God has providentially put together a church planting team. Last Sunday, Andrés officially accepted the Antofagasta church’s invitation to serve as a pastoral intern for the next two years. THIS IS AN ANSWER TO PRAYER!!

Mark and Bekah Perry will be moving to Chile at the end of Dec. and will also join the Antofagasta church planting team in early 2018. THIS IS ANOTHER ANSWER TO PRAYER!!

We give praise to Jehovah Jireh for His provision OF these two couples and FOR these two couples to live and serve in Antofagasta.

We can’t wait to see what God will do in and through our teammates.

Your missionaries, 

David and Kristi Flinck, Jordan, Ben, Kaylee, and Lukas

January 2018

Urgent Prayer Request


Please join us in praying for one of our homes in India. It was closed down unexpectedly by the Indian government. They are adding new regulations to their group home requirements, and these changes will be difficult for our foreign partners to make.


Please pray for this situation, since we are still assessing the ramifications of the sudden changes.


Prayer and Praise!

We are glad to have Kaitlyn (left) back in our Elkhart home. She was home for Christmas break and needed some extra time at home due to an illness.

Please pray for her as she continues her recovery. Pray that she will adjust well to being back in school and group home routines.



Please join us in praying for upcoming ministry travel:


-Bill & Kathy to Liberia

-Bill, Kathy, and Jeff to India


These trips will be happening soon. Please pray for safe travel. The trips to visit our foreign partners are valuable times of helping best care for our children overseas. Join us in asking God for His direction and leading.



Houseparents needed!

Thank you for praying for us.  Bill Brittain  President
