All we can do is marvel at the goodness of God. This has been a rollercoaster; fundraising and all the travel that it entails has been "a grind" as Vince often says but the Lord our God has been faithful. Everything we have comes from Him. We are at 48% of our monthly support for the first 2 years!
We've bumped back our move date to the following week, November 4th, to accommodate for my shoulder surgery which has been scheduled for October 25th. Thank you for praying for wisdom. We don't doubt He can lead us in these difficult decisions. While I'm a little nervous and it will be challenging to squeeze that in before we move, it seems like the right thing to do.
We just got home from the NAB Church Planter's Summit held in Chicago yesterday. That was a whirlwind. There aren't many things as encouraging as meeting other people who have been led by God to step out in faith to do a crazy thing for God and to hear how He has sustained them and even more, how He has used them to lead people to Him! We believe God is at work and we are excited to get on the ground in Utah.
”I lift up my eyes to the mountains—
where does my help come from?
My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth...
…indeed, he who watches over Israel
will neither slumber nor sleep.”
Psalm 121:1, 2, 4
I've found great rest in the truth of these verses. God doesn't sleep, so I can both rest and sleep in peace. I know He is able to help me, He's the maker of heaven and earth!
Please join us on October 23rd at 6:00 pm for a going away party at Salt Creek Baptist Church. We'll have chili, a bounce house for the kids, and a good time. It will be special for us to have a chance to say, “see you later!”
If you’d like to partner with us in prayer or financial support, we’d be so grateful. You can find the button to give below. We love you and are so grateful to have you in our corner! We'd love to hear how we can pray for you!
