“Position Report” Tim & Cheryl Doggett It is Decision Time... It is officially December 2013 and it’s time for a firm decision about the work that both Cheryl and Tim will pour our lives into for the coming years. As we have mentioned several times in our Position Report, we have intentionally set aside time this year to reflect on the past five years. We wanted to intentionally consider our contributions in the ACM International U.S. office and what it all means for our future. It has been quite a ride (an odd mixture of wonderful, yet deeply challenging) and though we have never felt more inadequate for any task, we have continually given praise to God for the privilege of serving His Kingdom in this way. We have never been more optimistic about what God will do through the ACMI team He has called together. We have prayed, we have talked to many of you, and we have met with every ACMI missionary just to gain a deeper understanding of what God is doing among us. We have asked our board for a formal review of Tim’s work. His classes this year, and his mentor, have provided lots of opportunity for introspection. And, of course, Cheryl and Tim, together with our precious family have considered what God is saying to us. Tim’s formal review will be forth-coming any day now and we want to give due consideration to that process. We also want to give you, our partners in this ministry, one more chance to share your thoughts and your counsel. This past weekend was a special time at our home church as we prepare to send yet another young family out to an unreached part of the world, another advancement of the Kingdom on earth. This is what our hearts beat for! Tim was asked to share a little about our long-term relationship with the New Heights Christian Church, a relationship that has spanned thirty-four years! Both Tim and Cheryl, and this congregation, have been through huge transition, but the bond has never been stronger. It was an important day of reflection, and for us it was a time to remember and celebrate all the partners that we are privileged to work beside. We could tell so many stories about faithful partnerships. You are a blessing! This has never been “Tim and Cheryl’s calling”, it is our collective calling. Our work is intimately connected to yours. So please, as God speaks to you about the opportunity that is before us, share your thoughts. Our decision without yours, is only half of a decision and it won’t work. We continue to count on your prayers as we near this important juncture. We will announce a final decision in the next letter, early in the new year—2014, wow! A very Merry Christmas to You and Your Family!! Fall 2013 Anticipation! Romans 15:2-6 in Eugene Peterson’s The Message says this: “God wants the combination of his steady, constant calling and warm, personal counsel in Scripture to come to characterize us, keeping us alert for whatever he will do next.” This is an important prayer for ACMI and the anticipation, right now, is palpable. We are just about to launch our brand new North Africa team! If partnership development (and fundraising) are completed before the end of the year, one of our couples will launch in January and a shorttermer will follow in February. This also marks the official beginning of a new partnership. There are two new couples in the candidate pipeline right now, and they will soon be joined by a third. One couple is headed to Tanzania for six months, one couple has set their sights on North Africa, and the third family is exploring a new field, and a really cool new partnership in Central Asia. May God grant us wisdom and discernment as we steward these new relationships and opportunities. Our booth at ICOM before the big crowd arrived - neat and pretty! PTL, it certainly did not look like this again! The booth was very busy this year with lots of ACMI family activity, lots of kids, many partners, several potential candidates , and quite a number of new contacts.

New Office Help We have some really fun news! One decision that we have made is that Cheryl needs relief in the financial part of her job. We have been praying, for a while, that God would guide us to the right person. Our desire was to find someone located near the office in Bridgeton. Well, recently a decision was made for Luke, Erika and Layla (our son, daughterin-law, and granddaughter) to move back to St. Louis. Erika has a degree in business, loves this kind of work and applied for the job. Not long after this we were introduced to a CPA (Marilyn) who has lots of experience in accounting both for profit and nonprofit and who actually teaches a “math for nonprofits” class at St Louis CONTACT INFO Forwarding Agent: Christian College. To make a long story short, we have engaged both, Erika as our new Office Accountant and Marilyn will be our financial consultant. Marilyn will meet with us, once a month, to look at our processes and books in preparation for an external review, scheduled for the end of next year. We look forward to this process. Chelsie and I drove to California to help move Luke, Erika and Layla back to St. Louis Cheryl, who had traveled to Nairobi for board meetings, returned about the same time and we enjoyed Thanksgiving Day with the whole family! Please pray for a smooth office staff transition and that God will show us what we need to learn through this review process.
