Big Goal/Big God

Drum roll please…Our BIG Goal is to be fully funded by June 15th so we can fly out in July after our final week of training.  We are currently at 52%.  Can you see what I mean by a BIG goal?!?!  Thankfully, we serve a BIG God who is more than capable of accomplishing BIG goals!  In fact, I think He likes it when our goals are God-sized because we have to rely on Him to accomplish them.  We trust fully in our BIG God to accomplish these things on our behalf, and whether He chooses to or not…He is still our BIG God.

Our Thermometer Hasn't Grown Much, But Our Hearts Have

The start of 2016 for our family has been about heart growth.  God has been walking us through a time of reminding us that He is in control…of everything…especially results.  How easily the doubt and fear crept in when God seemed to be a little silent in the process!  But He has shown us that even in the “silence”, He is working on our behalf.  We captured some of what we have been learning when I wrote about Fashioning My Golden Calf and Brittany charted out God’s Marketing Plan.

Arkansas/Texas Trip - "The March Tour"

We will be taking a trip March 20th thru 26th to Arkansas (Little Rock) and Texas (Dallas/Houston/Waco).  The main purpose of our trip is to continue to grow our support base.  If you are in one of these areas, we want to meet for coffee or a meal! Additionally, if you know anyone in one of these areas who has a heart for missions or might connect specifically to our story, we would love an introduction.  Email me at

Guest Award

The guest award for this newsletter goes out to a special family who shall remain nameless.  Running outside to throw up was an excellent idea, but unfortunately for this child the execution was just a little lacking!  Thankful for grace upon grace!  Note to future guests…minimize the time spent spinning on the swing before dinner!

Prayer Requests

  1. That God continues to “move in the hearts of people” and continues to open the doors for connection.
  2. Our upcoming, family interview with our potential school in Potsdam.  Praying for no marbles in our mouths and kids that use their manners.
  3. Safe travels for two up coming trips (Chicago and The March Tour).
  4. Our kid’s hearts and emotions as they continue to embrace transition.
