CMF International – Dillard
CMF is involved in transforming lives and communities in Spain through the ministry of En Vivo, a Globalscope campus ministry. En Vivo (Live!) focuses on sharing Christ in this post-Christian European context through a relational, incarnational ministry. Located in Salamanca, home to one of the oldest and most international universities in all of Europe, En Vivo attracts students of all nationalities with fun activities and life-changing Bible studies. European and American interns and exchange students join the team each semester to meet new students and draw them into the community. En Vivo exists to simply love students and connect them with Christ.
Here are a few of the ways the team ministers to college students in Salamanca:
- Lead small group Bible studies and leadership groups.
- Connect with students via a weekly large group event to experience Christian community and worship.
- Host weekend retreats and fun activities.
- Provide a weekly English night for the university community.
- Engage students in a yearly service project with Habitat for Humanity.
Paul & Crystal Henry
PO Box 116284 Atlanta, GA 30368-6284
Mission to the World
Children: PJ, Calvin, Adele, Elizabeth
Paul and Crystal were called at an early age to serve the Lord overseas as missionaries. Paul’s long-held desire is to see many churches planted cross culturally. Paul and Crystal met at Toccoa Falls College in northeast Georgia where Crystal received her B.S. in cross-cultural studies. Paul later transferred to Anderson University in South Carolina where he received his degree in liberal studies. The Henrys served on a church-planting team in Bangkok, Thailand for four years with Mission to the World before returning to the U.S. so Paul could attend seminary. Paul graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in spring of 2012. The Henrys with their four children are now church planting in southern Thailand among the Buddhist and Thai Muslims. Please pray for the Henrys as they work to begin a church-planting movement in this very unreached area of Thailand.
George and Martha Mixon
World Harvest Mission, Box 1773 Village Market, Nairobi 00621 KENYA
Children: Beth, Carrie, Jim, Nathan, Laura
Geore and Martha Mixon have served in Kenya since 1994. They first worked with the Maasai people on a church planting team where George served as a veterinarian focused on training in animal health care. After George completed seminary, the Mixons returned to Kenya in 2004 to join Serge’s church planter training team. After a couple of years he narrowed his focus to training in Bible storying. In addition to this, George also now leads the Nairobi team. Martha’s primary ministry is in the home, but also serves through leading and encouraging the women on the Serge team, and in doing women’s ministry through International Christian Fellowship. Their oldest daughter, Beth, is working in Greenville, and Carrie is a student at Covenant College. Jim is in college at Belhaven, and Nathan and Laura are at Rosslyn Academy in Nairobi.
Mission to the World
Although Emily grew up feeling a tug towards missions, that calling took many forms over the years. After graduating from Clemson University, Emily became an intern for Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) at Georgia Southern University for two years. This opportunity allowed her to work with college girls through mentoring and Bible study. Once she completed her internship, she began teaching special education courses at a middle school in Greenville, SC, where she taught for three years. During this time, she still desired to pursue full-time missions overseas, but did not feel called to a particular place.
That changed in July 2013. That summer, Emily interned with MTW in New York, where she was connected to Cambodia. When she returned to Greenville, she continued to read about and pray for Cambodians and steadily fell in love with a people she had not yet met.
In August 2014, Emily served with Mission to the World Cambodia as an 11-month intern. She ministered to university students at one of the city church plants in Phnom Pehn while serving regularly with a locally run organization called Precious Women. This organization works with sexually exploited women through outreach and aftercare.
She will return to Cambodia for two years in 2016.
