Years of Service
Having served in Romania as a missionary teacher from 1990 to 1993, as education coordinator for Europe from 1995 to 1999, and as missionary teacher at European Theological Seminary in Germany beginning in 2006, the Friends have extensive experience in the field of education. Their tenure was cut short when Rodney developed serious physical health issues and they returned to the States, where he received treatment. He has recovered and for the last couple of years has pastored the Houghton Lake Church of God in Michigan.
Romanian Conference in Pennsylvania
At the end of last year, Rodney was privileged to attend the Romanian Conference in Reading, Pennsylvania. Since Bucharest, Romania, was their first missionary appointment, it was good for them to reconnect with some former students and faculty, and even meet new ones.
God Has Opened the Door
The Friends believe God opened the door of service for them when the World Missions Department asked them to consider a new responsibility in Africa … that of director of Discipleship College in Eldoret, Kenya, Africa. They now face three months of itineration to raise financial support so they may arrive in Africa by April 2017.
Happy, Happy, Happy
To say they are happy to return is an understatement. Africa will be a new area for them, but they are elated at the challenge. The Friends strongly believe in discipling and training men/women for the ministry to their own peoples.
