Fila Ministry / Daughters of Hope

The Filas have been serving in South Asia since 2007 where they work among low income women and families.  They run a business and ministry called "Daughters of Hope" that offers free vocational training and employment opportunities to some of the world's poorest of the poor. Through Daughters of Hope, women in India and Sri Lanka learn vocational skills, receive full time employment and are exposed to the transformational power of the gospel of Jesus Christ. The Filas, along with a wonderful team of local believers, are able to offer free meals, child care and educational resources to women in Asia who are often overlooked and marginalized.

David English - Bread KSU

David English has been serving in full-time college campus ministry since 2021. He started working with Bread Coffeehouse at Kennesaw State University in July 2023, helping launch Bread's third coffeehouse location to-date. Bread Coffeehouse exists to create a space for students from all faiths and backgrounds to have a safe place to land, experience community and radical hospitality and bump into Jesus in the process. Everything is free for the students and intended to develop friendships with them and point them towards a life changing relationship with Jesus. Whether it's the house hours with coffee and fresh baked treats, small groups, service projects, the weekly dinners with storytelling, or the iced coffee outreach on campus, Bread Coffeehouse exists for students. Take a look at the latest video of the work God is doing across each of our three Bread locations!

If you want more information, take a look at Bread's website and Bread KSU page. And if you feel led, David would be honored to have you partner with and advocate for the work God's doing at KSU!

The Martins - Middle East

We are the Martin Family and we live in the Middle East. We are with a community of people believing for a youth movement in the largest unreached people group in the world! Day to day, we are setting up our prayer room, language learning, meeting and discipling young people.  Our family really has a heart for prayer and worship and being a resting place for the Lord in this nation, to prepare the way for His return.

You can partner in prayer with us for these things:

  • Young people in the Middle East to meet Jesus and be leaders in their generation!
  • Open doors amongst people of influence in our city
  • Protection and safety for our team

We have a giving account through our sending organization, YWAM at this link.

Jess + Will Owens, TeenStreet International

Will and Jess Owens serve with TeenStreet International, which is a ministry of Operation Mobilization. TeenStreet is a global discipleship movement reaching over 10,000 teenagers every year in 30+ countries and spanning six continents. Will and Jess partner with churches around the world to motivate, equip, and walk alongside teens to have a relationship with Jesus and reflect Him daily in their communities. They do this by providing in-person and online training for adults, inspiring them to plant small groups of teenagers in their own communities and equipping them with tools and globally themed Bible Studies that point teens toward loving and serving the least reached and vulnerable around the world. They also train teens to write Bible Studies on their own and use those studies to equip and inspire other teens. Since joining TeenStreet in June of 2020, Will and Jess travel outside of the US 8-10 times every year and have trained adults from over 30 different countries. 

 

How You Can Pray:

Pray for our kids as they continue to adjust to different cultures and deal with life while we are traveling. Pray for more opportunities for them to serve alongside us.

Pray for clarity and favor as we interact with so many different cultures and across so many languages. 

Pray that we are able to increase our monthly support team. We have hit a drastic decline in financial supporters since returning to the US from living overseas. We also have many projects and trips that require extra funds outside of our monthly support. Pray that those financial needs will be met as well.
