  • KC Prayer Bus Makes Inaugural Journey

    Clint Hall, The Sending Project's Director of Church Relations,

    is the driver of the Prayer Bus Ministry. (figuratively and literally!)

    KC Prayer Bus Makes Inaugural Trip

    The Sending Project (TSP) Prayer Bus made its inaugural journey around the KC metro area on Saturday morning April 26, stopping at Paseo Baptist, The Oasis, and Indian Creek Community Church. The Prayer Bus is a unique element of The Sending Project prayer ministry...which overall is focused on praying for the mission ministries of KC-area churches and their mission partners.

    Marcia Neuenswander, Sending Project Prayer Team Coordinator, reflects on the Prayer Bus adventure: "It was overwhelming to be a part of so many prayers being lifted up for such a great number of KC churches and their mission ministries. It was such a unique and beautiful experience to actually pray together on the bus and as a group right there on the property of three different churches."

    The group on the Prayer Bus had a great time praying at each of these churches and also talking and praying on the bus as they traveled from location to location.

    Pastor Gary Kendall (2nd from right, in the photo below), met the Prayer Bus at his church, Indian Creek, and prayed with the group!

    Stay tuned for the announcement about when the next Prayer Bus event will be!

    If you would like to join The Sending Project Prayer Team, please let us know by replying to this email and we will add you to the Prayer Team email list. As a TSP Prayer Team member, you will receive mission-related prayer requests via email.

    Expecting great things from God...

  • Perspectives Kansas City Area Classes for Spring 2014

    Perspectives on the World Christian Movement

    Are you ready for your life to be changed?

    See the world like Jesus does

    Perspectives is a great opportunity to see God's heart for all of His people.

    With Biblical, Historical, Cultural, and Strategic sections of the class, you will journey through our Father's love for every tribe and language and people and nation. Each week a different speaker shares how the Lord moves in this world.

    The course is organized by the US Center for World Missions and run by local teams every year all around the world. Perspectives is a 16 week college level course. It can be taken for college credit or at one of two non-credit levels - certificate, or key reading (audit). The course runs during the typical college semester but is probably unlike any college course you have taken. Enjoy worship, prayer, and teaching time every week!

    Kansas City will host three classes this spring - two full and one intensive (details below). If you have not experienced Perspectives, come join us at any of the classes for the first two weeks to see what the excitement is all about! Attend any two classes with no obligation to register or continue. And remember, alumni attend for free - so bring a friend.

    For promotional materials, questions, or more information, please contact Al Wilkinson at al@notsofar.net or 785-341-8557 or Sherri Thomas at sherrithomas@gmail.com. We have promotional flyers printed and available to help you promote Perspectives at your church. We would be happy to help you in your promotion efforts and we would thrilled to hear how you are promoting Perspectives.

  • Outside Showers Are Now Even Awesomer


    Learn more about the mission work of Lee and Brianna Buell at wesaidyes.org

    Nigel show­ing off our new out­side shower!

    A great rain­storm always brings the ques­tion: “Can we put on our suits and take a shower in the rain?” And who would say no to that when Lee and I are just as eager to get out there also.

    Until last week we had to use one of the down­spouts that came with the house. While this worked, it required a really good down­pour and stand­ing in a part of the gar­den that became a lake because of the rain. These down­spouts were also not con­nected with our cis­tern, so all of the water from the front of our roof was just falling on the ground.

    A team came down from Kansas City two weeks ago (made up of a few Hill­cresters and the rest were mem­bers of Macado­nia Bap­tist). We loved get­ting to know so many new peo­ple. An added plus is a group of the team helped Lee to install the rest of our rain-catchment sys­tem. The front down­spouts are now con­nected to pipes that drain into our cis­tern. They work GREAT. Before, we had to get a water truck to fill the cis­tern about every 3 weeks. Now it has been almost a month and it is still VERY full because of rain about every other day for the last week.

    Lee added a valve, right off our porch, so we can still take show­ers when it rains. As you can see in the pic­ture, it works great. We can turn the valve off or on, to direct the water either into the cis­tern or out the “shower head.“

    Lee also said that because all new shower heads in the states are restricted by law to 2 gal­lons per mintute, the shower we have now would be ille­gal because dur­ing a hard rain it’s eas­ily 10 times that amount.

  • Rapid Growth of The Sending Project Means Big Crowd at 4-Year Celebration!
