We asked our partners to share some of the ways Jesus’ kingdom was advanced this year. We hope you are encouraged by their answers and the special messages they have for you!
It was a chilling winter day in Gugulethu, South Africa. Pastor Vuyo Nyabaza looked up from the task he was busy with – one of many involved with offering lunch for the hungry families in the impoverished area. His fingers were stiff with cold. That’s when he saw it – a sight that made his heart ache.
These are not families who have pantries full of supplies from Costco. These are people who leave their homes each morning in hopes that they will earn a few cents to purchase food for that day. Not being able to leave means not being able to eat.

The daughter of ITMI’s Richard and Brooke Nungesser, Adelyne, shares her unique perspective on the Nungesser’s life and ministry in Poland in the first of two short videos. In these two videos, she smiles about the unusual item her 80-year-old school never had and finally installed for the first time ever this year, talks about what she and her friends do for fun, reveals her roles in Bread of Life’s week-long summer camp outreach, Tydzien USA (which means “USA week”) and the annual Christmas event raising funds for sick children, talks about what Poznan International Church is like for youth and how she gets her friends there when they don’t fit in the family car, and tells a funny story on her dad!
Enjoy the enthusiasm of Richard and Brooke Nungesser as they share an endless stream of stories of the amazing things God is doing through Bread of Life.
Several of our partners’ kids are grown and choosing to become involved in ministries of their own. Others are choosing to minister alongside their parents! It’s exciting to see a new generation of national workers equipped and ready for ministry!
“Oh, they’re here for my daddy,” he said as the police car entered the neighborhood. His dad had dropped him off at the children’s camp the night before, dead drunk.
The Nungessers say, “We are most thankful this year for the grace of God in our lives.” Wait until you see the challenging numbers God saw them through!
The pastor kept apologizing for his church. He apologized that the floor was only dirt. He apologized that only half the roof was constructed. He invited me to preach to the church leaders but was embarrassed that his church wasn’t completed. Standing before these pastors and missionaries I wanted to give them courage and hope. I wanted to remind them of the essence of their work. I encouraged them with this and I hope it encourages you!
