Serving the Lord, with you!
The Lord Goes Before You - Deuteronomy 31:8
Over the last seven months our family has experienced a roller coaster of emotions.  We waver between trusting the Lord to provide and wavering in our faith and beginning to doubt.  Time and time again we have seen that our faith should remain strong, because we serve the King of Kings!  The Lord has blessed us over and over again throughout our lives and we rest in knowing he will continue to hold us in His will.

As most of you have heard, the Lord has provided a place for us to live while we are in Hungary.  It is a blessing to know where we are going before we arrive and we praise God for his provision.  Thank you to those of you that have been praying for our housing.  Please continue to pray for our family as we transition to living in a foreign country and don't have the familiar friends and family close by.

Ministry Update

            Our commissioning service was last Sunday.  It was an overwhelming blessing to be supported by so many loving and kind friends.  Our church home, Calvary Baptist Church, in Kalkaska hosted a carry in dinner and service.  We were able to reconnect with many friends and supporters and we left feeling extremely blessed to be surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses.  I know many of you wanted to be there, but couldn't make the trip.  
            We want to thank all of you that have been a support in prayer and finance over the course of the last seven months.  Dave Southwell spoke about how our supporters and church are holding the rope as we scale the rock climbing wall of mission field ministry.  We are asking that you all continue to hold our support rope of prayer and finance as we embark next month.  Pastor Dan Willis also spoke, encouraging our family that we serve "God of the impossible."  These two challenges were a wonderful reminder of how the Lord has made us dependent on each other and how you, our supporters, are just as important to our ministry as we are.  

        We have had lots of opportunities to connect with friends and family over the last month, but we want to invite you to say farewell at the airport if you can make it.  Our flight will leave from Traverse City on July 7th at 4:45.  We plan to arrive around 3:00 and check into our gate around 3:30.  It would be great to see you one last time and say goodbye.
Financial Update
The Lord blesses through His people!  It is amazing to see the blessing that He has poured out on our family in these past few months.  It is also wonderful to go to the field knowing that so many of His people are supporting what He has led us to do.  If you would like to help fill the remaining piece of our pie please click on the link below and sign up to support our ministry in Hungary.
