This month the Mission Ministry Team has chosen to feature missionaries Regan and Mellie (daughter of Kathy & Tom Bonde) Martin. Their children are Zoe, Malachi, Micaiah, Ernie, Meara, and Elise. Here’s an update from them:
We are grateful for the Lord’s gracious hand on our pre-field journey. We joined a new agency, Training Leaders International (TLI), last August and have now reached 70% support. We also just welcomed a new baby girl, Elise Marie, into our family in January (see the pic!). Glory be to God!
Our goal is to reach South Africa this summer, and TLI allows us to start making plans when we reach 90% support. We are pushing for that mark by the end of April. Many of you have met us or personally heard us share our missions burden for serving churches in townships by equipping expository preachers of Christ. Would you prayerfully consider helping us reach the field by partnering with us in regular giving? We believe the local church is central to gospel work and do not want to take away from your giving there. But if your heart is stirred to go above and beyond it and give to the Martins, we would thank God, with joy, for your partnership! We would love to see Christ raise up an army of givers who would double as prayer warriors in our gospel cause!
To become a giving partner, visit trainingleadersinternational.org/give, select “Global Partners” and fill in our names, “Regan and Mellie Martin”. Follow the instructions from there to set up a giving account with TLI. Or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org with giving questions.
We thank God for you all who pray for us in Christ! The Lord bless you!
Regan and Mellie Martin
