Partners and Friends,
Welcome to a new year! We hope that your Christmas went well and that you are ready to begin a new adventurous year in Christ during 2020. For those that joined us recently, we want to welcome you to the team. We are people from all walks of life working together to impact the nations for Christ! Some sow, some send, some pray, and some go. We are believing for 1,000,000 souls, 1,000 church plants, and 100 church builds. Our target is drawing near. Recently, we just passed the 900,000 mark concerning the souls who have made decisions for Christ! We have also seen over 800 house churches begin with discipleship groups planted, and 54 churches built. Thank-you for making that possible as we march forward!
This year we have four open mission trips. Two of the trips are to a closed nation. One is scheduled at the end of this month and the second is planned for late August/early September.
The other two mission trips will be to Appalachia and Iceland. The trip to Appalachia (West Virginia) is planned for June 21st – 26th. The cost for that trip will be $600. The trip to Iceland is scheduled for July 13th – 22nd ish. The estimated cost is $2,200. For those who are interested, an optional excursion is being planned at the end of the trip that includes an overnight stay near a national park, hiking a glacier, and taking a boat ride to view icebergs. The estimated cost for the excursion is about $400 to $500, food expense not included.
Please pray for us as we travel at the end of this month to the closed nation, pray for traveling mercies and favor. It is needed. Also pray for wisdom as we work with the Presbyters and local pastors regarding the need to add new aspects to our follow-up.
Thank-you and may God’s richest blessings rest upon you during 2020,
Will and Cristen Bridges
