|MARK AND JILL BILLINGTON
|Mark and Jill will be reporting on their Quebec church planting ministry in Life Groups at WBC next Sunday (7/16). With ABWE colleagues, they planted Credo Baptist Church some 10 or more years ago. The church recently voted to call its first local pastor, a Credo member, trained for leadership by Mark and his ABWE teammate. Billingtons are now praying about planting a daughter church and have been working on their vision with interested Credo members for a ‘missional community’, a community gathering place
where Christians offer practical services to the neighborhood as a demonstration of Christ’s love. They have their eye on a densely populated neighborhood of immigrants and will be sharing on the progress of this ministry on Sunday.
|MICHAEL AND KATRINA GEURINK
|Geurinks have served in a variety of ministries in the province of Amazonas for almost 20 years. They’ve been in camp ministry, church planting and developing among the Ticuna, airplane outreach to unreached
tribal groups and, latterly, organizing the translation of Scripture into the languages of unreached tribal groups in cooperation with Wycliffe Bible Translators. Now they are stepping back from ministry on the Amazon to spend several years stateside. Their four children were adopted in Brazil and the two oldest are reaching college age. Michael and Katrina want, with our prayer support, to concentrate on this phase of their parenting responsibilities. Ask God to keep them trusting in his guidance and to find new avenues of service during their ‘missionary associate’ period.
