Kurt & Jill: Somewhere • 1/20/20

We set up the hall for our evangelistic Christmas dinner, not sure that many would come on Saturday, December 7. We were encouraged that some church families had invited their neighbors and they came. By the end of the evening, we had set up three extra tables and filled the hall with over 90 people including people from the church. About 25% came for the first time. Kurt explained how Jesus came to be the Good Shepherd we need.  One new Indian couple who attended also came to church the next day with their three teenagers. After the evening service [...]

Tom Smith: ITEM • 1/14/20

In Kenya, ITEM Works to Teach Poor, Uneducated Recently, Daniel Muindi, Director of All Nations College, reported on his school and ITEM's impact in Thika, Kenya and beyond. This is some of what he had to say: With the help of ITEM, All Nations College in Kenya trains pastors and ministry leaders from different and diverse denominations. Most of these pastors enrolled for training have congregations in small towns and villages where economic life is extremely challenging. Many pastors who desire to attend classes can’t even raise $50 for class registration. Many survive on one meal a day. We have [...]

Jeannie Tabb: Atlanta • 12/30/19

There has been a lot happening and God is working. Each of the speakers in the South Asian track are from South Asia (India and Nepal) and they are relating very well. Last night 40 South Asian professionals from Atlanta came to have dinner and spend time with students. There was a panel of South Asian professionals who shared that they were Christ followers and they were more interested in having purpose in life and a job they loved than making money. And that families and relationships were a high priority. Students were asking how they made the decision to [...]

JOHN & KATHY LESONDAK: SLOVAKIA

Dear Friends, We have been much loved and have seen God’s kindness to us in numerous ways.  Last Sunday, after the service in Vitkovce, the Roma believers provided a wonderful farewell meal and showered us with gifts that included a winter coat; a dress; a home-made cookbook with personal letters; and the list goes on. Wednesday, we had a meal with our Indian friends here in Kosice and once again shared with them the wonder-filled facts of the gospel. It was with tears that they reluctantly departed. Our desire in sharing this with you now is to show you that [...]

Jacqueline Carrell: International Students, Inc. (Charlottesville)

During the week of August 19 - 24, several of us from Stony Point Church had the opportunity to welcome international students to UVA. We worked with Patrick Flynn, a missionary affiliated with International Students, Inc. who grew up at and is supported by SPC. In past years, Patrick, his family, and a couple of volunteers have handed out welcome bags to international students as they walked around the grounds the week before classes begin. These welcome bags are hand-sewn by a church in Roanoke and contain all sorts of goodies like food, notebook paper, pens, and a flyer on [...]

Pastor Silas Okello: Uganda 2019

As the SPC Uganda Mission Team was leaving Lira a little over a week ago, we learned about Truth Fountain's care for some of the widows who live in a nearby IDP (Internally Displaced People) Camp. Thanks (again) to the big-heartedness of one of our friends, we were able to leave a little money behind for the purchase of hoes and seeds for these ladies. Today, we received this report from our partners at Truth Fountain regarding their recent visit to the IDP Camp and ministry there. MB Calvary greetings to you in Christ Jesus! We would like to extend [...]

The school is now serving about 450 students. SPC is helping the school construct a fence around the school (a requirement for operating a school in the settlement). Several days after we left Kiryandongo, Pastor James sent this video to show us that construction was underway. MB
