Happy New Year - (in Perisan/Farsi) Sale no mobarak!!!


2018 Was a year of establishing a ministry focus for us. But also a foundational truth settled deep inside us that God is our sustaining grace and Provider to do what we are called to! This life doesn't come without its challenges and troubles but we know this, that some must go and some must send. We thank you for your sending support and prayers for us to Go and make great our wonderful Savior and King across the earth!

Each new year we pray and seek the Lord for vision and guidance in the new seasons! We love to hear from Him, how He will reveal another part of His truth and character to us in different ways throughout times of struggle and in every victory! 
For now, we are home in Texas with family and friends and have rested up from our long flight!
We are well and blessed and are enjoying it here for the holidays.

Our website has a totally new look and new content!
Check it out below!

A new year means a new start!
Will you pray about how you can be involved in our ministry to refugees this year?
In December was awesome to watch mid-eastern refugees see the gospel presented with the nativity story for the very first time in their lives, all in their native language.
We continue to pray for every one them to come to the truth and revelation of God's love and grace. Many new refugee believers in Athens are serving and loving the new ones coming in and we were blessed to get to know several of them. We get to stay in contact with them from around the world! So thankful for technology that allows that friendship to continue!

Currently.. we are working to learn the Farsi language. 

Other opportunities are arising for us to work with refugees with our connections in Colorado Springs. Please pray for these things to unfold as we step into these opening doors!

The next move for us is to secure our family a home base to travel from. Our children and family need this stability and peace of mind. 

Thank you for joining us in prayer over all these matters, for the Lord's direction and provision for buying a house.

May this New Year season bless you and bring you joy as you look ahead in faith and with hope, adoring our King, to whom all this is for!

Happy New, the Bailey crew

I lift up my eyes to the mountains-
  where does my help come from?
My help comes from the LORD, 
  the Maker of heaven and earth.
Psalm 121:1
