  • Pray for us as we move into an apartment in Ulaanbaatar, our new city of residence for our second term in Mongolia. Our belongings are still in Darhan, so this will leave us disjointed for a time as we make this "move" upon our return.
  • Pray for us as we step into ministries similar to those we were involved with our first term, but in a whole new context. These will primarily include teaching and leadership training and family and counseling ministries.
  • Pray for our children as they adjust to a new school. This will be a BIG adjustment to a school in which their lessons will be in English but most of the student body is Mongolian.
  • Pray for safe and smooth travel and flexibility with whatever might come our way as we head to the other side of the world.
  • As always, thanks so much for your partnership and prayers! Check out our website at its new address for additional information and specific ways to partner with us through prayer, care, finances, short terms teams, and ongoing connectedness.

  • We’re finishing up final details for our retreat this year. We have 40 people on the waiting list! We’re really wondering about the idea of starting a second retreat somewhere else in France (it’s still an unofficial idea, but who knows?). We could use prayer. Please pray specifically for our small groups, that the Lord will lead and that He will work deeply in the hearts of the ladies who attend; also that the Lord will especially help all the group leaders this year, giving them wisdom and ability to lead the groups in an effective way.
  • I’m beginning to make long lists and am trying to set days aside to get ready for my year in the States (I leave the 12th of July). I’d appreciate prayer. Several people have offered to help, and I think I’ll take them up on it. I’m trying to really fix my priorities.
  • Our evangelistic Bible study is going well. Please continue to pray for the Tunisian lady who is comparing Christianity and Islam. I spent an afternoon with her, talking to her about a book that she gave me that tries to prove the Bible is wrong. In the Bible study we point out clearly that Jesus is the only way. She takes notes, but always tries to find ways that Christianity and Islam are similar! Pray for conviction by the Holy Spirit.
  • I have two Americans who are coming to stay with me for a wedding we are all attending the 9th of June. The son of a Catholic couple I know is getting married. I don’t know these two girls, and I have no idea where they’re at spiritually, but I don’t think they are Christians. Pray that I will have chances to share with them.
  • In Him,  Lel Fickett]]>

One of the best ways of keeping people up to date is through our website (our church really uses this resource). It is also one of the ways we present ourselves to the world. We really need a Content Manager (CM). This ministry is for somebody who is disciplined. The majority of the work is posting and deleting items to the site once or twice a week. The CM also peruses the site once in awhile to check for errors and note where updates are needed. This may require soliciting the ministries for the needed text and pictures. Skills required:
    1. Familiarity with using a computer. Have you used a simple word processor? Do you use Facebook or other form based online services?
    2. Willing to learn the tasks required (training provided). You’ll be working with our webmaster Robin Schoenborn.
    3. Good communication skills.
    4. Attention to detail.
    No software needed (PowerPoint and Word are helpful, but not required). Contact Robin Schoenborn if you are interested, 695-9887.]]>

The messages from Joseph were very profound, and many women were touched concerning things in their past. For some, it was the realization of forgiveness that needed to take place, for others, it was family secrets that needed to be talked about because they were affecting family relations, or losses that had been denied and needed to be healed. There was a lot of sharing in the small groups, and the testimonies were very powerful at the end of the two and a half days. We had a special evening the second night to celebrate our 40th year of the retreat. We had a choir, skits, a dance (see picture above) and a short DVD tracing the history of our retreat. We ended with a fake cake that someone had made with 40 burning candles. The committee went up on the stage to blow the candles out. It was so wonderful to think about what God has done in the lives of women over the last 40 years. I would appreciate your prayers now as I prepare this week and next for our week-long course on inductive Bible study. We have 7 ladies coming (two pastors’ wives) It will take place from the 14th to the 21st of this month.

  • Here is this update’s miracle testimony: My housemate was on a visit to CA a few weeks ago, while there she stayed in the room of a young man who was away on a short term mission trip. This young man is from Australia, just before leaving his home country to attend a school in Redding, CA, his computer, passport and money were all stolen. The church helped him to get another passport and replenish his money for school. The thing that bummed him out the most concerning his computer is that his whole Master’s thesis was on that computer and he didn’t have a back-up copy anywhere. After arriving to the states he was able to purchase a new laptop. The computer was brand new, never been used. One day, after booting up his computer, what should happen to pop up on the screen? ……. Yep!!!! His Master’s thesis! True story! God cares for absolutely everything we care about! There is NO loss in His Kingdom! God is sooooo good!

    • Pray for family and team relationships to grow as we have more time this summer (Kids are finished with school May 12th!)
      2. FITNESS MINISTRY
    • Pray for Mighty Men’s classes in the evenings. It is planting season so many of the guys are really tired!
    • Pray for Women’s class in the mornings. Usually 3-5 women come to workout with Krista for a boot camp style aerobics class in our tiny room with limited equipment.
    • Pray for the other foreigners here in town that come and workout in the morning before the women’s class.
    • Pray for a potential partnership with a local school. They plan to start building a new basketball court, soccer field, bleachers and a fitness building this month. We are praying about providing equipment and in return using their space for our fitness club in the evenings.
    3. LANGUAGE STUDY
    • Praise Him!!! Krista’s language teacher is professing faith and learning more everyday.
    • Pray for Krista as she hopes to disciple her this summer with hopes to start a study with other women as well.
    4. ADOPTION We finally got word from the orphanage director. Unfortunately, the director has been battling with the government on behalf of our daughter (and adoption in general). Although this has caused many delays, it seems that everything is panning out. There is still one more piece of paperwork that needs to be signed by the local government before our file is sent to the capital in Addis. Basically this means that we have no idea how long it will be before we get court dates. PLEASE PRAY! I am encouraged when I imagine angels charging down from heaven every time we pray on behalf of our daughter, Acacia, and all the other children in Ethiopia! Praise Him that He is a Victorious WARRIOR and He is sending Armies of Angels to fight injustice! (Isa 42) Jason and Ruth Lee - Ulaanbaatar
    • Please pray for Nicek Church will grow in Christ. Amaraa's friend, "Nayaa" is the leader of the church. She works as a cook at a construction company which requires long working hours. She was once a church leader many years ago, but stopped going to church because she was disappointed and hurt. Now, her calling is renewed and she wants to serve this body of Christ. Please pray for Nayaa that she will remain strong and obedient to God's calling.
    • Please pray for Amaglant School and house church to find a permanent site. When asked to move by a landlord, there is no legal protection for us to stay even with a signed lease. We started a Saturday prayer morning meeting. Please pray for more Mongolian prayer warriors to arise.
    • On June 11, six people from Leeward Alliance Church in Hawaii will come to Mongolia for five-day VBS at our CAMA Schools (4 schools around the city). Please pray for their safe traveling, smooth and easy entry into Mongolian airport and their health. We are expecting 60-70 children in three sites around the city. Please pray for safety as we travel from one end of the city to the other side.
    • Please pray for our house church leaders. It is very difficult to raise up faithful church leaders. Please pray for 1)Amaglant House Church - Ms. Degii and Miga 2) Nicek House Church - Ms. Amaraa, Nayaa and Dabka 3) Hani Material House Church - Ms. Little Yrnaa Zong Ail House Church - Ms. Big Yrnaa. Please remember their names in your prayers
    • Please pray for our busy summer schedule. We want to glorify God and Him alone in all we do. Please pray for health and safe of our children and us. Let this summer be the time of growing (physically, spiritually, in all aspects of our ministry).
    Brent and Lisa Liberda - Home Assignment
    • Praise the Lord, three weeks into home assignment in the US we have found a school for the kids, a home to live in (furnished!), and a vehicle to use, all starting in August when our summer travels are complete. Pray for the final details and arrangements for all of this that need to be made.

    • Praise God that An-Hoa got her tooth fixed, and her screening colonoscopy test report were normal.

    • Pray for our visa application to Mongolia. We heard that it becomes more difficult to get the visa this year.

    • Please pray for our visa for the US, that we will be granted a visa for the year we will be at Simpson University in California. Pray that it will come through soon.
    • Praise for the time we can have with our daughters and family in South Africa. We realize now how much we have needed this time of rest after a long term.
    • Praise for positive results from our health check in Korea. We have a few small things we have to work on, but overall our results came out fine. Pieter has a follow-up consultation with the eye specialist, pray that the doctor will be able to treat the problem and that it can be healed.

  • Arnulfo, one of our friends from way back when we worked with the little church in Grupo Mexico. His wife, Carmen, was one of the first women I discipled. He was recently diagnosed with a cancerous tumor on his spinal cord--they tried surgery but couldn't get it all. It's a cancer that doesn't respond well to chemo or radiation. He's been in the States so far but will be returning home on Friday. In a strange way, God is using this "tragedy" to unite his family, bringing all them closer to the Lord as well. He was presented with his hospital bill today...$150,000 US dollars! He has no insurance.
  • Chela and the community center and children of Carretas--I fear she's experiencing burn-out and the stress of seeing so many needs and not being able to meet them is wearing on her. She tries to provide meals for school children whose parents either can't or don't, but often she doesn't have the supplies she needs. Thank God for Panera bread who generously donate bread that we take down weekly--it feeds a couple hundred people! But they can't (and shouldn't) live on bread alone...
  • Pray for Javier Marquez, director of Esperanza Drug/Alcohol Rehab, as he travels across Mexico to help with a new center in Cancun. His wife Lydia was anguishing over a young American girl with heroin addiction who had just run away from the women's center. We met Desiree on Monday and by Tuesday she had fled. Pray for God's victory over these strongholds of Satan's (drug cartels, fear, violence, addictions) that are so very present here on the border--especially in the city of Juarez (across from El Paso).
  • Pray for our family as we take a couple of months to travel and see our son Ian in Indianapolis and friends and supporters across the Midwest. Pray we can line up many appointments with past, present and future partners in the ministry. We hope to come through Los Alamos on our way home from the Colorado wedding of Dennis Gucker (Ruth Dennis' eldest son) on July 16th. Will any of you be around??
  • That's it for now--many thanks for your powerful prayers. Is your meeting at Helen Barker's house? Please give her my love! Kathy Saracoff]]>
