We had a meeting at MTW this morning to start our departure process. On a list of 33 we are 6 away from being complete and out the door! All that is left to do is to:
raise $550 a month or $26,400 in one time giftsand then we can get signed off from our team leader and home office coach, purchase tickets and be on our way!
I was talking with two great ladies in the home office today and they were expressing their joy for us. It was such a huge encouragement. I LOVE seeing God work and show His mighty grace and sovereignty and then watching others receive so much joy from witnessing it - YEAH GOD!!!
Our biggest on-our-knees prayer right now is that God will quickly bring in the rest of our support so that we can get to the field. My prayer has been that God would at least let us have 6 weeks to get settled before teams start the first of June (maybe I should have been praying for more weeks...hmmm). That would put us needing to have the rest of our funding in by April 1st in order to purchase plane tickets, drive to TX, pack and ship out by mid April. God is good and I know that if that is His date - we'll get there. Can't wait to see what he's going to do!
Thanks for your continued prayers
