As spring is gently making its way into view, we are excited as to what this season might hold. As our prayer card supply is running out, we are thankful that we have given over 1,000 of our prayer cards to individuals. So many have responded to our prayer letters through notes, and we are thankful for each one who dedicates their time to God in prayer for us.
By the time you read this, we should have our children’s passports in our possession. These are a prerequisite to obtaining a residency permit for our family in Finland. The Lord has been working behind the scenes and I look forward to sharing what He is currently doing in the days ahead. Finland has just ended their third lockdown, but we believe God has already provided a way for us to obtain entry without too much difficulty. We also have a plan in place that will ensure longevity as to our staying in Finland.
It was nice to have all of our February meetings in Virginia. (Andrew got used to driving short hours and then being done with travel.) Our next few months will have meetings a little more spread out with 6-8 hours of driving time between meetings. April will have us visiting churches in the Upper Midwest and in May we will be in the Lower Midwest and Northeast.
The Lord has given us a burden to reach the lost in Finland and provided for us an open door into the country. All we are waiting for now is for the remaining 42% support from churches to push us through the door.
- Praise: 8 new supporting churches since the last letter. We are receiving 58% with an additional 11% possible.
- Prayer: Safe travels to meetings and no mechanical issues
- Prayer: Fill July (3 slots left) and August 2021 meeting schedule
- Prayer: Clark’s and Jake’s salvation
- Prayer: To be on the field by the end of summer
