Ministry Change

— On Fri, 10/12/12, Liz Niclasen <liz_niclasen@ntm.org> wrote:

Dear Friends in Fall River,

When God lead us to move to England in 2008, we thought at that time that this would probably be our last big move and ministry change. We feel we have settled in well here and really have been enjoying our ministries – especially time with the students who are in training to ‘carry the torch’.

However since we were in the Philippines this past February, we feel that God has been speaking to our hearts about returning there and helping to provide Curriculum for the Kankanaey believers. God spoke to both of our hearts through many people, in several locations, showing us the HUGE NEED. When we were visiting in Lenga (the tribal village where we lived for several years) the believers told us they felt like orphans. They would love to have help with material to teach so that they could grow in their walk with the Lord, and also teach others.

When we were in Baguio (the closet city to our tribe) where many Kankanaey live, a young man from our tribal area, who is there planting a Kankanaey church, begged us to come back and help him.

When we were in Manila and spending time with a fellow Filipino missionary who had been in the Kankanaey tribe with us, he told us WHEN we come back he would resign from his job there and go back with us. We noticed he didn’t ask us IF we could come back, but told us ‘WHEN’ as if that was defiantly in the plans. This was before the subject had even come up.

The thought seemed to be with us 24/7. When we mentioned it to our leaders, coworkers, friends and family, we were only met with positive responses. EVERYONE encouraged us to do it.

Well this is just a brief summary of our present change of direction. If you have any questions at all, please feel free to write and ask. We really want to see you before we begin that journey back to Asia. Right now it looks like we could make a trip to Nova Scotia in March. We trust it will work out for us to see all of you then, and we will be happy to share all the details in person.

Thanking you for your support and prayers as we continue on.

Rocky and Liz

Hi Everyone…

You’ll find attached the current (all be it late) issue of ‘Praying
and Praising for South Sudan’. I hope you are blessed to hear what
the Lord is doing over here, and find much fodder for prayer inside.

I’m finding myself shocked now fast this last segment ‘in’ has been
going, and am now only looking at 3-4 weeks left before I head to
Nairobi again! Where does time go? Soon it will be Christmas, then
I’ll be neck-deep in preparations for another Spiritual Life
Conference, and going through the last FEW months before I leave for
my home assignment! Woah nelly! 🙂 Anyway there is much to look
forward to, and much to do!!! 🙂

I’ve been so grateful to have you as part of my team, upholding before
our Great God the needs and cares of the work here in South Sudan.
Please don’t grow weary in doing good… we will remain in constant
need of your prayers 🙂 I’m started to get excited already about
coming home to tell you in person about all the Lord has been doing…

Much love to you all, and as always, I love hearing from you – your
news, joys, and trials, if you have the time, and desire to share with
me 🙂

Christiane/Katta.

Hello Everyone!

Greetings from Nairobi! I’m attaching for you the next Prayer &
Praise Guide… you’ll find a few ‘updates’ on what I am and have been
doing, as well as some general information about current challenges
and struggles that we as a team are facing, and of course, a plea for
you to joins us and uphold us in prayer 🙂 I do hope you know how
valuable your support in this way, to me, to the team here, and to the
Mabaan, really is. Often… OFTEN, the Mabaan ask me to ask YOU guys
to be praying for them. Although you’ll likely never have the
opportunity to hear it from their own lips… THEY are thankful and
blessed by your ministry before the Throne on their behalf 🙂

I pray that this email finds you well, encouraged in what the Lord is
doing in and around you, and that it will motivate you to ‘keep on’ in
today, for the hope of what is ahead… Eternity with our Savior 🙂

As always, I’d love to hear from you if you have time to drop a line,
and fill me in on what’s happening in your corner of the world… I’ll
do my best to reply… eventually 🙂 But will so appreciate hearing
from you if you desire to say hi 🙂

Thanks again.
Much love.

August 2012 at MACC
Please take some time to read and pray for the needs of Mack Avenue Community Church in Detroit, MI. Thank You!
Summer on MissionWhat does it look like to be on mission in the summer at Mack Ave? It certainly doesn’t happen sitting in our homes! It looks like hitting the street and coming up with creative ways to gather our neighbors to engage in gospel centered conversations. On any given day you can see members meeting for discipleship and going door to door talking with neighbors. Our MACC groups often gather outside on front lawns preparing extra food for neighbors, providing space to connect and hang out with the community. Our portable outdoor movie projector is used to show various movies, again gathering community members to engage the gospel. Here is an average weeks schedule of “some” of our events this past month:

  • July 18th Stevenson MACC Group, Ice Cream Social
  • July 18th Christianity Today interview at MAC Lit
  • July 21st Nielsen MACC Group, BBQ and Movie
  • July 25th Egger MACC, Group BBQ
  • July 26th Open Forum on Mack Ave

The last entry above, Open Forum, consists of a few of our leaders engaging in street preaching. A topic from current events is selected and then we ask questions from the Bible’s perspective. One such question recently asked was, “Does the God want us to be rich?” We have had a few people stop and listen and even ask a question. Again the goal is to be out in the community engaging it with the gospel. Pray for us as we continue to connect with our community through “Open Forum.”

Summer Interns

We have to give a shout out to our 4 interns who served tirelessly this summer! They worked very hard this summer furthering the gospel in our community. We were blessed by their commitment to Jesus and humble attitude. They did a great job of diving into community life and gained vision for transforming communities through a commitment to intentional discipleship.

Prayer Requests

Please pray for Christ centered conversations with our community. Please pray for endurance as we work hard for the gospel and look to September for a month of rest. Please pray for strength and reliance on the Holy Spirit as we all seek to serve our community through various BBQs, movie nights, and service projects this summer. Please pray as we continue to raise financial support. Praise God we were able to put 4 permanent basketball hoops up at the park we hosted our recent basketball outreach. Praise God for the Summer Interns he brought to MACC!

a LONG overdue request for Prayer…

Greetings from South Sudan!

So, this Prayer & Praise Guide is PAINFULLY overdue… by about a month and 1/2 to be exact 😦 Forgive me please for leaving you out of the loop for so long. I actually started writing this in late March (rather proud of my punctuality!) but once I left Doro in early April for SLC and started on the preparations for that, I’m afraid that I was caught up in a whirlwind of lists that required immediate attention … dropping my Prayer Guide down the ‘priority list’ – hummm… perhaps that isn’t the right wording – shouldn’t this be at the TOP of the list!? Anyway, let’s not get into that… it’s here now! 🙂 I’ve amalgamated this one to include 3 months… yes it’s a big longer, but I’d rather see that, at this point, then to leave you hanging once again, if I get this far behind in another few months!

I am determined in the near future to NOT start off an email with an apology for tardiness! 🙂

On a more important and personal note… THANK YOU for your faithful prayers for me, and for what the Lord is doing here – even when I am unfaithful in sending you updates and news and things to pray for. It’s truly a blessing, and a BIG support to know – and hear from you – that you are praying about specific things, or people, or situations… I hope you know what a vital role you play in this ministry – keeping my arms up (so to speak) through your support and prayers.

Much love and appreciation for serving along side you…
Christiane.
