July 2013 Update
Jeff & Christie Lothamer (1998)
*Pray for a Gospel Community Member's neighbour named Anna that we will be ministering to this week by tidying her garden. This is a relationship that was prayed into being and now we will see what God will do.
*Pray for Jeff and I as we are battling constant discouragment as the work is very slow and hard. We are trusting God, but there are days when it is a real battle. We need our prayer warriors behind us. Pray for team unity, specific direction, open doors for the gospel, and fruit.
*Pray for Mission 2013, an outreach event we are hosting. We have a missions team from our supporting church in Ohio coming. This could be an opportunity for many to connect with the gospel. This is a week long event beginning July 27.
*We just finished up a 4 week basketball club at our kids school. That was a great opportunity to grow our respect in the community with parents and children alike. We are very grateful for this open door. There are many other sporting opportunites around the corner.
*We've been going through the book of Romans in our Gatherings and are learning, as a community, that Jesus is our righteousness and that changes everything!!
*As a ministry, we just graduated 1 student from our Degree Program as well as 2 Gap Year students. 2 are returning to the states, and one will stay on with us to do the degree herself. These students made an incredible difference for Christ in the UK this year.
*Another teenager called Kelsey committed her life to Christ this week. God is at work in the young people!
We recently celebrated Reign's 5th birthday with an online party. God raised over $25,000 during those days to help us complete our building. We celebrated each day by videos and live-streaming of events.
