RV Update

Kistler’s Full Time Housing Project!

We have been so encouraged over the past six months! Thank you to all who have jumped on board with us. We are closer to our goal! Since our end of the year appeal letter we have seen a lot of support, encouragement, prayers, and financial partnerships. We have also gone back to the drawing board to refine the project goal to better suite our lifestyle and budget. In our appeal we submitted the need for a Class A (bus type) RV. After much study and crunching of numbers, Katrina and I have come to the conclusion that it would be more wise to purchase a 5th wheel style RV. This will give us more living square footage per dollar. It will also be more affordable and less risk in terms of expensive, over-budget repairs. By changing our desired model, it brought our overall needed amount down from $130k to only $85k.

Im encouraged to say we have already raised 45% of that $85,000. We have bought a 3/4 diesel truck, one that is big enough to pull our soon to be home and carry our growing family. Now we only have $52k left to complete our goal of providing consistent housing for our traveling missional family. We humbly ask 1.) will you consider partnering with us financially to accomplish this project? We also need advocates to help share the

vision with others that might have a heart to invest into the vision with us. 2.) would you consider sharing with others who might want to be apart of what we are doing in missions?

Thank you for loving us and Prayerfully partnering with us!
Rodger

Movement and Growth

The fruit of living in constant motion.

Living here, there and sometimes in-between. Constantly discipling young missionaries and developing ministry project for the sake of transformation inside communities, individuals and nations.

We’ve had such a wild and fulfilling life together over the past 14 years. This year has been full of good reminders of God’s call on our family. We have faced many uncertainties and several challenges this year, but through the haze and pain of challenge we have seen God’s favor and hand on our life. There have been moments of looking back and counting the cost, remembering the things we chose to lay down to chase after the dreams of God; the stability of home, comfort of friends and family, and the fantasy of normalities. With all things considered, Katrina and I find it a pure joy to get the chance to see young adults come to know Jesus Christ, gain a biblical worldview, and then be launched into some of the most spiritually dry and physically exhausting places.

 

Seven years ago when we started urban missions training schools there were only eight staff members in the cities we represent. Currently we have more than 50 full time missionaries serving in what we call the Urban Initiative. We are still discipling and training new missionaries but, we are also coaching teams of full-time missionaries in multiple urban cities. In addition, we are inspired to dream of new locations that God has laid on our hearts in which to start developing transformational projects. The vision of Jesus being famous inside of urban environments throughout the world is burning like a Colorado wild fire in our hearts! Multiplying ministries like what we’ve built in New Orleans that share the Gospel and God’s mercy with individuals from the womb (our Pregnancy Care Center) to the tomb (our hospice care) and all thats in between, as well as working in many influential spheres of society. We dream of this model being vastly multiplied for the sake of others knowing Jesus as their savior. This is the vision that empowers us to want to live in a RV trailer that will give us access to urban communities and teams that believe in this same vision. That vision is Jesus and His transformational truth that ignites life and hope to societies and individuals. Please continue to pray for us as we continue embarking on this call to make Jesus famous!

 

Blessings,

Rodger Kistler

Creating Structure To Support Multiplication

362849621_6403c94237_o-590x465

Making devoted followers of Christ, who become individuals who make Christ followers that influence culture.  

Averaging forty-five thousand miles and a couple dozen domestic and international flights each year. Living several weeks, sometimes months, at a time in four different urban cities. We are coaching and training young pioneers to share Christ’s love and kindness within city environments amongst non-believers.  At least four months a year we are on the road leading our missionary students in their field training phase.  Needless to say our family is busy growing the dream that God has given us! Since 2010, we have trained and launched teams into Houston, New Orleans, Dallas and Chicago! We are consistently seeing peoples life impacted by practical evangelistic tools and acts of kindness.

Over the years we have traveled together as a family and slept on many floors and and in many church classrooms. Now with Wyatt and Amelia getting older and starting homeschooling, along with the our new addition coming in May of 2017, we are in need of a housing option that provides consistency and the ability to be together. We feel called to missions as a family. We don’t believe it’s just something I (Rodger) runs off and does while the family stays back. We desire to be a model of a missional family.  We believe God is calling us to step out in faith and begin to communicate and fundraise for the needed resources to be able to purchase and operate a Class A motorhome. We have prayerfully considered many options and learned the pros and cons from many sources. We have also narrowed down the necessities that we need to see this option work as full-time home and ministry access point for our family.

Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us to raise the funds needed to reach our goal of $130K to purchase a quality and roadworthy motorhome? We covet your prayers as we embark on this journey.  Our goal is to be able to purchase a motorhome by May 2017.  Thank you for all your love and support over the years. We are grateful to be ambassadors of Christ in a world that needs His truth.

Blessings, Rodger, Katrina and family
