Todd and Jennifer Janes

Phnom Penh, Cambodia

Email:  tmjmjanes@gmail.com

Todd and Jennifer Janes are church planting assistants in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, working with a team of missionaries to help grow the church plant on the southern fringe of the city. The mission is to see this church expand in such a way that it leads to other church plants in Cambodia and eventually breaking through boarders to the surrounding countries of Laos, Vietnam, and Thailand. Currently, Todd and Jen are doing part-time language study, part-time ministry – building relationships with the locals to share the good news of Jesus, and seeking to fulfill their role in the Great Commission.

 

Jen Henning & Chernobyl’s Child

Belarus

Our Mission: To render humanitarian aid to children, families, schools and communities in Eastern Europe affected by the Chernobyl nuclear accident of 1986 through school and community projects as well as child and family sponsorship.

Purpose: To provide necessities such as winter clothing, vitamins, dental and school supplies, as well as food to children in the southeast part of the country of Belarus who do not receive this life saving aid from any other source.

Goal: To travel to Belarus each summer to purchase these vital supplies for kids in need. There are 36 kids on the sponsorship list, but there are at least 125 more just in the village of Lipova who could be significantly helped by receiving this same type of aid. Through child sponsorship we strive to restore… Hope for Chernobyl’s Child.

Ethan & Melissa Molseemolsee2014

Togo, Africa

I am looking forward to working with other missionaries and Togolese nationals to plant churches and train leaders in northern Togo. I will also be using my business background by working in administrative duties at the hospital and ministry center. I also anticipate teaching Bible and theology modules for national church leaders and leading Bible studies.   — Ethan

I am eager to use my training as a physician to share Christ’s love with those who seek medical treatment at the new clinic and hospital in Mango.  As a female doctor in a predominately Muslim area I especially anticipate opportunities to minister to the women in northern Togo and beyond.  It is refreshing to see both spiritual and physical needs addressed and to witness lives changed forever by the power of Christ.  –Melissa
