Go Spotlight:  Nathan and Naomi were previously serving in Central Asia, but last spring they had to return to the States after being evacuated due to threats of their safety. Nathan and Naomi are currently living in Santa Clarita, where they just enjoyed the birth of their third child. They are planning to leave again for the missions field in October of 2019, this time to South Asia, where they plan to continue their passion for church planting among unreached Muslim people groups. The Gappers' main goals in this next term will be build relationships through the practice of hospitality and to start evangelistic Bible studies with their target people group. They will be visiting us on Sunday, August 25, so please stop by their table in the lobby and hear about their ministry all God is doing in their lives!

Missionary Thank You: Today, we would love to thank and encourage our international missionaries for all they do. We would appreciate it if you would take the time to write to one of our missionaries by filling out the card in your bulletin. You can drop off the card in the offering box or at the table in the lobby. For more information on each of our partners, please also visit the table in our lobby. We will collect and make sure the cards get to our missionaries!
