Answered Prayers and a Few Requests

15 05 2012


First of all, we are thankful for safe travels.  It always amazes me that we can climb into a machine that weighs over 200K lbs, fling it into the air at 500 MPH and land safely, when and where we want to.  Luggage made it too!

Prior to the trip, I asked for you to pray for a few things on this trip.  First was that we would make progress with our partner church, the Oahu Baptist Network, and the North American Mission Board.  I am happy to report that things are looking very well on all those fronts!  We had great visits with those folks and we are all on the same page getting things nailed down.  This really helps us with funding, but also with fellowship on the island.

Speaking of funding, we are very, very close to our minimum budget.  That means that we are now moving ahead with plans for the move.  We are booking the one-way plane tickets, we are selling our stuff, and getting shipping arranged.  That is a step of faith as we are trusting the Lord to provide the rest of what is needed, but we are confident that He will!

We also asked that you pray for Caleb because of his fears about moving.  Your prayers were answered.  On this trip, Caleb really fell in love with the island of Oahu, began to get excited about what is ahead, and even learned that he can make new friends!  This is such a relief for us and only God could have worked this.  He is good!

Please keep us in your prayers.  There is so much now that must happen.  We need to get rid of a whole lot of stuff.  We need these things to sell for enough money to get what we need on the other side.  Also, we need to continue finding partners to close the gap in our budget.  We are moving to Oahu during the first week of July.  That is coming fast!
