Support Update

Posted on


It’s hard to believe Christmas is less than a month away.  

Things are going fairly well here in México.  We are back to Language School in Level 3 and have one week left before we go on to Level 4.  It is going well!  We have the same teacher for this level as we did for Level 2.  We are very grateful because she is a very gifted teacher.  Level 4 is only a 2 week course – so they put a three week course into two weeks and then we have two weeks off at Christmas.  That will be a welcome break for sure!  

We wanted to let everyone know that our finacial support level has taken a significant drop this past month. As of November we are at 86%.  Please be praying that we will reach full support so we can continue in God’s calling for ministry here in México.

Thank you for partnering with us!  

Below are some pictures …

Well …

Only two more sleeps till we hit the road toward Mexico!! Follow our Travel Log on our website to keep up to date on where we are and be praying for us on our trip!

For those of you who may not know yet, we have received approval to drive all the way to Mexico.  The Missionaries we will be working with are going to meet us at the Texas border and we’ll drive down in convoy with them.  We are grateful!

Below are some pictures from our Commissioning Service, July 23 at Bethel Church here in Lion’s Head.

And now, the moment we’ve all been waiting for . . . 

We have reached 100% Support


Please be praying with us as we make plans to leave this summer.

Thank you very much to all those who have been part of this initial support raising phase of our calling to Mexico through prayer and financial giving.  While we have reached the milestone of 100% support, in many ways this is just the beginning of the journey.  We need your continued prayers and financial support for ministry in Mexico to be an ongoing reality.


Many Thanks!
