Lunow Update March 2014

FAMILY: GOD’S created and natural way for people to RELATE wth HIM and each other, to REFLECT HIM to each other, and to REPRODUCE more people with HIS ETERNAL PURPOSES being worked out in this world (Genesis 1-2; Revelation 21-22).

GRANDPARENTS: Physically, we have officially moved into this stage of family life! Eva Nicole Neethling was born to Ellie & Tyler, March 3rd, weighing 6 lbs. 5 oz., 19 in. long, and in good health—both baby and mother. We give thanks to GOD for HIS GIFT of LIFE. The 3 of them are currently living at: 3045 S. Harlem Apt 2w, Berwyn IL 60402 USA. But they will be moving to a different location by April 30th. Thanks for your many prayers on their behalf! Spiritually, we are also in a new stage of family grandparenting. The disciples or spiritual children with whom we participated in birthing & nurturing into God’s Family, continue to have children & grandchildren of their own there in the Philippines where we lived & worked for 16 years. There are now extended spiritual families ‘being the Body of Christ, the Family of God’, in natural New Testament ways among 6 provinces (3 in the southern island of Mindanao, and 3 in the northern island of Luzon). This past February while in the Philippines, we were able to visit, coach, and encourage those within 3 of these places (NOTE: Photos can be viewed on Facebook in the album “Philippine Family & Friends”); with plans to visit the other 3 locations the next time we are there. Lord willing, we would like to be on site in the Philippines at least once a year, depending on God’s provision. Please pray in extra measure (God’s wisdom, protection, & provision) for 2 Filipino families, the Quinones family in Mindanao, and the Bariuan family in Luzon, who are functioning as national missionaries in ‘organic ministry’. Again, thanks so much, dear support team, for your many prayers & generous gifts!

HOME: Like Abraham, we also by faith, look forward to our eternal home, “a city with eternal foundations, a city designed & built by God” (Hebrews 11:10). Meanwhile, our temporary homes have been in the USA, Philippines, & Indonesia, where God has called us to be. This May/June we’ll be leaving Bandung, and moving into a mission home in Shorewood IL for about a year. However, before we leave Indonesia, there are still 2 more trips planned to Papua where we will continue to help the national missionaries with their livelihood projects & ministries, along with coaching of organic ministry with a few interested families in 2 different locations. Updates to follow in time…

Serving Christ together with you,
Jon & Sherri Lunow
