2023 Prayer Letters



"With no reservations, I would like to recommend my son, Nate, and his family to you as your representatives on the field of Iceland. In his role as pastor at the church he started in 2015, he has demonstrated the leadership and vision that will be a great help to him on the field. He has been faithful to the Lord his whole life and is now leading his home with the help of his godly wife, Rachel, to also be faithful to the Lord."


As Pastor of Greater Cumberland Baptist Church, I am highly grateful that you are considering partnering with the Nate Shaver family, our missionaries to Iceland. They and the Michael Shaver family will be making a phenomenal team to help establish a godly and biblical foundation in a country destitute of the gospel. I am asking that you pray how YOU may hold their ropes.
