The MTW training of new missionaries is underway in Brussels, Belgium. Many of the new missionaries arrived late due to travel complications, but the CCMI training began on Monday as planned.
Mike will coach and mentor John Theoharis serving in Tanzania, Charles and Riki Scarborough serving in Peru and Jim and Karen.
Erin will coach and mentor Bert and Cheryl Barber serving in Colombia and Cindy and Todd Sproull serving with Native Americans on the Lummi reservation in Washington.
In addition Mike and Erin will be working with the other missionaries on service teams and field ministry groups. Mike will shepherd a team serving in Administration (technology, setup, copies, etc.) and Erin will guide a team serving in Communication (internal weekly newsletter, communication board, pictures, etc.).
Mike will work with other new missionaries by attending and serving the Iranian Church of Brussels. Erin will be working with new missionaries at the St. Andrews Church of Scotland in Brussels.
We will keep you informed of how things are going. Please keep praying we can mentor and serve these new missionaries well.
