Helping shape lives that will change the future.

In our pursuit of 50-30-30 (50 new givers at $30 per month in 30 days, which ends on Thanksgiving), we have received nine new commitments–only 41 more to go! God is faithful, and we trust Him.

We have been very busy during home assignment. In October, Jennifer and I were part of a missions conference in California. A couple weeks later the boys had a couple days off school, so on their four day weekend we drove to Colorado to see friends. Estes Park received the first snow of the year while we were there and the boys went sledding for the first time in over two years.

Time is drawing near for us to head back to Africa so we are trying to spend more of our time with family and friends. This is why our deadline for reaching 50-30-30 is Thanksgiving, we know how busy our final month will be with visits and packing. Thank you so much for your prayers and encouragement!

Limbo. Definition–an intermediate, transitional, or midway state or place. The early church used it to tell of a region between the borders of heaven and hell where the righteous went after death as they waited for entrance into heaven.

Our family right now feels like we are in limbo. In just a few short weeks we are returning to life in Africa. Ministry and school at RVA. This brings great visions of things we enjoyed and look forward to. In just a few short weeks we are leaving life in the U.S. This life also brings great visions of family, friends, traditions, and so many other things we have enjoyed.

Oh that time would continue to move along so we can make that jump from one world to the next!

Time will continue to drag on if we do not reach our goal of 50-30-30. That is 50 new givers at $30 per month in 30 days (by Thanksgiving which is only 16 days from today!). Our airline tickets are to leave on December 27, but Africa Inland Mission won’t let us go until we reach our goal. Knowing this makes our time of limbo even harder.

Thank you to our wonderful team of supporters who pray and/or give on a regular basis! Would you be our ambassadors and share our ministry with your friends?

34 And calling the crowd to him with his disciples, he said to them, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For whoever would save his life[d] will lose it, but whoever loses his life for my sake and the gospel’s will save it.” –Mark 8:34-35 (ESV)
