We just wrapped up our six-moth home assignment yesterday. It was great to be with family and friends in the USA! One of the most significant developments during our time at home was the addition of Kevin and Jan Rutledge to our MTW Czech Republic team.
Our Czech partners had asked us last year to work on recruiting additional team members, so we made plans how we would go about looking for them during our time in the States. God brought Kevin and Jan to us in a completely different way than anything we had planned, so it would be obvious he should get the praise for adding to our team.
The Rutledges have served as missionaries for over 20 years, including an assignment in the Czech Republic in the 1990s. They also spent time in the Middle East and Seoul, Korea. We are very happy that the Lord has sent them to us.
Last month, the Committee on Mission to the World approved Kevin and Jan as MTW missionaries; so, they are in the process of fundraising and are available to speak in missions conferences, share their story in church services, and meet with anyone who is interested in hearing about their work. If you would like to contact them, please write to them at the following email address: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to donate to them online, please use THIS link and designate your gift to account #16703.
Blessings on you,
Johnny and Annette
