Thankful Hearts

We have so many things to be thankful for.  God has blessed this nation in a great way and with that comes a responsibility for us to pass that blessing on to others.  Thanksgiving time brings this into focus like no other time of year.  We pray that you had a wondeful Thanksgiving holiday.  What a great time we had over the Thanksgiving weekend.  Wonderful time with family sharing good times and a lot of laughs.  Especially meaningful knowing that we won't be here next year for the holidays.

We are moving forward and beginning to pack up some of the items in the house preparing for when the Lord opens the door for us to move.

Dana is preparing to begin the "Perspectives" classes next week that WGM asks that we take in preparation for serving on the mission field.  Dan is planning on following in a week or so in beginning his classes.

Things continue to move forward as we raise our support team.  We are so thankful for those that have committed to being prayer warriors for us, and for those that are financially supporting us. 

In Him,

Amazing Grace

Today was missions Sunday at church and it was such a blessing to have so many missionaries come and share their passion.  There were also many local ministries represented.

Ryan and Johanna Flemming from The Revolution Church in Gary, IN, and Robyn Moore from Kenya came and shared how God had called them into full-time service in their respective ministries. 

We have been able to be with Ryan and Johanna in Gary during The Revolution's Christmas food drop.  How moving it is to see the church leave the building and to partner alongside The Revolution Church and show the love and mercy of Jesus to people by simply telling them that Jesus loves them and handing out food.  Congratulations on 13 years in Gary Ryan and Johanna!

What a special lady Robyn Moore is.  We have been privileged to spend time with her in Kenya on several occasions doing ministry, worshipping and fellowshipping, all of which have been great experiences.  Robyn shared this morning some of  the stories of her ministry, The Least of These, and you can see the passion and compassion that she has for children.  Her dedication is contagious and inspiring.  We look forward to working with Robyn next year in Kenya.  Congratulations Robyn on 30 years of service in Kenya!

The road to full-time ministry can be difficult and challenging.  It's only through the power of Jesus that we can accomplish anything.  We lean each and every day on Him for guidance, wisdom, and endurance.  We thank God for each and every one of you that we know are praying for us and encouraging us as we press on.

What a great weekend!  It started off with spending time with some friends of ours on Friday night sharing our story and God's call on our life, and also getting to hear of their mission trip to India.  It is so good to spend time with people who have a passion for reaching the lost.  We were so blessed with the time we spent with them on Friday night.

Saturday we celebrated the 4th anniversary of Dana being cancer free!  We praise God for that and thank Him for the lessons He taught us through this difficult trial in our lives.

Sunday we started off our morning at church listening to the stories of several missionaries, including Christian Melendez from El Sembrador Boys School in Honduras.  This is a World Gospel Mission partner who is making a great impact on young mens lives in Honduras.  Next we had the privilege of sharing our story and mission with the Acts 29 small church class at NMC.  What an amazing time of fellowship it was.  Many of the class members have been to the Baby Centre and there was a lot of interest about how God is moving in Kenya.

We are each called by Jesus in the Great Commission to go and make disciples of all nations.  We know that everyone is not called to go to another country, but if we can serve in helping you to complete your calling by your partnering with us in some way with our ministry we would love the opportunity.

Moving Ahead...

We had a fantastic time working with Feed My Starving Children at Nappanee Missionary Church this past weekend, and a great time fellowshipping with them at our home Saturday evening.  We were able to share what God is doing at the AGC Baby Centre, and are looking at opportunities to partner with them in the future.

Things continue to move at a fast pace with us.  We have two speaking engagements this weekend and we are looking at starting some of our Bible training in the next two weeks.

Thank you to so many of you for your continued support and prayers.  We appreciate each and everyone of you.  You are a blessing to us!
