A family who serves in the Middle East was in the office this past month. Our Missionary Kid Ministry needed extra hands taking care of the kids one day while their parents were in meetings and asked me to help. Love kids? You could help too! Ask me how.

Facebook Connects Single Missionaries! Being single has its challenges. Being a single missionary has even more, especially if you work in another country. There is a lot out there for couples and families, but the singles are left to figure out things on our own. Last month I decided to start a Facebook group called the Single “M” Network.
people meet, fall in love, and marry because of this site, praise God! That isn’t its purpose though. The Network is a place for singles to connect and encourage each other. I’m excited to see what God is going to do through this group of single servants.
I contacted the other mission organizations such as CMF, PBT, and NMSI (notice Team Expansion is the only one that’s not abbreviated.) So far the group has about 50 singles from these and other organizations who work all over the world. And I know what you’re probably thinking, “This is a Match.com for single missionaries!” No. It isn’t. Given, if 4112 Old Routt Road Louisville, KY 40299 email@example.com

FEBRUARY Financial Report
Prayer Requests ✤
Pray for more monthly financial support. Pray that the Single “M” Network will be a positive and effective resource to the many single workers serving all over the world. Ask Him to give me wisdom in ways to engage and encourage everyone in the group. Ask God to keep helping me grow in my knowledge of creating useful and effective projects for missionaries and their ministries. I was rear-ended a couple weeks ago. Praise God everyone was okay and the driver’s insurance is paying for my repairs.
Message from the President Dear “Fellow-worker,” That phrase, "fellow-worker" is a special phrase in the New Testament. It is used in several passages and it always speaks toward the concept that those who support a missionary are equally involved in the mission. Take III John for instance. The word translated "fellow-worker" (one who "shows hospitality", III John 8) there in several translations is a term that can mean give food, offer housing, give money, and even "accompany" (as in, accompany the person to the next town). By becoming involved in this way with the traveler, John says we "work together for the truth" (also verse 8). So when you help your favorite Team Expansion missionary "on a journey for His name's sake," you're doing a lot more than a "good turn." You're actually participating in the work -- in a very real way. For that, we are all very grateful -the organization, the worker, and the people being reached! Thank you!
