James Osinski

Praise God! James Osinski has just passed the 50% mark in his fundraising for his ministry with DiscipleMakers and has been given his placement. James will be serving on the Lehigh Valley West team, which reaches Kutztown University and Muhlenburg College.

“I’ve been learning just how much God is the one driving the results," James said. “I could do all the right things, but God has something to teach me, so he’ll time my progress the way he wants. My job is simply to pray, discern, and keep working. I’m excited to apply this lesson to campus, because the same principle applies.”

Pray for James, that he would persevere towards his ministry funding goal and his next ministry assignment in the Lehigh Valley.

Felicia Gater

Felicia Gater will join DiscipleMakers' Development team when she reaches her ministry funding goal. (The Development team advances DM's mission by selecting and onboarding outstanding missionaries, providing excellent support-raising training, and raising organizational support for ministry expansion.)

“As I’ve been raising support, God has been teaching me that I may be limited by myself or others—but God is not," Felicia said. “And I have learned to trust in God’s goodness and faithfulness even when I don’t like what He is doing. One reason I am excited to join the Development team is that it will give me the opportunity to care for our newest staff members by helping to root them in Scripture and the character of the Lord.”

Praise God for drawing Felicia to such a crucial department of our ministry, and pray for her as she continues to raise support. She is currently at about 45% of her monthly goal and eager to begin in Development once she reaches 100%!

God has called us into ministry with DiscipleMakers and we couldn't be more excited to see the multitudes proclaim ‘Jesus Christ is Lord!'"

Now that they have reached this milestone, the Sifords will transition to their next ministry assignment in the DiscipleMakers Headquarters. There, Alex will serve in the HR department, and Janáe in the Finance department.
