The promises of God ring true throughout the scriptures. Psalm 81:10 says, “I am the LORD thy God, which brought thee out of the land of Egypt: open thy mouth wide, and I will fill it.” When I think of how the Lord has called us, saved us, and allowed us to live a victorious and abundant Christian life, it excites me to think of His plans for China. It motivates me to continue on in His faithfulness, opening my mouth wide knowing that He alone can and will fill it!
April was another busy month with many blessings. Here is an update of what has been happening and areas to remember in prayer:
Departure: Our departure date is official and the plane tickets have been bought! We are leaving, Lord willing, for the field on August 10th of this year, less than one hundred days away! By faith, we are praying all of our goals will be reached by then.
Support: We are continuing to see God’s hand of blessing on our lives as we travel on the deputation trail. We have seen 4 new churches partner with us over the past month which has moved our support level to 77%. We only need approximately 17 more churches to partner with us. If you haven’t already, would you consider what the Lord would have you do to join our support team?
Setup Fund: God’s people have given generously, and we almost have all the money needed for our setup fund. We were given a couple of gifts this month to go towards our refrigerator and plane tickets! We only have a few items left that we are in need of raising funds for. The items still needed are:
- Rent for a Year: $6,000 – Our rent for the entire year has to be paid up front.
- Shipping Expenses & Customs: $2,000
- Stove: $1,100
- Vehicle: $3,000 Still needed.
Baby Update: My wife is scheduled to be induced and give labor to the baby on the 26th of this month (as long as the baby does not pass before then.) Please continue to pray for my wife and family during this time. The Lord has truly given us grace and peace in this matter, and we know that He will continue to do so.
Thank you for being a part of our team, Project China, with your prayer and financial support!
