This is a very exciting time as we step out in faith to do what God has put on our hearts! We are taking our family to the mission field! We will need partners to help us get there and to fulfill the outreach and evangelism that He has called us to.
Sandy’s teaching salary will cover our housing and health insurance, as well as pay for Sydney, Annie, and Claire to attend the same school that I will be teaching in, but we will have additional household expenses as well as travel expenses while in Europe. We will also have financial need for outreaches, crusades, and ministry to pastors and churches. In addition, we have set a goal of sowing into the school where Sandy will be working monthly! The school raises funds every year to pay teachers and cover operations. We are committed to giving a faith seed every month into the International Christian School of Vienna. We believe in the mission of the school and what God is calling us to there. Your donations will also help us meet this goal.
We are believing for at least 80 monthly partners (individuals or churches ) to sow between $25 to $100 monthly. We are asking you to prayerfully consider becoming a partner with us. If you feel led, will you fill out a partner card and sign up for contributions by going to http://bit.ly/sirattgiving
Josh will officially be a missionary under Rhema where he attended Bible College. Rhema will be able to send all donations to us directly while in Austria, and will send you and all of our partners a tax deductible donation letter at the end of the year. With Rhema’s years of experience and oversight for hundreds of missionaries around the world, we know we are in good hands!
We also need partners that will consider sowing one time gifts now and throughout our time in Europe. You can do this at the same link.
Know that your financial gift is a seed planted in good soil as we reach the lost and empower the believers in Europe!
Matthew 9:35-38 in The Passion Translation says, “35 Jesus walked throughout the region with the joyful message of God’s kingdom realm. He taught in their meeting houses, and wherever he went he demonstrated God’s power by healing every kind of disease and illness.36 When he saw the vast crowds of people, Jesus’ heart was deeply moved with compassion, because they seemed weary and helpless, like wandering sheep without a shepherd. 37 He turned to his disciples and said, “The harvest is huge and ripe! But there are not enough harvesters to bring it all in. 38 As you go, plead with the Owner of the Harvest to thrust out many more reapers to harvest his grain!”
Will you be a part of our team of pray-ers?
Also, and most importantly, we need prayer partners! Will you take our family picture and lift us up before the Lord in prayer daily, weekly, monthly….anytime the Lord brings the Siratt family to your mind? We know that prayer and intercession covers, protects, and sustains us. We also know that prayer will break down barriers and destroy the hindrances of the enemy. Prayer clears the path for us so that our mission is accomplished!
For all of our partners we will be sending out monthly updates about the ministry we are doing here in Europe. Anyone interested in the work we will be doing can subscribe to our YouTube channel – Siratts Going Global to follow along with us on our journey. Here we will share our daily activities and the changes that we encounter by living in a different nation. We will share the ministry opportunities and what God is doing in us and through us. You can also read about our mission through this Blog.
Thank you for taking time to listen as we shared our hearts and for considering becoming a partner with us both financially and in prayer.
The Siratts are moving to Austria! We are so joyful about the vision that God has given us and the many, many people who will be saved, healed, delivered, and strengthened! Our hearts are so full with the love of God for the precious people of Europe. We cannot do this without you! Please link arms with us and help us get the gospel of Jesus Christ to those who need to hear!
