Dear Missionary Ventures Family,

We are so thankful for you and the Missionary Ventures family around the world.

One of the areas in which I am committed to being more effective is in communications.  I would really like to talk to each one of you personally over a cup of coffee but I will do my best to share my heart and what God is doing within Missionary Ventures

We are often praying for the field and offices.  If we were to ask you today, “What are your key issues right now,” I imagine for some of you it would be survival with all the challenges you’re facing.

When we are under pressure, it saps our spiritual and emotional health. For us personally, we have been learning to have margins and boundaries in our life and ministry. We want to encourage you today to develop a way of life that protects and strengthens your marriage, family, relationships, and your ministry.  There is freedom and joy in having standards and living within them.

God has done everything in Christ. The ministry that we are called to is not ours at all, but His. God through His son, Jesus, has provided everything you need to rest in Him.

Jesus said, “Come to me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.  Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 18: 28-3

Jesus promises us inward rest free from anxiety. He is well capable of taking care of us. He is a gentle and humble leader who will meet our needs.  He knows what we can handle and will direct us as we come to Him.  He will show us what a manageable way of life is for us personally.

Our day of prayer and fasting is the first Monday of every month.  God is answering prayers around the world.  Let’s keep pressing on and allowing God to have his way with this ministry.

The Office Directors and Regional Coordinators will be meeting August 17th-21st for a time of prayer, worship, fellowship, and building unity within the ministry.  Please keep us in prayer that we will come together in agreement with the direction we are heading in as a ministry.  Also, pray for us to be clearly able to communicate who we are and what God has called us to do around the world.

Have you been able to look at the new website? It is still being touched up but eventually we will have blogs for all the field coordinators, videos from teams, and a forum.  

Linda and I are so honored to be ministering among many heroes of the faith around the world. Thank you for your love and support and for being faithful to the call of God on your life. 

We love and appreciate each one of you,

Glen and Linda Dubois
