On the move

Image
Well, we are settled in Houston. The move from Tulsa went very smoothly as even our cat, Munchie, has adjusted well. Although it was difficult saying good-bye to friends and family, we know that God has wonderful things for us here in Texas and we look forward to continuing the work that He called us to so many years ago. With that said, we decided to hit the ground running and have already met with NPLHouston and church planting team members; we're looking forward to working alongside them to reach Houston for Christ. Houston is the 4th largest city in the nation and with the economy booming, an average of 200+ people move into the area every day! Also, Houston ranks highly in being on of the most ethnically diverse city in the country. There is so much opportunity here to reach the world by just stepping out our front door.

Return from Ireland and Exciting News!

Image
Twelve years ago, we came on staff with e3 Partners! In that time, we have shared the Gospel, planted churches, trained disciples and help start an orphanage while working in countries like Egypt, Ethiopia, Syria, Jordan, India, Nepal, Peru and Uganda. And of course, our recent work in Ireland as well as being part of the NoPlaceLeft network to reach Tulsa OK for Christ.  Being part of the e3 family is an amazing blessing for us! Every now and again, we comment to each other that this ministry is pretty much all we've known as a married couple. On June 3, we celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary and if you include the several mission trips we did prior to e3 in 2004 & 2005...well, it really is what we've dedicated our lives and marriage to.  As we continue to serve Ireland with e3, God has opened another exciting door for us with Cypress Bible Church in Cypress (Houston) Texas where Tony has accepted a position as Outreach and Missions Pastor. Cypress Bible is a wonderfu…

Springing Into Action! A few weeks ago, we had a  time change. We are ready for spring, nice weather and the continued advance of God's Kingdom as we serve in Tulsa and Ireland.  Here are some highlights for the first quarter of 2018.
The Tulsa NoPlaceLeft network put on a Four Fields Intensive Training, hosted by Cedar Ridge Christian Church.  The NoPlaceLeft network is growing and making an impact across the Tulsa Metro area.  Tony was privileged to be able to play a small roll in the training there.On Feb. 23-24 we lead a training at St. Nicholas Church in Dundalk, Co. Louth Ireland.  The first day training was for leaders and the second for the church to learn how to reach their community for Christ.  Several church members came from other areas who will take this training back with them to other counties.There are huge opportunities to impact the Kingdom in the Hispanic communities across the US and Tulsa is no exception.  We've had the opportunity to cast vision with sev…

Missions Vision Message in Lisburn N. Ireland 10-22-17

Giving Thanks! 2017

Image
Finding words to describe 2017 is almost impossible for us. Things have progressed so quickly, so amazingly, that many times throughout the last twelve months we have found ourselves utterly speechless before God. Churches in Ireland are catching a vision for reaching their homeland, discipleship training is continually taking place, many churches/ministries here in Tulsa are uniting to reach our city and state. Our e3 Team Ireland has grown to include eight North American field staff and the members of our mission teams are falling in love with Ireland and having their hearts broken for its spiritual state, just like we knew they would! We also celebrated our 15th wedding anniversary in June by spending a couple days in Venice, Italy after our May trip.

We want to thank all of you who continue to partner with us through your praying, going and giving; we could not do this without you...we truly are grateful for your partnership. It is not too late to make a year end donation or to b…

How Do You Eat an Elephant

How Do You Eat an Elephant?
One Bite at a Time!
(No Elephants were harmed in the writing of this newsletter) e3's strategy for Ireland is '32 by 32' and while this seems like an impossible task, we know that God is able to accomplish it. We've just returned from our latest expedition, serving with the Transformation Center, a church in Lisburn, N. Ireland, and we feel like we have taken another bite out of this elephant-sized vision. God assembled 16 amazing people to produce our largest and most diverse team we've had the privilege of leading.

Time well spent...
The team was blessed to worship with the Transformation Center on Sunday morning and held a training for the church that evening, Monday through Friday we went out into the harvest (going into the community to share the gospel), serving in the local Lisburn area and also went back to the Twinbrook community in W. Belfast (an area that not many ministries are willing to go to because of their troubled past).  …
