Big News Update!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! We have some exciting updates to share with you. Here we go...

We are at 98% support!
There was a great response to our "30 at 30" campaign with 28 new partners signing on. $60 more in monthly promises and we will be fully funded!

We have our tickets for Liberia!
Our plane will leave from Chicago on January 12, and we’ll arrive in Liberia the next day. We plan to spend a couple of weeks in Monrovia for orientation and to purchase a vehicle and supplies before moving to Voinjama.

Our Family is Growing!
We had a big surprise recently when we found out that we have another baby on the way. Sara is due at the end of June. After a lot of thought and prayer, we are planning to travel to the Ivory Coast for the delivery. A good family friend and missionary midwife has agreed to help with the delivery. In the event of an emergency the medical care is much better there than in Liberia.

Thank You
 When we began this journey together towards missions, we had a vision of reaching the Manya with the gospel. We stepped out in faith, believing that if this calling were from God, He would provide the resources needed. As we spent this last year sharing our hearts for Liberia, we have been overwhelmed by the response of God’s people. Hundreds have prayed for us and given sacrificially, in order that we might see this dream become a reality. Thank you again for your prayers and generosity. We truly could not do this without you. We look forward to writing our next newsletter from Liberia!

Please Pray:

The container with all our belongings still has not left the US. Please pray for the red tape to be cleared and a speedy transit to Liberia.

For special endurance for Sara as she takes care of Audrey while being pregnant.

That we might find a reliable vehicle in Liberia.
