Lane Lareau (Clarkston, GA)
Lane Lareau serves with the Navigators in poverty alleviation, helping leaders in Clarkston, Georgia, own the process of coming up with solutions to the factors impacting their community’s well-being. Lane's team believes that poverty is ultimately tied to broken relationships, so the solutions they help leaders discover are holistic: spiritual, physical, social, and psychological. They accomplish this by 1) mentoring local leaders in community disciple-making, 2) collaborating with established local groups like religious and nonprofit organizations, and 3) training and releasing other practitioners to do the same in their US or global context. Lane is married to Kim, and they have two children, Asher and Alyson. He enjoys jogs on Atlanta paths, Legos with his children, and Christopher Nolan films.click here for further updates!
Brent & Hollie Dodd (Mexico)
God has given strength and safety, as many patients were flown to and from the hospital in 2018. Lives were saved and patients received the medical help they needed, which they would have not have received without the service given by the aircraft. Thank you for praying for us as we serve in a high risk area. Please pray for all of the UIM Aviation pilots and mechanics who will be meeting in El Paso, TX for meetings. They will be discussing technical issues, procedures/policy changes and spend a great deal of time in prayer and in God's word. Please pray for wisdom from the Lord that decisions will be made and with God's wisdom and guidance to best serve others and the Kingdom work ongoing in Mexico. Continue to pray for the aircraft itself and the maintenance that is needed to complete our work. I have been studying to take my written exams, so I can get my flight instructors rating. I plan to be stay with a missionary couple to lower their flight cost.
Rev. Tshililo Liphadzi (South Africa)
I am pastor in the Reformed Church in South Africa Synod Soutpansberg. I am serving a congregation called Reformed Church Midrand between Pretoria and Johannesburg. This congregation has been mandated by our classis Gauteng to plant five churches by 2023. We now have five fellowship centers in the area with the intention to grow them into local churches. I have a few prayer requests: Perseverance in building our seminary without which we cannot sustain the church planting work all over the country; Reaching our goal to plant five churches by 2023; Monthly trips to the Seminary: safety, health; and finally Leadership that I am working with.
Noah and Katie (Ericks) Butterfield (Florida)
Noah and Katie are working with Youth With a Mission (YWAM) in Orlando to train up the next generation of missionaries as they get sent out to the nations. Generation Z could become the greatest movement of missionaries the world has ever seen. We work to see that vision become a reality by training and equipping young adults to have the theological and practical training they will need for short-term mission trips and lifelong ministry overseas.
