Prayer Request for Summer Missions

The Lord said “go” and CRM said “yes.” Will you join us?

It is a good thing that our Lord promised to those who obey His command to go and make disciples of the nations that He will be with us through it all. God has given CRM teams opportunities to do significant work in Kenya, Zambia, and Tanzania this summer.

Early this year, we met with education officials in Kajiado county, Kenya. They have invited us to teach teachers to use the Story Cloths to teach the Bible and to help the students learn vocabulary, math, and science. Think about the potential. Thousands of children will learn about how God sent His Son to save them and how God is the One who created language, science, and math! Pray for our team as we do the training in Kenya June 4-8.

There will be two others on this team working with a number of Maasai pastors and leaders in reaching herdsmen in Kajiado county with the gospel on the Story Cloth using a cow vaccination clinic. As men bring their herds to us, they hear about the salvation Jesus offers them as the stories are shared each day before the clinic begins. We have already seen hundreds reached. June 11, Peggy and I depart Kenya for Kitwe Zambia, where we will be introducing the teacher training strategy to provincial and spiritual leaders in the Copperbelt Province of Zambia. We will also be training over 20 lead teachers to implement the training with other teachers there.

In May, Randy Mann, from partnering church Central Baptist in NC, trained Maasai leaders to work with the teams going to Tanzania this summer.

  • June 21-July 7, a co-ed camping evangelism team from partnering church, Central Baptist in NC, will be working in Tanzania close to the border with Kenya in an area called Kiserian, TZ.
  • July 18-August 2, a camping evangelism team from our partnership with Sevier Heights Baptist Church in TN, will be working in an area north of Kitumbeine in Tanzania.
  • August 8-21, another team from our partnership with Sevier Heights and Families on Missions, will be doing the follow-up discipleship training for leaders of those areas.

What’s exciting is that groups of believers in Tanzania who were led to Christ by our teams last year are meeting under trees! CRM’s construction team from Chilhowee Hills Baptist Church in TN is planning to go and build churches for them early in 2019.

Many with CRM have said yes to our Lord’s command to go! The only reason we can go is because you give. Will you pray about going? If unable to go, will you pray for those who are going and ask the Lord if He wishes to work through you to give so they may go. As God leads, you can mail your check to CRM, 4100 Fulton Rd, Corryton, TN 37721, or give online at
