We were recently commissioned as missionaries for Global Strategy to Europe and the Middle East. For those unfamiliar with this tradition, it goes all the way back to the Book of Acts in the Bible.
In Acts 13:2-3 it says, “While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.” So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.”
So, on June 29th, at the Church of God Convention, our family was commissioned – prayed for and sent out – to do the work we have been called to do in Europe and the Middle East.
It is a tremendous affirmation to our family that we have a movement of believers, made up of many churches, who are sending, supporting, and encouraging us along the way.
We know that it is through the Holy Spirit and the Body of Christ, the church, that we are called and sent to do this work.
If this is something you (or your church) would like to pursue in partnership with us, follow the link to our bio page at www.chogglobal.org/nstatman. There you will find more information about our ministry and an opportunity to partner with us!
