Sidlauskas family in  South Africa

The Sidlauskas family (Mike, Carolynn, Lucas, Amelia, James, and Titus) are long-time attendees of Moran Park Church. Several years ago, they started to feel the stir to be global missionaries. After getting their feet wet with several trips with Moran Park to our sister church in Haiti, they attended an Iris Harvest School in Africa in 2014. Upon completion of the school and return to Holland, they quickly discerned they were being called by God back to South Africa. In a complete act of faith, the whole crew packed-up and moved to Robertson, SA in March of 2015. They have been serving there ever since. Read their newsletter here.

You can keep up with their work here.

If you are interested in financially supporting their family on mission in SA, here are some ways to do so:

Online: Scroll-down to "Iris Missionary" and select Mike & Carolynn, number M410. Be sure to select either a one-time donation of a monthly recurring gift and the amount. Follow the steps to complete the transaction. Iris will send tax-deductible contribution receipts to each donor at the end of the year.

If you are interested in donating by standard mail and check, make checks or money order to: Iris Global PO Box 493995 Redding, CA 96049-3995. 

Be sure to include a note saying who or what you would like the gift to contribute towards. You will need to note "Mike Sidlauskas - Robertson, SA" on the memo line.

Gary Miedema

Gary has attended Moran Park for several years and currently serves on the elder board.  Fall of 2015, he visited the Sidlauskas family for a short-term visit to help and encourage them.  However, after returning, the Lord began to change Gary's heart with a sense that he was to return longer term.  Gary has committed to serving nine months with them in South Africa, starting September 2016.  He hopes to help them reach out to more rural and tribal communities, as that is where his expertise lies. 

To support Gary in this mission, you can click on the "Give" tab, and select Gary's name from the drop-down menu by "Give a Gift".  Moran Park will process, receipt and transmit all contributions without fee to Gary, meaning that 100% of your gift will reach the field.  Thank you for your prayers and support!
