Field Missionary Updates
Sue & Todd Austin
Since their returned from Jamaica to the states in March Todd has been facing a new physical challenge. He has been recently diagnosed with congestive heart failure. While the condition is treatable, we are believing God will heal him completely. Sue is helping care for him and they could use our continued support and prayers as they navigate the “new” season of being back in the U.S. during a pandemic along with a health crisis. We know God is in control and will see them through this season, but want to share this request with all who love and support the Austins!
In early June, once the Jamaican border was opened, Mike Ginter flew home to Kentucky to start his six month sabbatical. After serving in Jamaica as the Field Director for the past five years, he will be using this six month furlough to recharge. Continue to pray for Mike as he has been holding down the fort in Jamaica during the outbreak of COVID-19. During his stay in the states, we are blessed to have volunteers and staff in Jamaica to help us as we continue to support and manage our outstanding staff there. Our ministry continues, but in a different way without teams (at the moment).
Having been on the island since February Deirdre is serving with limitations during the COVID-19 conditions. There are several churches doing food pantries and she is working with them and doing remote Bible studies and prayers within the neighborhood where she serves. Please continue to pray for her health and safety as she works to engage and encourage the Jamaicans.
Bob & Rebecca Weaver
With travel being limited, Bob and Rebecca are continuing to pursue their calling to serve in Belize. They are waiting upon the Lord to be missionaries in Belize. Their support is coming in and they are waiting patiently for God to bring them safely to Belize with their family.
