We are glad to now be beginning our new assignment with Network 211 full-time!  Michael is getting to know his co-workers and starting on the ministry projects.  Recently, Michael has been working on a website that facilitates discipleship connections with people in Asia and other regions. Our Chinese visitors need to be able to easily converse with mentors and receive spiritual support and encouragement. This online communication platform allows us to help hurting and spiritually hungry individuals to receive help.

Our family is getting settled since our move this summer. The girls are making new friends at elementary school and joining in their friend’s birthday parties already. The home we bought has some repair needs which is delaying us from feeling quite settled. But we trust God will help us overcome these issues.

We want to minister to people both here in Springfield, MO, and abroad. Michael will be making overseas trips and we are daily involved in ministry reaching people through the Internet, no matter what country they live in. But we also see needs locally, especially with a significant homeless population.

Our ministry team at Network 211 is great. God has called individuals who are gifted in language, computers, media, filming, writing and more. Please pray with us that we will have more Chinese, Japanese, Korean and Arabic speakers join with us in ministry.

Network 211 is also launching a site this month called “The Warrior’s Journey.” (https://thewarriorsjourney.org). It is designed to minister to the spiritual needs of the military.

Thank you so much! We appreciate you taking the time to read our news and pray with us. Thank you for your partnership, whether in prayer or giving. May God bless you richly!


Michael, Laura, Emily & Elly
