Trent & Amy Pruett :: Children – Jackson, Braden & Trinity
In 2004 we received the call to foreign missions. Our lives have never been boring since! Specifically we feel drawn to Asia, Southeast Asia particularly. We began our missionary service in Ban Nam Khem, Thailand. We spent a couple of years serving under an established work of a seasoned missionary family. This seasoned missionary family also happened to be Todd Pruett – Trent’s older brother. Not only were we honored to meet the practical needs of the people in Ban Nam Khem, but the Lord did great things! Ministry to the poor, Discipleship Training, Outreaches, “The Jungle School”, healing and salvations were all in an ordinary’s day work! It was a painful time as the Lord shut that door of ministry, as we wanted to continue. We all relocated to Northern Thailand to work on the language & it was during that time that we knew our “Training Time” had been completed. Todd & Carrie released us into our destiny. I think deep down in our hearts we would all LOVE to be working together, but we have agreed that is not the Lord’s plan. We moved back to America for fresh vision & FIRE!
Once stateside we joined the FIRE Community and ultimately joined with their Missions board. It was also during this time that the Lord opened the door for our family to return to the mission field in Asia. We are currently serving in Davao City, Philippines. Our family is adjusting to the culture, establishing key relationships and learning the language during our first year. Trent is currently serving as Chaplain to a business started by our family friends in Charlotte, North Carolina. We are honored to be shepherding the hearts of the people!!!
Isaiah 61 sums up our ministry call! We have had many dreams and visions concerning our call. They all align with Isaiah 61. Lord willing, we look forward to more Salvations, Divine Healing, Discipleship, Ministry to the Poor & being instruments of Justice for the Kingdom to abused & broken people!!!
HERE WE ARE LORD – USE US!
The Year of the LORD’s Favor
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me,
because the LORD has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor
and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes, the oil of joy
instead of mourning, and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor.
They will rebuild the ancient ruins
and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities
that have been devastated for generations.
Strangers will shepherd your flocks;
foreigners will work your fields and vineyards.
And you will be called priests of the LORD,
you will be named ministers of our God.
You will feed on the wealth of nations,
and in their riches you will boast.
Instead of your shame
you will receive a double portion,
and instead of disgrace
you will rejoice in your inheritance.
And so you will inherit a double portion in your land,
and everlasting joy will be yours.
“For I, the LORD, love justice;
I hate robbery and wrongdoing.
In my faithfulness I will reward my people
and make an everlasting covenant with them.
Their descendants will be known among the nations
and their offspring among the peoples.
All who see them will acknowledge
that they are a people the LORD has blessed.”
I delight greatly in the LORD;
my soul rejoices in my God.
For he has clothed me with garments of salvation
and arrayed me in a robe of his righteousness,
as a bridegroom adorns his head like a priest,
and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.
For as the soil makes the sprout come up
and a garden causes seeds to grow,
so the Sovereign LORD will make righteousness
and praise spring up before all nations.
