Well, this photo (courtesy of KristeNicolePhotography… love her!) just about sums it up: a whirlwind. Things are rapidly accelerating to a hectic pace. We are both up to our ears in homework and studies. I can’t even remember which pile of laundry is clean and which is dirty and don’t ask me where I put those shot records. We’re going to put the house on the market in May (Just let that one sink in for a minute as you look at the above picture. HA!!) We have to decide where we’re going to live for the remaining 6 months of the year. In the meantime, we’re trying to take deep breaths and enjoy our year of “lasts.” PLEASE PRAY!
- We urgently need clarity about decisions regarding our very near future.
- Peace beyond all comprehension needs to reign in our hearts and in this house, despite the late nights and hard work. We are tired. We are wondering how everything that needs to happen is going to happen, but we know He is able.
- Please continue to pray for our family’s health and attitudes.
- We are asking the Lord to multiply our time and rest for the sake of our precious children.
- Pray that God would continue to grow our prayer and financial partnership team according to His divine will.
We also wanted to pause and give God glory for this: We are currently at 95% of our monthly financial partnership! Say WHAT?! We asked God to make this happen so that only He would get the glory. And He’s done it! He has spoken clearly to hearts and His servants have obeyed. So thank you to everyone who is sacrificially giving to this ministry He’s called us to. God has crafted this team for victory and we will go the distance together. He is faithful to fulfill His promises and we absolutely love watching Him piece it together before our very eyes.
To our partners: you are all loved! We pray for a handful of you each day, and we love watching our children become familiar with your faces and families. Please let us know as prayer needs arise for you and your loved ones.
Are you feeling led to join our team? He will bless and multiply your obedience as your investments of time in prayer and/or money reach the hearts of people we’ve yet to meet on the other side of the world.
We’ll leave you with some of our kids’ memory verses from the last few weeks:
The sower sows the Word. -Mark 4:14
And Jesus came and said to them, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age.” – Matthew 28:18-20
And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come. – Matthew 24:14
Aaron, Rebekah, Evie, Abel, Judah, Zeke and Silas Wade
