Paul and Colleen are grateful for our church body and for standing strong with them as partners, along with the families who send cards and pray for them!
Here are comments and prayer requests they have provided:
We have been serving in DC since March 2005.
Our main aim is "encouraging and equipping emerging servant leaders in the Spirit of Jesus". The name of the ministry project SERVING DC AND BEYOND emphasizes our coming alongside urban and international leaders both here in Washington, D.C. but also in numerous foreign countries. Out of Paul's background as a missionary kid in Egypt and Africa, much of his focus is on African diplomats here in DC and African leaders in government, church, and civic organizations on the Continent. Colleen continues to foster relationships with women, especially single moms to assist them in their life skills and spiritual growth.
Please pray for our support to continue strong. Many of our long-standing family and partners are getting up in years or have gone on to their eternal rewards. :)
Pray for us to influence the next generation in discipleship through our Prepare-Enrich training for marriage mentors, pastors, and counselors. Also, Servant Leadership training and The Jesus Centered Life disciplining ministry.
Pray for our own family members. That we would all draw near to the Lord. And pray for Open Doors with leaders on Capitol Hill and the Embassies here in DC.
