KEVIN & WENDY CASE

Kevin’s main role on the Tepehuan team is Bible translation and church planting. The portions of the Old Testament needed for teaching creation to Christ, are in the hands of the Tepehuan people.

When he completes 1, 2, 3 John and Jude the drafting will be complete.

We praise God for your lives, for your commitment to His Word and Work and for your loving care and faithful prayers and financial support in the ministry we carry on. We’d appreciate your prayers as we are looking for opportunities to share the need and present the challenge in the Kansas City area. Please also pray the Lord may rise up more believers interested in partnering with us, as well as wanting to serve the Lord as missionaries serving in Mexico.

Missionaries serving in the USA play vital roles on the church planting team, such as training, accounting for and transferring gifts, recruiting missionaries and informing and involving churches and individuals. Like those who serve overseas, USA missionaries are responsible to raise financial support to pay their salary and ministry expenses, looking to God, trusting only in Him to provide through His people.
