Testimonies of God's goodness:
  • We attended a prayer meeting this last Monday that was unexpectedly filled with people from our past who pray and support missionaries. This was a great reminder of how God orchestrates all things!
  • WOW (kid's program at The Rock-our sending church) is highlighting us as missionaries during their annual mission series this month. We are enjoying the opportunity to share with the kids and help them catch the vision for the adventure of God's leadership in their lives.
  • As we look at the year ahead, we continue to meditate on our family's theme verse: 1 Peter 1:22b "Love one another deeply, from the heart." We are learning to love others at every opportunity as we share the vision of our ministry. Thus far, it has been a great joy to tell the stories of God's faithful leadership in our lives. We pray the testimony of our lives, even in partnership development, challenges others to trust God's loving character and stand firmly on this as they strive to love others deeply in their daily lives.
