La Paz, Bolivia (May 2-16)

We are incredibly excited about the next few weeks as Ryan will be leaving to spend 2 weeks in Bolivia training leaders with Gary Willett and co-leading a missionary journey team. Ryan and Gary will leave on May 2nd and fly to La Paz to spend a few days getting all the logistics lined up and leaders trained for the team that will be in country the 5th-13th. The training they will be doing with the national leaders will be VERY important as they will be training them in reproducing discipleship that leads to healthy, mission focused churches. Please join us in praying that this training will be the foundation to see a movement of God in both disciple making and church planting throughout the city of La Paz.

The missionary journey team of 13 will then come down on May 5th to join the Lord in His harvest fields in search of persons of peace (click here to watch a video from our training on persons of peace). We will be working in different villages throughout the city where the newly trained leaders will be able to continue working with new believers and persons of peace. Ryan will be posting updates to the blog ( so you can keep up with all God is doing in Bolivia. If you'd like prayer updates for the team as a whole, email and you'll be added to the list.

On the 13th the team will return to the States while Ryan and Gary hop on another plane to Cochabamba, Bolivia in order to set up a few logistics for the journey Ryan will lead there in October. They will also be meeting with a few potential partners and training them with the same process the leaders in La Paz will go through. 

Cochabamba, Bolivia (October 20-29)

We have officially listed a missionary journey that Ryan will be leading to Cochabamba this fall! This journey has exciting potential as it will be the FIRST we have taken to this area. Cochabamba is an area in Bolivia that is rich with culture and ripe for the harvest. We will be leading a team to do exactly what Jesus sent his disciples to do in Luke 10. Please join us in praying for God to lead the people he has called to this journey to trust him and apply to go!

If you'd like more information about this missionary journey click here or simply reply to this email with questions. We would be filled with such joy to share this journey together with you!

Intervene 2016

As a part of an outreach event of New Life Community Church, NLGM was given an amazing opportunity to train believers to take the gospel to our local community in the same way we do on the mission field. We got to lead a small team to an apartment complex in the city and saw believers trained, the gospel proclaimed, and people respond to the call to follow Jesus! We are so grateful to the Lord for sending us more workers to join in the harvest right where we live. If you are local to the Martinsburg/Winchester area and would like to get involved with strategically sharing the gospel and making disciples simply respond to this email and we will work with you to get you plugged in to all that God is doing!
This was our awesome team for Intervene 2016!
This is from a day we got to spend sharing the gospel in our own city!

Family Update

We've entered into the third trimester of pregnancy and Baby McFarland will be here before we know it! All of our doctor visits have gone incredibly well so far and Baby is currently kicking up a storm day and night. We are still trying to intentionally buy up the moments we have left just the two of us based off of advice we've received from many couples.

Currently we have raised between 60-70% of our monthly support and we are praying hard for God to lead us to people with whom he wants us to partner with to fulfill the mission he has called us to be a part of together.
This was part of our team praying with a woman during Intervene 2016.

Prayer Requests

  • Continued leading as we intentionally make disciples here
  • Wisdom and guidance for implementing new training into all levels of missionary journeys
  • God's leading in planning missionary journeys for 2017
  • Ryan to train leaders and lead missionary team to La Paz
  • God to raise up a team for Cochabamba
  • Healthy pregnancy for Abigail and Baby
  • Both of us while we spend 2 weeks apart (13 days more than we've ever spent apart so far)

A Fresh Word From God

"...and I saw One like a son of man
coming with the clouds of heaven.
He approached the Ancient of Days
and was escorted before Him.
14 He was given authority to rule, 
and glory, and a kingdom;
so that those of every people,
nation, and language
should serve Him.
His dominion is an everlasting dominion
that will not pass away,
and His kingdom is one
that will not be destroyed."
Daniel 7:13-14

This passage has provided great vision for us, as it did for Daniel, and encouragement as we seek to be a part of completing the Great Commission and seeing this vision become a reality! We pray that it can provide inspiration to you as well.
