Would you like to contribute financially on a monthly basis to my missionary work?  Here are a couple of ways: (1) Send the contribution to Emmaus Road Church and specifically mark it as “missionary fund for Todd Wood”, or (2) You are welcome to give directly to me.  Thank you! Thank you so much!

Prayer requests:

  • Thank you for your ongoing prayers for my family and ministry in eastern Idaho.
  • Please continue to pray for the healing of Pastor Warren Cuppy’s lungs, his respiratory system from the effects of COVID-19, and his enlarged aorta.
  • Please pray for the future expansion space of the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission.

My four current ministry objectives:

  • Be a servant missionary-pastor with Providence Downtown Church that specifically ministers to the incarcerated, the addicted, the homeless, and the impoverished.  It is a church ministering and bringing mercy to those in the margins.
  • Pulpit supply and pastoral encouragement to the Shepherd of the Falls Lutheran Church family in American Falls and to the Seasoned By Grace Fellowship in Pocatello.
  • Minister as a pastor with the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission.
  • Be a blessing to the pastors in Idaho Falls and throughout the region through the Eastern Idaho Pastors Coalition (EIPC).

May Jesus reign as King!
