Mission's Monday - Big Announcement

Below is a snippet from the His Voice news letter that is sent out through email. It's announcing our VERY exciting news which is...

Heath is now going to be working with His Voice. Vernon, the founder of the ministry, asked Heath several weeks ago if he would like to come on board as Director of Ministry Development.

Last year, when we went to Sudan with His Voice, the moment we got home Heath said he knows that we are supposed to do more with this ministry. And it has been so neat to watch all year how God put that desire in Heath's heart and how He has worked out all out to bring us to this point.

We are so excited about this new chapter in our lives! We are so thankful that God has opened this door for Heath. We love this ministry and now, to be able to work with them, is like a dream.

So be prepared to hear lots more.

Great Additions in the
Life of His Voice

Hey Everyone,

I am excited to let you know we have hired two new employees for His Voice. We believe this will give us great opportunity to expand and deepen our reach in proclaiming the Gospel to all nations.

Justin Kitchens is not only one of the smartest guys I know, he also loves the Lord more than most people I have ever known. Justin will be the Executive Financial Director. He will be responsible for overseeing the books and also helping us to build out a more extensive business plan in order for future growth. He is going to be pursuing his MBA in accounting also.

Heath Hartsfield is a great friend and also an incredible business mind. He will be coming on in the capacity of Director of Ministry Development. Heath will be responsible for helping us to create innovative ways for people to partner with His Voice and also for more people to hear about what we are doing.

I have specifically kept these introductions very brief because they will each be writing more about themselves in the next eLetter. My main purpose was to quickly introduce them to you so that you can start to pray for us as a ministry team. I have personally been overwhelmed by the graciousness of God to bring both of these guys in my life. He is the provider of all things good and gives us what we need at the most precise time. Thanks Papa!

Clapping!! Yay! Praying for God to bless everything your husband I know why God has kept y'all's photo on the front of our fridge. I was just thinking the other day, "Should I leave it up, since y'all weren't on a trip right now?" And I felt a sureness that it belonged there and we should continue to pray. Yay!! Praise God!
