Wow, what an adventure! On September 18 we embarked on our first journey to share our ministry vision with several churches. We had three churches in Florida and one in Michigan. Upon arriving in Spring Hill, Florida, we were welcomed by my grandparents who graciously took us in for a week and two days. While in Spring Hill, we shared with two churches what we are trusting the Lord to do in our lives. Those churches were Spring Hill Baptist Church and Grace Community Bible Church. What a blessing it was to be taken in by these fellow believers and shown hospitality. On Saturday September 28 we left for Sanford, Florida and arrived at New Tribes Missions USA home office to share at a church called Fellowship Baptist Church that is located a short drive from there. We had the opportunity to reconnect with an old friend from our Bible School days as well as meet a new body of believers that we had never met. What a privilege it was to feel the love that these people had for the Word of God! It was an awesome thing to see. We then left for Michigan on October 1 and arrived on the 2nd. While in Michigan we stayed in the mission guest house for a week and then moved into Dan and Casie Falls’ house. During our time at New Tribes Bible Institute we were able to spend a week with our family, who were visiting, and prepare for sharing our vision with the church we attended as students, Manchester Community Bible Church. It was a blessing to have the opportunity to share among our friends there in Manchester, Michigan. We arrived back home in Pennsylvania on October 13 at around 8:00 pm. The Lord allowed our car to run well despite the 3,000 + long miles we put on the engine and provided safety all along the way. In closing, I have to say, by far the best part of our pre-field ministry is seeing the Lord provide time and time again. What an awesome thing it is to see Him continuing to open the door for us to move to Paraguay. One of the biggest prayer requests we have currently is that we would be intentional about our relationships with people while we’re here. We don’t want to be Joe and Sue missionary who no one really knows. We want to know people and for people to know us. While still setting our eyes on the goal of moving to Paraguay between July and November of 2014, we want to remain obedient to the Lord and allow Him to work in the hearts of His children to join arms in what He is doing around the world.
