Iowa, Here We Come!

We’ve had several bits of good news recently.

This biggest news for us this month is our trip to Iowa, October 22-November 4. We will share with several Bible study groups, churches, and individuals. We also have open time slots for individual meetings, and we have “open meetings” planned, too.

Our trip from Bettendorf back to Des Moines via Marion on Oct 30.

Here is where you can help. If you know folks who live near Des Moines or the Quad Cities, let us know and let them know. If they have any interest at all in missions or Africa, maybe they can make it to one of our meetings. I promise great dessert options will be available. If they would rather, we love meeting one on one with people, too.

A lot of people worry about being pressured to give. Let them know that we only ask people to pray about how God wants them to partner with us. We really are low pressure. So, don’t be afraid to refer your friends!  We love sharing the story of what God is doing!

  • Come to the Village Inn in Bettendorf (on State St.) on Monday October 27 at 6:30 PM.
  • Come to the Strutzenberg home Sunday November 2 or Monday November 3.  The exact time to be determined.  Call or text me for up to the minute updates on this.
  • Or call or text me for a one on one appointment: 303-564-7189.

Partnering with Canada

Our Fellowship International profile

Another bit of good news came in the form of international cooperation. Our organization, WorldVenture, has partnered with a Canadian organization, Fellowship International. This partnership allows Canadians to make tax-deductible donations to our ministry. If this is you, we have a link on the right (Donate, eh?).

Finances

We are officially at 45% and unofficially at 62%. Krystal and I rejoice to see how far God has brought us, but we also realize that we have about 1/3 of the way yet to go! We are praying that God opens doors for appointments, and that we get a stellar group of folks partnering with us in amazing ways.

Grace News

Grace is 2 years and 3 months old.  Loving the long locks, but praying every day for inner beauty to blossom.

Our little Grace continues to grow. We are actively potty training, and we have more dry diapers and princess underwear than wet ones when we go to the potty! She enjoys books, play-doh and coloring. She has fallen in love with jigsaw puzzles, and can do 24-piece puzzles all by herself. She has an excellent memory, and is our little parrot. She enjoys dancing and hopping. This week, she caught a frog all by herself for the first time. Even more, she has started praying for people. We are both so blessed to have her.

Pray for the Pastors

Shepherds of the flock of God must watch out for the wolves.

Over these next few weeks, the first year pastors are learning “Church 2” and about false teaching. Pray for both teachers and students.

Thank you all for your prayers.

  1. Nick and Krystal! Iowa is our home state! I’ll let my sister and some family know you’re there and share this link with them. Also, make sure you have a tenderloin. And AE Party Dip. And Smokey D’s BBQ. (B-Bop’s, Tasty Taco, and Chips if you get to Ankeny – Jodi recommends the reuben pizza) Your taste buds will wonder why you held out on them all these years. Delicious! Blessings as you travel!
