Family bio: Last year the four of us went overseas to work with a fantastic organization in a closed country. Their primary mission is to provide life-saving surgeries and a loving home to orphans. We immediately fell in love with the children and the staff at this ministry. After leaving, we realized we left our hearts there. We feel called to return, and, after much prayer and consideration, we have decided to return for a year. Each of us will have the opportunity to put to use the individual talents we have been given.
As you may expect, a trip like this has its challenges. We are asking you to join with us and pray as we journey down this path. Right now, Beth is in the process of obtaining a work Visa, which feels like it takes an act of congress to obtain. We plan to rent out our home while we are gone. Brooke will be homeschooled, so we need to find curriculum.
In addition, we need to raise $36,000 to cover living expenses for the year. This will cover things such as apartment rent, utilities, food, home expenses, drinking water, transportation to and from, medical insurance, and homeschool fees. Part of the budget will also go toward reaching out to the people in the local village around where we will live by meeting practical needs. Our goal is to have all of the funds raised (or monthly promises) before we leave in January so we can focus on our work there.
We are asking you to consider partnering with us by supporting us in prayer for the entire next 16 months and/or financially with a tax deductible gift. Any amount will help. You can give one time, or you can spread it out with a monthly gift.
We plan to update this page while overseas, so continue to visit this page to see what and how we are doing. If you would like to be a prayer partner, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We would like to commit to praying for you as you are praying for us.
Thank you and May God Bless you and your family.
