Prayer Alert

This morning, we are off to Zhytomyr to conduct the 2018 "Life Without Limits" conference. It begins this evening and runs through Friday evening. We are taking the WHOLE CREW. This will be the first time we have tried to take everyone on a trip like this (we never even tried it in the USA).

There are 20 moms (with their kids) signed up for the conference. We have scaled the conference way back from years past because of less financial resources to put in to it, but we are confident that God will do amazing things, nonetheless! These moms are all non-believers (except for 1). We will be sharing truths from the Word of God about how we can live in joy, peace, contentment, expectation, and fullness - regardless of our physical situation and circumstances.

Please join us in praying for this amazing opportunity this week!

Prayer points:
  • Our kids and us. It is likely to be very hard.
  • Ethan - that he will trust us and that he will trust the Father even though he will be afraid from the moment we leave the house. Pray that he will eat (he is in a phase of only eating a couple of different things right now). Pray that he will not be aggressive. Pray that he will have peace.
  • My mom will be here on her own. (With neighbors and June, of course.)
  • Our vehicles - we will be taking two because of the number of us going.
  • The moms - many are either anti-religion or are simply not interested in God. But they want to come to the conference.
  • The program at the conference - we have to be flexible in our topic and what we talk about.

Thank you for praying!


There is a button below if you would like to give, specifically, for the conference. We are short what it needed, but God knows the need and He will provide it in His own way. If you feel led to give toward it, we would be grateful. Thank you!

Could you help?  

God may be calling you to give and we are asking you to answer that call. We hear week after week of ways that God is working in amazing ways through His work through what we do. We don't pretend that it is us doing the Spiritual work, but He is using our willingness to be here and serve.

One particularly large need we have at the moment is to finish paying off our house and the ministry center. We need to pay the final $44,000 as soon as possible. This seems impossible as I type it, but it is the current need. I don't feel free to share in this public forum the reasons because I don't know who all will read this newsletter here in Ukraine. If you are able to help with this large need and need more information about the reasons, please email me, privately.

There are several ways to give that you can read about in the gray box, below. If you are a member of First Moore Baptist Church in Moore, Oklahoma, you can easily give through your normal offering (above your tithe - please do NOT give your tithe anywhere but your local church - even to us). You just need to mark it "Ukrainian Missions" or "Malones in Ukraine" or something with the word "Ukraine" in it.

  • School is out! The Summer "race" will be begin soon with many weeks of camps. It will be hard on our little kids, but we know that God can fill the gaps.
  • As a family, we will be taking a "break" this next week. We will regroup and prepare for the summer. Pray that we can persistently draw closer to the Father individually and as a family.
  • Please join us in asking the Father to provide the final $47,000 we need to complete the payment of our home and the UMO Ministry Center. Because we don't know exactly who in Ukraine will end up reading this, I won't share details of why this is necessary now. If you would like more information, you can email Chris at chris@umok.org .
  • Hannah begins summer camps soon. She is the female counselor supervisor at Pine Cove.
  • Blake is working this summer to save money for next semester when he begins his graduate assistant-ship. They pay for all his degree expenses, but he also will have to live.  
  • Pray for Chris and Mary. Our hearts miss our big kids. It's the normal part of parenting. Many of you have been through it. They seem so far away with the ocean between us.
  • Pray for our teammates Jamie and June.
  • Pray for our friends and Ukrainian "teammates", Yuri and Sveta.
