing TWR from broadcasting and allowing the victims to find correct information about relief efforts.

The staff at TWR Philippines covet your prayers as they search for ways to continue ministering to people. Whether or not there is power for radio, there is important information these people need to hear. Maybe news that relief is coming their way or the simple message of Jesus can give these people hope. As you pray for the victims, please also pray for TWR’s staff – for wisdom as they seek to minister to their hurting people.
