MISSION OF THE MONTH

They have five focus areas: Evangelism; Disaster Response, in partnership with Christ’s servants around the globe; Hunger Relief, both long and short term; Community Development, by providing them with a “hand-up” instead of just a “hand-out;” and Medical Care, in the form of supplies, equipment, prescription medications, vitamins, and other materials requested by mission partners worldwide.

SEEKERS INTERNATIONAL FOUNDATION
After spending over three years as missionaries in Colombia, the Roddy family has returned to Oceanside and have opened a foundation that provides life skills training for teens and young adults. Upon returning to the U.S.A., the Roddy’s saw the same need for hope and life skills training as they encountered in Colombia. Their goal is to first meet the physical needs of young people in order to meet their spiritual needs.
Their flagship programs is their “Seekers Suicide Intervention Corps” in which they are equipping and preparing everyday people, both young and old, to combat suicide in our culture. With suicide rising to epidemic levels here in the U.S. and around the world, this is a vital ministry that is changing and saving lives.
Pray: For regular financial funding to expand the ministry nationally and internationally.
Pray: For health and financial support for the Roddy Family
