Mountain View supports many missionaries that have come from within the MVCC family. We thank God that they were willing to “be the one” and go share Christ with the world.
On Mission in America—Gary and Colette Uhler and Shelby Uhler
“Our goal is to glorify God by reaching out to churches across America with encouragement through the Holy Spirit. Each church will have different needs and there is no rule book, only the Word of God, and his Holy Spirit leading us. We are to be obedient even when we are not sure of the outcome. Most of all we are to love God with all our heart, souls and minds and to love others.” –the Uhler Family.
Gary, Collette and Shelby are currently traveling the US doing outreach and volunteering at Christian and Secular Festivals. This is God’s plan for 2011. They believe God will have something different next year. For a full schedule you can email them at OnMissionInAmerica@gmail.com, check out their website at www.OnMissionInAmerica.org or check them out on facebook at On Mission In America. They currently send a newsletter to over 400 families and churches. Their number one need is for you to pray for them. The other need is financial. Their operating expenses are approximately $3,500 a month and they have about 1,500.00 dollars covered. They thank you all for your love and support.

Violet works with YWAM Kona. She says, “It has been just over a month since moving my life from YWAM Maui to YWAM Kona. Whew. I am loving it so much! So thankful it is part of God’s plans for me to be here :-) God had some surprises for me when I got here, and tells me He has more… (how could I NOT be excited?!) My first surprise was being asked to join the leadership team for the Mission Builder ministry that is here. (go to www.uofnkona.edu, and search for mission builders” to get more details). As of now, there are about 90 Mission Builders that range from all ages and come from all over the world. Their purpose is to come for 1-3 months to serve the YWAM Kona base with whatever department that needs volunteers (kitchen, grounds, housekeeping, office work, etc). Since YWAM Kona is the biggest YWAM university in the world, volunteers are very welcomed to help keep the campus running.”

Jennifer Smith joined the YWAM staff and has been serving the many teams of young people who come through the YMAM base in Hawaii.
Jennifer is a member of the Discipleship Training School Staff (DTS Staff). This entails leading a school (DTS) for the six month program, three of which are spent in a lecture phase in Maui, and three spent leading a team to Southeast Asia on outreach. She says, “I was also privileged to co-lead a team of 15 students with two of the most genuine, caring, and FUN people I have ever met! Violet Stoltzfus, a Culpeper native, was my partner in discipling the 12 girls on our team by having one-on-one meetings with them each week, as well as grading their weekly journals, praying for them, challenging them, and walking beside them every step of the way throughout their DTS experience.” You can read more about Jennifer’s ministry in her regular newsletters by clicking on the link below.

He touched many lives for Christ during the years that he spent in Thailand with The MST Project. Please continue to pray for the ministry there, as there are many who need to know the saving grace of Jesus in their lives.
Thank you, Scott, for your faithful service and may God bless you in future ministries, wherever that may take you!
