Families, Mission Partners and Training!

This month we are asking you to pray for our growing staff and their growing families as well as lifting up the use of a video that we recently produced at ICOM (International Conference on Missions) and to give praises to the Lord for a successful recent mission trip to Uganda. 

The video we are sharing is a series of short interviews with missionaries from around the world speaking from their hearts on the impact of what you are doing right now in connecting with missionaries relationally.  When you pray for us and are interested in what we are doing for the Kingdom you are breathing life into our ministry and our families.  The other video we are sharing is an overview of the trip that our Africa Go Team Coach Steve Waggoner recently took to with a friend from his church to lead important discipleship training with leaders and students  involved with mission partners at Juna Amagara.  Thanks for praying and supporting our ministry.

Staff and Family Prayer

One of the greatest blessings these past few years has been the addition of new staff to help us accomplish our goals at Small World Connections and expand our opportunities to Connect a Timothy Culture in the Church.  After watching the ICOM video that we have included below it was challenging to remember how crucial it is that we also receive ongoing prayer for our families.  There are so many ways that the enemy wants to distract us and keep us from serving the Lord that we must be diligent and ask our friends to lift up our families for protection and blessing.  Here is a list of our staff families that are included in pictures above and we ask that you would pray for each picture and those included in the shot.  Thank you for your commitment to pray for the family of...

Uganda Mission Trip

Our Africa Go Team Coach Steve Waggoner and good friend Kyle Diekhoff went to Uganda (January 20-29) to encourage and equip a disciplemaking way of life with 250 teachers and student leaders  from the orphan sponsorship ministry of Juna Amagara (amagara.org). During a week long training conference called, "Jesus-like Disciplmaking Friendships " an intentional plan to multiply disciplemakers was developed for the ministry's six care points around the country. Please watch this short video overview of the trip and the impact it had in the lives who attended...




  Your prayer and support allows us to connect a Timothy Culture in the Church by:

  • Planning and facilitating experiences that help missionaries and expose people to their work
  • Encouraging and equipping leaders so that they can follow through on God's prompting to serve a specific ministry
  • Helping leaders recruit and train a team of people as needed to fulfill their vision for serving
  • Breaking down barriers that might keep people from following through on God's call to serve missions
