Brought to you by, Supporters like you

With our return to the States, I have had a lot of time to process this last year.  Man, God is good!  I have come to understand the joy, the struggle, the challenge, the fulfillment of completely surrendering my life, my family’s livelihood, and my fears, hopes and dreams to God.

I want to thank everyone that has supported us over this past year.  Without you, we wouldn’t be where we are today.  By praying, giving financial support, and being hospitable and opening your homes to us, you have helped provide for our family.  I think that often we forget that everyday we live our lives for Christ.  By living our lives for Christ every day, we become the instruments of his provision.  From the simple smile to a complete stranger, helping friends move, supporting a charity, serving the homeless, supporting missionaries around the World, you are actively engaging the communal mission of being a follower of Christ.  Thank you!

We will be in the states till December of this year.  We plan to raise support for a 2-year commitment with Mission Corps, serving the Sweet Surrender Coffee Shop ministry in Krakow, Poland.  This is going to be a big step of faith, since we wont be working or receiving an income during this time.  Please pray for us during this time that support will arrive when we need it.
