LYNN & SHERRY SHMIDT

Lynn and Sherry served in South Africa for 18 years as medical missionaries, returning to the States to further their education in evangelism. During furloughs, Lynn worked on his Masters in Evangelism and later his Doctorate in Missiology. Sherry prepared with home study to become an ordained minister. Life never stays the same, and while they were home in Kentucky and Ohio, they went to school, pastored a church, filled the pulpit, worked as a nurse, and taught at Ohio Christian University and Asbury University. They saw their children get married, both of them, in the spring of 2003.

One of life's greatest blessings has been their 6 grandchildren who fill their lives with laughter and joy. On their road to semi-retirement (or so they thought) Lynn and Sherry were surprised by another great joy—the joy of following God's leading to “go” once again. They have been commissioned to go the Philippines to teach at the seminary and coordinate strategizing mission on the Asia-Pacific region starting in the fall of 2015.

      Kansas District Project - Soccer Field

      (Adult, Youth and Children's Project)

      Churches are using soccer to reach hundreds of children and youth each week.

      The goal is to build soccer fields adjacent to or near existing churches. The church will host leagues and use these leagues as an opportunity to share the Gospel and help disciple the players. Current leagues are for children, youth, and adults, for both men and women.

      The purpose of this project is to use the sport of soccer to reach the lost.

      Funds raised will be used to build a traditional "Canchita" (a little soccer field, the size of a basketball court) using block walls, fencing, netting, artificial turf, a drain system, and lights.

      Goal Completion Date: April 30, 2018
