Dearest Support Family:
We have reached the half-way mark of our exciting year of missions in Japan & are continuing to pray through what the next chapter of ministry looks like for the Coopers. We have received much counsel and are currently thinking and praying through the vision of becoming full-time supported missionaries with an organization who would equip and mobilize us for long-term ministry that includes:
1) equipping individuals & churches in disciple-making through training, teaching & coaching
2) reaching our local community through personal disciple-making
3) mobilizing disciplers to short & long-term global missions
We have been invited by a missions organization to attend their leadership summit in Taiwan next month. This summit would provide Rachel & I the opportunity to receive leadership training, connect with individuals from the missions organization to determine if we are a fit & give us some much-needed time as a couple to discuss and pray through these options together.
Would you please pray along with us? Ask the Lord to give us clarity and wisdom in these decisions. Ask Him to open and close doors for us. Ask Him to keep us seeking His face through this process. Will you also pray that He provides the $1000 needed for Rachel & I to attend the Missionary Leadership Summit in Taiwan February 13-16? If you would like to help provide this need, please contact us directly at CoopersOnAMission@Gmail.com
We love you and are thankful for your ministry partnership. Your love, encouragement, prayers and support are received gladly as gifts from the Lord.
in the grip of His grace,
Troy & Rachel Cooper
