www.showhope.org Finally, there's no way that anyone could think of the Chapman family without mentioning the tragic loss of their baby girl, Maria Sue Chunxi Chapman, on May 21, 2008. The family has suffered such unimaginable grief. We have grieved with them, as so many of you have. Yet, they have chosen to give glory to our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ through all that they have endured. As they have emulated, it is only by His grace that any of us can manage to get through anything so catastrophic in life. We greatly admire this entire family and their Christian leadership, which has been so clearly demonstrated through the most horrific and tragic of circumstances, as well as throughout the high points of their lives. We thank this family for their down-to-earth transparency, for the way that they have been and continue to be so "real," as they unashamedly allow the tears to flow and the praises to be sung through the same breath. Additionally, I praise God for the bravery Mary Beth Chapman has exhibited in writing her book, CHOOSING TO SEE, in which she recounts the journey of struggle and hope all of this has been to their entire family. This is definitely one of the best books I've ever read and has served as a huge inspiration to me. If you haven't read it, you are missing a HUGE blessing! You can download it from Amazon in ebook/Kindle form (like I did), or to find out more about this and the music and latest occurrences of the Chapman's lives, go to stevencurtischapman.com and/or Mary Beth's blog at marybethchapman.com. Please continue to pray for each member of this precious and truly remarkable family.

In addition to that last post...we are now scheduling churches in the South Carolina and Northern Georgia and Northern Alabama regions, as well as in Tennessee. Please consider anyone you might know in these regions (or anywhere, of course) and send us contact info if you think they might consider partnering with us in our ministries here in the U.K. Our visits through this region are scheduled for June. Remember, we must raise our own support in order to remain on the mission field. The way our ministries here are set up, there is no way for us to take the type of longer furloughs, which most other missionaries get to observe. Therefore, it is crucial that we use this time wisely to gain partners while in the USA.

Thanks so much for checking out our blog! Currently, we are trying to finalise plans for the "official" Lollar Family Mission deputation this summer, and we need your help! We have had some requests from friends in the New England region of the USA-- for us to come to their church and present our mission there. From there, we will be driving south. If any of you know of churches, groups, or individuals from New England down to MS, who would be interested in learning more about our ministries here in the UK, and would possibly allow us to visit with them in the months of June or July of this year to share how to become a partner with our ministries here, we would be very grateful for the contact information. Please email us any names, numbers, emails, suggestions, ideas, or other info that you might have regarding this request. THANKS!!! Our email is firstname.lastname@example.org .

- To live our lives to glorify God to the fullest. Whether at work, at play, at church, or out in the world, we want to lift the name of the Lord our Savior, Jesus Christ. We are very thankful that God has called us into career missions. We are having to step out into the unknown, which is fine because nothing is unknown to God! This way, we must depend fully on God, and God alone--not on ourselves or on men.
