Missionary Update: George & Kathy Schultz (North Carolina)

Dear Friends,

We have exciting news for you. The Lord is sending us record numbers of missionaries to train beginning in just a few weeks (June 9)! We have had to buy new chairs, tables, copier, furniture and a host of smaller things to prepare ourselves. Enrollment is full for the summer (35 adults and 28 kids) with a waiting list and almost full for the fall (already with 28 adults and 32 kids) and now we are actually considering creating an additional module for November/December. We are adding another full term in 2014 to accommodate the increase. We are excited about the opportunity presenting itself! We also have scheduled a retreat here for 60 people in November.

The trainees for the summer alone are headed to Colombia, Guatemala, France, Czech Republic, Germany, England, Ireland, Italy, Belarus, Poland, Egypt, Nigeria, Niger, Uganda, Kenya, Ethiopia, Congo, Zambia, United Arab Emirates, Cambodia, India, and Saipan.

With this big increase comes additional challenges especially for Kathy and the TCK program (Third Culture Kids). Please pray for creative use of space and additional teachers needed in January 2014.

We praise the Lord for church groups from Shannon Forest Pres. Church, Mitchell Road Pres. Church, Christ Reformed Church and other groups (PA and OH) and individuals who have come to help work on our campus. Volunteers are crucial to maintaining our large campus. We still need many more.

We have had some good vacation time recently so we are refreshed for the coming intense ministry season.

Please pray with us for the following:
1. Staff needs for our TCK program
2. Preparation of our facility for large numbers coming
3. Our own spiritual preparation and vitality
4. Additional volunteers for campus work
5. Increased financial support – it has been slipping due to life changes in some of our supporters

We are so grateful for all of you. Thanks for your interest, prayer, and giving on our behalf. Through your involvement together we will be touching the lives of many missionaries and impacting 22 countries of the world!

George and Kathy
