November ’16 Partner Letter
Louisiana Bound Again!
We had an awesome trip this month to Lafayette, LA. During our two-day trip, we installed drywall and interior doors, as well as taping and mudding drywall. We met some great homeowners and had an incredible time ministering the love of Christ to them.
We are planning a December trip to Lafayette, LA to help in the rebuild effort and are opening the trip up to our partners. The trip will be December 12-18. If you cannot do the entire week, that’s OK, just let us know what days work for you. Housing will be provided, but you will be responsible for your own food and transportation.
Once again we will be working with Love Acadiana, an outreach branch of Our Savior’s Church. If you are interested in this trip, please let us know by filling out our volunteer form by clicking this link. Type “Louisiana Trip” in the space provided at the bottom and we will be in contact with you shortly.
A few weeks back we were approached with an opportunity to fill in at the pulpit at one of our partner churches. After prayer and conversation we accepted the opportunity and two weeks ago began to preach at the Weds. night service. We have since preached two Sundays and will be preaching again tonight.
This has been a great opportunity for a couple reasons. We have had the opportunity to share our heart and lives with people we know and love. We have also had the opportunity to watch God move through us as we walk out His plan for our lives. Most importantly, we have had the opportunity to help friends and mentors as they take time to seek the heart of God for their church and in their own lives.
We’re not sure what the coming weeks have for them and us, but we have made ourselves available through the end of February to help in any way we can. Please be praying for our friends, their church, and us as walk out this season.
We are in need of a fifth-wheel camper with a toy-hauler to meet our unique travel needs for our new family. With this camper we will be able to travel as a family and fulfill all God has for us to do.
We are always looking for new monthly financial partners to help us fulfill the call of our ministry. We never charge anyone for anything we do. Instead we rely on committed loyal monthly partners like you to help us spread the hope of the Gospel and the love of Christ to the world.
