As the doxology reminds us, Praise God, from whom all blessings flow! We claimed January as our faith goal to reach 100% of our Wycliffe established monthly budget. God did it! Because of the Holy Spirit's prompting that led so many of you to partner through prayer and finances, we have reached the minimum budget required to serve with Wycliffe Bible Translators! Praise the Lord!

This has been an incredible journey so far as we have watched the Lord move. When we started, we could barely see that it could even be possible. In his perfect timing, the Lord answered our collective prayers and provided all we need.

Give praise to the LORD, proclaim his name; make known among the nations what he has done. Sing to him, sing praise to him; tell of all his wonderful acts. Remember the wonders he has done, his miracles. (1 Chronicles 16:8-9, 12a)

Commissioning Service

On Sunday, January 27, 2019, Shalom Christian Reformed Church in Sioux Falls, South Dakota commissioned us for our ministry in God's Kingdom. It was so incredibly humbling to have friends, family and the Shalom congregation there to support and send us into our ministry. Their personal affirmation was a blessing and for which we are so grateful.

“In the church at Antioch there were prophets and teachers: Barnabas, Simeon called Niger, Lucius of Cyrene, Manaen (who had been brought up with Herod the tetrarch) and Saul. While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them. So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.” Acts 13:1-3.
