Moving Forward

January was another amazing month as we saw God at work all around us!  We started the month on New Years Day at Seneca Community Church very near to our home in MI.  Next we were at Dale Bible Church in Southern IN for a couple of days.  We finished the month with 2 weeks in Detroit, MI at a conference with Beacon Baptist Church, and a weekend at Gilead Baptist Church.  We are grateful for all of these churches who have invited us to come and preach or present our ministry. 

Since our last newsletter, we have gained many new church and individual ministry partners, which has put us further along than we ever imagined we would be at this point.  Praise God for His work!  As thing point, we are lacking only around $650 per month to meet our goal and be able to go!  If you would like to join our team or give a one-time gift, please click here.  We are beginning the process of obtaining passports for the kids and all of our visas and are hoping, Lord willing, to be leaving for Bolivia by early July. 

In the midst of the craziness, we are so grateful for each and every person who has prayed for us, encouraged us, given financially to our ministry, spent time with us, or helped connect us with friends, family or their churches.  Our ministry would not be possible without each and every one of you.  Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

Lord Help Us!

While we were at Beacon Baptist this month, we had quite a funny thing happen to us.  At least it's funny now. We were on stage Wednesday night singing, which we've done at nearly every place we've visited on this journey.  Midway through the song, as I was playing my guitar and singing, I heard a commotion to my left and looked over to see our boys Caden (10) and Gavin (8) in a little bit of a tussle.  I did what I could to get them to stop, but to no avail.  Finally, I was able to signal Andi, who was standing on my other side, so that she could go break it up.  Apparently one of them had come in at the wrong place in the song and the other gently "corrected" him, speaking right in the microphone.  By the time Andi got there, there had been some shoving back and forth and one of them had grabbed the other by the tie.  We were mortified in the moment, but thankfully were able to laugh about it afterward.  And the people at Beacon were very gracious about it.  It seems that kids are kids no matter where you go, and many were grateful to see ours be "real," even if it was on stage.  It was a good learning moment for all of us.  Lord, please let that never happen again!

Even during the frustration of the moment, God gently reminded us of something more important.  This journey that we are on is not about us, it is all for God's glory.  It can be easy to obsess about having a perfectly polished presentation, (not at all saying that it's bad to do things well) but in striving for perfection we can lose sight of who is actually doing the work.  God can easily  take our failures and mess-ups and redeem them for his glory.  We've found often over the past months that the presentations we felt the worst about are often the very same ones that seem to have the greatest impact.  You see, it's all about God, not us.

I am reminded of I Corinthians 3:6 where Paul says, "I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase."  You see, Paul and Apollos put in the time and did the work that God called them to.  Yet, even after their efforts, nothing happened until God did his part.  All of our meager attempts for God, whether it's raising support, or sharing Christ with our neighbor, are nothing until God gets involved.  And without God's involvement, there is no way we can do anything so perfectly that it accomplishes spiritual fruit without Him.  I am grateful for God humbling me and teaching me not to stress about doing the work that only He can do.  

 

February 2017
Praises

We have had amazing conversations with people considering missions at almost every church we've visited.

God is continuing to build our support and prayer teams, as well as meet our current needs in ways we never imagined.


Prayer Requests

For those who are considering missions, that God would have open reign in their lives and that He would send more laborers into the harvest.

For safety as we have some longer trips upcoming in February and March.

 
That we could effectively communicate our vision for Bolivia

For God to continue to stir hearts and raise prayer and financial supporters

 
Kids Corner
Q: How long do you think it will take you to learn Spanish?

Jaelin (12): I don't know.  I'm not sure.  It's not MY timing.

Caden (10): I don't know.  2 years.  A long time. 

Gavin (8): (Sigh) I have no idea.  Um, I think maybe 2 years into us being there.  Maybe a little less.
