We are told in the New Testament that "He (God) has made every nation of men to live all over the earth and has determined their appointed times and the boundaries of where they live..." (Acts 17:26). We sense the Lord is moving our boundaries to Houston in an real tangible way. We put our house on the market, and in only five days it sold. That can only be seen as the work of God's hand in a time when the average house takes six months to sell. We are excited about being servants in a new harvest field of over 340 people groups.
Please continue to pray with us:
1. Our time line for enlisting a financial support team has greatly been shortened by the sell of our house. Please pray for financial supporters to join us in this mission effort of reaching the nations in Houston, Texas.
2. Pray for our emanate move to Houston, Texas. It is looking like Melanie and the kids will move mid-February as soon as the sell of the house closes. I (Buddy) will follow a few weeks later.

Dear Nations Church Planting Network Partner,
2014 has been an awesome year. Many souls have come into the Kingdom, we finished our church plant, and an especially joyful note, the Lord blessed us with a new family member. We believe 2015 is going to be an even better year with the start of a new ministry.
We are moving in May to Houston, Texas to begin multiple new church starts among the 340 people groups living in America's fourth largest city. We are beginning a missionary church planting mobilization ministry that with focus on making disciples among the International Community. This mobilization ministry is being called Nations Church Planting Network. The Lord has given us a vision for seeing at least 50 new nations churches started in the next 20 year. This can only be done by the Lord. When it happens, no one person will be able to take credit for this will certainly be a God thing! On the other hand, the Lord is bringing the nations to our door. Missions is no longer just overseas, but in our own backyard and we need you as a partner.
Over the next five months, the Brents are asking the Lord for ministry partners. Before we make our physical move in May, we hope to enlist at least 80% of our team. We need prayer partners, financial support partners, short-term volunteer teams for 2016, and short-term and long-term field partners. Would you consider joining us? The Lord has given us our first field partner and field church sponsor. We need many more. If you are able to join as a partner, please email me at email@example.com. We are so excited about the future! The most diverse city in America is calling! Let's go!
Happy New Year!
Buddy, Melanie, Ashley, Adam, Masuod, & Avery
