Our New Missionaries Have Arrived


Our new missionaries, Steve & Beth, Maria and Kent Stetler, arrived safely here in the Rio Grande Valley in South Texas where they will be spending a year in language study. They are settling into their new home on the language school campus, using the rest of the summer to get oriented and Steve will be beginning Spanish classes in the middle of August.


Thanks for praying for them - we're so blessed to have family as our new co-workers. God is good!

They will be missed in Bedford for sure, but it will be nice for you and them to be close!

Awesome! But I can't imagine Faith Mission Church without them. Thanks for blogging, Melodie. I have a hard time keeping up with anyone here in NJ. It's kinda like being in a foreign country!ha ha Tell everyone "hello" for me.

I imagine that it will be nice having your family so much closer. I am thrilled that yet another family has heard a call from our Lord of the Harvest.
Blessings on you all,
Phillip

We were busy that day, but were praying for you all and imagining your joy to have family so close to work with. Our hearts were praying for Dad and Mom Sankey too, who had to leave you all behind. God bless you and we'll be praying for them in Language school. Hausman's in Romania
p.s. Hope Pell City camp goes well for you all, wish we could be there
