Wanted to post a quick blog to let everyone know that we’re here!
Although it was a long travel day, flights were great, customs was a breeze and all of our bags and guitars arrived in one piece.
We’re currently staying at Pastor Steve family’s home while they are in the states for two months. Which has been a great central location to the church, meeting the elders and staff, getting our bank account set up, and going to our first gospel community (community group, bible study). The church has been very gracious and generous to us since we’ve arrived – filling our schedule, but also allowing us time to recover from jet lag.
We’ll do a longer more detailed post next week, but we do have a few things we’d love for you to pray about:
-It’s pretty overwhelming, moving into full-time ministry. We’ve been involved with ministry in part-time or volunteer capacities, but the weight of responsibility in a full-time role is intimidating. Please pray for courage, and boldness as we start this new adventure.
-We’re still sitting around $27,000 of our initial $30,000 goal – and the more we raise, the longer we’ll be able to stay. And we would love to be able to stay at least as long as our two-year visa will allow. Please pray that God will provide the necessary resources for however long He’d like us to be here.
-Although a year seems like a long time, we know that it will go by in the blink of an eye. Please pray that God would show us how to maximize our time, being intentional in relationships, and finding our feet in the city and within our roles.
We are grateful for you all! You have enabled us to live out what God has called us to for this time in our lives. Thank you! Here are a few pictures of the last couple days. We’ll be posting more pictures, and details later on, so stay tuned!
