Hello friends and family!
It’s been quite a while since I have had the pleasure of updating you on what is going on in my life and ministry. Thank you for all of your prayers for the delivery of my son, Fletcher! I went into labor on May 7th and delivered him safely at home at 1 am on May 10th. It was the most challenging thing I have ever done but praise be to God for keeping us and allowing us to persevere through your prayers for us. I needed every prayer and am so thankful for each of you.
Since that blessed day there have been many inherent challenges in becoming a mom but God has been steadfastly faithful to carry us through those as well. Fletcher and I are both healthy and he is developing in leaps and bounds. He just rolled from his tummy to his back on his own today! I was able to take a full 12 weeks of maternity leave thanks to your generous financial support and I started back at work in my new position as financial assistant on the first Monday of August. Since then I have had the privilege of coming alongside our financial department to send funds all over the world in some routine and some short notice situations. Please pray for us as we are navigating several issues in wiring funds internationally. So far we have been able to find other means but it has taken a toll on the whole department and set us behind in other routine matters.
It is such a joy to be able to lift up the arms of our other financial staff members and simply be available to take over tasks that had been weighing heavily upon their shoulders. I also count it a great privilege to be able to step in and help get funds from our office and into the hands of the workers around the world so that Gospel centered ministry can take place among the unreached. Thank YOU for being a part of that! Because of your giving and God’s grace we were able to get the proper funds to several of our Bible College campuses on short notice so that they could start their semesters! Due to COVID restrictions they didn’t know if they would be able to begin so once they got the green light they wanted to start the following week and praise God, we were able to get them the money to do it! May God bless their semesters and bring many returns on your investment and mine.
- Pray that we would be able to get funds to our workers without hinderance so that they can continue in the work God has called them to.
- Pray for our staff to remain focused and joyful in the work before us.
- Pray that God would bring me more financial partners to help offset the salary change from working full-time to now part-time.
