Dear family and friends, 

I’m excited to tell you about an amazing opportunity I have to minister to persecuted Christians in the Middle East. I will be serving with a group of incredible people at Living Stones International. This ministry was founded to help those who are persecuted for their faith in other countries. In March, I will be heading out to meet with and encourage some of our partners in the Middle East. These partners are people who are in danger of persecution if they are found to be believers. Their commitment to Jesus so often supersedes their comfort and safety. We hope to encourage these wonderful people as we listen to their stories and hear how God is working in their lives and communities.

I’m asking that you partner with me first in prayer. The main purpose of Living Stones International is to pray for the persecuted and encourage them. That is what they always ask for. So I ask that you partner with us in prayer not only for this trip and God’s will but for their strength and protection as they live out their faith and witness to others. Although we hope to encourage them, I am sure we will be blessed and humbled as we witness their deep and steadfast faith. 


Please pray that God’s mission will be fulfilled as we minister to persecuted Christians, and that He would lead us where He would like us to go. Please also pray for protection, good health, and safe travels. We also ask for prayers of protection against spiritual warfare and for unity among our team members.

If you feel led to do so, please also consider partnering with us in the finances of the trip. Including airfare, hotels, transportation, and food, the trip will cost around $5,000 per person. I am certain and excited to see how God will provide!
