March 2012 Update

I remember a friend of mine who started a ministry from scratch telling me a few years ago that one day I would be plugging along trying to get the ministry off the ground and then all of a sudden realize that it was working and doing the things that I had set out to do. Well, he was right (as usual) and that did happen to me a few weeks ago. It does not mean that there are not new directions and plans God has for Small World Connections (SWC) down the road, but I did have an "aha" moment when I could finally see that God was shaping this ministry into exactly what He wants it to be.

This year alone is shaping into a year where we are looking to send or have sent GO Teams to Indonesia, Mexico, Uganda, Chillicothe IL and India as well as helped individuals follow through on their personal call to serve in Kenya and Philippines.

This Timothy Culture thing is taking many forms and helping people get outside the box to see how God might use them to serve His Kingdom:

  • Please pray now for our Indonesia team as they are in Indonesia with EFCA ReachGlobal from March 7-17 putting together plans for SWC to begin finding ways to further the ministry to Unreached People Groups in a country with little Gospel presence.
  • There are also openings on teams to Mexico and Uganda - if you are interested in going to serve in either of these places let me know as soon as possible.
  • I also have a big announcement that I wanted to share with our prayer partners first. As I mentioned last month we began looking into having Helping Hands Re-Sale Shoppe buy the building where we have the ministry store. Tomorrow night at the Chillicothe Chamber of Commerce Annual Banquet we will announce the beginning of our fund raising campaign to buy the building. That is right - no more paying rent and hopefully with God's blessing we are looking to eliminate even the cost of a mortgage. This will allow us to give more to the community and to missions efforts around the world. Below is the press release that we have put together with our ministry partners at the CrossWord Cafe to kick-off the fund raising drive in our community.

Thanks for your prayer and God Bless You All!
