Goodbye February…thanks for the memories

With multiple weather events in DC last month, and seemingly endless cold, ice, and snow, it might be more appropriate to say, “good riddance, February!” But for our family, February will always mark special milestones in our missions journey.

Having explored opportunities for international, cross-cultural ministry for several years, in February 2012 we took a family retreat to Lake Anna and prayerfully considered areas in the world that the Lord may be calling us to and agencies that we might serve with.

On another family retreat in 2013, we further narrowed that search to serving in Latin America and finalizing plans for our vision trip that summer.

Just one year ago, in 2014, we announced our plans to go to Costa Rica and I preached a sermon as part of Ambassador’s missions month explaining our calling to missions in general and to Costa Rica specifically.

February this year saw many important milestones including announcing our commissioning service (March 29) and finalizing my last day at NCAI. We are less than 10 percent away from meeting our monthly goal and we are prayerfully taking steps to leave on April 15.

We are so deeply thankful for the support of Ambassador and the many prayer and financial partners that God has raised up through this journey. If you want to partner with us in prayer or financially, we would love to have you join us in that way.

Our commissioning service at Ambassador will be at 4pm on March 29.

We value your prayers and hope many of you can make the commissioning service on March 29!
