The Conrads have been a part of our GBC fellowship for the last few years. Rick served with the US Navy and Chelsea grew up at GBC. They and their children have worshipped and served in youth and children’s ministry roles. Chelsea participated in short-term missions activities both as a teen and as an adult. They are taking the next step in their transition to life beyond the Navy by joining Wycliffe Bible Translators for eventual service in the Cameroon. Pray for Rick and Chelsea as they take a month to visit family and friends before their training begins in October. They will be taking Wycliffe’s Intercultural Communications Course and Rick will connect with the Linguistics Software Development Team. Next year they will be studying French to prepare for life in Cameroon and in 2017 they will begin life in Cameroon.
Continue to pray with them as they build a support team in the next four months. They ask us to pray that God would make real the following verses for them – “You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.” Isaiah 26:3 “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.” Hebrews 10:24-25.
