Hello Friends! Merry Christmas and a Happy New year!
I hope this email finds you well. I am writing with plenty of news! First, I have just finished and “graduated” from the JAARS pre-field flight and maintenance orientation, and I moved back to Ohio. I realized as I was coming back that it has been a year now since I officially started raising support. I am surprised and overwhelmed by how quickly things have progressed. The Lord is good! During this past year I have raised most of the necessary funds, quit my job at Kent State University, moved to North Carolina, completed all of my pre-field flight and maintenance training at JAARS, and moved back to Ohio! It’s been a busy year! Secondly, I have finalized a date when I am beginning my trip to Africa: February 15th! Less than two months from now. Wow I can’t believe it is so close. There are many details to take care of between now and then, and I would appreciate much prayer! Also, I want to see as many of you as I can before I go!!! If you have some time and want to see me please feel free to contact me. 🙂
My support level continues to be very close to full support! Praise the Lord! I do still need to raise about $5000 dollars for my outgoing costs, and am still looking for about $200 a month to round out my monthly support and assure that I will be set once I am in Zambia. I know the Lord is going to take care of this, but if you have have some year end money that you would like to give that would be great! Click HERE to go to my website and you can simply print off the form and send it in with your donation! If you have signed up to do monthly support but haven’t started yet, now is the time! If you need more information on how to start automatic credit card donations just email me back and I will give you the details! Thank you so much!!
Prayer and Praise!
I know that many of you have been praying and I very much appreciate it! Praise the Lord I know he was with me during my time at JAARS and I learned a lot! It definitely felt like I was in the right place for the right amount of time to do some intense learning. Praise the Lord for safety for everyone involved in my training! Please pray for the details of shipping my tools to Arizona and then to Zambia to come together soon! Pray that I will have wisdom in packing and choosing what to take and what not to take. Pray for my heart to continue to be prepared for what God has for me. Pray for my time in the Cross Cultural course that I will learn what I need to! Thank you in advance for your prayers!
