CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF FIRE INTERNATIONAL!! Last month we had the joy of celebrating the milestone of 20 years of sending missionaries to the nations through FIRE International!! What a privilege to serve the Lord in this way. At our 20th annual Missions Conference we were excited to have 66 missionaries in town for the event. We felt that the Lord wanted us to use Legacy as our theme this year. It was amazing looking back at the last 20 years to see all that the Lord has done through our missionaries. So many of them were babies when they went out and now….WOW!! What the Lord has done is overwhelming.
But the focus is not only what that Lord HAS done, but also, what He WILL be doing through all of us in the future. This was not just a trip down nostalgia lane, but a time to build our faith that if God has done all this, there are no limits for the next 20!! We want to be sure to leave a strong legacy of faith in a powerful and real God to the next generation. In order to do that we must walk in that power and reality today. Our missionaries are doing that! Whether they have a Bible School, a church, an orphanage, an outreach ministry, or some other unique way of showing people His glory, the reality of God’s love and willingness to impact lives is being lived out. And we get to have a part of that!!! What joy!!
Of course, in addition to celebrating 20 years, Josh also did an amazing job of raising funds. The Lord again released the gift of Giving and we received more faith promises than last year. God is so good!!! We are amazed each year by what God’s people promise to give to our missionaries.
TRAVELING TO INDIA ON THANKSGIVING DAY!! Our Thanksgiving will be a little different this year as we will be boarding a plane to fly to India!!! We have three cities and three ministries to visit. We will be gone a full two weeks and it will be quite the trip!! Please pray for us for traveling grace as well as the words to speak and the wisdom to minister to and encourage our missionaries there. We will be home on December 12.
We are most thankful for you, our precious partners. Without you we truly could not do all we do. Thank you for your love, for your faithfulness, and for your prayers. One day we will be in heaven and you will see what has been accomplished for the Kingdom of God because you stood behind us in your prayers and giving. We are truly blessed to have you as a part in our lives.
Love in Jesus,
Josh & Tobi
