God is good!

We challenged ourselves to film a series of live videos on Facebook during the last few days of 2016, and it was a wonderful time to think back over all the things God has taught us and provided for us throughout the year. God’s faithfulness has been proved to us over and over. We’ve experienced peace in the face of uncertainty. God has provided for our needs and even many “extra” gifts, too! We continue to learn to trust in Him and act in faith, moving forward with activities and plans that will get us closer to Colombia. We continually remind ourselves, “do not be anxious…but seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things [that you worry about] will be added to you.” (Matthew 6:31a, 33)

Blessings of the season

  • Anna participated as a vocalist and keyboardist in the 2nd annual Advent Worship Night at Faith Baptist in November
  • We sold one vehicle, but almost immediately were supplied with access to a second vehicle to borrow as needed.
  • As our personal savings ran out, a generous ministry partner has begun to give financial aid to cover our mortgage on our (still un-sold) house.
  • We have several new monthly ministry partners starting to give in January – praise God!

Upcoming

We are taking Equipping for Cross-Cultural Life & Ministry at the Center for Intercultural Training (CIT) in Union Mills, NC from January 22 to February 17. All four of us will be attending classes to prepare ourselves for life and ministry in Colombia.

Status Update

Our house has been on the market for about 10 months now. We praise God for the resources He provides to pay our mortgage. We continue to pray for the house to sell.

It is already time to consider school placement for next year. We want to make a wise decision as we consider what grade and school would be the best fit for our girls.
