While we spend our week in grateful celebration for our freedom, we also make space to grieve for the people around the world who yearn for the same privilege. We have ministry partners in many countries whose work is subversive, who are teaching their friends and neighbors about the spiritual freedom that comes from life in Christ, all while living in communities who live in very real fear of government violence, financial insecurity, lack of accessible medical care, or a combination of all of these, among many other infringements on human rights.
As you enjoy your celebrations this week we ask specifically for prayer for our ministry partners around the world working with refugees, living in countries who have made the preaching of the Gospel illegal, and working in communities entrenched in civil unrest.
Including the ministries in Africa, Asia, South and Central America, and Middle Eastern countries.
We are overjoyed to welcome Stephanie Faulkner to our staff! She is joining Perception Funding as our Financial Operations Coordinator. Stephanie has worked as administrative coordinator to one of our ministry partners, GOT Ministries, for the last year, so she has been able to jump right in to daily operations with a working understanding of many of our financial rhythms. She has a BA in Psychology and Criminology from Kansas State, a M.Div & an M.A. Spiritual Formation from Asbury Theological Seminary. We are thrilled to have fresh eyes on our team, and we are looking forward to all the ways she will improve our systems!
