This last week was an eventful one for our family. Here is a quick recap of everything that’s been happening!
We have purchased our plane tickets for our vision trip! Now that this big step is out of the way, we are working to raise the rest of the funds ($1700) and preparing for travel!
World Witness recently held a board meeting, and on Tuesday October 1, we met with the board’s Personnel Committee. At this meeting we shared our testimony and a bit about ourselves. The board graciously confirmed us as pre-candidates.
On Saturday we attended a small missions conference at First ARP in Statesville. We had a great time of fellowship and enjoyed hearing from World Witness missionaries. It’s encouraging to see how God is moving among Wales and Germany. It isn’t flashy or fast. In many ways it isn’t much different than faithful work done here in the States. As one of the mission interns said in his presentation, God works in inches, not in miles. We’re grateful for the work of these faithful laborers in bringing the Gospel to Europe.
Western Avenue Baptist Church
This church has some important ties to our lives. In sixth grade, as a member of the Western Avenue youth group, Michael gave his life to Christ at a church camp. We were also married there in 2005. This weekend we met with a wonderful Sunday school group there and were able to share with them how we got to this point and what our vision is for ministry in Spain. It was a great encouragement to us.
God has been very good to us through this process, much better than we deserve. Amazing grace! We are thankful to Him and all of you.
