Dear Supporters and Friends and Family,
This past month we have faced one of the busiest times of our itinerating ministry thus far. We had before us the daunting task of ridding ourselves of all of our “things” and freeing ourselves up for the coming transitions. Have you ever noticed that sometimes it is just hard to let go? We’ve always said we would have no problem walking away from our things. There is no item that we own (or owned) that has more value than the souls of the people of France that God has called us to. We walk away from it all with joy and yet a deep increased sense of urgency. Now that we are free from the fetters of our things, we are even more passionate about fulfilling that which God has called us to. We believe now more than ever before that this is the season He has appointed for us to go from being “called” to being “sent.”
We can’t do it without you though. If everyone on our mailing list began THIS month supporting us at $40 a month we would be ready to GO!!! Can you believe that? A lot of people walking in faithfulness at even a small amount, gets the job done. Will you pray about beginning your support this month? Most importantly, will you make a monthly commitment to continue that support?
We are finding that “being faithful in the small things” is a bit of a theme for us this past 5 weeks. We have been abundantly blessed through many congregations, lunches, meetings, worship moments, conversations and even in the task of cleaning out our house. It is these moments and memories with you in the Body of Christ that literally gives us the strength to keep going. A thousand “thank you” to those of you who helped us clean out our house, came and boxed up our things and gave our things a new loving home, gave our 2 cats a new home (!!!!), prayed over us, gave to us financially, gave us a BIG VAN (!!!!!), helped us finish up home renovations, spoke countless words of encouragement over us, listened to us as we gushed about France, shared your pulpits and airwaves with us, housed us and fed us. The list could literally go on and on. We are so humbled by it all and when we have feelings of doubt or feel alone in this task, we think on these things and give God all the thanks and praise for you all.
We are thrilled that our team leaders who will be overseeing the opening of the ministry coffee house and art gallery are now officially on the ground in Paris. We can’t wait to get to Paris to help in this enormous and powerful task.
So many of you have done so much for us and with us and now we are asking that you would go the second mile with us! Monthly donations can be set
