Confirmations and Moves

Well, it’s official. We have purchased tickets to leave the U.S. on February 10th. Having confirmed tickets leaves us with a feeling of satisfaction and excitement, knowing that new adventures lie just around the corner. Many people have asked us if we are worried about taking a new baby overseas or if we’ve ever doubted the call since she was born. Our answer is a confident “No.” We trust the Lord with our lives and with our daughter’s life as well. Though we trust Him, He still has sent one confirmation after another.

Over the past week, we have received generous, unsolicited gifts from people we hardly know. We had an amazing time with our fellowship in Chicago that left us in awe of His goodness and incredible provision. There have been moments when we wondered how He would meet our needs for our outgoing budget and living expenses at home. Time and time again, He provided more than enough after pushing us to the point that we had to rely totally on Him. What a faithful, trustworthy God we serve. Please continue to remember us as we walk with Him on this exciting journey.
