Amber Stark, Sofie
Amber Stark works with Life Impact Ministries in Slovakia. She operates a guest house, the Good Book Oasis, which is a place of rest and restoration for missionaries and pastors and their families. Scenic Park Bible Church supported Amber's parents, Kenn and Lesa Stark, from when they started their missionary service to Spain in 1983 until their retirement. For several months in 2000 we partnered with Amber in a short-term Missions project in Russia. We have been supporting Amber since 2009.
Amber grew up as an MK (missionary kid), and as an adult participated in ministries in Russia, South Korea, and the Philippines. After receiving a degree in education, she taught in South Korea for two years. After returning to the United States, God called her to the ministry of missionary care. Her experiences growing up on the mission field and as a missionary herself have taught her the great need for places of rest for missionaries. After joining Life Impact Ministries in 2008, she moved to Slovakia to open the Good Book Oasis for missionaries to have a place to come with their families and spend time together away from the stresses of ministry life. Since opening in 2009, the Good Book Oasis has hosted over 300 missionaries and pastors from over 30 ministry locations!
In the fall of 2015 God blessed Amber with a Slovak daughter, Sofie (Feb 2015), through adoption. Sofie enjoys entertaining the guests and giving hugs. Amber enjoys “spoiling” her missionary guests with good food – especially chocolate chip cookies!
Please pray for a permanent partner to work alongside Amber in Slovakia. The ministry is constantly growing and she needs a full-time worker to help her.
