Time Is Filled With Swift Transition
As the above lyrics to one of our songs indicate, our lives are always changing. Our bodies are changing, our relationships are changing, everything in our life is always in flux. Our families lives are beginning the major transition process. We have begun packing up our house to prepare for the move. We have three categories for all of our stuff: Ship it, Store it, Trash it. We are going to ship the essential goods that we will need over there. Things like clothing, books, shoes, furniture, etc. will all be shipped on a container which will leave in mid-April. It should arrive about mid-June -- just after we arrive. We are also looking for various donations of books and home-school material to ship over. As we begin this arduous process, I ask you to pray for us that we may be able to do all that needs to be done in the next month.
Bear Valley Staff meeting
Chad will be heading to Denver next week for the annual staff meeting. We will discuss many important topics for the extension school program. If you are not familiar with the extension school concept, give Chad a call and he'll be glad to discuss it with you!
Through the LORD's blessings, we have most of our one-time funds raised. We are working on airfare now which will be about $1,200/person (about $8,000 total). We will not purchase our plane tickets until we raise the minimum monthly support needed for our missionary work there. While we have some monthly support raised, we are in need of $2,500/month to meet our personal and work funds. Just about every Christian and congregation can afford an additional $25/month. We have several promises, but we need good Christians to step up to the plate. We are in need of your help to be able to fulfill the Great Commission in Chimala.
