Unscripted Ministry

By Duane Stixrud, who serves with InFaith in Washington

Life and ministry during the past few months has truthfully been like none other for Debbie and me. Virtually every day has been a stretching and faith-building mixture of seeking to advance the gospel here in northwestern Washington all the while caring for Debbie through weekly chemo treatments, neo-adjuvant cancer therapies, surgery, and now a continuing biological therapy and daily radiation.

Having Coffee

By Ken McCune, who serves with InFaith in Idaho

We are experiencing a strange phenomenon here in our town. It is difficult to get new people to congregate or commit to anything other than party-type get-togethers, except that Lori keeps meeting with ladies who are excited to “go have coffee.” Continue

It has been my prayer in recent months that God would reveal to me my shortcomings and give me the vision to see how my decisions affect my family spiritually, emotionally, and physically.Continue

A Broken Heat Pump

By Colleen Cole, who serves with InFaith in Nebraska

We have been on the field twenty-seven years. During that time we have ministered to many communities besides the one we live in. At times, it seems like the field asks more and more from us.

This summer, while we were in the middle of either having two Vacation Bible Schools a day or all-day ones, with summer missionaries living with us, our heat pump not only quit but broke. The heating and air man (Shawn) said, “It’s broke, can’t be fixed. You will have to get a new one.”Continue
