Daniela Bonanno

Cost: $3,500
Received: $250

In February 2018, Daniela will be going to Haiti for two weeks. The first week will be spent working with Hope for Haiti's Children in the Port-Au-Price region. She will be helping them with their Annual Childcare Clinic serving the children in their orphanages and schools. Each child's needs are assessed and routine immunizations will be given. From there she will travel to Cap-Haitien to spend a week working with FaithCare, where she will assist with meeting the needs of many local people who will be seen at their free clinic. The team shares the love and hope of Jesus with each patient while also meeting their physical needs. Many of us are not able or equipped to go on these types of medical mission trips, however, those who are able need your help. Can you donate and be a part of her vision to help so many in need?

Sharing Jesus in Russia and Greece

Mike and Sheri Bedient
Please click the donate button below to help Sheri and Mike with their trip deficit.
Mike and Sheri Bedient

Cost: $7,100
Received: $4,850

Sheri and Mike Bedient visited Russia and Greece in June 2017. They spent time with Christian leaders in Russia to encourage them and help them have good healthy ministries. They also spent time with young believers. They then went to Greece with the Russian school directors, teachers, parents and students. God opened the door again to share the gospel in English Language classes.

The Bedients did end up with a deficit of $2,250 due to the hike of the euro and other trip expenses from their ministry that they did not foresee. We have reopened this project to allow additional donations to help meet this deficit.

Thank you to all who donated toward Sheri and Mike’s trip and for the consideration in helping to meet their current deficit. You truly are partners in Christ.

Mike and Sheri Bedient

Cost: $4,976
Received: $3,175

Sheri Bedient is a long time missionary with her husband Mike serving the Navigators in Russia and at Arizona State University (ASU). Unfortunately, Sheri, has to have two of her teeth replaced and has no dental insurance...Ouch!
Thanks to all who have donated thus far. Sheri has started her dental treatments and is trying to work within the budget she has. Thank you Logos Dentistry for working in such a tight budget. Let’s give thanks and honor to Sheri for her years of service in Christian ministry by continuing to donate toward her needed dental work. Thank you in advance for any bit of help you can give.

Sharing Jesus in Russia

COMPLETED - $6,010 Donated

Thank you GapFill donors for all your donations that made Mike and Sheri’s trip to Russia in 2016 possible. They had many opportunities to share Jesus and engage again with Russian family and friends.

Mike and Sheri Bedient
Many thanks to one donor who purchased a much needed van for the Bedients. Traveling with college students and driving to short-term mission trips requires a reliable vehicle. We sincerely thank this generous donor who was called to give to the Bedient's work in this way.

Surgery Need for Anthony Vanaria

Surgery need for Anthony Vanaria
Please click the donate button below to help Anthony with his surgery expenses.
Anthony Vanaria

Cost: $25,000
Received: $11,030

Anthony, who is currently in the process of becoming a missionary associate to work full-time with refugee’s in Sicily, has a craniofacial deficiency that results in an obstruction of his airways. Essentially, because of the structure of his jaw bones, he has a limited space in his nasal cavity that substantially reduces his ability to breathe through his nose. This is not only dangerous for his long term health - taxing his respiratory system and heart - but immediately prevents him from adequate sleep and recovery.

Anthony met with craniofacial specialist Dr. Micro Raffaini, who was able to diagnose the problem, and present a solution that invariably improves air intake. The procedure is two-fold, and includes alterations to the structure of both his upper and lower jaw. Anthony’s upper jaw will be lowered to create space - tissue from within the nasal cavity will also be removed as necessary - and his lower jaw will be advanced to accommodate and support changes made to the upper jaw.

Anthony is currently working through his insurance plan, but his options are limited. Regardless of where he gets the surgery, in Italy or the US, insurance will either not cover the surgery or only cover some of it with high deductibles.

Anthony is aware that, personally, a surgery of such magnitude would be difficult to pursue while working overseas. However, since Anthony is in the process of becoming a full time Christian missionary, GapFill is starting a fund to help with whatever will not be covered by his insurance plan, enabling him to receive critical medical treatment without stepping away from ministry abroad.

Feel free to contact GapFill for further details and we can get you in touch with Anthony. Thank you in advance for your consideration in helping Anthony have a healthier life while serving Jesus.

Back Surgery Need

Back surgery need for Marlyn Stucky
Please click the donate button below to help Marlyn with his back surgery expenses.
Marlyn Stucky

Cost: $17,000
Received: $2,475

Thank you all for your prayers and donations. Marlyn had a successful surgery!!! We are all so THANKFUL to the Lord for His faithfulness and provision.

Marlyn is back in Ukarumpa, Papua New Guinea recovering from his surgery. There is still much swelling and nerve damage that will take time to reconnect and regenerate and for the pain to cease. Maryln is doing therapy and stretches to loosen up his back and increase the mobility of his limbs. It is a long healing process. Please continue to pray for Marlyn’s recovery.

Funds received thus far have been sent to the Singapore hospital to begin paying for the surgery, however, additional funds are still needed for the balance to be paid in full. Thank you to all who have given to help with his medical costs.

Sound Equipment Needed

Please click the donate button below to give toward sound equipment for sharing Jesus in India.

Cost: $3,000
Received: $440

Of India's 1.2 billion people, roughly 75% are under the age of 35. As the economy has improved over the last few years, a stronger middle class has emerged, and there is a growing demographic of musicians, painters, artisans, and business owners. Holding music events has created increased opportunities to build relationships, but the re-occurring cost of sound rental prevents hosting more regular events. The purchase of sound equipment - a basic sound board, mics, and speakers - will open more doors for the name of Jesus to be made known in India.

Be a part of this vision in India that Jesus is opening up for these young missionaries!

siSwati Bibles Needed
