Wow, where do I start? The last few months have seen over 6 thousand miles driven across 5 different states, 4 domestic flights, 3 Ministry Network/ District councils, 2 time zones, and 1 cancelled flight/ missed service in Michigan. We have been on the go sharing about missions and our call to join what Jesus plans on doing in the Chota Valley. Everywhere we have been, God has been faithful in calling additional workers, encouraging the body of Christ to walk in their gifts, and providing additional partners to come along side us as we prepare to go to Ecuador. We are thankful for every opportunity We are officially back in MO after the most recent trip to North Carolina and are preparing for a little over 3 weeks of Missionary Training.
As Summer is about to start, we will, along with appointed missionaries and missionary associates start Missionary Training and renewal in Springfield. Training will be 2 weeks for newly appointed missionaries and associates and then the associates will leave but we will join with appointed missionaries home on furlough for our 3rd week, and then we will be commissioned (info will be posted at a later time). We are looking forward to this time of bonding with other missionaries who are preparing to go to the ends of the earth to preach the good news of Jesus as well as getting training and wisdom from veterans who have been doing this longer than us. This will also be a time for Serenity to build friendships with other kids who will have similar experiences in life that she will have.
We continue to thank The Lord for your partnership with and prayers for us as Summer rolls in. We are thankful to be stationary for a while but there are many more miles ahead of us. Let us know how we can pray for you.
