Brian & Debbie McIntyre
James 1:27 explains that real worship is "to visit orphans and widows in their affliction."
We have established House of Mercy (HOMe), a Children's Hospice/Home in Accra, Ghana. It is our plan to develop our 1½ acre property into a permanent facility for our children's hospice/home and to move them from our current leased facility.
Our first church plant is in Nsawam and is led by Pastor Paul Adin. This church has already seen tremendous results as they have committed to preaching and practicing God's gospel of grace and mercy in their community. It is our prayer that we will be able to start another church in the coming year. Only By the Mercies of God.
Beauty for Ashes, the Musser Family
Matt and Emily met during training at the New Tribes Bible Institute (now Ethnos360). After they married they moved to the island of Java in Indonesia and began studying the language. They then moved to the region of Papua.
They spent their first 2 years in an interior town called Wamena where they ran a small guest house and bought supplies for the interior missionaries. During this time they formed a team with two other families. In January of 2010, they moved into the Kora valley to work among the Kora people. In October the Kora church was born.
The Mussers are now on their next journey in the town of Sentani. Matt joined the Papua Area Committee (PAC) which oversees around 50 missionary families. There are many needs - member care, survey trips into new areas, strategy planning for their region, administrative oversight, etc. They are hoping to open 4 new tribal groups in the coming year.

The Starting Point Project
Speaker: Jay Seegert
The primary focus of The Starting Point Project is to help strengthen the Christian’s faith, so they are more confident in what they believe and consequently better positioned to share the Gospel message with anyone who lacks a true saving relationship with Christ.
Secondarily, a very gracious challenge is given to the skeptic who sincerely struggles with knowing and understanding the truths as taught in God’s Word.

Christian Towns Destroyed by Local Muslims
About 60,000 Christians in the southeastern Central African Republic (CAR) have been forced to flee their towns after a series of attacks by local Muslims. Several months after joint U.S. and Ugandan forces pulled out of the region last year, area Muslims launched a campaign to drive Christians out by razing Christian-majority towns and villages. On Nov. 20, villagers in Dembia were awakened by gunfire at 4 a.m. as local Muslims attacked without warning. The Christians ran from their village in a heavy downpour, wearing only the clothes in which they were sleeping, and took cover in the bush. Their village was completely destroyed over the next three days. During the attack, the village elderly were reportedly gathered in a building and burned alive. Although the total number of killed is unknown, since villagers dispersed and have been unable to return, one believer who survived the attack knew of at least 46 people who were killed. The Christian towns that were attacked have either been destroyed completely or remain under the control of local Muslims and jihadist allies. Pray that these Christians will be able to return to their villages.
The Timothy Initiative
DISCIPLES MAKING DISCIPLES to advance God's kingdom by multiplying disciples and disciple-making churches around the world.
“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses, commit to faithful men who will be able to teach others.” 2 Timothy 2:2
TTI (The Timothy Initiative) is an international church planting organization with the purpose to train and equip “Timothys" (Pastors / Church Planters). They specifically target church planters lacking the means and/or availability to receive a balanced Biblical and theological training throughout Asia, Africa, and the Americas. Each church planter trained is expected to multiply and reproduce churches in their region.
April 2018 - Some of our church planters were affected by a recent attack by Islamic radicals. Their homes were burned to the ground, and many were forced to flee. Please pray that the Lord would comfort, protect and provide for all of their needs. Pray for continued boldness to spread the Good News in the midst of persecution.
