Our Missionaries
 

We have direct relationships with missionaries in three different countries:  Chenoa Stock in Peru and two of our own members, who are serving anonymously in an area of southeast Asia where it can be life-threatening to be a Christian. Our connections with these missionaries include both financial and prayer support. Here is a little information about each of them: 

Chenoa Stock

Chenoa Stock serves in Peru as delegations and partnership coordinator for PERUSA, a new program of the Joining Hands Peru Network. Through this program, she works with PC(USA) delegations to foster partnerships with our Peruvian covenant partners, the Evangelical Church of Peru (IEP) and the Joining Hands Peru Network.

 

Chenoa organizes, accompanies, and interprets for visiting delegations, helping to ensure that these visits reflect the mutual mission priorities of the partners. She sets up in-country logistics, assists in planning itineraries, and works with trip leaders and the communities that are visited by the delegations.

 

The First Presbyterian couple
A couple from our congregation has worked for Wycliffe Bible Translators for a number of years. For number of years, they devoted their time to translating the scriptures into a certain Native American language. When that project was completed recently, they were asked to transfer to southeast Asia, where they are currently learning the language to assist in the translation process there. A portion of their time will be spent in areas that are incredibly dangerous if it becomes known they are Christians — dangerous both for themselves and for those they work with. Therefore, this description unfortunately has to be rather generic for reasons of their safety. However, they remain in our thoughts and prayers as they offer this work for the Lord.
