On May 29, 2014 we officially graduated from The Center for Pioneer Church Planting at To Every Tribe! During "Graduation Week" we had the opportunity to share what these past 2 years have meant to us. We thank the Lord for all He has done in our lives over the last 2 years and also thank each of you who faithfully pray for us, financially support us and have loved and encouraged us throughout this journey.
Pray for the Graduates
Pictured above is our graduating class! Please pray for all our fellow graduates as we will be spread out all over the US and the world taking the gospel to the nations. Some of them are going to Canada, South Asia, Mexico, Papua New Guinea and some will remain in the US serving as the Lord directs.
We are excited to share with you that the Lord has opened a door of opportunity for us to continue His mission right here in Los Fresnos. I (David) have been called as the Student Minister of First Baptist Church of Los Fresnos and will begin August 1. Our desire is to continue serving God faithfully where He has placed us and we are excited to reach students and their families here in the Rio Grande Valley with the gospel message of Jesus Christ. We also plan to continue our language acquisition and further our Spanish language communication and I will also continue education toward a seminary degree.
As of July 31st, we will no longer be able to receive support through To Every Tribe since we have graduated from The Center for Pioneer Church Planting. First Baptist Church has graciously offered us $1,700 a month in salary and also are allowing us to remain in the church's missionary housing. Our monthly budget is $2,500 so we will still have a need of $800 a month.
If you would like to continue to help support our family, you may begin sending your funds to the following address:
First Baptist Church of Los Fresnos RE: David & Gretta Johns 300 E. Ocean Blvd. Los Fresnos, TX 78566
We thank each of you for your continued partnership in our mission work and for keeping us lifted up to the Lord in prayers.
"Go where you're sent. Stay where you're put. Give what you've got."
