Amy Blair - Chiang Mai, Thailand

Sending Organization – Wycliffe Bibles Translators

 

blairAmy Blair grew up in Tremont, IL. She knew from a very early age that she wanted to be a jungle missionary, living in a grass hut and eating bugs. She dreamed of teaching national children how to read and write, but said she would never teach missionary kids in a big city. After graduating from Moody Bible Institute with her elementary education degree, God used many people and circumstances to convince her that she could indeed be a real missionary by doing what she grew to love, teaching missionary kids.

 

Amy has been teaching 3rd graders at Grace International School (www.gisthailand.org) in Chiang Mai, Thailand, since 2003. Grace serves over 600 students, primarily children of missionaries who are ministering in over 15 countries.

 

Besides her students, Amy also deeply loves the Thai people who live in and around Chiang Mai. She has been able to learn the Thai language so she can build many relationships with them by shopping at the local markets, hanging out with them, planting and harvesting rice in villages, and living with Thais from time to time. Her heart’s desire is that all Thais will soon have their eyes opened to the truth and turn their hearts to Jesus.

Brent & Connie Gregory - Tremont, IL

 

gregoryBrent and Connie Gregory, along with their sons Micah and David, served 10 years in northern Brazil with Project AmaZon (PAZ). PAZ is a nationally-lead church planting movement with a focus on the tens of thousands of unreached villages in the Amazon basin. All the Gregorys were involved in winning Brazilians to Christ and raising them up in their faith through the PAZ ministry model of small groups and one-to-one discipleship. Also, Brent and Connie provided administrative support at PAZ headquarters in Santarém, serving, among other areas, in personnel management and missionary care. They developed a passion for missionary care and a call to move more fully into that area of ministry.

 

In November of 2014, Brent, Connie, and David moved back to the United States. David has settled in Tremont and is beginning his journey to career and life as an adult. Brent and Connie are transitioning into a ministry focusing on missionary care and care of national workers and pastors. For most of 2015 they will be serving a missionary care internship at Heartstream Resources, one of the premiere ministries in member care and missionary care. Under their new ministry covering the Gateway Center for World Mission, they will be providing missionary and pastoral care in Africa, Haiti, Brazil, and wherever the Lord leads.

 

Brent, Connie, and David have transferred membership back to NCF. For the time being Micah remains in Brazil with his wife Lidiane.

They have the opportunity to reach students from the inner-city, international students from all over the world, art students, future politicians, CEO's, doctors, lawyers, teachers and so on. The Hepps coach and equip students to lead Bible studies, disciple and share Christ with other students and engage in spiritual multiplication.

Coryell Juchems – Eastern Europe

Sending Organization – Josiah Venture


coryellAfter going on her first short-term mission trip to Romania in 2007, Cory knew that her life would never be the same. During her stay she felt deeply impressed not only with how passionate people there were about living for Christ and making disciples, but also by the overwhelming need of broken people in need of a Savior in that region. Over the next several years, Cory kept returning to Romania and nearby Slovakia to serve alongside local churches and with Josiah Venture. In 2010 she served as a summer intern with JV in Slovakia. Realizing that God had begun shaping her heart after the vision and mission of Josiah Venture, Cory began asking if God was drawing her there to serve long-term. Over the next few years, she led two more short-term teams to Slovakia, after which she was asked by JV to officially join its staff. Cory is in Levice, Slovakia, where she works with a youth group in a local church and assists with summer English camps.
