What a Day!!!

Well before I begin I have to back up a few days and fill you in. ALL praise and glory to God and Him alone!!!

At the beginning of last week we received our first 2 support response cards at the church. On Monday we had two more gifts given and both of these were towards housing. Praise God! He continues to provide and open doors for us.

This afternoon I received an email from Elaine, our financial secretary at the church, she wanted to let us know that she had received a one time anonymous gift for our mission. I was AMAZED!!! All praise and glory to GOD!

This evening I opened an ornament that was sent for our family. When I opened it I began to cry. God chose today for that ornament to arrive and it is the perfect ornament for our family.

We do have FAITH in Him and Him alone. He is the One who has called our family and He is the One who will provide for us to do His mission work in Africa.

Samaria Mission has a New Website!

Check out the new website for Samaria Mission.

They have also posted a video to highlight all that God has done in and through Samaria Mission in 2008. Click here to watch. (You need to pause the music at the bottom of our blog before you watch the video.)

Update on our journey ...
We are in the process of filling out the paper work for our Visas. Please pray for us as we continue to research and talk with the South African Consulate. There are LOTS of different forms and we need to make sure we have the correct forms filled out the first time. We are asking for God to guide us and make a way for the paper work to come together quickly.

We still have airline tickets on hold and we are praying through switching them to a different airline. We would fly through Germany and each ticket would be less than $1,000.00. We are hoping to purchase these tickets soon.

Thanks for keeping our family in your prayers.
