Mercy in the Margins (April – 2022)

Greetings friends,

Time has flown! God is good! Jesus is faithful in our midst!

Here are some of the highlights from the past three months:

  • January 13: One of our IFRM staff took a leave of absence because he was diagnosed with esophagus cancer.
  • January 20: Attended a pastors prayer meeting in Pocatello (8 pastors)
  • January 21: Salt Lake School of Theology Church History Colloquium with Dr. Stephen Presley
  • February 2: EIPC luncheon at IFRM (11 pastors)
  • February 10: Shared a Bible devotional after an IFRM staff breakfast
  • February 16: Officiated for a funeral in American Falls
  • March 2: EIPC luncheon at Champs Heart (16 ministers)
  • March 5: Taught a Bible lesson on Solomon at the Men’s Engage Retreat at Old Faithful Christian Ranch
  • March 13: Four-year anniversary service for Providence Downtown Church
  • March 26: Providence river baptism service
  • March 27: Season by Grace Fellowship – ordination of Pastor Jamie Mayer

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 Providence Downtown Church and specifically mark it as “missionary fund for Todd Wood”, or (2) You are welcome to give directly to me.  Thank you so much!

Prayer requests:

  • Thank you for your ongoing prayers for my ministry in eastern Idaho.
  • Pray for the men enrolled in the Navigate Discipleship Program at the Idaho Falls Rescue Mission. We have three men in the program.

My four current ministry objectives:

  • Be a servant missionary-pastor with Providence Downtown Church which 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.
  • Bring Bible messages 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!

Todd Wood (downtown missionary)
