We are honored to partner in both prayer and financial support with several missionaries serving around the globe. Part of our worship service each week includes specific prayer for these families and their work. We have had the joy of hearing most of them share about their ministry in visits to Hope Chapel over the past several years, and have been able to send 3 teams to serve with the Gilroys in Costa Rica.
Steve and Elizabeth Gilroy serve with Face of Justice Ministries in San José, Costa Rica. They work to see the commercialization of men, women and children stopped in Costa Rica through intervention, prevention, and restoration.
Jonas and Christina (along with their kids, Maggie, Keith, and Judah), serve with Mission to the World. They are preparing to move to Tokyo, Japan, where they will be working with a group called Community Arts, seeking to build community through the arts, encourage Japanese believers in their faith, and to enable Japanese Christians to redeem and transform their culture through the Gospel.
David and Rachel (and their kids) serve with Pioneers in Chad, working to initiate a church planting movement among the Tama people. In this nominally Muslim culture, they are sharing the Gospel in the native language, Tama, which is an exclusively oral language.
Hellen and Ellis serve with Teach Beyond, working to open schools in five African countries so that war-time conflict does not totally disrupt transformational education in the Francophone region. They are based in Central African Republic (located in central Africa).
Good Shepherd's Fold
Part of Global Outreach International, Good Shepherd’s Fold was established in 1994 with the purpose and primary vision of evangelizing the orphan and destitute children of Uganda with the good news of Christ, while also providing for their physical, spiritual, educational and medical needs.
