Joy Comes to Waiting Family


Baby Joy Then and Now



Good things come to those who wait! After 15 months of paperwork and prayer, baby Joy has started her new life with her forever family.   Arriving home on January 2nd with her Mom and Dad, Joy was greeted by her seven adoring brothers and sisters!

Joy's mother is very thankful. "To imagine someone for over 15 months, to picture them in your home, in your daily activities... and there they are... it's surreal; sometimes all you can do is just stare at them, and try to take it in, and breathe thanks to God."

Joy's life is a great testimony to God's miraculous power. Due to her poor condition when she arrived at GWMI, back in January of 2009, an expert doctor in Pediatric HIV told us to make her comfortable as she dies.  Today she is a picture of health, and has an amazing future ahead of her, thanks to our God, who wants to be known as the "Father to the Fatherless." 

 Many of our friends have given specifically to Joy's adoption, and we are thankful to have been able to pass that assistance on to her family. For more information and pictures, you can visit Joy's family website at:

"You are missionaries to Africa? 
        We want to support you!"


It's every missionaries dream for supporters to simply appear, but we weren't dreaming when approached last week at a new congregation we were visiting. Having dug out of three feet of snow in Montana and traveled south to Arizona, it was wonderful confirmation that we are where we are suppose to be.

It is amazing to us to look back over 2010, and see the Father's provision, and His hand leading and guiding us. We are thankful for the new friends and supporters he has brought to partner with God of Wonder Ministries, and for His tender care through every trial.

Knowing that our loving Father is directing our steps, makes our faith journey the ultimate adventure!

Faith is trusting.
Trusting in God's Word.
Trusting in the Messiah's finished work on our behalf.
Knowing the Messiah lives in us, as we die to our old selfish and sinful ways.
Trusting God to really be able to work all things together for His purposes!

May we all trust Him more and experience His peace as His plan unfolds for all of us in 2011.



Uganda Prayer Requests

Currently National elections are underway, with voting  scheduled to start on February 18th.   These politically charged times can be explosive for Uganda.  

Please remember Uganda in your prayers - pray that the rule of law will be enforced and that the man our heavenly Father wants to be President will prevail in the elections.

Thank you for giving us the privilege of serving our Father in Africa, and for your interest in God of Wonder Ministries. Please continue praying for the McConnell family, and the wonderful people of Africa, that they would know their Saviour, Yeshua the Messiah, and choose to live for Him.

Shalom in Yeshua HaMashiach (Jesus the Christ),

Larry and Beki's Signature

Declare the LORD's glory among the nations, His wonders among all people.

For the LORD is great, and greatly to be praised: he is to be feared above all gods. Psalms 96:3-4
