Hatches, England (UPDATE)

This week we are praying for our missionaries, Chris and Josephine Hatch.  Like many others, the Hatch’s plans for life and ministry have been impacted by COVID.

One of these changes involves them accepting an expanded role between two positions with Serge.  One of these positions will involve overseeing several teams and building upon previously established relationships as Regional Supervisors in the UK.  The other position as Area Specialists for Contextualization and Culture will allow them to be more involved with the mission as a whole, “seeking to support the mission and vision of Serge as a multicultural community called into cross-cultural mission both here and abroad.”

Chris and Josephine plan to make St. Louis their home base, while making several trips to the UK and around the US each year once travel restrictions lighten.

Please pray for the Hatches as they long to travel to their family in Nairobi to grieve the loss of Josephine’s father, who passed in November.  Pray also for their return to London as they transition into their new roles.  You can learn more about the work that the Hatches are doing and other ways to support them in prayer by going to: Praying for Missionaries.
