August 2018 Ideas


August: Lygia Lovelace's Testimony

I chose to make Jesus my Lord and Savior when I was 9 years old. I was always active in church. I was even a GA and an Acteen! The things I learned in GA and Acteens influenced my heart toward missions.

I dearly loved my GA leader. She loved us, too, because she also taught us when we became Acteens! When I was 15 years old, our youth group at church went to a missionary commissioning service. As I watched the new missionaries stand and make a commitment to missions, I felt God calling me to be a missionary, too. I have never forgotten that calling.

My husband, Ken, and I served with the International Mission Board for 4 years as church planters in Portugal. Today, we serve with the North American Mission Board as church planters in St. Louis, Missouri.

May 2018 Ideas


May: Alicia Martin — My Story

My name is Alicia. I was born in Bolivia. Cynthia and Tom Martin, and their sons Kyle and Joel, were missionaries in Bolivia at the time I was born. God brought me into their lives. I was an abandoned baby who was very near death because no one had taken care of me or fed me. Cynthia and Tom nursed me back to health, adopted me, and named me Alicia. Cynthia and Tom Martin became my parents!

Kyle and Joel are now adults. They are both married and have children of their own. I am now 23 years old. I live with my parents in Las Vegas. We like to go camping in the deserts near Las Vegas. We like to watch movies and play board games together.

I go with my parents to refugee events. I help my mom with special events like Bible clubs for refugee children. I also help with English classes for adults.
