We are presently working hard to fill up our schedule with churches for the fall and next spring. It is a very labor intensive process as we have to compile lists, make calls, send packets, then follow up. We are currently working to build our data base and send out an initial mailing to about 30 churches. Pray the Lord uses these 30 churches to be catalyst in jump starting our support. The hardest support that a missionary has to raise is the first 50%. We are currently at 15% so we have some real work ahead of us to get to the 50% mark. If you know of a church that might be interested in having us in, let us know, so that we can send them a packet and give them a call.
Our #1 prayer request through this process is not that we will raise lots of money, but rather that we might see people’s lives changed as a result of the Lord using us while we are at their church. The Lord used two missionary families in our lives to help us to surrender to missions. We are praying the Lord uses us to call other into the mission field as well as using us to create an awareness of the needs of the people in the Dominican.
