That’s right! We are Missionaries at Large! While we are in the process of completing our Master of Arts Degrees in Biblical Counseling at The Master’s College in Santa Clarita, California, we are without a designated field of service.
Our first ministry was with Rod & Mary Huber in the Philippines. The location for this ministry spanned three islands: Mindanao, Luzon, and Cebu.
Last August, we had the privilege of representing OIC at the IABC (International Association of Biblical Counselors) National Bible Conference in Denver. God provided several appointments with interested leaders and biblical counselors in the Biblical Counseling Movement. The fruit from this type of event is not easily quantified, but providentially God’s economy is different than our own. We trust in Him and rejoice for the intangible fruit of strengthened relationships and that the tangible fruit of potential instructors will continue to surface.
Our next challenge was that of Missionary Training Conference Coordinators. Praise be to God for 27 people in attendance December 2015 at the 2nd annual OIC Missionary Training Conference in Houston. It was a wonderful time of fellowship with current and potential instructors. The Lord answered your prayers for safety and ease with the logistical preparations. We were blessed with two onsite liaisons, Steve and Judy Cranston, who helped to make it possible for the event to run smoothly. Even the electronic equipment was able to be setup with minimal problems. May God continue to press upon the hearts of those in attendance to serve Him through the ministry of OIC.
Our next ministry opportunity with OIC was scheduled to be with Don & Elizabeth Roy in the Netherlands and Germany in April of 2016. Instead, the Lord shifted our plans to assist with the OIC CLT programs in Amsterdam and Paris.
