It’s October, my favorite time of year! This month marks a year and a half of raising support. A total of 9,020 miles of driving around the states and all over California, you’d think we’d be beat! But, God has been so good and blessed our family time together as we travel long hours to speak at churches.
We have been so encouraged with the support and encouragement we’ve received.
One hard thing we’ve been encountering is making so many friends along the way but not knowing when or if we’ll see them again! Nicole is now old enough that it is often sad for her to leave her new friends. But, we are encouraged going forward in the strength of their prayers and the hope of meeting up again some day.
We are happy to say that our support continues to go up. We are close to 40% financially supported. Josh has scheduled a handful of churches to speak at these next couple months and a few individuals have shown serious interest in partnering with us.
In order to reach our goal we will need to be at 60% in January to be able to leave in April. In order to reach this goal we will be needing just 28 more people to partner with us at an average of $50/month.
More than ever we have been so thankful for your prayers. This responsibility of raising support can be quite difficult and daunting at times. So, thank you to all of you who remember us and our needs.
If you are interested in being added to an e-mail group where we send specific personal prayer requests, please send us a quick e-mail.
Also, If you have been considering beginning to support us but have been waiting until the time of departure gets closer, now is the time to start. We need to show that we are getting enough support to survive in the country before they will submit our visa applications. The deadline for submitting the applications is January 1st! So even though we have enough to live on now, we really need the support to be able to leave, and whatever we get above the cost of living and traveling now, will be saved for initial departure and start-up costs. Please ask the Lord if He would have you join with us in bringing the Gospel to those who don’t have it!
So thankful for you, the backbone of our ministry,
Bethany, for the Weeks Family
