MISSIONS 2014
WHERE DOES MY MONEY GO???
THE WINONA LAKE FREE METHODIST CHURCH SUPPORTS FIVE MISSIONARY COUPLES AND A CHURCH PLANTING PROJECT.

Mike & Vicki Reynen live in Kenya, Africa. He is the Africa Area Director so
travels the entire continent with administrative responsibilities. The African
continent has 57 countries. Free Methodist Missions are in about 28 of them.
Vicki oversees the Child Care Ministries in the various countries. We promise
Reynen’s $4000 per year.

Gary & Pat Cruce now live in Indianapolis, USA. They left their hearts in
Peru where they served for a number of years. They returned a year ago to
Indiana. They were needed at the Free Methodist Missions office to coach
missionaries in effective ways to raise their needed support. Pat & Gary have
been effective as shown by the financial results of 2013. We pledge $4000
for their ministry.

Mike & Maria Long minister in Greece. WLFMC is Mike’s home church
where he grew up and was known as “Kevin”. After High School he went as a
volunteer to Greece for two years where he did street ministry. While there he
met Maria, who is Greek, and the rest is history. They served as pastors with
the Free Methodists in Florida and Indiana. Then they returned to Greece to
serve as missionaries. They have a passion to take Jesus to the people of
Greece. We help them by paying $8000 of their annual salary.

Steve & Jenny Evoy still live in Michigan as their funds are not fully
raised. Steve was appointed last year as Area Director for Asia. When funds
are in place, the family plans to move to Thailand. They have two young
girls. Steve travels to Asia from time to time to fulfill his responsibilities. It
will be great for the Evoys when they can live in Asia as they will have more
time together as a family. We help Steve and Jenny with $2000 of their
funding.

Ken & Linda live in Iraq in the Kurdistan region. In this creative access
country they are learning the majority language and culture. Building
relationships is very important in a culture where everything is based upon
them. This takes time. Ken, a medical doctor, is also doing some clinics in
out-lying areas. We support them with $1000 each year.

We also help Church Planting in Egypt with $1000. This
money buys supplies and helps men to travel to villages to start small
home groups where people study God’s word.
