We are pleased to introduce Rev. Michael Seufert as he begins his labors at Mission OPC in St. Paul, MN. Michael and his wife, Samantha, both grew up in the south suburbs of Chicago, IL where they attended the same church. After Michael earned his M.Div. at Westminster Seminary California, the couple moved to Washington, D.C. where Michael completed an MA in Semitic Languages and Literature, a PhD in Biblical Studies, and took his first call at a local PCA church. The Lord blessed the Seuferts with two children while living in D.C.– daughter, Maisie (2), and son, Michael (6 weeks). When the end of his PhD was in sight, Michael began considering calls to full-time ministry. In the Lord’s kind providence, he brought themback to the Midwest.
Pastor Andrew Canavan shares that Corona Presbyterian Church (CPC) is in the midst of a Christianity Explored Sunday evening Bible study. Theirgoal with this study is to reach out to neighbors with a clear gospel presentation and for the people of the mission work to be refreshed and equipped to faithfully share about Jesus.

Evangelist Chris Cashen writes, “Biblically, we know that God is at work in every place and at all times. And we also know that God works out His holy and loving providential plan in His own good and perfect time. In the past few months, the Lord has been pleased to show us a bit of His work in the hearts of men. In August and September, the Lord gathered several families and individuals to begin not one, but two Bible studies in Clarkston. The first is being led by our dear brother, Pastor Melaku, from Ethiopia. This particular study, which is taught in Amharic, includes refugees from Eritrea, and one granted asylum from Ethiopia. At the same time, the children of those in the Amharic study are taught in English. What a joy it is to know
During the last part of this year, the Houston ministry has taken on a wonderful communal character. As the denominational disaster relief committee started pulling back, the Houston churches (Providence, Cornerstone, and Good Shepherd) all joined together to continue working on disaster relief. Evangelist Nick Lammé says, “Praise the Lord with me, not only for the more efficient coordination among our churches, but also for the testimony of Christian unity that it shows to the world.” Nick also gives thanks for the Bible study they started in September in East Houston. They have been studying “How to Read the Bible” and it has been well attended. One family in particular has shown very serious interest. Please pray for Wendy and Patrick,
