Steve and Lois, Serving with TEAM in Mexico

Steve and Lois, Serving with TEAM in Mexico

I have never run a marathon, and probably never will.  My sports tend towards cycling, SCUBA and kayaking,  and the idea of plodding along,  soaked in sweat and barely able to gasp enough air into desperate lungs has little, if any,  appeal to me.   However, based  on finish line videos we have seen we feel right now like we are in the last phase of a marathon. We are finishing up the support raising process, working to get the house ready to rent,  meeting with churches,  working on visas for Mexico, shipping our stuff to La Paz and discovering the uncountable details needing to be cared for prior to the move.   In this last paragraph you will discover a bunch of embedded prayer requests.

The Lausanne Movement conference on creation care. 100 scientists, theologians and practitioners met to discuss the role of the church and missions agencies in caring for God's creation.

While the move back is taking a lot of our time, we are both still active in our jobs as well.  I, Steve, just got back from an excellent conference on stewardship of the earth.  The conference was sponsored by the Lausanne Movement and TEAM was given two of the 100 available slots.  If creation care (environmental missions) interests you, send me an email – I’d love to discuss this topic with you.

Lois and a neighbor across the street organized a really fun block party attended by nearly 50 people.

Another highlight was a block party Lois and a neighbor across the street organized.  The successful party was an attempt to get our neighbors to know each other.  It was a delightful time.  It was an encouragement to us to see our neighbors talking, mingling and getting acquainted.

IMMEDIATE NEXT STEPS

Our current plans call for us to move into the TEAM apartments in Carol Stream, IL on September 1 and to leave for Mexico on October 1.  On August 20 we will be holding an open house at TEAM’s missions place in Wheaton.  We would love to have you drop by for a visit.  This will be informative and will be a means of presenting to everyone what our work is and as a means of saying “Thank You” to a lot of wonderful people.

If you are a financial supporter of ours who sends your contributions by snail mail, please be advised that TEAM’s contributions office has relocated to Texas.  The new address for mailing contributions can be found below.  If you use the electronic payment methods nothing changes  (click on link  below).

We are very grateful to all of you who make our work in TEAM possible.  We are honored to be your missionaries working in Mexico. Thank you

Steve is a career missionary with TEAM. TEAM is a faith based, international, non-profit, humanitarian organization dedicated to making life better for everyone now and in the future. We do this by creating sustainable and reproducing gatherings of Jesus followers who understand that as long as they are here they have the privilege of serving Jesus by serving their neighbors and by teaching them spiritual truths found in the Bible. Steve is a SCUBA diver, sea kayaker and an avid cyclist. Meeting with followers of Jesus every week is a number one priority for him. Making the world a better place by obeying Jesus is what energizes him.
