Orchard-ites Going with IMPACT!
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying, ‘Who shall I send, and who will go for us?’ And I said, ‘Here am I; send me.” Isaiah 6:8
Joseph Parcher, Karen Rittenburg, and Richard Smith will be representing Orchard Community Church this summer with IMPACT. Joseph will be going with the Honduras team, while Karen and Richard will go with the team to Turkey. Their trips will be from June 24th to July 11th and will include cross-cultural training and team building.
This is only possible with the spiritual and financial support of the entire church family. These are not just going, but being sent by Orchard, and will be carrying your love and care with them bodily to Honduras and Turkey. IMPACT's credo is to send participants as “learners, servants, and storytellers”, so we can expect they will be learning about their respective churches and serving as your representatives. Likewise, we know that when we send people, they return to help all of us mature and grow in our faith through their testimonies of what God has done! The storytelling does not just happen abroad but will continue here.
Their storytelling has already begun. Please read the following testimonies of how God has called them, and consider how you can support them being sent.
