Our Dear Friends and Family,
Kyle and I want to say thank you so much for all your prayers, faithful support, and generous gifts. We have been a part of World Team for several years now but wanted inform you that our journey with World Team has come to an end.
Though we have grown to love World team like a family, this journey as pre-field missionaries has been a long, hard struggle. This past week, during orientation, as we learned more clearly the details of our assignment, the fight to press forward became more and more of a challenge. With Kyle continuing to work full-time, and us raising 3 little ones, the additional hours that we could supply to the ministry did not seem sufficient enough to effectively accomplish the goals that World Team has for The INN. After struggling through some hard questions, truly reflecting on our motives, and asking God to give us peace and direction, we decided as a couple to resign.
Your financial gifts that have accumulated over the past several years will remain with World Team to support their vision of glorifying God together to establish reproducing churches among the unreached peoples of the World.
If you have been financially supporting us, you will be receiving a letter from World Team this week with information on how to end your support. However, I would encourage you to prayerfully consider continuing to give to World Team as they truly have a beautiful heart and passion to reach the lost for Christ. You can read testimonies and learn more about them on their website at www.worldteam.org .
I’m sure as many of you are reading this, there may be mixed feelings of frustration, relief, confusion, or questions you may want to discuss. Please feel free to call. We would be happy to share our story with you or answer any further questions you may have. In fact, it’s been very refreshing and healing for us to express with family members and friends our sentiments and the story of how God has brought us to this conclusion.
Once again we are so thankful for your encouragement, support, and the sacrifices that you’ve made to support this ministry. Your gifts are not in vain and we trust that World Team will do an excellent job using them to lift up the name of Jesus all over the world.
With a heart full of love and gratitude,
Kyle and Carrie Strong
