Kindsbach, Germany

Whitley Family

Recently our family moved from Strasbourg, France to Kindsbach, Germany.  During this time of transition, we often return to Strasbourg to visit and continue in ministry.  On December 5th, we were in Strasbourg to make Christmas visits with the ladies-in-waiting; to give small Christmas gifts and the Bible story from Matthew and Luke in their own language.  We also visited the Christmas markets near the beautiful cathedral and the area where just one week later became the most recent location for a terrorist attack.  We are praying for our friends in Strasbourg; those who were at the location only hours before the incident, or decided not to go because of the weather, and those who live in the neighborhood where the police were tracking down the shooter.  Please pray with us for our friends in Strasbourg as they continue to live and minister during this difficult time.
Here in Kindsbach, we are also involved in ministry.  During this season of giving, we have enjoyed working with a ministry to refugees in giving backpacks and school supplies; and reaching out to victims of human trafficking by giving small gifts, Christmas cookies, and the Christmas story in many languages.

As the New Year approaches, we are looking forward to continued opportunities in ministry. Tiffne is happy to be a part of the European Baptist Federations Anti-Trafficking working group; who are passionate about networking with and mobilizing Baptists to walk into the darkest corners of our world with the light of Jesus’ love. Please pray for Tiffne as she speaks at the European Baptist Federations Children and Youth leaders’ conference in January in Brussels, Belgium.  Also, please continue to pray as we continue to reach out to victims of human trafficking.

Every Home for Christ

This ministry specifically aims at taking the gospel to every single home on the planet including huts, tents and tree houses. Every Home for Christ visits more than 175,000 homes everyday and has reached 1.34 billion homes in the last 64 years. In that time they have seen over 89.8 million people respond to the gospel! These statistics plus personal experience on the field in Nicaragua handing out the gospel makes us confident that we sow into a great work when we give monthly to Every Home for Christ.

World Vision

First Rock has been in relationship with World Vision since 2003 when our senior pastor and his wife went on a pastor’s vision trip to South Africa. That trip led to approximately 25 children being sponsored with families sending monthly support to individual children in that country. Through the years since, we have felt led to send several large gifts to help with housing and clean water. In 2009 we partnered with World Vision and another church in the metroplex to build a medical clinic in Uganda. This is the nation that we currently sponsor more than 40 children due to a sponsorship drive in early 2010. Taking care of widows and orphans due the AIDS pandemic and ministering to the poor are all biblical mandates that this ministry helps us to be apart of. We look forward to continuing our relationship with this global ministry.
