Happy Second Birthday to Hannah!
If one day (or week) of celebration wasn't enough, Ree's parents came the following week with more presents and continual spoils from Grandpa's soda cup and Grandma's cooking.
Poltava - The Soul of Ukraine
Eurasia Regional Conference
In the beginning of November, a regional conference was held in Turkey, where hundreds gathered from our region to worship together and learn in workshops under the theme: Reconciliation (2 Corinthians 5). We were blessed to be able to go and be among the 130 pastors and leaders from our Field! Personally, Ree and I were also blessed by her parents, who allowed us the freedom to attend the conference and have some time of rest (although I'm sure they loved spending time with their granddaughter).
As part of this process, we have been given updated giving information. Our new online giving link is: http://web.nazarene.org/goto/sumifamily. And our new check memo is: Joseph Sumi Deputation. This information can also be found on the Give tab on our website.
Join Us in Prayer
There are two ways you can participate in this prayer ministry over the next year: by email and/or by receiving a 2016 desk calendar. We will be sending out an email at the beginning of each month, different than our regular monthly updates, with details about that month's specific prayer focus, photos related to the month's theme, and how you can best pray for it. Or if you would like a more tangible reminder, you can receive a 2016 desk calendar, which would also include the month's prayer focus and a photo related to the month's theme.
You can also choose to receive both the email and the calendar. Just indicate your preference by responding to this email or by filling out the form on our new Pray tab on our website. We look forward to praying with you over this next year!
