Happy New Year friends! Whether you're a goal setter, resolution maker, word of the year person, or do none of these things, let's never forget why we're here in the first place - to worship the only one worthy!

One thing I ask from the Lord, 

this only do I seek:

that I may dwell in the house of the Lord

all the days of my life, 

to gaze on the beauty of the Lord

and to seek him in his temple.

Psalms 27:4

Prayer Requests:
  • Pray for unity as they begin outreaches!
  • Pray for more laborers to be sent into the harvest field (Matt. 9:38) and hat God's word would run swiftly and be glorified (2 Thess 3:1)
  • Pray for their personal spiritual growth, that they would adjust well to the changes, and grow in grace and love toward one another. 

Missionary Spotlight!

LifeMission-sent missionaries Joel and Haley Auten just arrived in Indonesia! They completed their missionary training with the ministry Kairos Global and have rejoined this time as part of the staff! Their heart and vision is still the same - to see Jesus worshipped across Indonesia.

They will continue ministering to the Lord through prayer room hours, as well as learning the language, and loving on the lost through outreaches. They will also serve alongside other local ministries.

If you would like to receive the Auten's newsletter, please let me know!

Minneapolis is home to 80,000 Somalis. Deut 10:18 He defends the cause of the fatherless and the widow, and loves the foreigner residing among you, giving them food and clothing.
