Dear Pastors & Praying Friends,
Since the beginning of September, when we returned to America for furlough, we have been in twenty different churches and travelled about 11,000 miles. It has been a bit of an adjustment for us to be on the road so much, but we are getting the hang of it.
It has been so great to catch up with our family and friends, many of whom we have not seen in nearly six years. Our children have really enjoyed spending time with grandparents, cousins, uncles, and aunts.
At the beginning of the month of October, we were up in Ohio and Pennsylvania. Last week, we were down in Georgia, and now we are back up north until the beginning of December. It will be nice to spend Thanksgiving with my family and then Christmas with Teri’s family.
We are planning a mission trip next summer for any who are interested. The trip will be July 26 – August 5, 2013 and will cost $2000 all-inclusive. The purpose of the trip will be to help us with an evangelistic meeting in Derry as well as learn about the needs and opportunities for the gospel in Ireland. You can find out more information here.
We are excited about the new missionaries that are headed to the UK and Ireland in the future. One family that is going to be working closely with us is the Chris Waye family. They are currently at about 50% of their support and are hoping to leave by January 2014. Let me encourage you to pray for them and consider having them into your church.
On December 31 – January 2, 2013, our home church is hosting a special missions retreat in Pigeon Forge, TN called the Our Generation Summit. This is a great event for all ages to learn more about being involved in world missions. Let me encourage you to attend for a real challenging and refreshing time.
Thank you for praying for the work in Northern Ireland. The church recently moved into a new building that will create some exciting ministry opportunities. Pray for the leaders in the church and pray for the church to grow. Pray for God to raise up national leaders all across Ireland. Thank you for your faithful prayers and support.
– Travis & Teri Snode
