June/July 2019 update

April and May are now behind us and we have just begun to experience a 10 day streak without several inches of snow fall. Andrew has already begun letting the majority of his clients know that he will be ceasing work relationships in the coming days. It was amazing to see God provide sustained freelance work while assuming the Bi-Vocational Assistant Pastor role at Northstar Baptist Church. Only a few clients will be kept until we can transition into full-time deputation.

In June, we will be attending BIMI Candidate school year 1. We have already been approved BIMI missionaries since December 2018, but now we are attending the first of the two weeks of training. After this training week is over, we will return to Duluth, MN to help out in Northstar Baptist Church’s Vacation Bible Time. We will be canvassing our town for a week and then see how God will work in the lives of these children who attend. Last year we saw 120 children in attendance and 10 made a public profession for salvation.

In July, we will say goodbye to the friends we made in Duluth and head back to California to attend a wedding. While in California, we will have time to visit both of our families for a few days. We will then head back to the north for our first meeting on July 28th in Michigan.
