We're happy to report that Chris Ebersole has reached his support goal for his ministry with DiscipleMakers! In just a few short months he will be serving on campus for the fall semester on our Susquehanna Valley team.

Chris told us, “Five years ago I was a freshman in college that didn’t know the Lord, and God used DiscipleMakers’ staff to show me what it truly means to follow Him. I can’t wait to be on the other side now, reaching out to freshman students and others this fall who need to be reached with the good news about Jesus in the same way.”

Throughout his support raising, Chris struggled with the loneliness of the task after being deeply involved in his college campus community. At the same time he also experience great joy in the opportunity to meet so many new people from different walks of life who were excited to aid in the work to make disciples of college students. “My view of God’s kingdom is so much bigger now, as I’ve seen people who have never heard of me or DiscipleMakers jump on board with our vision to make disciples,” Chris said.

Please praise the Lord with us, for His provision for Chris's ministry with DiscipleMakers, and pray that the Lord would aid him as he moves to a new home and begins his ministry on campus.

Alex & Janáe Siford have reached their ministry funding goal! God has provided the full amount needed for their ministry with DiscipleMakers. The Sifords had this to say about completing their fundraising season. “God continues to multiply His kingdom and we are thrilled to be key role players! 1 Samuel 12:24 says, ‘consider the great things the Lord has done for us.’ As we consider our season of fundraising and those He brought on our support team, we see this as clear evidence of God's faithfulness to us and this great mission. 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. Please join us in praising the Lord for Alex & Janáe, and pray that He will continue raising up laborers for the harvest field!
