Stateside Housing

It has been our pleasure to provide housing for missionary families on furlough, dealing with emergencies or significant family events, and engaging in additional training.  Through the generosity of many the ministry has grown from a small apartment to two fully furnished, single-family homes in the quiet neighborhoods of East Richardson.  Personal contact with those ministering in many areas of the world has broadened our vision of an Acts 1:8 church and stretched the tent stakes of our understanding of cross-cultural missions.
