What's been going on...

Ministry -

The first two months of this year have been quite a whirlwind! Not only have we made the transition on to e3 Europe team, but we have hit the ground running with training, planning for and learning about the ministry in Europe, networking and local outreach.  Cedar Ridge Christian Church hosted a Level 1 & 2 T4T training in late January. This was part of an initiative in cooperation with multiple denominations across the city to launch No Place Left Tulsa.  Tony was part of the swarm training (the name they use when there are multiple teachers) and there were approximately 250 people in attendance. One of the neatest things about these training sessions, is actually going out into the harvest and sharing the Gospel!

In late January, Tony attended the Mid-Level T4T training in Stuart Florida. This was also an opportunity for him to meet Bill Payton, the e3 Europe Team Leader, and several others from the e3 Europe Team. Each evening the attendees went out into the harvest and during that week, 119 homes heard the Gospel, 60 homes opened up to have in-home Bible Studies, and 19 souls professed faith in Christ!!  PRAISE JESUS!!

We've also been busy making, and speaking with, contacts in Ireland that are doing outreach and are interested in meeting with us when we take the vision trip the first week of May. Please be in prayer for all the logistics of that and certainly, for open doors. It's all coming together and we will absolutely let you all know how it all went...we truly appreciate your prayers.

Personal -

One of the many reasons we love Tulsa is the abundance of art and music. For those of you who may not know, Lisa volunteers as a Docent at the Philbrook Museum of Art. She went with a group from Philbrook to the Sherwin Miller Museum of Jewish Art to see an exhibition on the power of German Propaganda during WWII from the US Holocaust Memorial Museum...to say it was a moving exhibition is an understatement.

We also saw a small, private exhibition at First Presbyterian Church Tulsa that was a collection of art based completely on the Parable of the Prodigal Son in Luke 15. It was amazing to see so many different artistic views on this beloved story.

This month, we also lost our cat Maya. She had been a diabetic for 8 years and with the loss of her litter mate Dante last October, her health quickly deteriorated. We've always felt like our cats were such a blessing from God...what joy they gave us!!  After having them for 14 years, our home is extremely quiet.

Thank you all so much for your prayers and partnership in ministry!
