91 cr nov09 A Note from the PresidentEleven years ago Students International desired to expand beyond Guatemala, the only country they had ministered in, and they visited the Dominican Republic. In God’s timing and in his will, the SI team met Lowell and Cheryl Troyer and began ministry in the DR under their leadership. Soon some of their friends joined them in this kingdom work and the leadership team of the Troyers and Nate and Maggie Slabach was complete. The two couples are reminiscent of how Jesus sent out his disciples in groups of two. This pair of families began a decade of adventure, remarkable by the parents’ humility and obedience. Their children were young and grew up as best friends, involved in the ministry at many levels. Today they are all dynamic believers starting new lives of their own. Meanwhile, the four parents are continuing to work together as a team and the entire DR ministry reflects them. What a beautiful picture of how it should be! Please continue to pray for them and their families as together they seek to be faithful in all they do.

Psalm 133:1 “How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity.”
