Parents of international workers experienced fellowship and encouragement during the 2021 KNCSB International Parents Fellowship meetings.

Meetings were held via Zoom and in four locations: Blue Valley Baptist Church, Overland Park, Kan.; College Heights Baptist Church, Manhattan, Kan.; Pleasantview Baptist Church, Derby, Kan.; and Southview Baptist Church, Lincoln, Neb.

Thank you to Tom and Diana Elliff for sharing with parents of missionaries via a Zoom webinar. Having children and grandchildren on four different continents gave them wisdom, insight and experience that they could pass on to these parents.

Thank you to those of you who prayed for these meetings.  It was so good to be together and hear from four different missionary couples who were on stateside assignment.  Time together with other parents, praying together, and enjoying food and fellowship highlighted the time.

Thanks to all the parents that gathered.  In every meeting there was at least one “this-is-a-small-world” moment. All were encouraged to trust God with their children and grandchildren and dismiss fear, worry and loneliness.  How comforting it is to know there are others dealing with these same circumstances and that God’s grace is sufficient.

This meeting will be held Aug. 5-6, 2022, with the location to be announced. If you know parents of missionaries, please let them know about this resource for them. Or have them contact the Sending Office at KNCSB or Priscilla Sapp at priscillasapp@gmail.com
