earlier this year, at their gate, when the country closed! They
relocated in another U.S city for a few weeks. They received a call at
9p one night, and, left the next day at 3p and arrived in their new country!
more families are at full monthly support. They are raising their
outgoing expenses as they also wait for their countries to open.'
two families (one on the east coast, one in the mid-west) were asked to

Missionary Discovery and Assessment
front row is Candidates - most of whom will be serving overseas. People
behind them include those who assessed candidates readiness to serve as
well as observes and
staff. These are people you are sending! In less than two years we
could be hearing about more lives completely transformed by the gospel.
After Missionary Discovery and
Assessment, depending on their readiness, they attend Launch. We're
excited to meet many of them next month! Please pray for the appointees
as they learn the history and heartbeat of Converge as well as how and
why Converge has strategically planned to reach the least reached.
Also, please pray for those of us presenting, the many staff who support
the training in crucial areas, and, of course, pandemic related technicalities.
"Let the peoples praise you, O God; let all the peoples praise you!"
