Meet the Team: Chicago!

Thank you so much for your prayers during our preparation for this summer! I'm Sydney, half of the Project 52 Chicago team. Becky and I are two southern gals who will be spending our summer sharing the love of Christ with people right here in North America. We are really looking forward to sharing the gospel with the people we meet, and we wanted to make sure you got to know us too!

Becky is the team leader for the summer. She loves both studying and playing music, and she really enjoys worshipping the Lord through singing.

I (Sydney) love all things related to culture, so I am so excited that people from every tribe, tongue, and nation will worship together in heaven one day. I also really enjoy writing, so you'll be hearing from me quite a bit this summer.

We made it to Chicago and are ready to begin our work. We will be in one of the most diverse zip codes in America, creating meaningful connections and sharing the gospel. We will also be helping local evangelical witnesses and workers gather information on the people groups represented in this cultural epicenter. Chicago is often considered the "forgotten city" when it comes to mission work, so we are glad to conduct research to hopefully help the workers here better understand the people groups.

Please pray for the following:
  • our adjustment to the area
  • that the Holy Spirit will work in the hearts of those we meet
  • that we will use everything we have to make His name known throughout Chicago
  • that God would give us wisdom and a strategy to conduct our research and share the gospel with such a diverse community
Sending love from Sweet Home Chicago,
