Missions




"As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen."   1 Peter 4:10-11 ESV

We Support: 




Missy & Dylan Brobst 

Missy and Dylan, working through Servants, are missionaries in Guatemala.  Both are York county natives—Missy even graduated from Red Lion High School! Since their first short term missions trip to Guatemala in February of 2011, they had a burning desire to return there and serve full time. Now, they’ve realized that dream and are stationed in Guatemala serving those in need.


The Red Lion Zion Missions Team would like to request that we support this local couple in prayer!

Suggested prayers:

For God to protect their marriage and helps them better prioritize their lives to continually strengthen their relationship; that He provides guidance as they move forward to provide Ciudad de Refugio the support He has called them to provide; that they get the appropriate rest and repose they need on a regular basis so they don’t burn out, that He brings more workers to the field to help carry the load of the Serving At Risk Families ministry; that He protects them and their home physically and spiritually; that He continues to provide what they need: spiritually, emotionally, and physically as they continue to serve Him in a foreign land.

SERVANTS


Red Lion Zion supports Living Word Community Church with a monthly work day one Saturday a month.  We have been invited to join them in this missions outreach.  This is your opportunity to help people in your community.  It is not necessary to be skilled in construction...all you need is a willing spirit and a servant’s heart. 




Please contact Sherri Santana at 717-873-4176 if you are able to help.
