ABWE: Live Global
|We cannot believe it’s December already. It feels like while we still wait for the 4th of July, Christmas|
is about to sneak up on us! Thank you for your faithful prayer and support of our ministry. Everybody
has had a very difficult 2020 and yet with a move to another continent and ministry has certainly
changed things up for the Fletchers! Thank you for standing with us and showing such support of our
family as we pursue what God has for us and our ministry. Without you standing by our side, none of
this would be possible. We thank you and are so very grateful for you!
Personally, we are doing well. We thank God for good health and direction during this tumultuous
year. We have just completed our fifth move within the past twelve months but this one feels different.
We have been able to unpack our “stuff” this time and make it more home. Thank you for the many
who prayed as it took us 6 months to see our container shipped from Colombia which is never easy,
but with COVID, it had it’s faith stretching moments.
We have settled into the Winston Salem, NC area and Jason is already serving as a deacon at our
home church and helping to strategically set mission goals with the church leadership. We believe this
time at our home church will not only provide the necessary stability for our family but also give a
great support base for launching the new ministry.
Speaking of our new ministry, we have seen some neat
opportunities to move forward with Covid instead of
waiting for it to pass. We have spent our time trying to not
only meet and connect with our new team – calling Live
Global missionaries and national partners alike – but also
connecting to our existing support team and new
prospective contacts as well. This pandemic has been very
difficult for everybody to manage but especially for
churches. It has been very interesting to see how each
church handles this pandemic just a little differently and
that has allowed us to present both in person as well as via
technology such as Zoom. Please let us know if we can
serve and/or present at your church or meet for a cup of coffee to reconnect.
As we wrap our minds around the fact that the Fourth of July has come and gone and yes, Christmas
is just about here, we are making big plans for 2021. With international ministry, flexibility is very
important and so our plans are both aggressive and cautious at the same time. We have some trips
planned and a lot of online options for ministry planned as the future of this pandemic still remains
uncertain. Please pray for wisdom as we move forward.
Some plans include:
• Ministry leader connections – Live Global has about 15 national partners throughout Asia
whom we are looking to not only make connections for future ministry but also a neat
opportunity of mutual edification and discipleship.
• Ministry group partnerships – Live Global has not only national partners with whom we
work in other parts of the world but also some of their ministry groups. We desire to begin
relationship and partnership with some like GlaDios in Cuba, Living Hope Global in Honduras
and even a prospective pastoral training center in the Dominican Republic.
• Ministry trips – We are also working to go on a trip to Guayana to get our feet on the ground
with new friends that are working there. Another trip has been in the works to Paraguay with
which we can tremendously assist and develop connections.
• Colombia reconnections – While we have tried to maintain relationships via online methods
with our friends in Colombia, we realize that there is just nothing quite as productive as face to
face. We have been invited to an ordination in early 2021 and will try to travel as a family and
reestablish our connections.
Thank you once again for your partnership with our family. While we have seen adjustments in our
funded ministry partnerships, it has been much more stable than we anticipated. We thank God that
you have decided to continue partnership with our family and ministry despite this change in
approach. Thank you! We are eager to see how God uses this ministry to not only send the Fletcher
family throughout the world but even more so how God could use you to go with us! Please continue
to pray that God will give wisdom.
