Back when my friends Brian and Mason were in college, I would send them little postcards to brighten their day. One time I sent them a cute little card that read:
"Don't be afraid to go out on a limb, that is where the fruit is."
Now we are heading into a new step of faith. We are going out on that limb. We are not going dangling upside down from the limb of tree, we are going walking on it like a tight rope. We are walking boldly.
Effective January 31st, Chris will no longer be working as the Children's Minister at our church. He is going to continue to work part-time as the after-school teacher. But is going to working on our Partnership Development full-time. God is calling us at this time to get ready to go on the mission field. Sure we don't have all the answers, but who does? We don't know where we live come May 31st. But we do know that we have ministry that we need to get to. God is telling us that we have to get to our Hospitality House. And boy are ready!
So our plans look like this:
January 31st - Chris' last day of work, and his ordination service that night.
May 15th - David's last day of school
May 31st- We have to be out of the missionary house we have been living in
June - We go to Wisconsin for Cadence's Missionary Conference!!
In between we plan to meet with people and hope to spend our summer traveling to raise support and awareness about Cadence International.
We are getting more and more supporters, and God is surely showing that we are doing the right thing, by constantly providing us with encouragement and financial blessing.
Please let us know how we can pray for you, or if you would like us to come to your town and share our hearts!
