Most sundays, we have the opportunity to hear from one of our missionaries and you’ll find those videos here as well as other videos we have had the opportunity to make about them. Please keep our Missionaries in your prayers and support. You can click on any of the missionary’s pictures to the left and find out more about them!
For 26 years, Tim & Sherry served as Awana Leaders, Directors, Commanders, and Ministry Team Members when in the summer of 2004, they were asked to be the volunteer, interim missionaries for central Florida when the missionary resigned. During that year, they saw God leading them into full-time service as Awana missionaries. They were accepted as missionaries in 2005 and began serving in southern Wisconsin in 2006.
In addition to serving as missionaries with Awana, Sherry teaches full time at a small Christian school, and both Tim and Sherry are very involved in the ministries of their church in Watertown, WI. Tim and Sherry also enjoy spending time with family – especially their grandchildren – whenever possible.
Brian & Barbara Thompson assist United World Mission (UWM) missionaries and their partners throughout Europe, producing video and print materials that help the local church in evangelism, discipleship, leadership development, and outreach.
New this year, the Thompsons are joining UWM’s global expansion team to help with efforts to build up the multi-cultural churches of Europe, which are emerging in part as a response to the recent unprecedented migration of Middle Easterners to Europe. The Lord is opening many previously closed doors, all glory to Him!
When they’re not producing videos, you’ll find the Thompsons engaging their neighbors, teaching an English club, or serving at the International Christian School of Budapest, where their youngest daughter, Sarah, is a junior in high school. Their oldest daughter, Chloe, is a sophomore at Taylor University.
Pray that we:
• Love others well!
• Intentionally seek the Lord and grow in our knowledge of God
through prayer, spiritual formation and fellowship.
• Faithfully serve our fellow missionaries and ministry partners with
creative ideas that lead to fruit for the Kingdom.
• Have perseverance and strength in sharing the gospel!

Missionary of the Week
The InterVarsity chapter at UW-Whitewater has been growing! In early September, we launched a record number of small group Bible studies. We now have 16 student-led small group Bible studies meeting in residence halls across campus! In addition, we have three small groups reaching non-residence hall corners of campus. While our Asian American InterVarsity small group remains strong, we have launched a Black Campus Ministry small group for the first time! We also launched a small group for commuters for the first time since I was a student. Our vision is to reach even more corners of campus by launching more small group Bible studies. In the next few weeks, leaders will begin developing new students as apprentices. At the end of the month we will be attending our regional fall conference, called Cross Training, where students will receive training on how to live out their faith on campus. Would you please join us in praying for God-given vision to reach new places at UW-Whitewater?
Please pray for:
• New students to continue to connect to our small group
• Student leaders as they develop their small groups
• Students to grow in vision for reaching new corners of
This week we welcomed “home” Kris Driscoll, as she comes and shared during Mission Moments. Fulton was Kris’ sending church back in 1998, when she left her career as Food Service Director for Marriot Corp. in Stoughton and Janesville Schools, and spent 9 1⁄2 years in mission work in Honduras. In 2007, she returned to the U.S. (Pharr, TX, on the border with Mexico in Deep South Texas) to help care for her elderly parent’s needs. She was provided the opportunity to continue to serve as a missionary in the U.S. with the EFCA Hispanic Ministries with an expanded role to include helping administrate the Immigrant Mission and GATEWAY Theological Institute. She works from her home office via a virtual office and travels usually once a month to Minneapolis and/or other sites in the U.S. She also visits Honduras once a year to continue to support the ministries there.
