Steve and Kath Mills moved to Kuwait on the 14th of September, 2015 for Steve to be on full time staff with The Lighthouse Church as the Missions Pastor. Due to a set of circumstances outside of their control that position ended the 15th of December, 2015. On the 15th of January, 2016 after much prayer Steve and Kath accepted an invitation for Steve to be the Senior Pastor of a new church plant in Kuwait.
This new church, Crossroad International Church (CIC), is now just over four months old and is steadily growing. Every Friday, the day of worship in Kuwait, there are about 70 adults and around 25 children in attendance. CIC was able to secure a great location in a sports club where they have the main hall which will hold up to about 125 comfortably and 150 jammed. They also use the yoga room for the older children’s ministry and one of the squash courts for the younger children’s ministry and have use of the adjoining soccer field for children’s activities. There is great potential, as the facility is available to have multiple services when needed. Be in prayer for this new church plant in Kuwait.
Presently Steve and Kath are in the country on a 90-day temporary residency visa. For the near future They will have to leave Kuwait every 90 days for 2 days then come back in. Please be in prayer for them as they are looking into possibilities of obtaining a regular residency visa again. There are several options and they need direction from the Lord of which option to pursue.

Steve is still traveling globally when possible doing leadership seminars and helping to train Vision Resource Center staff. In March he was in Ethiopia with Dr. Scott Richie working with Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church training national youth leaders under the direction of a Vision graduate. Ethiopian Kale Heywet Church has around nine thousand churches across Ethiopia with more than eight million members. Sixty percent of their member are youth. This was a great time to pour into the leaders of these youth leaders who were going back to their areas of ministry to teach those under them what they were being taught. How excited to see 2 Timothy 2:2 fulfilled! The first two weeks of May Steve was in Nigeria with Pastor Morris Yeedoun the West Africa/Francophone Africa Director for Vision. They did a leadership conference and a time of training for the Resource Center Directors. In August and again in October Steve is scheduled to travel to Pakistan working with a network of churches outside of Lahore to hopefully start a new Resource Center for them. Please be in prayer for Steve as he travels.
Dr. Steve and Dr. Stan co-authored a book, Financial Integrity, God’s Plan For Financial Freedom. This book is in the final stages of publication and will be available soon. Watch for more details!
