Introducing Interim Development Coordinator, Austin Lindemulder

Dear friends and supporters of One Body One Hope,

It is with great delight that we announce a new ministry endeavor of One Body One Hope: our first full-time employee. Our board has finalized plans to hire Austin Lindemulder. You can read Austin’s bio below, but for a quick frame of reference, Austin was the catalyst that started the bridge project and also one of the four Dordt engineering majors who saw it through to completion. Austin has been to Liberia on three trips with OBOH, and our Liberian friends call him “The Commander." In a way that only God could have orchestrated, it has become apparent to both Austin and the leadership of OBOH that this is the logical and very exciting next step in our ministry growth. We hope you agree and offer Austin your prayers and warm welcome!

Austin’s title will be Interim Development Coordinator and his job will have components in both the US and Liberia. On this side of the Atlantic, Austin will work primarily with growth and ministry development, furthering the reach of OBOH and expanding our donor base. He will also be an integral part of our teams as he works to coordinate communications and streamline processes. In Liberia, Austin will be a programs catalyst, helping implement ideas and strategies and helping coordinate new ministry endeavors. It is our hope that Austin will split his time between the US and Liberia, but specific timeframes and trip dates have not yet been set. However, we plan to have Austin officially begin his year-long, interim position (with a review and potential extension of employment) on June 1.

For now, please keep Austin in your prayers! And please take a moment to consider if the Lord is leading you to help support Austin's ministry efforts. We plan to have 100% of his salary and expenses raised by the time he begins on June 1. It's a BIG goal but we believe God has led us to this point and we believe he will provide! How? Through generosity and partnership with people like YOU. Want to get involved or more information about Austin? 

Thank you so much sharing our joy! 

Grace and peace,
One Body One Hope
