“How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher?” Romans 10:14

On December 2, 2018, through the leadership of Pastor Dan Prewitt, the First Baptist Church of Mayville, NY officially became our “sending church”. Why is this significant you may wonder? Having a sending church means we are an extension of this body of believers, wherever we may go. They have committed to pray for us, share their talents, and come alongside us through the trials and triumphs of the ministry. We thank Pastor Dan and the Church, where Sonja has been a member since 1989.

On the Move

As many of you know, Sonja has been the Finance Manager at International Gospel Missions in Rochester, NY since 2015. After much prayer, we decided it was time to step down from this position, to allow more time for ministry. Once we took this step of faith, God answered our prayer quickly, and a new Finance Manager was hired on December 1st. Pray for Holly Baltich as she takes on this new role.

We packed up our belongings, and moved to Dewittville, NY to be closer to family during this time of transition. We are excited about this new chapter, as it will allow us to be more involved in our sending church. We will also be able to visit churches within a greater distance.

Wishing you all a very blessed Christmas season as we celebrate the birth of our Savior. We also pray for God’s continued blessing in the New Year for each of you. Thank you for your prayers, friendships, and partnerships in the ministry in Togo!
