First and foremost we would like to thank those who are supporting us both financially and through prayer. We recently hit our first milestone of having 10% of our support received; plus another 4% that we are waiting to arrive. We also have several people praying about supporting us, so please pray for God to work in the hearts of those that have been, and will be, called to partner with us in this journey.
This past month, at our church’s men’s breakfast, I was moved by a devotional in Luke 5. It was when Jesus was calling Peter out to be one of his disciples. Peter had been fishing for a while with no success and Jesus told th
em to cast his nets out further in the deep. Peter did as Jesus said and had such a big catch that he had to have others help him bring it in. God spoke to me in this, that we need the help of other people as we go into missions. Karen and I started courting after coming together in a “Serving as Senders” class that focuses on having a sending team for missionaries. We had not organized our own sending team because we were not going overseas. However, God was telling me we need a sending team.
After much prayer about this, we are asking if any of you would be interested in being a part of our team. We are looking for about 5 or 6 people that will come alongside us for accountability in raising support, spiritual and emotional encouragement, prayer support, and general assistance. We would get together as a group once or twice a month and possibly more often individually. If you are interested in getting involved in our sending team, please let us know as soon as possible.
