Ganeys at Tenwek-

“About a week ago, we celebrated the fourth class of residents to graduate from the Surgical Training Program at Tenwek. It was so exciting to see four very qualified, godly residents finish their training well. What an encouraging highlight in the midst of some very hard weeks. Please keep praying about the doctors’ strike in Kenya. We haven’t seen any movement toward a resolution. The patients are suffering and those still working are growing weary.”

Romdenhs in Cambodia-

“On February 4th, Sophear turned two-years-old and on March 16th, she had surgery to close a hole in her heart. It was a very scary time for us, but we felt so supported! There were people all around the world praying for Sophear and for us! During the days and weeks leading up to and following Sophear’s surgery, we were reminded in a very real way of two important truths: 1) God is a big God and 2) He loves our precious daughter, His precious daughter. I’m reminded of the lyrical line ‘I’m no longer a slave to fear, for I am a child of God!!’ It is with confidence in this truth that I am able to go to Cambodia.”

Adventures in Chaos- Solheims

“I’m not the only parent who has ever had to say goodbye to an only son, but today it sure feels like it. Tonight when I hug Nick goodbye, it will hurt more than any other time before. I know it’s part of being a parent to let your kids go. But what about when you’re the one going? Sending him off somehow seems easier.”

Beyond Rivers- Hidugs

“At the end of this month (December 2016) I will mark 10 years since I left home, Eritrea. Helen will have a few more months to go after me to complete 10 years. We lived most of that period as refugees.”

Life Between the Trees- WGM Compassion

“Linda Spriegel, a WGM missionary in Kenya at Tenwek Hospital, shares in this post about the Tenwek Orphan ministry and some of the challenges they faced this past year. What should the response of the Church be to orphans and impoverished families?  There is more and more discussion on the global front about doing away with orphanages and empowering families to adopt. We’d love to hear your thoughts as you read and process Linda’s story in regard to the care of orphans.”

Divinely Blessed

Steve and Kelly Solheim are missionaries serving in Honduras. They are currently on homeland ministry assignment, which involves visiting churches, camps, and supporters here in the United States. While traveling, the Solheims met a family who shared the story below. Read on to be reminded how God can make an impact through His people.

“In the last few months we’ve met some incredible and inspiring people on our HMA (Home Ministry Assignment) journey. And we’re blessed that so many of them have come alongside us in support of our ministry in Honduras. One of our newest champions recently wrote about her family’s decision to partner with Team Solheim in Honduras.

‘My name is Anna. My husband, Nate, and I live in Buffalo, Wyoming with our three young children. While I stay home with our children, Nate goes to work. He is a truck driver working for a construction company. I pray that this letter will encourage all who read it and will give you some insight into how Steve and Kelly have placed a Godly imprint on my life.

‘From what I have observed, Steve and Kelly deliberately invest their time in becoming acquainted with people. I know that wherever they have been, wherever they go, whatever they do, they are witnessing for Christ. How do I know? The passion that God has placed on their hearts for missions is so great that it radiates from them! Whether they’re in Honduras, in the States, even in our little backwoods church camp, the Solheim’s intense devotion has and will shine into every person’s life they meet!

‘Even though we haven’t really been involved with missions before now, we are excited to go on this adventure with Steve and Kelly. We are thrilled to be a part of this ministry because we know that God will work through it to touch and change the lives and hearts of the young people of Honduras. 

‘The Scripture says in Matthew 5:16, “Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven.” This verse IS the Solheims. They have spiritually encouraged my husband and myself by just being a light for Christ. For this reason, along with the gentle urging from the Holy Spirit, my husband and I chose to become involved in God’s awesome adventure in Honduras by financially supporting them. For by praying and supporting Steve and Kelly, we are helping them to further the Kingdom of God!’

“Champions like the McKinney family make a difference in ministry. They don’t just provide the finances we need. Our partners make an impact on our lives and the lives of the people of Honduras. To say that we are honored and humbled by the team with which God is surrounding us is an understatement. We are divinely blessed.”
