11 Apr Kidd Family Prayer Letter – April 2019
Dear Friends and Co-Laborers in Christ,
As I was reading through Romans, this verse popped out at me. “Brethren, my heart’s desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that they might be saved.” Romans 10:1 Our family’s “Israel” is Cape Verde. It is our heart’s desire to see the people of Cape Verde saved. What people, near or far, has God impressed upon your heart to reach? What are you doing to reach those people? As Christians, we each have a responsibility to be actively involved in reaching the lost. Passively reaching the lost (ﬁnancially supporting others) is necessary, but according to Scriptures, we must all be actively involved in telling others about our great Savior.
These last couple months have been ﬁlled with many miles and many meetings. We have had the privilege and blessing to meet some wonderful people along the way. God certainly knows when we need encouragement and puts people in our path to give us that needed encouragement. I love how He puts things in motion to meet our needs even before we know of the need!
Our support level has seen some increases as well these last couple months. We are currently at 34% of the total monthly funds that we will need on the ﬁeld. We have 11 churches and 9 individuals/ families who support us on a regular basis. We are continuing to pray that God will lead us as we travel to people who He would have partner with us in reaching the people of Cape Verde.
There is a great opportunity for a Mission’s Trip this Fall if you are interested. The dates are September 20th – October 4th. The purpose of this project will be to distribute packets specially prepared for the schools on the islands of Fogo and Brava. There will be approximately 12,000 of these packets handed out to school children. This is an incredible opportunity to place the Gospel into the hands of those who have never heard it. If you are interested, please contact the Preach ofﬁce at: 417-935-2330.
On a related note, we are anticipating the shipping of a container with the materials needed for this project in the coming weeks. However, we are short on some funds. Each packet cost approximately $2 for the printing and shipping expense. Would you consider sponsoring 25, 50, 100, or more children to receive their very own NewTestament? If you would like to help on this project, any gifts can be sent to:

Thank you to all those who support us, either ﬁnancially, prayerfully, or both. It is much needed and appreciated. We may not know until we get to Heaven the impact that it has had.
