July & August 2014 Update
What a month we’ve had!
We started off July by working with Off the Grid (a 45-hour program centred around God’s heartbeat for the nations). The event spanned two weekends and involved us getting to live in Jungle Camp with youth groups and families from Oshawa to London. One group that stayed decided to make an awesome video about their experience at Off the Grid. It is a great watch! You can watch it, too, through the photo link below:
We hosted the last “Catch The Vision” this past weekend. We have been working hard to transition this program into “Off the Grid: Exposure”. We are very excited to see this program move along and become even more useful.
Our most exciting information this month is that we’ve been given a date to depart for “Asia-Pacific”! We will be moving to Sal@tiga in November of 2015 to begin learning Ind0nesi@n. We’ll be mailing our visa information to co-workers in Asia-Pacific while we’re here in California.
What we’ve been up to this month:
- Lauren went on the two-day Ladies’ Hike with students from Jungle Camp.
- We set up for Off the Grid and lived up in Jungle Camp for two weekends in July.
- We planned, prepared, and prayed for our last Catch the Vision that took place on August 1st & 2nd.
Please pray with us:
- We are in California until August 20th, as Lauren’s sister gets married this Saturday! We are enjoying spending time with family and reuniting with church family!
- The fall semester at the MTC starts up with orientation on August 25th. We are excited to meet the students and their families from the U.S., Canada, Bermuda, Germany, and Taiwan!
- NTM Canada is having a rep conference Sept. 8th-13th. Please pray for all who will be traveling and that we’d have an encouraging time together as we develop programs to mobilize believers into tribal missions!
*We are updating our partner address book! If you are one of our partners, would you be willing to reply to this e-mail and send us an updated photo of yourself (and family) and a mailing address? Thanks!*
Thank you for praying with us!
Till Every Tribe is Reached,
Mark, Lauren, & Leo
