July/August Thank You
Tue, 28 Jul 2015
Thanks so much for your recent gift to CityConnexx. Your gift this month really helped us as our staff travelled to Nashville, Louisville and Indianapolis to meet with our ministry partners, group leaders, and thousands of youth at a major conference. In addition July was a month full of sending mission teams across the US. Very busy summer season for us!
We have some exciting news to share with you. My wife Dr. Cheryl Cowles OB/GYN and I have been feeling the call to return to Kenya as full time missionaries at Tenwek Hospital where we served for two years early in our ministry. Our son Solomon was born there. He’s proud to be born in African and I’m proud to be an African father. We leave in October and would covet your prayers as we go to serve. Cheryl’s goal is help build a new maturity ward and start an OB residency program. I will be helping with the Chaplaincy School I founded 25 years ago.
We are also thankful to God for answering our prayers to bring a couple to take over the ministry. I want to introduce to our longtime friends and coworkers in urban ministry John & Tanya Thexton. Our Board of Directors elected John as our new Executive Director. The Thexton's move to Denver from Ft. Worth in August. John is passionate about urban ministry and helping equip, encourage, and empower urban churches. We worked together here in Denver and John took over the ministry in 2000 when Compassion called me to be their USA Director. We couldn’t be more excited to have the Thexton's join and lead our team.Read more about John in the following letter.
Our board and staff are very thankful to God to provide the perfect person to take this ministry on to even greater days ahead. And we want to let you know that your faithfulness to this urban outreach is so critical and appreciated. Without partners like you we could not do what we do to further His Kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven”.
When John moves to town he will be sharing more with you his vision for CityConnexx and YouthPartnersNET. I hope you’ll join us in continuing to be faithful supporters of this ministry to reach our cities for Christ.
