FAMILY UPDATE: February was a fun month for the boys as April and the boys stayed a week in PA with April’s mom while her dad was gone a few states away with a pastor training event. They celebrated Valentine’s day with their mamaw & had a lot of fun. Thank you for praying for our homeschool year during this raising support stage. It has been the best year yet and the boys are doing phenomenal in their studies. We can feel the prayers. Most of the family just got over some sickness but that’s expected for this time of year and today brings us hope for Spring soon! The sickness put us a bit behind in getting our house on the market so our goal is to have it on the market in the next 2 weeks.
We had the privilege of speaking at Hope on a Hill Church and we are excited to have them as a new church partnership on our team. They were so welcoming to our family and have such a blessing and encourage to our family. We also spoke at two small groups in February, one local and one in Akron. We are busy prepping our house to sell as well and continuing our lessons in Creole.
LOOKING AHEAD: We are speaking at a local church, The Way, on March 3rd and a local small group from our church Sunday evening the 3rd. We are speaking at another local church, Shelby Alliance Church, on Sunday March 24th, where not only will we be speaking about Haiti but Jim will be preaching a short message afterwards as well. You can be praying for him as this will be his first time preaching in front of a larger group of people.
WHERE ARE WE AT? Oh we’re so glad you asked! 😉 We are excited to share that we are at 54% in monthly support. Oh the way He did it too! Ask us in person and we’d love to share! We praise God for being over half way now and having 2 church partnerships and 61 families who are a part of our monthly support team! Due to the need for our family being down there as soon as we can get there, our goal is to be finished with funding our support by the end of Spring so we can move down by the end of the Summer.
So please be in prayer that God would lead us to those He wants to use to be on our monthly support team, whether it’s a church, group or individual family and for more connections and speaking events! We are so grateful for the referrals we are starting to get from people, that have opened doors for us to speak at other small groups & churches.
WE NEED YOU! We appreciate so much when we hear from so many of you, that you are praying for our family. You have no idea how much that means to us. If you’ve been wanting to join our team and haven’t had a chance yet, we would love to encourage you to do so as soon as possible. We would be grateful if you took a minute this week to see if your family could become a part of our monthly support team! YOU get to be a part of what Christ is doing in Haiti, making an impact for His kingdom. If you would like to be a part of the remaining 46% we need in monthly support that we need to raise in the next 1-2 months, click HERE!
We could not do this without you, THANK YOU SO MUCH! Your support, encouragement, reading our updates and asking us how the journey is going means the world to us. We have an amazing tribe ❤ We love you all!
