Do You Know Mike and Sheri Bedient?

Items Needed   |  Contact   |  gapFill.org
GapFill.org

Mike and Sheri Bedient have been personal friends of my husband Bill and I for 20 years.  Their children and our children have grown up together through the Bedient’s missionary years in Russia and at Arizona State University (ASU).  So, it is with a thankful heart of service to Jesus that I present to you these two needs that they currently have.

Mike and Sheri Bedient

Dental Need for Sheri
Sheri, has to have two of her teeth replaced and has no dental insurance…Ouch! As a way of thanking Sheri for her years of service to Jesus, can you donate toward her dental need? Learn more >>

Mike and Sheri Bedient

Sharing Jesus in Russia
As many of you know, Mike almost died on their 2009 Russia missions trip. While recovering in Berlin, Germany our Lord CLEARLY spoke to Mike, …”It is not your time to come home…I have significant other things for you to do.”

With this great news, Mike and Sheri are heading to Russia this summer and need your help. Would you help Mike and Sheri engage again in the great work that Jesus gave them to do in Russia.

Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us, to Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
Ephesians
3:20-21

Thank you in advance for your financial support and prayers for Mike and Sheri.

Warm Blessings.

Gapfill.org’s Impact!

Items Needed   |  Contact   |  gapFill.org
GapFill.org

Good Afternoon GapFill Partners,

At least it is the afternoon where I live, and I am enjoying a type of calm before the storm as I write this update. (My daughter gets married in 3 weeks…Yikes!)

I cannot put into words how blessed I feel to be part of this GapFill community who all feel such a passion for Christian mission work.  I do not believe you will truly know the impact you have had this side of heaven on Christian missionaries lives, and for that I humbly thank you.  Some of that impact starts with…

spacer.gif
Solar Panels

Solar Panels

heat needed for a widow missionary in a sensitive area of the world.

Enough money was raised to buy solar panels for this widow’s roof to supply her home with heat.  To give you an idea of the type of woman she is and how she spends the money entrusted to her from you, she told one of her fellow missionaries that she should have a quote for the solar project within the next few weeks. She mentioned many people say they can do it but really cannot.  She does not want to waste any funds until she is sure the work can be completed correctly.  But then she laughed and said, “Now we will be ready for summer”, which was kind of amusing.  But next winter she will be all the more thankful.  This type of stewardship is indicative of all of our GapFill missionaries.  Learn more >>

Preach the Word

Speaking of missionaries in sensitive areas…new for 2015 is Kevin Rodriguez – preaching the Word of God in a closed area of the world.  He will be gone one month traveling to different spots within this “closed country” preaching the Word and sharing the light of Jesus to the native people and orphans.

Northpoint Dorm

Northpoint Dorm

Another new project for 2015 is the Northpoint Bible College Repairs.  This may seem like a strange project to have on GapFill’s website but the winter in the Northeast United States was very severe this year (as in other parts of the US) and since Northpoint Bible college is the “breeding” ground for Christian missionaries it only made sense to help them in this need.  Learn more >>

Thanks again for the impact you are making this side of heaven,

As 2013 comes to a close, will you consider partnering with us and give a year-end, tax-deductible gift to help “fill in the gap” for Christian missionaries. These men and woman are living examples of Isaiah 52:7, “How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of the messenger who brings good news, the good news of peace and salvation, the news that the God of Israel reigns!” (NLT)

Here are some highlights of projects that still need funding. You can also visit the donations tab on GapFill.org’s website for a one-time gift or to set-up automatic monthly donations.

Helping Bobb Walk BetterHelping Bobb Walk

GapFill.org donors purchased for Bobb Lewis the Bioness Foot Drop Device back in 2012 after he suffered a stroke on the mission field. Bobb has made great progress with his foot drop device and is now ready for added stability and stimuli with a “thigh cuff” add on (L300 Plus). Please prayerfully consider donating to this worthwhile addition to Bobb’s current leg device as Bobb and Kayleen continue to serve Jesus in Malaysia.
