May 2021 FOMI Newsletter

Spring Mission Projects

Locally, we had an opportunity to partner with Street Hope TN two different times to help them with several projects they are working on. We are also continuing to partner with Operation Backyard for other local mission opportunities. We are beginning to plan for our annual “Live Nativity” that will be on Market Square in downtown Knoxville this December 4-5. Please pray that we will be able to share with Knoxville the true meaning of Christmas in 2021.



Regionally, God has continually blessed our partnership with Steve & Susan Jett who are serving in Williamsburg, KY.  We will have more trips later this year to be a part of what God is doing in their ministry area.

, we found out the the prisons in Florida are now open to visitors, so this will allow our Prison Softball MInistry Team

to go back in to minister and share the gospel with the prisoners. We plan to take 3 trips to Florida and pray that the prisons in Tennessee, Kentucky, & Alabama will open up as well.



Internationally, God has kept the door open for us to minister in Honduras with Wellspring of Life. We look forward to many more opportunities to help them upgrade their facilities to minister to the children in the school and the community. God has also opened the door for Carl & Families on Mission Intl to partner with Amazon Outreach this July 16-25. They mobilize mission teams to assist Brazilian churches in making disciples by sharing the love of Jesus along the Amazon River Basin. Carl is partnering with Northstar Church South in Knoxville, TN. We are praying that this can become a long-term partnership.




Prayer Requests:
-Praise the Lord for opening the prisons and pray that God will guide our footsteps
in this ministry.
-Pray that FOMI will be faithful to serve the Lord locally as He shows us opportunities.
