WCC sends short term teams to work at the TCM campus. Westlink also supplies four scholarships to students from closed countries (closed to missionaries) in Asia. Pray for these brave students serving in dangerous areas and still pursuing further theological training. Pastor Gene Carlson frequently teaches at TCM, Austria and in the Eastern Europe satellite campuses.

December 15, 2011 – Looking to fill a position at TCM
Dear Friends at Westlink,
After having served with TCMII for the past seven years, Robert and Sunny Torres have decided to explore other opportunities to serve the Lord during 2012. A definite date for their transition has not yet been set, but in anticipation of their departure from Haus Edelweiss we are beginning the search process for a Coordinator of Food Services and an Assistant in Food Services . Because of your partnership with TCM we wanted to share this information with you before the announcement is made to the general public. If you know of anyone within your network who might be interested and qualified in serving at Haus Edelweiss in either of the positions please share the following announcement with them.
POSITIONS AVAILABLE AT THE TCM INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE
HAUS EDELWEISS, AUSTRIA
TCMII is now accepting Resumes for two full-time, year-round positions at Haus Edelweiss in Heiligenkreuz, Austria. TCMII is looking for either a mature married couple or two single persons with pertinent professional and life experience. The food services ministry area currently prepares corporate meals to serve up to 150 persons during nine academic sessions and graduation each year with the help of several volunteers each session.
The Coordinator of Food Services will be expected to have high-level skills and experience in the area of food services ministry. This person will serve as the Chef de Cuisine/Head Cook. The scope of responsibilities will include planning menus, purchasing supplies, and preparing corporate meals while maintaining hygienic kitchen standards. We are seeking an individual who has dietary/nutrition training with culinary arts experience in preparing foods that are part of healthy lifestyle choices.
The Assistant in Food Services will be expected to have suitable skills and experience in the area of food services ministry and will serve in a supportive role to the Coordinator of Food Services. With the help of volunteers, this assistant must be able to get meals on the tables when the Coordinator of Food Services is not available. The scope of responsibilities will include preparing raw foods needed for the Coordinator of Food Services to cook the corporate meals, maintaining the kitchen and its equipment, and supervising the dish room staff and activities. It is anticipated that additional responsibilities outside food services will be added to this position in the first year of employment.
Both positions require strong relational, administrative, computer and organizational skills and experience. Responsibilities for both positions include training and supervising teams of volunteers, including leading them in daily devotions during sessions in order to fulfill the TCMII mission and vision. As our students come from 35 countries, cross-cultural experience and multi-language capabilities are helpful. The goal is to have these positions filled by spring 2012.
Please direct all Cover Letters and Resumes with references to Julie Yeater, European Director of Operations, at email@example.com. Job descriptions are available upon request.

September, 2011 – Celebrate Tony’s 20th year with TCM
Tony Twist -President of TCM from July 1991 to 2011 (and counting!)
A milestone celebration is brewing; please consider being a part of it.
Dear Friends at Westlink
Can it really be 20 years?
In fact, it has been 20 years since Tony and Suzanne Twist came to TCM and in those 20 years many have felt their influence.
The Board of TCM will be honoring Tony and Suzanne at the November board meeting. THIS IS A SURPRISE AND YOU ARE INVITED TO BE PART OF IT!
Tony and Suzanne will be presented with a plaque honoring their years of service. They will also be presented with a Book of Memories and Remembrances. It is our intention to fill this book with letters from students, graduates, National Directors, faculty, staff, Board members, and friends.
In order to get your memories inserted in the book we need your help right away. Please consider taking a few minutes to reflect on the impact that Tony and Suzanne have had on your life and then write a brief letter of thanks, send a picture, or jot down a humorous story. PLEASE, PLEASE, send your good-wishes this week so your memory can be included in this book that they will read again and again. We need to have your letters, cards, or pictures by October 15, 2011.
For those of you overseas, please e-mail your thoughts or letters to firstname.lastname@example.org. In the subject line write “In honor of the Twists.” For those of you in the US, send your letters to TCM, C/O Carol Fields, PO Box 24560, Indianapolis, IN 46224 or e-mail them to email@example.com.
We look forward to presenting the Twists with this book and honoring them by remembering their service to the Kingdom and TCM. You will want to have your memories included in this very special Book of Memories and Remembrances.
Thank you in advance for your contribution to this celebration honoring Tony and Suzanne.
John M. Duke
Chairman of the Board

July 14, 2011 – TCM_NACC Review
Last week was a great week at the North American Christian Convention! For those of you who attended and stopped by the TCM booth, it was good to see and visit with you for a few minutes. We had the opportunity to visit with many old friends and become acquainted with many new ones as well.
It was good to see what God is doing in the Christian community throughout the world. So many aspects of ministry and building of God’s Kingdom were represented by the booths in the Exhibition Hall. While moving from booth to booth, one could travel to and learn about many ministry locations both domestic and international.
On Thursday morning the European Evangelistic Society (EES) Walker Lecture Breakfast was attended by 125 friends of EES. Over breakfast Dr. Loren Stuckenbruck shared from Revelation 4 and 5 about heaven and the joy of worship there. The event concluded with a brief appearance by Anita Renfroe, comedienne and spokesperson for TCM’s Priscilla Initiative, who shared her uplifting brand of humor with us.
Later in the day on Thursday, TCM sponsored the Afternoon Session with Anita Renfroe. With the help of 23 volunteers we assisted in seating the women who had attended the Ladies Luncheon over the noon hour. We sincerely thank those of you who volunteered for that event. Your love of TCM was expressed once more as you gave of your time to help when needed. Once everyone was seated, Anita entertained us with her unique comedic interpretation of life. There was much laughter in the hall as she sang and spoke on many topics. On a more serious note, she highlighted her passion for the Priscilla Initiative and its mission to scholarship TCM’s women students.
For those of you who were unable to attend the NACC we hope to see you November 17 – 20 at the National Missionary Convention in Atlanta or at the 2012 NACC in Orlando, Florida.
Blessings on your journey,
Debbie Poer, Director of Global Outreach
