A Look Back at 2016

A Letter from our Executive Director

As we get into the holidays and the year closes, there is much to be thankful for related to the impact we saw on Servant Life trips. What immediately comes to my mind is the joy shared from one of our first groups to serve in Cuba; they saw 125 people profess faith in Christ during their week ministering to Cuban students and families.

We also heard…

“It was a great week with several coming to Christ … young and old alike!” – Phil B., Arkansas

“All of our ministry opportunities were great. We completely fell in love with the people of Bulgaria – especially the Roma…It was one of the best all-around mission trips I have ever taken a team on. God willing we will be returning to Bulgaria. I am praying that we can establish a long-term presence and partnership there.” – Brian P., Mississippi

“Best part-Many students were able to share the gospel, to disciple other students and adults, and to worship in unity with the Kunama (North Africa) people.” – Devin P., Missouri

“I loved getting to work with South Asians…I felt like I was in another country but really the whole time I was still in the states. It’s crazy how you can reach the nations in one city here in the U.S. I loved getting to learn about different religions and getting to work with those people. It really gave me a larger burden for the lost.” – Erin H., A1eight Participant in NYC

Your prayers and support are vital to the impact of these teams.

  • Please pray for those that are already going and that many more would be willing to go serve every tribe, tongue and nation. The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2)
  • In 2017, Servant Life will have its largest year mobilizing over 800 students and leaders, but we cannot accomplish the task without the faithful support of partners like you. Your giving not only helps students go, but supports the daily work of each of our global partners on the field. Please consider joining our team with either a one-time or monthly financial support. * Give online here or via check mailed to PO Box 36307, Birmingham, AL 35236.

I trust you too have much to be thankful for and celebrate. Blessings to you and your family as we end 2016.


Until the whole world knows,

J. Roger Davis
