MOP Daily Announcements

Friday July 17, 2015
Trust you all had a good day alone with the LORD. What a gift it is to be in a spot where we are encouraged to make this part of our spiritual journey!

  • For those of you departing today or tomorrow remember to give your keys and nametags to Marcie before you leave campus. Please make sure your room doors are locked.
  • Thanks in advance for cleaning your rooms so they are ready for the next group on campus. You can find room cleaning guidelines in your blue MOP folder. One change of instructions...Please put all towels, washcloths, and sheets in your pillow cases and place them in the laundry room. Typically, towels are hung in the bathrooms to dry, but because of the quick turn-around it would be a big help to have all linens removed from the rooms. Please leave bedspread and mattress covers in the rooms.
  • If you have a newsletter that you send out via email, please add Marcie to your distribution list! Thanks!!
  • You can check out your personal page on the website by going to and typing in your last name. If you want to change the picture or bio or an Error message appears contact the media team at

Wednesday July15, 2015

  • Waters, coffee and tea will be available in the IO throughout the day.
  • Washing machines and dryers are unavailable Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. Feel free to use them Thursday night as along as you can make sure your items are cleared out of the laundry room for Reconnect people to use the machines Friday morning.
  • KEYS! For those of you who are leaving campus on Friday or Saturday and not returning for SYIS or SEND U...please make sure you give your keys to Marcie before you leave campus.
  • NAMETAGS! All nametags can be given to Marcie on Friday.
  • Have a great Day Alone with God tomorrow. I will be praying for each of you by name!

Tuesday July 14, 2015

  • If you plan to fast during your Day Alone with God, please let Marcie know today.
  • LAUNDRY REMINDER: Reconnect missionaries will be on campus Thursday afternoon and Friday morning. If at all possible, please do not use the washing machines and dryers in the hotel during these times. Thanks!!

Monday July 13, 2015

If it is nice out we will meet at Marcie's house around the outdoor fire pit. More info on the exact location tomorrow. Dad's...thanks for caring for the kids so the mom's can get out for a bit.
  • If you are staying on campus and attending SNAAC and need a ride to church on Sunday and then to the hotel for conference please see Marcie ASAP.

Thursday July 9, 2015
Just a couple of announcements for today...

  • I have started uploading pictures to the MOP July 2015 Facebook page. If you are not a member of this private group yet and need to be invited, please let me know.
  • Regarding the Name Badge Order form and the Parent Address form...they are on the back table in the IO Training Room. Not sure what I am talking about...see the explanation from yesterday. :-)
  • I have a number of John Piper's book Filling Up the Afflictions of Christ. If you would like a free copy you can pick one up in my cubicle.

Wednesday July 8, 2015
TODAY IS PICTURE DAY!!! Immediately after testimony chapel today we will meet at the rocks, under the tree, by the MEC for our MOP July 2015 group picture. Parents, please gather your kids and meet the rest of the MOPers there. As soon as the pictures have been taken by Keith Baum (Media Director) you all can head to lunch.

  • If you are staying for SNAAC (SEND North American Annual Conference) and need a ride to the hotel on Sunday July 19th please see Marcie.
  • Just a reminder to make sure you see Ann Baur for your SEND ID badge. She is not in the office today, but will back tomorrow.
  • On the back table there are a couple of documents that need your attention:
    • Name Badge Order - if you need a SEND name badge (example is with the form) please fill out the form with the necessary information. Orders will be placed in a couple of weeks and I will mail your name badge to you.
    • Parent Addresses - Warren sends a letter to the parents of first-time departure missionaries shortly before Christmas. This is a letter of thanks and encouragement to them as they approach the holidays. Please take a minute and jot down parents names and addresses as appropriate.
  • Just a reminder to make sure you bring a photo ID (passport or driver's license) to lunch on Friday for the security form notarization process.
  • Guys...tonight is your night to gather together for sodas and salty snacks! (Josue likes salty snacks!) You will meet in the Board Room in the downstairs of the IO at 7pm.
  • Tomorrow, bring the Bible that you use in your personal devotions to the spiritual formation sessions. It does not have to be in the English language.

Tuesday July 7, 2015
Good Morning!! Hope you all had a good sleep last night! 

  • Today is the first day of testimonies. This is always a highlight for the staff. We so enjoy hearing how God has been at work in the lives of those He is sending out. Today we will hear from Matt and Lisa (10 mins), Kevin and Angela (10 mins), and Karin Schuerch (10 mins). Please do your best to stay within your allotted time frame so the staff can get to lunch on time.
  • Guys...tomorrow night at 7pm you are going to meet together in the board room (downstairs) in the IO. This will be a time for you guys to hang out, yak and eat snacks. Ladies, just a reminder that your night out will be next Tuesday at Marcie's house.
  • I am starting to put together the details for the MOP picnic on Saturday. If you know you will not be there, please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks!

Monday July 6, 2015
Feel free to see Ann Baur for your SEND name tags anytime during the breaks starting today.

Tonight right after supper Ann Baur is going to give you a brief explanation of a couple security forms that need to be signed prior to leaving for your field of service. We will gather your signatures and have the forms notarized on Friday (7/10) of this week during lunch. Please make sure you bring a government picture ID with you to lunch on Friday (passport or driver's license is sufficient).

Sunday July 5, 2015

Welcome to MOP 2015!!

There will be information coming soon regarding how to get connected to a printer in the IO. If you need to have something printed out before Monday morning please email it to Marcie at and it will be printed for you.

One schedule change!!! The Women's Outing has been changed from Tuesday evening July 7th to Tuesday evening July 14th at 8pm. We will gather at the Williamson home for an informal time around the fire pit and enjoy some S'mores. Dad's will have the privilege of taking care of the kiddos while the mom's are out for a couple of hours.
