|I can’t believe that it is already creeping towards the end of November and soon we will be celebrating the holidays.
This month as we sit back to process everything God has shown us we are full of gratitude. It seems so distant and still like it was yesterday that we chose to say “yes” and follow wherever the Lord leads. It’s been difficult at times, but God has been so faithful to our family in each season. We are so amazed and full of wonder at how He took our once broken and hopeless family and has allowed us to be a part of His bigger plan. We have experienced healing and revelation of who we are in Christ in these last few months as we lean close to the Lord and hear his heart beat for us.
We are now in week nine of SOSM and can’t believe we only have a three more short weeks of lecture. Last week Joey and I prepared our pioneering plan for the next three years and God revealed more facets of his call for us to be a bridge between Central Asia and the States. Seeing God put everything together made what we are walking into even more real! We feel called to mobilize people by training, equipping, leading and sending outreach teams into Central Asia. Our heart is to see a movement of believers rise up through building relationship, acts of service and discipleship.
In January, we will be taking a few weeks to share more about our vision and plan. We are looking for people who would like to hear more about our work and be a part of our team. If you are interested in hosting our family to have one on one conversation, a gathering with your friends, or allow us to speak to your small group, please let us know. We really are depending on you, our faithful supporters and friends to help us expand and obey what God is asking us to do.
We pray that this season you will reflect on all that God is doing in your life and be filled with wonder of his unfailing love! HAPPY THANKSGIVING!
Lots of Love,
Joey, Laurel, Isaiah, Kyla, Makenna and Noah
