The Albright Family

Cole and Debbie Albright, and their four children, Liam, Laila, Tate & Wren are our newest supported Missionaries. They arrived in Lima, Peru the end of July and are excited about their first term of service.  They serve under ABWE. They are fully supported with most of their support coming from their home state of Iowa. They are settling into their home and already reaching out to people with the Gospel. We are excited about how God plans to use them in reaching people for Jesus Christ in Peru.

The Galbraith Family

Trevor & Amelia Galbraith and their two daughters, Evelyn and Vera, are missionaries to Great Britain.  They are serving under Baptist Mid-Missions. Trevor grew up in Great Britain, so they have the privilege of serving with his parents. God provided housing, schooling for the girls, and they are already fully engaged in ministry. 

The Stilwells

David & Kandie Stilwell are missionaries in Peru under Baptist Mid-Missions. Currently they are home on furlough for a year but plan to return to Peru in August. They have been involved in pastoring and starting new churches, teaching in the Peru Baptist Bible College and also serving at the Fortress Baptist Camp.  

Sharon Nightingale

Sharon Nightingale and her late husband, Jason, founded Wordsower International in 1974 which ministers in India, Nepal, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Ghana & Cote d’lvoire.  Wordsower focuses on orphan and widow care and anti child trafficking.  After Jason’s death about five years ago, Sharon has become the Executive Director and is continuing to make sure that these orphans and widows are care for.

John Stroup and the Freeway Ministries

Freeway Ministries is an organization committed to living out the Gospel and fulfilling the Great Commission found in Matthew 28. They are committed to using Biblical truths and believe through the reasoning of scriptures, people can and will be set free from any and every addiction; all while glorifying Jesus Christ.  They focus on assisting the local church with hard to reach men and women by explaining the Gospel in a way they can relate by people who have been in the same circumstances. They are a gateway into church for the people that are “unchurched.” John started this work and he and his family faithfully serve the Lord in this growing ministry.

Alpha Women’s Center

The heart for Alpha Women’s Center can be traced back to 1989, with a group of concerned pro-life individuals who wanted to make a difference in the central Iowa area.  Over several years, groups met, committees were formed, and action was taken. Alpha Women’s Center opened in 1995 with a vision and mission to glorify God as a Christ-centered resource for affirming the sanctity of human life starting at conception.  Our two locations are staffed by a small but mighty team of dedicated employees and trained volunteers.  We do not receive government funding and we operate entirely on donations and private support from churches and individuals.  For more information, go to our website at www.awcdesmoines.org. “We want the opportunity to be a friend to someone who may need one.”
