Again, I must say, thank you so much for your prayers. We had a lovely time on Sunday doing mission related work. Sunday morning Dustan spoke at our church- which he will be doing for the next few weeks.
Our church is taking a new approach to missions that is very exciting for Dustan and I to see. Just you wait- Garden Heights will be sending out more missionaries very soon!
That evening we spoke at Eastview Baptist in Belleville. We gained both financial support and prayer support, but I have to say that more than that, Eastview sent us home with bucket loads of encouragement! That church has a beautifully soft heart when it comes to missions, and we are excited to partner with them as we prepare for Ecuador.
Eastview, we love you guys and can’t wait to visit you again right before we leave!
Our new home has been blessing us. The private time has allowed us to re-focus as a family- to pray together, to grow together, and to re-excite ourselves for what God has called us to do.
Please continue to pray for us. Pray specifically for the following two things:
That God will send a massive amount of financial support our way. We need to raise about 2000/mo in promises. God can do it- please pray.
That Dustan and I will be able to do all those last minute things that need to be done. Books need to be read, reports need to be read, vaccinations need to be gotten, visas, plane tickets, etc. There is a lot to do.
We love you all and covet your support, prayers, and encouragement.
