We’re moving

Gotcha! I know you opened this blog wondering where the Cottles are headed. Well, sorry for the let down but what we mean is; we’ve been moving around from church to church, state to state and even went to Asia. Yes, we’re moving.

We just returned from Wilson NC where we participated in a three day missions conference. WOW! We had a great time sharing about the work in Asia, listening to other missionaries and meeting the great people of the church. We left so encouraged. The church highlighted the Faithfulness of God over 25 years of faith promise missions giving.

On January 27th we boarded the plane for Central Asia. Upon arrival we spent one day seeing some sights in what is referred to in Act 2:9 as Cappadocia. Yes, we walked the land where the first people to hear the gospel in their own language lived. Pretty cool! After our one day of sight-seeing we did engage in three days of training in another location.

Around the 14th century Christians returned to this area fleeing from persecution.

This is a table inside one of the caves (all stone). Eating area for the church…made me rethink the Lord’s Supper.

After this trip Lynette headed to Cambodia to hold a three day teacher training seminar and James headed the Thailand to join other World Team workers from East Asia and then James hosted the 2016 LEAD meetings where the Area leaders came together to grow in effectively assessing the ministry we lead.

Thanks for your partnership. Your partnership not only keeps us in ministry but allows us to minister to other missionaries who are working among various unreached people groups.

  1. James and Lynette, What a blessing to see God’s continued work in and thru your lives. I will always have fon memories of my times in Cambodia. I learned a great deal in my three short times with you and World Team. Currently, I am still developing my language skills with my friend Singh a Buddhist who runs a doughnut shop ans actually encourages me in directly to learn more. My desire is that he comes to a saving faith in our Lord Jesus Christ.

    Thank you again for all that you both do. God bless, Gary Wood
