Today we farewell the Welch family on their epic missionary adventure to the mountains of Peru. With 8 children in tow ranging from 17 years to 2 months, this is not an adventure for the faint hearted or those with weak faith. However both Chris and Sandi feel a strong sense of call and our church has committed itself to supporting them.
Chris and Sandi will be the 44th and 45th missionary we have sent out since Anne and I have been at our church. Between the Welches, the Scheps and the Taskers, we also have 13 children on the field. There are not many churches in Australia with this number of missionaries.
I want to thank our church for being amazingly generous. Through your generousity and support of our missionaries, we are able to reach hundreds of thousands of people each week beyond the shores of Australia. Only heaven will truly reveal the full extent of our passion in touching the world.
Lots of love,
Ps John and Anne Iuliano
