Mike At Grace Church In Utah

On Sunday Mike was at Grace Church in Layton, UT. Mike shared about missions during service and with individuals during fellowship time after church. During the fellowship time, Mike had several wonderful conversations with individuals and small groups.

Grace Church has been very supportive of our ministry over the years and is very excited to be part of the new efforts to raise up and train more missionaries from the West. Pastor Tim and the rest of the leadership were wonderful and receptive. Pastor Tim prayed over Mike and our ministry during service.

It was an incredible joy to share our vision for missions with Grace Church.

Utah Church Tour Part IV

We just concluded our four day trip through Utah. While we were there we shared our plans for Honduras with members of PCA church plants.
The Bonneville Salt Flats in UtahThis was a very fruitful trip. We had plenty of time to share God’s plan for us in Honduras with dozens of individuals. While in Utah we were able to sit down and have three relaxing meals with large groups of people. This allowed us to share one-on-one with numerous people.
On Sunday Mike preached at Grace Church in Layton, UT. After service we received 16 new prayer partners and a couple new financial supporters. In addition, Grace Church agreed to support us financially and through prayer. We received much positive feedback and many commitments for prayer.
Anthony Thomas, the Executive Director, of Mission Utah expressed a great interest in our work in Honduras. He expressed a desire to see more support for our work from the five Utah-based, PCA churches. Pastor Krafft of Grace church and Pastor Barton of Jordan Presbyterian have each expressed great interest in supporting Team Honduras.
We are so pleased God introduced us to these brothers and sisters in Utah. They were all truly a blessing to us. It was exciting to familiarize ourselves with the work they are doing on the mission field of Utah.
While this was a brief trip, it was very God honoring. We would like to extend a huge thanks to Pastor Krafft for organizing everything for us and making our life easy. We would also like to thank the Littles for putting us up in their home, carting us around, feeding us, and laughing with us. Thanks to the Littles and the Kraffts for their Christ honoring selflessness and love.
