Mark and Kit Murphy

June 2019 Ministry Update


Dear family and friends,

We have been in America for about a month and it has been a wonderful trip and time for us! Ephraim adjusts to things very well. We are located in Indiana, PA living at the townhouse of Mark's parents. We have already traveled about 2,800 miles to attend to Alliance Council in Florida as well as visiting many good friends and supporters. We would like to give thanks and praises to the Lord for many things, especially for providing a car for us to use, a place for us to live, and a chance to meet our family and our friends/supporters so far. We are looking forward to meeting many others as much as we can during this short time.

Ephraim's highlight of the trip so far was to play in the snow and build a snowman on Mount Hood in Oregon.

He also enjoys helping Mommy get our display table ready and giving out dried mangoes that we brought from Thailand.

The highlight for both of us was being commissioned as International Workers with the C&MA at General Council on June 2nd which was also the same day as Kit's birthday. It was a great joy for us! Praise the Lord for His love and faithfulness! Thanks so much to all of you who pray for us and support us and rejoice with us in what God is doing in our lives. Please continue to pray for God to guide and help us to serve Him effectively in Thailand and that through Him there will be much lasting fruit.

We thank God and the Alliance family for opening the door for us to speak in 6 churches in Western Pennsylvania. We are glad to be able to share about the ministry of the Center for Leadership Development (CLD) and our involvement. We are also trying to raise funds to buy a car for Kit to use when Mark travels to visit CLD centers throughout the northeastern part of Thailand. Our goal is to raise about $17,500. Please pray that God will lead people to give towards this goal! Thank you very much for your love, prayers and sacrificial giving to us and to the Great Commission Fund! We love you!

May God's blessing be upon you always,
Mark & Kit and Ephraim
