Hello Ministry Partners,
I hope this email finds you doing well and staying warm! Here in Minnesota we just had a blanketing of snow that made the commute a little interesting. So it looks like we'll be having a white Christmas!
It has been an exciting Fall at GoCorps! When I joined the staff in 2015, there were 7 full-time GoCorps staff. This past fall, we had 12 full-time staff coaching, mobilizing, and preparing a new generation of young people who are following God's calling on their lives to go to the Nations to spread the Gospel!
For 2018 we have nearly 100 placements available, which is the most we have been able to list! From serving as a Dairy Farm Manager in Eastern Europe, to being a Medical Specialist in Southeast Asia, to being a Refugee Ministry Worker in the US, we have exciting and diverse opportunities! Currently we have 33 completed applications and another 40 students working on them. We are praying for 50 Goers this year with our first application deadline, March 1st, quickly approaching.
Since this is kind of my Christmas card, below are a couple of recent pictures of the Nelsons for your enjoyment. Olivia is in first grade and loves everything about school. Eden loves playing anything with her sisters and friends. Brielle is learning words at an amazing rate! And Jackie and I try to keep up with all three of them!
As 2017 comes to an end and I "count my many blessings" please know that you are one of the many! You have played such a huge role in my ministry to reach the unreached for God's Kingdom. Thank you for your prayers and support throughout the year!
Mike & Jackie
Olivia, Eden, & Brielle
