Introducing Madeline

Dear Friends,

Madeline (on the left) and a Czech friend
For the past four years we have been blessed to host Madeline Edwards as a summer intern. Now, God is calling her to a longer term of service with our team and we need your help. Please take a moment and read her support letter at the nearby tab. Please consider if the Lord would have you support Madeline during her one to two year internship. She needs to raise $13,500 in one-time gifts and $3,500 in monthly support before she can depart. 

If you are willing to consider supporting Madeline, please click the highlighted link on the right, under “Support Madeline”, and follow the instructions at MTW’s website.
If you have questions or please email us at

Thank you!

Johnny and Annette

Planning Retreat 2018

We spent three days planning and praying last week with the leaders from our little church in Zlin. The Lord blessed our time together and guided as we tried to look toward the future.  

We met in the mountains near the Slovak border. As you can see from the pictures, it is a gorgeous part of the country.

Our Second Wedding

No, Annette and I have not been re-married.  But, we were invited to attend another Czech wedding earlier this month - the second one in our eight years here. Klárka, daughter of our dear friends Mirek and Radka was wed to Pavlík in a beautiful outdoor ceremony. René officiated, and during his message wove a beautiful story of how Klárka had grown up under the watchful eye of her parents and her congregation; when Pavlík first appeared on the scene, we were all concerned about whether he would be the right one for our dear little sister, Klárka. In God’s providence, Pavlík turned out to be her Prince Charming and now they are happily married. It was a privilege and a joy to be there to witness their vows.
