Lord willing, we are leaving for Chile June 09, 2015!
We are beyond excited to share this news with you. We have come to this point because of your prayers and support. However, we are not there yet. We still have much to do between now and June.
Erica and I had a productive time speaking to our Pastor and his wife to finalize our plans. I felt like they were as excited as we are to finally have a departure date.
We came out of the meeting knowing we still need to raise a little more monthly support, apply for our visas, and finish raising/saving for our set up fund, and we are fully trusting in the Lord to meet these needs.
The greatest of these needs to be met between now and June will be our set up fund. We are saving and setting aside monthly support for this ourselves each month, and placing our faith in the Lord to move on the hearts of those he would have help meet this need.
