Dear pastors, missionaries, chaplains and friends,
Steve Jones here I’m excited! Our new Fellowship International Director, Dave Marttunen, starts his ministry among us this week (October 1).
I want to encourage you to greet Dave and Donna (left) at this email address, or give him a call at 519-821-4830. I would encourage you to read the brief bio about Dave that is attached to this email.
I have learned that he is a godly and humble brother; I know this will be your experience when you meet Dave.
When royalty comes to town, humility is not one of the first thoughts that come to mind. On one visit to North America, Queen Elizabeth brought 4,000 pounds of luggage (two outfits for each occasion), 40 pints of plasma, a kid-leather toilet seat, a hair dresser, two valets and a host of attendants. A brief visit from the Queen can cost a host nation more than $20 million!
I assure you, this is in stark contrast with our new International Director, who moved into town with a backpack riding his Vespa—no, not quite like that! However, it is true that our new International Director is a servant who wants to serve our churches, leaders, and missionaries.
I encourage you to greet Dave and Donna and consider inviting him to speak at your church soon.
Have a blessed week,
Steve Jones (click on the pdf file below to download)
