Update from Derrick and Barbara Pennon and Refugee Work

Bibles for Refugees

Derrick and Barbara Pennon report that refugee believers they have trained are reaching new refugees as they arrive at entry points in their country. Sometimes entire families are becoming believers. "God is at work among the refugees in these islands!"

Getting to Know Appalachia

How much do you know about Appalachia? Do you know where it is located? Who lives there? The ministry needs that are found there?

Nice to Meet You

Nell Branum

My name is Nell Branum. I am one of your Preschool Team writers, and it is a joy! I love preschoolers (good thing, as I have 8 grandchildren!) and I love writing. But as 2018 picks up steam, a new opportunity has presented itself to me, and it has to do with your WMU Preschool Team.

Our beloved editor, Robin McCall, is making a shift in her job responsibilities at WMU. For the past 5 years, Robin has served as editor of Preschool Resources, leading the team that produces our helpful Mission Friends curriculum and products. Robin was a Mission Friends teacher long before she became an editor, and she has a true love for preschoolers and missions. She has done an amazing job. But the trouble with multi-talented people is that they can do many things! And God has led Robin to shift into helping our WorldCrafts and WMU customer engagement hubs to deepen their ministries. Robin, we thank you for your energy and commitment, your invaluable contributions to preschoolers, and your sweet spirit, and we are praying for you as you follow this new path.
