Funny thing about horizons… They have a way of continuing to expand.
This year has gotten off to a great start. Jenn and I were able to attend the Calvery Chapel missions conference which is always been a great treat for me. To be able to share it with my bride and ministry partner this year was like having my cake and eating it too. Being able to see old friends and meet new ones from all around the world really helped re-solidify the calling God has upon our lives. The feedback that I’ve gotten from every missionary I’ve talked to is that the ministry God has given us is so important. Some of them with tear-filled eyes tried to express their joy and gratitude for someone to care for them in the way the Lord has led us to do. Missionaries need care, missionaries are not super-spiritual Christian all-stars. Missionaries are normal people with normal hurts, fears, and issues. To let them know they are not forgotten and minister to them in every and any way that we can is our great passion and a God-given gift to us.
Another one of the multi-faceted ways we have been able to care for missionaries so far this year was in the assembling of a team to help process year-end tax statements of donations. As we folded letters, stuffed and sealed envelopes, stamped, and delivered them to the post office, I was reminded of God’s great faithfulness and provision for His missionaries and our privilege to care for them in this way.
There was so much more that could be shared about this month. Just to mention a few, the sending of more than 15 people to the mission field, leading a trip to Mexico to deliver furniture to a special-needs orphanage there, and being able to teach Chapel three times in South Asia.
Praise God that Tim now has really good health insurance for only $160 a month. We are so grateful for that, however, we are seeking assistance to help cover that cost. We are also in need of financial assistance to cover the costs of providing care for missionaries. If you would like to partner with us in this, your support through prayer and finances would be greatly appreciated. We are still in need of people who wish to partner with us.
We are most appreciative of you who have already joined us in this area, and we are grateful that we have reached 1/2 of our monthly support needs. If the Lord leads you to join us financially, you can do so by clicking here to become a financial partner or by mailing your support check to:
