When my husband, Richard, and I were forced to leave the mission field in Ukraine due to a health crisis, little we did know that God would create many more opportunities to serve Him.
One of those is supporting missionaries like Jeff and Kathy Slaughter.
After we transitioned from Ukraine, we opened a medical practice; believing that through it, God would allow us to share our faith, our prayers, and our financial resources.
Over the years, He’s done that and more.
The call is still there. It just looks different.
God has blessed us with opportunities to serve on short-term mission trips to Bolivia, Peru, Slovakia and most recently on a trip to Ukraine to minister to those whose lives have been upended by the war.
We also have a heart to support missionaries with our prayers and finances – such as Jeff and Kathy as they equip and encourage worship leaders in the European church.
We met the Slaughters some 30 years ago while attending Cornerstone Church in Jackson, MS. The ministry of worship that God called them to has a special place in my heart.
Worship music is my lifeline.
Growing up in a troubled home environment, music was my refuge. Since I first began walking with Jesus, Christian music was – and is – a lifeline of truth, comfort, and inner healing.
More than anything else, praise and worship music has taught me, ministered to me, and moved me into the felt presence of God.
This is why it’s our privilege to support the Kingdom work Jeff and Kathy do in Europe.
We want others to know the experience of drawing near to God and resting in His presence through the powerful ministry of worship music.
The Slaughters’ mission to strengthen leaders means that more lives will be drawn into an intimate walk with our sweet and loving Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
And we are blessed to help make that happen!
Richard has worked as a physician for 30 years while Christi has had a counseling practice for 27 years. They live in Madison, Mississippi with their three children where they are active in their church, Livingston Fellowship.
