Dear Annie and the good folks of Faith Des Peres,
Thank you for your generous support of UKirk! Your mission grant is very much appreciated and will equip this ministry to kick off 2016 (as will your delicious Christmas cookies!) UKirk heads to the Montreat College Conference on January 1- we have 9 students going. The school will start up again mid-January; your prayers are very much appreciated as we continue to reach more students and have an impact on their faith. May you all have a very blessed and very Merry Christmas.

In the peace and love of Christ,
Pastor Miriam Foltz


Dear friend,

Jenny and I are so grateful for your prayerful support of this ministry we share with our partners in Peru.

We are sorry that we missed you on our recent visit to the St. Louis area. However, we return to the U.S. every March, so we look forward to seeing you again in the not so distant future.

Also, we hope you are receiving our e-newsletter, “Perspectives from Peru” in addition to our quarterly newsletters. The e-newsletters include more updates, photos and learning resources.

Again, we are so grateful for your partnering with us in God’s Mission in Peru.

Jed and Jenny Koball


Dear Elizabeth,

On behalf of the residents and staff of Lydia’s House, we thank you for your generous donation. This has most certainly been a wonderful holiday season for our families.

The halls of Lydia’s House are filled with happiness and joy. Because of you, the women and children of Lydia’s House are able to celebrate the holidays in a safe and loving home.

Through your generous gift, our families take another step in their journey to independent and peaceful lives.

Lydia’s House will continue to work in faith to end domestic violence by being a place of healing and a voice of hope for abused women and their children. With the help of donations from supporters like you, we will continue to be a bridge to freedom for women and children who seek to escape violent homes. Your support truly changes lives.


Thank you.
Warmest wishes for the New Year,

Karen T. Kirk
Executive Director
