Big Weekend Ahead

Starting Thursday at noon we will be extremely busy with our team getting ready for and having our 6th Annual Mozambique Team Garage Sale. This year it will be held at the House of Faith Building. We think it is going to be a great location. If you have anything you want to donate to the garage sale feel free to drop it off at House of Faith starting Thursday at noon. No appliances please.

Over the weekend we added $50.00 to the fund for this summers trip and $250.00 for our full time support. Praise God! We are are so ready but we know and trust that He knows when.

Well, that's the update for now. Please continue to pray for the people who we will meet this summer in Mozambique. Pray that God will continue to prepare their hearts to receive the truth of the Gospel.

Moving Right Along ...

Well, we are now officially 86 days away from leaving for our Mission trip this summer to Mozambique. At times it seems so far away yet other times it seems so close. We can't wait to get back to Mozambique. We are so excited to get back and do the work the Lord has for us. We are also very excited to stay the extra week this year and learn more about what and when we will be able to go Full Time to Africa.

Since this past Thursday we have received $1,400.00 to add toward our trip this summer. We now have $4,643.00 of the $7,500.00 needed for this mission trip. It is amazing to watch how God provides for us on this journey.

We will have our 6th annual Mozambique Mission Team Garage Sale next weekend, May 2nd and 3rd. We will be collecting things at House of Faith on Thursday, May 1st starting at noon. Then we will sell on Friday and Saturday. Last year each team member got about $400.00 from this fundraiser.

We have been extremely busy with church, school, soccer and baseball. We will continue to update our blog as things continue to come together for our journey.

Thank you so much for praying for our family and for supporting us as we continue to walk with the Lord!

Wait for the Lord ...

God took me to a verse tonight in Psalms 27:14 ... Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. There was a scripture reference to Lamentations 3:24-26 ... I say to myself, "The Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait on him." The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord. In the commentary on the bottom of my bible it says ... "God calls us to hope in and wait for the Lord because often He uses waiting to refresh, renew and teach us."

This is exactly where we are at. Waiting!!! God is good and He continues to refresh, renew and teach us new things daily. He has continued to provide financially for the trip this summer to Dindiza, we are almost 1/2 way funded for this trip. Praise God!!! We also have $1,000.00 "seed" money for our long term journey as well as 3 people who have committed to support us with $25.00 a month. We are excited as we continue walk the journey God has us on.

We ask that you continue to pray for us as we wait on God's timing. Please join us in praying for the people in Dindiza. Pray that their hearts will be open to hear the Word of God. Pray for the team as we continue to raise the needed funds to get there. Also, pray for our team as we prepare spiritually for this trip. We have 15 people that will be going on this trip and we are excited to see what the Lord has planned for the people in Dindiza as well as our life.
