Enduring In the Will of God

For you have need of endurance, so that after you have done the will of God, you may receive the promise

Hebrews 10:36

Sometimes updates are easy to write and other times they aren’t. This is one of those not-so-easy updates simply because this month was made up of the everyday, ordinary things rather than the highlights.

Youth Group

Thank you for your prayers for the youth group that we started on January 24th! After our first meeting it was apparent that we aren’t ready to start yet. With one student and three leaders, it hardly felt like your typical youth group and everyone felt a little out of place. We are continuing to pray that God would work in our midst and give us wisdom in how to faithfully minister to the student He has placed in the ministry as we wait for more to come.

Young Adults

The young adults group has remained pretty constant and we are excited to see the Lord work in each person’s life. God has been answering prayers in the lives of the group and we feel honored to be here to walk alongside them and see the Lord’s faithfulness play out. 

This weekend the young adults group from Calvary Chapel Santa Rosa was in Tahoe for a retreat and we were able to join them for their session on Friday night and again on Saturday. We had a wonderful time fellowshipping with old and new friends alike.

The Car Situation

Praise God, we were able to purchase a 2005 Subaru Outback to replace the Outback that was totaled by the tree limb in December. We are still waiting for our Civic to be repaired but I was told that it should be done by Monday, March 7th so hopefully that will be the case and we will have two cars once again! Thank you for praying for that whole situation.

Upcoming Trip

I am very excited to have the opportunity to go on a mission trip to Hungary at the end of August to help run several Gospel-centered English camps. Fletcher will accompany me but Isaac will not be able to go. The trip is dependent upon receiving Fletcher’s passport in time but we need his social security card first. Please pray for the process to go smoothly and for his documents to come in time.

That’s pretty much it! Seasons like this one remind us that we need endurance in this race we are running. We don’t see everything God is doing and there doesn’t seem to be very much fruit, but we believe and trust that He IS working and that we just need to be faithful to continue in what He has called us to. So although this month didn’t seem very exciting, we had an opportunity to exercise endurance and we thank you for your prayers and support that encourage us to continue on.

With love,

Hope, Isaac, & Fletcher
