August 2015 Update

Hello friends!

Thank you for your continued interest and prayer for our family as we are seeking to serve full-time as missionaries to Indonesia at the Well of Joy Community Center.  We have spent the month of July continuing to reach out to families and churches in order to share this work. We trust God has a team of people in mind that will support us both through prayer and finances, and we are waiting on Him to put the whole team in place.
Since the last update we have presented the ministry at one church where we were very encouraged. We saw two families take us on for regular monthly support and several others have joined our prayer team. During July we also presented this ministry to many different families and offered the opportunity for them to join this work. We are grateful to God for now having us at 53% of our monthly support need.
 
As we look to the future, we have a few plans in place. We are trusting God to provide as He desires, and we will hold our own plans loosely. We are attempting to be at 60% support by mid-September. This will allow us to go to our final week of orientation with our agency in October. For us, that would require approximately $450 more in monthly support by the end of summer. Perhaps God is even working in the hearts of some who have already heard about this ministry!
 
Thank you for your interest and your prayers. If you are interested in hearing more of our story, please contact us! If you are interested in joining the team as a financial partner, please use the links below. We have a remaining outgoing fund (one time giving) requirement of around $60,000. And our monthly need still requires many team members as well!

We have spent this summer enjoying all God has for us here as we anticipate NOT being in Michigan next summer. Playing, swimming, running, and being together with friends has been a blessing to enjoy.
