Almost 20 years ago, in our first year of marriage, we felt drawn by God to go on our first mission trip together. We typed up our letter and even purchased our tickets to Paraguay, South America where we would assist Jeff’s Uncle Richard and Aunt Eloise at the Bible school they built as full-time missionaries.

But then, life happened, and God closed that door for a season.

Since then, our family has had the opportunity to take and lead several mission trips to various countries to include Guatemala, India, Costa Rica and Haiti. (Our son, Christian, also served a summer in Brazil when he was 14.) Knowing that God has placed a full time calling on our lives in ministry, we try to use the gifts He gave us to evangelize, both locally and globally. As many of you already know, in 2010, we started Within Reach Ministries where we do just that.

Last year we felt a tugging once again to plan a trip to Paraguay, SA. We made contact with Richard and Eloise Gwinn to discuss bringing a team in the spring of 2013. We started considering who would join us on this reopened door.

In November 2012, Richard unexpectedly became very ill. He passed from this earth on December 4, 2012 and entered the presence of the Almighty God. He, with his wife Eloise, served on the mission field for over 30 years.

Since his passing, Eloise has remained strong in the Lord and continues to receive the support and prayers of her friends and family. She contacted us to please come with a team to help her with the needs of the Bible school, as she plans to continue serving in Paraguay.

We have begun building our team and have plans to travel May 20-27, 2013. We will also seek every open door to evangelize. We are asking that you put us on your prayer list and to please consider a financial contribution.

Please pray for open doors, God’s guidance, for God to prepare hearts in advance to receive, health and safety, for team unity, provision, wisdom, discernment, to break language barriers, anointing, against any enemy attacks, for the team to fulfill the purposes God sets before us, and for many to come to know Jesus personally!!
