June-July Prayer Letter
Deputation News: It is with great eagerness we write our first prayer letter! We want to begin by thanking you for your interest in our ministry to the U.K. Many of you have encouraged us as we took our first steps of faith towards our ministry in England. These last few months have been busy as we have designed our website, contacted churches, planned our display table, and created a DVD of our ministry. Since our official deputation starting date, June 2, we have seen God provide and bless daily. We have presented our ministry in 16 churches and 2 mission conferences. Our schedule for the rest of 2013 is nearly booked and we are starting to book meetings for 2014!
Support: It is by His grace we have seen three churches take us on for support and one individual family. Currently we are at 8% of our financial goal – a great start to setting foot in England by summer 2015!
Adoption Update: God has given us a desire to adopt an infant domestically through Bethany Christian Services. The road to adoption can often be long and financially difficult yet time and time again God has given us the encouragement we have needed during our wait. We are excited to share with you that well over 75% of our adoption fees have been covered by grants. We know that God has a special plan in all of this and that one day (hopefully soon) we will be able to hold our little gift from God. Please join us in prayer that we would have an adoption placement before December 2013.
