Taiwan: Chris & Jamie O'Dell
Praise God...We are halfway through the summer, and already so many teams and interns have come through our site! The most recent team made some major kingdom impact. They led a training on how to lead a Bible study, and hosted a worship night.

Pray...
Our sales per day goalat Aromais $14,000. Currently, we are averaging just below $10,000 per day. Please pray with us as we work to implement new procedures, products, and events that will help us boost sales in the coming months!

Burkina Faso: John & Betty Arnold
Praise God...Weare so thankful God allows us to join Him in all He is doing with the handicap ministry. He continues to show off by doing things beyond what we could imagine. Last week our CrossPoint City team distributed 3 handicap bikes and celebrated with us as people gave their lives to Christ!

Pray for...strength and endurance as John and Betty continue to host and lead summer teams and interns.
Costa Rica: Chuck & Robbi Fanberg
Please pray for...Chuck and the rest of the Fanbergfamily as they mourn the loss of their precious Robbi. Robbi passed away on July 11th.

Chuck has written to us to let us know of Robbi's passing and says "While we take consolation in knowing that she is now in the joyful presence of our Lord, the emptiness of her absence from us is becoming painfully real.Robbi's absence from us leaves a huge hole in our hearts but we rejoice that she is now in the presence of our Lord Jesus and has experienced fully what it means that 'Jesus took up our pain and bore our suffering.'"
Taiwan Intern: Michael Gerber

Praise God He is continuing to use me here in Taiwan. I feel a surge of the Holy Spirit every time I build relationships with Taiwanese or other students whom I don't know very well.
Pray for My good friend and roommate Lucas is getting married in Thailand in under 4 months. Pray for him and his marriage to Gale, but also for our home as we begin the process of finding a new roommate.
Your Prayers Make a Difference!
