It is hard to believe that 2019 is nearly over and 2020 will soon beginning. It seems as if we have been on the deputation trail forever, but it has only been a few months (we are counting our official start date as Sept 1, 2019). November brought us back to Minnesota for a few days to get some DMV items settled, doctor appointments, and to enjoy a few inches of fresh snow.
Recently, while at a restaurant, Jake was so inclined as to want to try a Jalapeño pepper. While we were not able to get the first taste on camera, the refusal to re-taste was captured. (Pictures best viewed on website.)
We have a few meetings left this year and then will spend the Christmas season in Florida with Andrew’s sister. We will also celebrate three birthdays this prayer letter – Clark (Dec 15; turning 5), Nicole (Dec 27), and Jake (Jan 27; turning 4). Meg already had her birthday (Nov 7; turned 6) and has already begun losing her teeth. Our first 2020 meeting will be on January 5th. From January until May 2020, there will be only 6 gaps in our calendar where we do not have a scheduled meeting (several being holiday weekends).
We have been able to see 2 salvations so far this year and help in outreach for a new church plant in Portsmouth, VA. We are also at 10% support coming in. This is keeping us on track to be on the field by June 2021, but will gladly go sooner when full support is reached.
- Prayer: Safe travels to meetings (and no more mechanical issues or popped tires)
- Prayer: Clark’s and Jake’s salvation
- Prayer: To be on the field by June 2021
