October 2015 Missionaries

Bart and Kimberly Maley
Wycliffe Associates
Director of Community Development

The Maleys live in Gladstone where Bart works out of his home.  Bart is a conduit for Wycliffe to work in communities around the globe to develop agricultural and water systems.  
Kimberly works as an Interpretive Ranger at Silver Falls State Park.  Though the job is seasonal, she hopes to find a permanent full time position in the Oregon State Park system.  The Maleys have three girls in college and appreciate your prayers for their continued success.   
The work that Wycliffe is doing through the efforts of community development allows them to develop relationships in communities  and meet needs for clean water.  These relationships also allow for opportunities to meet needs for Bible translation with indigenous language groups.  
The Lord has brought miracles of bridge building between church groups and communities through the development of water systems.  Continue to pray for more open doors to share the love of Christ and the translation of His Word.  

 

Pamela Duhrkoop
One Mission Society
HOPE61 Trainer – South Korea

HOPE61, inspired by Isaiah 61, is a ministry that seeks to prevent the spread and ultimately the issue of human trafficking. Pamela has been in South Korea since March of this year.  Pamela is working to build bridges to share about and bring awareness of this issue, which may be an ongoing and long process.  Pray for God to open doors to share about HOPE61 and to remove some of the language/cultural barriers that might block the progress of HOPE61 in South Korea.
Pamela has connected in ministry with local churches.  She leads an English worship service every Saturday and leads a children’s English ministry program at another church on Sundays.  She has started teaching an English conversation class on Saturday mornings and is hoping it will be a great springboard for building relationships.   
Pamela has just recently has completed six months of formal language school and has transitioned into self-study.  Pray for good Korean friends that Pamela can practice her Korean with.
