Greetings from Oxford, Mississippi!
We continue to enjoy our time of Stateside Assignment here in Oxford, Mississippi. The hot humid days of August have transitioned into cool nights of September and everyone is anticipating a fantastic fall in Mississippi. Friends, Family, Football, and First Baptist Oxford have dominated our time so far and we're having a great time.
Thank you all for praying. Even while away from Oaxaca, we continue to hear how the Father continues to work and is calling out more of our Mexican brothers and sisters into his harvest fields. Here in Oxford, our sending church, First Baptist Oxford, continues to amaze us as they touch the world every day. Haylee is doing great at Mississippi College and Jackson is adjusting well at Oxford High School. Liesa is volunteering at a local school helping immigrant kids transition to school life in Mississippi. Jeff is helping out at First Baptist Oxford in various ways. So, life is busy but good!
We have some upcoming events that you can join with us to pray for:
- September 16-17: Jeff will be visiting the church planters in New Orleans working with the North American Mission Board. Pray for good connections and for some opportunities for these new churches to be involved with the work in southern Mexico.
- September 27 to October 5: Jeff will be a part of a meeting in Mexico of IMB personnel in the region to plan a prepare for future work in the Americas.
- October 7: Liesa will be speaking to the WMU at First Baptist Clinton, MS.
I want to invite all of you to an upcoming training event in Virginia. The dates are January 11 to 16, 2016. The event is called "Missions College" and is for anyone and everyone who are interested in joining in the work going on in Mexico. Click HERE to get more information and/or register. We'd love to see you there!
Thank you for all who are a part of our team as you pray. We are so grateful for your prayer support and your financial support through the Cooperative Program and the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering!
Jeff, Liesa, Haylee, and Jackson
