2015 in Review

As 2015 comes to a close, here are a few highlights of our year. In ministry, we took a team to Uganda in May to plant churches in the southeast region and do some T4T training. The Gospel was proclaimed to about 250 people with close to 100 making professions of faith in Christ and 2 churches were planted.
Locally, we've been doing outreach with various churches or ministries in the Tulsa area. This summer, Mosaic Berean Church held a free eye glass clinic in partnership with Focus on Mission, an eye glass ministry based in Kansas City. Over 130 lives where touched thru free vision testing and prayer. 121 people received glasses and at the end of the testing we shared the Gospel...12 people professed Christ! Asbury UMC does an outreach on the 2nd Saturday of every month and Tony has been working to train their leaders who go to the various locations around the city. Asbury also has an annual Service Sunday. We partnered with them once again, to not only train a few of their members on the evangecube, but also went with them to a low-income apartment community to share the Gospel with the kids who came to the block party we held.
Tony held an 8 week T4T training class to train our entire church and we have begun outreach in the community. Three years ago, we started a Kids For Christ club at Arrowhead Elementary School and we can joyfully say, we have an average of 25-30 kids attend each Tuesday morning before school! Several of the children have learned the evangecube and have been sharing it with their friends as well as memorizing Scripture and the books of the Bible.
Personally, Tony finished his college career in May by receiving his Masters of Theology from Liberty Baptist Theological Seminary. On June 3, we celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary in Prague on our way home from Uganda.
Lisa traveled to Fort Wayne IN (her hometown)several times to visit her parents who have had various health complications throughout the year but are doing well as of now. In March, Lisa's 78 yr old father put his faith in Jesus! We've prayed for him, have shared the Gospel and answered numerous questions he had. He never went to church but after his profession he had the pastor from Lisa's sister's church come to their home and baptize him since he can't get around very well. This was by far the biggest praise and blessing of the year and an answer to many, many years of prayer!
In October 2014, our cat Oliver died and this October Dante died. Maya, Dante's littermate, is adjusting to life without him as are we since we adopted Dante and Maya when we first got married. The year ended with a trip to Ireland to celebrate Lisa's birthday.
We are looking forward to an exciting 2016!!! God Bless!!
