You have a part in the greatest story - God's story - in reaching the world with the Good News of Christ! And this world needs to be reached. The Lord is with you, and under His awesome leadership, YOU CAN DO IT! The mission is possible!!

Have you ever felt stuck? Maybe you feel "stuck" now. It could be a season of life, a job, or a relationship. Maybe you're feeling stuck and overwhelmed in your life circumstances. I have some good news for you! We're going to look at how to get UNSTUCK as we travel on The Mission Suitcase Time Machine back in history. 

We all have a testimony - a story of what God has done in our lives. Every story is a gift that is precious and powerful. No story is greater than another because the Lord is the Author and our story becomes part of His story - the greatest story of all!

Why Children?

  • Jesus is making known the pristine and untouched Harvest of children around the World needs to be reached.

  • 26% of the world’s population is under age 15. More than half of those children reside in Asia alone.

  • Governments, religions, and other groups are focusing on children who are opposed to the Gospel of Jesus being shared.

  • We are reaching them through the grace of God… and with your prayers and support we will continue to do so.

And I want to share how I stayed at peace and full of joy throughout it all!
