Here an update from the missionary family, Jacob and Tessa Rodriguez.  They will be ministering in Ethiopia beginning mid-July.  You can email them to receive email updates, and there is information on how to support them financially:

Our goal is to be in Ethiopia in time for Tessa to resume Amharic language school in mid-August and for Jacob to begin teaching at the Evangelical Theological College in Addis Ababa on 17th August.  We hope to return to Ethiopia in mid-July so that we can get settled in time to devote ourselves to our ministry and language learning.  In order for us to get back to Ethiopia, pray along with us for the following things: 

PRAISE God that we are at 82% of our monthly support needs.  PRAY that God will provide for us the remaining $1100/month we have left to raise, as well as our one-time needs.  

PRAY that God will work through the USCIS to grant Tessa her citizenship interview very soon and grant her citizenship so that we can all return to Ethiopia with the same passport country.  

PRAY for us as we travel over 3000 miles and 12 states in the month of May, speaking in churches, meeting with supporters, and encouraging fellow believers with stories of God's work in Ethiopia.  

Lastly, PRAISE God for the many ways we see him at work, like the Iranian Muslim background believer we recently met.  She shared her incredible testimony with us and encouraged us greatly that our future ministry with MBBs is very pleasing to God!

As always, we love to hear from you, so do get in touch:

Episode 2 - Ministry Outside of the Walls: Getting Comfortable with People Who Make Us Uncomfortable

On this podcast we reference getting comfortable with people who make us uncomfortable with stories of unlikely friendships.  Kaylie & Jennifer gives reverence to the topic with some verses out of James and a verse out of Ephesians about unity. And to wrap it up, we've got some great response ideas for you. We want to thank Enric Sifa for allowing us to use his beautiful songs "Dedication to the Queen of Salem" and “Lights are Bright.”  You can find his music on iTunes or on his website enricsifa.com.

Jennifer's LIST: Getting comfortable with people resources

Bob Goff said, “Most of us don't need more information; we need more love.”  That is more than true, but information can help us see others with more compassionate eyes.  Just remember that learning about people groups and issues isn’t the same thing as getting to know an individual.  Always remember that people are individuals, and don’t forget commandment #1 - LOVE.

I also want to point out that some of these movies may have a R rating.  If you are a person that has convictions to avoid those types of movies, I applaud you.  That’s a brave choice.  Don’t feel like you should or shouldn’t watch something just because I say it.  I’m not the Holy Spirit.  Amen and Amen.
