Missionary Spotlight Update: Jason and Cheryl Dietz

Jason and Cheryl Dietz and their children have just begun a yearlong stateside assignment. Every 5 years, missionaries across Europe must leave their country of service for a long period of time because of agreements between those countries and the United States. The Dietz family must be out for a full year.

Stateside assignment is often a bittersweet time for missionary families. They are eager to reconnect with family, friends, and favorite foods in America, but their thoughts are never far from their home across the pond and the important work that goes on there in their absence. The Dietzes are no different.

“We have 2 new [missionary] families—and 1 likely on the way—while we are gone,” Jason shared. “Pray for our national partners while we are gone . . . and for our team spread out over our 5 cities.”

Perhaps most heavy on Jason’s and Cheryl’s hearts is the fact that 2 of their children will be heading to university while on this stateside assignment and won’t be returning to Germany with the family next year. “That is a huge adjustment,” Jason admitted. The Dietz family appreciates your prayers during this time of adjustment.
