Askins in Asia September Newsletter

Together in Christ

The last two months have provided our family with the opportunity to serve the entire region. I talk about that in my newsletter article this week. Eliza discusses whether grass is greener or the moon is rounder. And you have the opportunity to hear about it all. Please let us know if you have any questions.

In Christ,

Rev. Roy S. Askins

For Your Prayers and Support

I’m currently traveling in the United States raising support for our work. I’m in California this week, and then Boston and North and South Carolina toward the end of October. Please keep Eliza and the children in your prayers as I travel.

It’s also a great time to sign up for additional support, if you’re able. Through your support, we can continue to proclaim the message of Christ and him crucified in Asia and support those who do the same. Please follow the link below to offer that support now. Thank you.

Feeding God's People

Last month, I witnessed the Lutheran church body in Sri Lanka re-form and ordain their first new pastor in the last decade. I’ve shared some more information and pictures about the great event in this edition of the Askins in Asia. Eliza talks about what it's like to watch the local children head to school while we school at home. 

Pastors and secretaries: As always, please print the newsletter and leave it in your narthex for parishioners to pick up and take home. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to send me a note. 

Thank you for your support. We couldn't do it without you.
