Nils & Erika have served in missions with the Covenant since 2003. Most of their time has been in Mexico. They are currently on a two year home assignment living in the Twin Cities with their three children. They continue to connect with and serve the ministries in Mexico where they have been involved (now made easier through zoom). Nils continues to serve with Covenant World Relief and Development with a special focus on Latin American partners and is expanding his role there, while Erika continues to stay connected with MAEM (Ministering to the Abused and Exploited in Mexico) and facilitated a designed discipleship cohort in Spanish with women from Mexico this summer. They both continue with graduate studies at North Park Seminary/University as well. We look forward to having Erika come and share an update with us on Sunday, October 10.
Operation Christmas Child
Since 1993, Samaritan’s Purse has distributed over 169 million shoebox gifts to children around the world through Operation Christmas Child. SRCC has supported OCC since 1997 and are glad to take part in this again this year. Brochures and boxes will be available on September 26. The brochure gives guidance on filling your box. Your filled boxes can be brought back to church anytime by November 14. Thank you for your support of this program that brings gifts of joy to needy children at Christmas along with the gospel message.
