What an awesome God we serve!!!! We had a wonderful experience Sunday being able to be back at our home church - Nappanee Missionary Church. Pastor Dave interviewed us in the three services in the main sanctuary and also introduced us in the two services in the Connection gym. We also had the opportunity to share in three small church classrooms. We were overwhelmed with the response to us and our ministry. The message was on paths, plans and ways. Pastor Dave asked us to share a little about the path God has called us to, and guided us down. It is always amazing to look back and be able to see God's guiding hand in our lives. Pastor Dave then asked for those who felt God leading them, to partner with us financially. He also explained that we had bought tickets to leave on August 19th in faith that God would provide all that we needed. The need was great by human standards, $80,000.00. But, our God is a God of abundance. Through the grace of God, and the obedience of His people to share their resources, we are so elated to say that we are 100% funded. Pastor Dave called us late this afternoon to let us know. There are no words that can truly convey our feelings right now. We have abundant joy and peace that God has provided in such a tangible way.
Thank you to all of our new ministry partners, and those who have been and continue to be our ministry partners, we are truly blessed. Please continue to lift us up in prayer as a ministry team, Satan does not like it when God's people move together like this.
We leave this Sunday at noon to go to Marion, WGM Headquarters for our final training in preparation to go. We will be there for one week and then be back home to start saying our goodbyes and packing.
We have also in the last days had to say goodbye to some wonderful new friends at MTI. We continue as best we can to stay in touch, many have already left for their fields and it makes it difficult to stay in contact. Our hearts and prayers will be with each of them as they follow God's calling in their lives. We look forward to the day when we will all be together again.
Thank you Father, God for your provision!
Blessings and many, many THANKS!!!
