Buttonwoods Bible Chapel, Warwick, Rhode Island, USA in 1981
After the Lord Jesus Christ saved us from sin, He brought us together at Bible college. We were married in 1972 and had our first child in 1973. We lived in Paris for a short time from 1973 to 1974. We had our second child in 1976. By 1981 we were commended to full time work in France by two assemblies in Rhode Island. After language school we served in the assembly in Aix-les-Bains. We moved to the center of France in 1983 and began an assembly work in Moulins sur Allier. After 17 years of evangelism and making of disciples, Deacons and Elders were appointed in the year 2000. Then we moved to Vichy. The "Assemblée Chrétienne de Vichy" is a New Testament type Christian Brethren Assembly located in the heart of France. It was pioneered many years ago by the parents of Priscilla (Hoy) Kalioudjoglou. Trifon and Priscilla served there for over 35 years as did many others. Many were saved and had gone on to serve the Lord, but by the year 2000 there were only 4 in attendance and one was not a believer ! We answered the call to "come over and help"(Acts 16v9). The assembly grew as the Lord added to His church. By 2009 we were able to appoint deacons and in 2011 a "Titus Team" to finish the work and appoint elders when the time comes. We went to the USA for cancer treatment for Faith where she passed into the presence of the Lord on July 12, 2012. I am now spending 6 months a year in France as an itinerant evangelist and teacher. The other 6 months I spend in the USA traveling and encouraging assemblies in overseas missions.
Ministry updates:
Summer 2014 is full of Gospel outreach opportunities and open doors to encourage overseas missions in North American assemblies. I returned from France on May 22nd and soon hit the road for an assembly meeting in Idaho to encourage missions. I will be returning there for an August 3rd Gospel open air meeting in the city park. After ID, I was able to visit Immanuel Mission to help a French assembly missionary who is coming to serve the Lord among the Navajo. I will be returning there as well for a missions meeting at the Navajo chapel at the end of August. Back in Phoenix, it was a joy to help with VBS at the Open Door Fellowship where this first try reached over 130 children! Putting my French cooking skills to work for snacks and lunch, I was able to visit the classes from toddlers to teens and joy in hearing Jesus' Name clearly explained to the kids. Two weekly men's Bible studies and door to door follow up with a meeting place for enquirers keeps me very busy. I look forward to returning to France on September 9th for another three month preaching and teaching trip. Your prayers are greatly appreciated for souls to be saved !
