Impacting the Next Generation

By Terri & Andreas Mehrguth
Directors, e3 Legacy

During the recent election, many commentaries addressed the debt that our future generations will incur.  While people are legitimately concerned for our future generations, personally we have hope because of children like McKenna (13), Cassie (12), and Delaney (11). They know that prayer changes things; they believe that no time is better than now to share the gospel with the lost, and they understand that they can make a difference in people’s future, their eternal future. Their young age doesn’t stop them; they recognize that they have the same Holy Spirit to rely on as we “older people” do. It was so inspiring to minister alongside these young girls and their fathers in the Amazon basin this past June.

If you were one of the nearly 200 people who attended the recent e3Legacy FILM FESTIVAL 2012, an event to honor God and to thank you for five years of partnering with e3 Legacy by praying, giving, going, then you would have seen the girls’ “praying” picture. The theme for the evening was “What Moves You?” Well, what moves us is seeing our future generation going for it, stepping out in boldness to share about God’s love. They’ve experienced the power of God doing radical things through them, and they’re walking in obedience to God’s call.

Something else that moves us is YOU!

We are humbled by what God has done through YOU to take the story of His great love to 19 countries on 4 continents in 2012!

It is sobering to see the great need around the world. Fortunately, the Lord calls us to just do our part in sharing His love story with those who don’t know Him, yet. It’s a big task, but we only need to focus on our part of this task. At e3 Legacy, our part is to give you opportunities to pray for the harvest, give toward the harvest, and go to reap the harvest.  And in the past five years, e3 Legacy has steadily increased—through your partnership—to bring in an ABUNDANT HARVEST!


We truly are moved by what God has done and continues to do. Clearly, God is working through e3 Legacy, and we desire to come alongside Him and trust Him even more for His growth in helping families—families like McKenna, Delaney, and Cassie’s— to be on mission with Him. briefly, this next year’s ministry focus, aside from taking the gospel to the nations, includes continuing to increase staff, to train more leaders, and to mobilize even more North Americans to the field by developing partnerships with more churches and partnerships with nationally-based family ministries into more countries in 2013. But before we’re in Dallas, we’ll be ministering again, this time in Cambodia over New Year’s, with a team of 20, including McKenna, Delaney, and their dad!

Help Carry the Momentum Into 2013!

Thank you for allowing us to share this journey of helping families become Great Commission focused.

Please consider how you can help mobilize more people like McKenna, Cassie, and Delaney, so that when they’re “all grown up” and dealing with the repercussions over our country’s spending, they’ll have an eternal focus as they navigate future challenges.
