Austins Headed to Czech Republic
Kevin and Cindy Austin are heading back to Czech Republic with Global Partners. They came to our district in 2008 when they began working at Houghton College. Kevin has also served as Assistant Pastor at Houghton Wesleyan Church for the past 4 years.
The Austins served with sports ministry teams and Global Partners in Europe for many years. Kevin, Cindy and Josiah are eager to return to the Czech Republic, formerly a communist country, where very few know about God or their need for a Savior. They will be working in the young church, alongside Czech believers. The team uses camps, retreats, English classes, and small groups to build relationships with those who don't know Jesus and to disciple those who do.
Jesus said, "Peace be with you! As the Father has sent me, I am sending you." --John 20:21 NIV
