Bio:
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:
Fall 2015 has just ended with a positive ministry results at a crucial time in France. Hearts were opened to the Gospel after France was shock by the sad events in Paris. The Lord had planned for me to be in the capital at the time and it was good to share the hope we have in Christ. The Christians were motivated to hear how to lead others to Christ. We need your prayers and your help to lead more to Him. Pray for the other assemblies in France where the Lord leads and I teach biblical Methods of the Master to reach those without Christ. It was good to be back in Ussel, St Chély d'Apcher, Vichy, Moulins and Charolles. Pray also for the many people I visited in these areas who are not yet saved and therefore do not attend any assembly. They all have Bible verse calendars for 2016 and we spent a good time talking about personal salvation. Many were open to me praying for them to let the Lord come into their life. The assembly in Moulins has almost completed their new chapel, but they need chairs that meet the fire code. Perhaps you would like to share with the cost of 100 chairs as they have sacrificially given to build the chapel. You can make a special designated gift to CMML for that purpose.
