This past month we have been given opportunities to share with 3 churches (! We have been asking the Lord to localize the majority of our support (to make furlough travels easier and spend more time with people and less in the car) and have been blown away at the amazing ways He has moved in people to be our partners right from our home town of Walla Walla!
One of these new partners is a neighbor and pastor from just a mile down the road who was burdened by the Lord to pray for my (Emily’s) family almost 10 years ago! We finally met last week and have just been so encouraged that the Lord has truly been going before us–even before we were on this path–preparing each of us to be a part of this ministry He is raising up to reach the unreached people in Mexico! Our God is so faithful and so wise!!
This next month we have another opportunity to share coming up, possibly others as well.
We are at 55% of our needed monthly support!! We are asking the Lord to raise up 100% of our support by January 2020 and that we would be able to move down to Mexico and engage in the next phase of this ministry this winter!
Aside from that, Caleb has been busy on the farm, faithfully changing pipes morning and night till the fields are all watered and ready for winter as well as working through his online classes each day. I view my main role as one of a supporter–to do whatever I have to do to keep Caleb going! I have also been learning so much about raising up the little disciples in our home–raising our children. I am NOT a multi-tasker so getting things done around the house takes a little more time than I wish it would…I’m sure some of you can relate 😉
We cherish your prayers!
We cherish your hearts!
We cherish your friendship!
Thank you for ALL you are giving, gifting and sacrificing for the Lord and for one another–your roles in not only our lives but also the lives of your friends, families and circles of influence! We pray for each of you, for strength and encouragement and wisdom specific to your needs, as the Lord knows so well.
We would love your continued prayers for:
- The Lord’s specific guidance in which churches and/or individuals or groups to reach out to next
- Wisdom in parenting
- Wisdom in structuring our time each day, especially as Caleb is juggling so many responsibilities
We truly would LOVE to pray more specifically for YOU! Shoot us an email so we can help and be with you in your journey as well!
With Christ’s love and very grateful hearts,
Caleb, Emily, Deslianne and Cohen
