Dear Ministry Friend,

Thank you for your partnership with us in doing the work God has called us to do. Exciting things are always happening and we are happy to share the latest and greatest with you.

PEF Conference report -
Here we are at our official commissioning service as Missionaries to Parents. Our Mission staff worked hard to refuel us with amazing speakers and opportunities to meet other members who are called to the mission field both in the USA and overseas. We are filled and even more ready to serve.
Our latest podcast link: Feel free to subscribe to our weekly podcast and share with parents who may be raising a child with any kind of challenges. Click on the following link to go to our Podcast page:

Testimony:  "Thank you!  The kids and I had a great day, and I think some of that was due to our conversation this morning."  Mom of a 7 year old son and 5 year old daughter.
Our new neighbors:

You know you live in the country when 1) your cow neighbor right across the country road out front wakes you up at 6:15 am with a loud and animated conversation with your car in the driveway, and 2) there's a man on  horseback in the pasture just past your back fence. We are loving our country home.
Project thinking: We are excited about putting together some training workshops for Children's Ministry Volunteers.
New Request for us to Speak! We were contacted this week by a regional Awana director asking if we would be interested in doing some workshops at conferences in Virginia in September and October!
Prayer Requests:
Please pray for more opportunities to speak to:
  • Bible Study Groups, Adult Sunday School Groups, and Life Groups to invite folks to partner with us in this important ministry.
  • Parent Groups so that we may bring hope and help through encouragement and strategies to moms and dads raising children who have special needs. 
Please continue to pray for the writing of our book. We want to reach parents with hope and help!
Thank you for:
  • Your prayer support! We know that our God encourages us and hears us as we pray!
  • Your financial giving. As we begin to approach the end of the year, you may be considering year-end giving. Would you prayerfully consider supporting our ministry with a year-end gift?
On behalf of the families who will be blessed by God's work and your part in it, thank you!
Tom, Julie, and Amy Meekins
