James and Lauren Peavy - Summer 2014

Posted onJune 24, 2014 | by: James Peavy | 0 comments

When writing about "un-reached people groups" John Piper states, "a group is reached when mission efforts have established an indigenous that has the strength and resources to evangelize the rest of the group" (Let the Nations be Glad. pg 216). According to this definition, Mongolia is far from the status of a "reached" nation. What I witnessed over the past two weeks was a nation that is almost entirely under the iron grip of Satan as they engage in the enslaving practices of spirit worship and Buddhism. As stated in our prayer letter a few weeks ago, I was given the unique opportunity to go on a construction/missions trip to the town of Khatgal, Mongolia. While the ...Keep Reading

Today is Thursday, I think, and today we are looking forward to what our chef calls "Jamaica Day" for dinner, extra large helpings of traditional Jamaican dishes after visiting the infirmary this morning and then back to our projects for the afternoon....Keep Reading

CCCD Mission Trip 2014 Day 2

Posted onJune 17, 2014 | by: Seth Carter | 0 comments

After a cool shower (no hot water but it still feels great!) last night we woke to a delicious 7 a.m. breakfast. After that we joined the CCCD students and staff for chapel. It was totally done in sign language from the singing to the preaching. But luckily we had our translator, Charles Stores, with us. It was inspiring to see the deaf community worshiping our Lord. After chapel we shuttled out to Bay Life Baptist Church. That was another great experience. We were seated with about 60-80 people in a room a little bit bigger than the mixed adults Sunday school classroom (or the size of two average master bedrooms). We had a great Father's Day sermon encouraging dads to show up for their wives and children and be the leader to help them thorough life's chaos....Keep Reading

Sorry folks. It is late Sunday and I just got access to the internet. I'll send you some journal reports today and try to get pictures later. I'm writing this to you at night overlooking Montego Bay lit up by all the house and city lights along the shore and mountainside, and hearing Jamaican music blaring from different houses surrounding us. Here we go!...Keep Reading

Peavy Prayer Letter - June 2014

Posted onJune 5, 2014 | by: James Peavy | 0 comments

These last few months have been quite busy. We have appreciated all the prayers, calls, and cards we have received. Now we are beginning to get into the swing of deputation with a new baby. Our latest trip has taken us to Central Florida. We have enjoyed fellowship with several different churches. Worshiping with fellow believers and sharing with them our burden for Australia is always a fun experience. We especially enjoyed being a part of a Word of Life Teen meeting at Northside Baptist in Lakeland. James and I have such a heart for teens that any opportunity to interact with them or minister to them is such a blessing....Keep Reading

CRU Update - May 2014

Posted onMay 14, 2014 | by: Ashely & Heather Holleman | 0 comments

One of our top priorities this year has been to develop some "bread-and- butter" tools that would help us and other Faculty Commons staff around the country have more frequent, higher quality and more satisfying gospel conversations with professors. One of the tools we have been working on is an interview. It is designed to help staff easily meet professors they don't know and get to know their world and life better. It gives us a truly legitimate and winsome reason to knock on the door of a professor we don't know (we knock if the door is already open), to introduce ourselves to them, and to ask them for ten minutes of their time for an interview we are conducting. The interview includes a few questions about the spiritual side of their life and work. So, it also gives us an opportunity to have gospel conversations in the future with them if they are interested....Keep Reading

We trust that you had an awesome time reflecting over the death, burial, and resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ this Easter. The resurrection is a constant reminder to us that God is renewing His creation and that He is calling individuals to participate in that renewal through the Gospel! Hallelujah!...Keep Reading
