Wayne and Jana Salley have been doing an awesome job of setting up speaking engagements and chauffeuring Avis around! Just wonder where they will take her next?

3 Bells, Virginia 9-14

This past Sunday (9-14), Avis shared with the Three Bells UMC in Duffield VA. Three Bell’s is Sue Vaughn’s home church. They have been great supporters of past mission trips to Peru. It was awesome for Avis to be there and share in person how their efforts are touching the people of Peru.

In the  evening service she had the privilege of worshiping and sharing with the North Kingsport Church of God in Kingsport TN. Avis is having a great time telling folks about the greatness & faithfulness of our God!

On Sunday Sept. 21st Avis was part of the worship celebration at Grace Community Fellowship of Duffield VA.  This church has a heartbeat for missions and Peru.

We are excited to see the pre-order sales of Out of the Dust on SMILE Amazon! However, it was a real event when Avis sold the first in person pre-order.




Avis has a few days to rest and refresh before starting the October leg of her travels. She will be heading to Honduras! Be sure to come back for all the latest updates!923_001

Avis is in Honduras with Jana Salley.  WI-FI and internet connections are not so good, so no photos or updates to share at this time. Good thing we always have a clear direct connection to our Abba! Remember to lift Avis up and pray that many woman will  have a life changing encounter with Jesus!

We have a few exciting photos from Avis’ trip to Honduras!
