Some fell on good earth, and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams. Matthew 13:8
Open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest —John 4:35
It’s been over 3 decades now since I wrote my very first missionary support letter. It was to support the 6 month outreach tour I would take throughout Europe back in 1984. Only 2 1/2 years old in the Lord, it would be a trip that would change the course of my life forever. It was mind blowing to see the favor God was giving us, along with the openness of the youth to the gospel. I couldn’t do anything else but return year after year, and go through those God appointed doors where the truth was being received effectively. Those doors would eventually lead us to planting the first Calvary Chapel in Western Europe just 4 years later in 1988.
A wide door for effective service —I Co 16:9
Now after 25 years of living in Germany, and a 5 year sabbatical in the States. Sue and I have been asked to take the leadership of “Schloss Heroldeck.” Calvary Chapels retreat center in Millstatt, Austria. Once there, we hope to finish a lifelong dream and establish a school of discipleship/evangelism & music ministry. For us, this is an even wider open door to minister to Europe effectively.
To finish His work Jn 4:34
In January of 2018, Sue and I move back to Europe, and we’re calling upon those who might consider partnering with us. Please pray about being a part of our home support team, both prayerfully and practically. There’s no way we can do this without a team on the Homefront sending us out.
Many think this is a paid position, but it’s not (ergo this letter). Please note that This particular support letter is a one time THING
In the future, you will receive more newsletters and more details of how God is leading us.

IN HIS SERVICE, Nick & Sue Long
My name is Pastor Mike Thiemann and I have the privilege of leading Saving Grace World Missions and working directly with our missionaries all over the world.
You are receiving this e-mail because Nick and Sue Long have added you to their personal e-mail list. Also, If you wish to sign up to receive monthly prayer requests from the Long’s and the rest of our Missionaries, you can do so by CLICKING HERE and filling out the e-mail sign up form.
If you desire to partner with Nick and Sue Long financially you can do so in a couple of different ways –
Electronically (Check or Card) – Either click the button below that says, “Become a Financial Partner” or visit their website at sgwm.com/long. That will take you to our donation page where you will find a couple of different options. The main two I would like to highlight is the, “single gift” option and the, “monthly gift “option. The single gift option is there for you if you desire to give a one-time gift and the “monthly gift” option is there if you desire to give on an ongoing basis. If you click that it will ask you what date you would like your gift to be processed (on the 3rd or the 18th). I would highly encourage you to consider the monthly gift option simply because it helps the Long’s manage their budget and know how much is coming in and on what day.
Check or Cash – You are welcome to send in a check or cash to – 17451 Bastanchury Rd. Suite 203 Yorba Linda CA, 92886. If you send a check please make it payable to Saving Grace World Missions and in the Memo Line write – “Long”.

Another very practical way you can help SGWM better support the Long’s, as well as all of our missionaries is to “Like” our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter.
