Excerpts from the quarterly letter:
“Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ and friends around the world. Greetings in the name of our wonderful Savior Lord Jesus Christ. First of all, we would like to thank you all so much for your faithfulness in supporting us and praying for us. We know in our hearts that without you dear people we would never be able to be here in Sweden and have our own home for the first time in our lives. I would like for all you dear churches to know that we pray for you and thank God everyday for you.
I will finish this time with asking you all to pray especially for Masayo and my Mother. Masayo has had a hard time this summer with her asthma, and on top of that she had a bad case of pneummonia. She was on penicillin and an extra cortisone in addition to her daily medicines. One day she passsed out on me. It was scary but by the grace of God, I was able to help her start breathing again. She will have a check up with a specialist in August, so please pray for her. We were able to bring Mother here to visit our house this summer. She is getting to the point that she needs a lot of daily care, so please pray with us in this matter
Truly with love Bro. Karl and Masayo
Because Christ loved us first”

Excerpts from quarterly letter (download here):
The last few months we have seen struggles all around, as far as those we are trying to minister to and loved ones; Luke 22:31 calls it sifting. I am so thankful for the grace that the Lord gives His servants. We have been careful to be encouraging without being overbearing. I am not sure I have got that all balanced out well, but I am thankful the Lord has chosen to use us in whatever ways He chooses.
What is the greatest blessing is that these things have not taken us by surprise. Gwen and I were talking some time ago, praising the Lord for how He’s brought us through some difficult times. We are grateful for the times of rest and refreshment that come after the trials that bring such thankfulness. Almost in unison we said, “Better get ready for the next round” and we were laughing and rejoicing in the faithfulness of the Lord.
In His care
Bro. Rey Dove”
Faith Purpose Missions
Thru Faith Purpose Missions, we encourage our families, no matter the size, to be willing to adopt a missionary and their family which we support. We encourage support financially but likewise prayerfully and socially thru emails, letters, phone calls, birthday cards, etc. We have seen many deep and long lasting relationships develop between our members and the missionaries they support.
