2017 in Review and Poland

Dear Epaphras, Here is a short ministry update from 2017.  I know its a bit late, but we hope you'll appreciate and give glory to the Lord for all He did last year!  Second, we are highlighting Poland in a borrowed video from www.prayercast.com.  They do...

Margaret Luther’s Apple Pies are Delicious

Dear Epaphras, Tonight in Bayonne, France we have a special opportunity.  The Mayor of Bayonne has allowed us to use a public building for our theatrical outreach - not a small feat when you consider the anti evangelical bias of the government.  Did you know that...

Thanksgiving

Dear Epaphras, Now we turn towards Christmas.  This month as a family we are memorizing Psalm 23.  With the commercialization surrounding December 25th and the mad rush for getting and giving gifts to one another David's words in the opening verse are both convicting...

Praying for Mom and New Zealand

Dear Epaphras, I want to bring you up to speed on two important things so that you can pray.   First, thank you for praying for my (Steve’s) trip to New Zealand.  Our four days with PIONEERS International leadership team were packed with worship, intercession,...

Coming to America

Dear Epaphras, Our meetings in Hungary went really well. My team of eight area leaders and four CORE team members (pictured here) met and sought the Lord for four full days.  We sense the Lord asking us to continue investing in developing leaders across Europe - we...

That we would hear His voice

Dear Epaphras, "My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me..." John 10:27 John 10 is one of my favorite chapters in Scripture.  In it we learn first that we 'can' know Jesus' voice.  And second, we can know how and where he is leading so that we can...

standing room only

  Dear Epaphras, On Easter our service was standing room only as more than 70 tried to squeeze into our church.  It was a joyous problem to have!  The Resurrection was creatively presented in drama and for many people it was the first time they heard a biblical...

Orphaleena, a journey out of darkness

Dear Epaphras, Here is an excerpt from my (Sara’s) upcoming children’s book, Orphaleena : “There once was a child named Orphaleena. For as long as she could remember, she lived as an orphan down in the dungeon of a beautiful castle with a beautiful garden, but had...

The Jungle – outreach today

Dear Epaphras, Please intercede for a multi agency team who will be ministering in "the Jungle" (France's largest squat/refugee camp in Calais) this evening - Saturday, February 13th. There are about 5000 refuges living in very unsanitary and dangerous conditions. The...

Madrid, Lucy and more Baptisms

praising the Lord for His work in Lucy’s life

Dear Epaphras, We asked you to pray last week for Lucy K.  Monday she had a biopsy of the neuroblastoma to see how far the cancer has spread.  We asked you to pray for healing.  We asked you to pray for peace for mom, dad and sister too.  Sara and I were able to join...

A tough start to 2016

Dear Epaphras, Greetings in the Name of our Lord Jesus.  I (Steve) was reflecting last week on the healing of the paralytic in Luke 5 v 17 - 25.  It struck me that Jesus' words to the young man, 'pick up your mat and go home' were not really the point of the story....

Joyeux Noel

  Dear Friends, Christmas shopping in France is delightful as for some reason contemporary Christmas worship has made its way into every store and shopping mall in the country.  Yes, O come O come Emmanuel and He Shall Reign Forevermore have pushed aside Snoop Doggy...

blessed and thankful

Dear Epaphras, Gratitude fills our hearts as we daily experience the outpouring of your love, prayers and support.  France is in a 3 month state of emergency, but God is good! Each day brings new developments of possible terrorist threats, and the discovery of...

Praying for Paris

Dear Epaphras, I checked with our people in Paris and all are accounted for in the wake of last night's attacks.  We are all terribly saddened and shocked.  These attacks were different from January's attack on Charlie Hebdo, a notoriously satirical magazine.  Last...
