December 2019/January 2020 Update

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
