#NoPlaceLeft Church Planting Training

The beginning of February was an exciting time for us as we traveled to Stuart, FL to take part in a #NoPlaceLeft Network church planting training. The focus was on what is and is not working in the United States (and a little bit globally) when it comes to church planting movements. It was AWESOME to rub shoulders with and learn from people who are truly seeing multiplication of disciples locally and globally. 

God used this training to challenge us personally on how we are being obedient disciples where we live, but also when it comes to how we do missionary journeys globally. We have begun tracking gospel movement (meaning shares, acceptance, questions, and everything else) in the Martinsburg area so we can intentionally follow up and disciple people who live in our own community. We believe God is going to do something big in Martinsburg and Berkeley county.

2016 Missionary Journey Plans

Last month we gave you a sneak peek into what God is cooking up for New Life Global Ministries for 2016 and asked you to join us in prayer. Keep praying! God has made it clear where He wants us to go. We are now asking Him to let us know WHEN we need to go. The details are in the works and we are excited to see where He leads us. If you want to stay up to date "like" our NLGM Facebook Page and you'll see dates and information shortly after they are released.

At this point we do know that Ryan will be co-leading a journey to La Paz, Bolivia in May and doing set up work for a journey later in the year to Cochabamba, Bolivia. Training for this journey has already begun and we are excited about the potential that our team of disciple-makers has before them. We are even implementing a new gospel tool to effectively share and train others to share the gospel. Check out a quick intro video to this tool that you can begin using today by clicking here.

Abigail is currently focusing and working on local and national journeys. We have a heart for seeing believers in our area trained to multiply disciples starting in their own homes and communities. We have a split children's ministry/construction journey planned to Gary, WV to work with our ministry partner, The School For Life. We are also planning local training in partner churches around the area.

We are so grateful for your support and prayers as we seek to make His name known by making disciples here, there and everywhere.

After a week of training our team pulled away for 36 hours to download and prayerfully seek God's face for our next steps!
Stuart, FL is part of an area in southern Florida with 8 million people where only 4% are "churched."

Baby McFarland On The Way

We have been overwhelmed with God's grace so far in Abigail's pregnancy as we have enjoyed lots of doctor visits with lots of good news. Just a few weeks ago we did our first ultrasound and got to see our baby! Wow! It's amazing what technology can show you. Everything with the baby looked very healthy and they classified Abigail as low risk. We even got to find out (with 95% certainty) the gender of baby McFarland. After spending a few days telling family personally, we wanted you to be the first to know! Check out the gender reveal picture we took below!
We are having a baby girl! Since you are some of the first to know please do not post anything to Facebook until we do.
