March 2020 Prayer Letter
Posted On March 19, 2020
Dear Pastors and Praying Friends,
As you recall, we have been praying, planning, and preparing for a May 11, 2020, departure date. However, due to the recent coronavirus and related travel complications, it has become clear that we won’t be able to leave for the field until June at the earliest. While we want to get back to China quickly, we are trusting the Lord who has all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to His purpose. At present we are watching the situation, completing the paperwork we can at this time, and scheduling meetings for May and June. Would you please join us in praying that these travel complications would clear up quickly so that we could leave for the field in June?
Thank you to those who have given to our Setup Fund. If you haven’t already, would you pray about giving a one-time love offering of any amount to help us reach these needs? We appreciate your help with this need.
Setup Fund – Below is a list of a few of our moving expenses for us to leave for the field and get settled in:
Airfare, Luggage, and Visas:
Rent for a Year:
Housing, Furniture, and Appliances: $10,000
Would you consider a one-time love offering of any amount ($100, $250, $500, $1000, $5000 etc.) to reach these needs?
Over the course of the last week as we learned how the coronavirus will push back our departure, the Lord has brought Paul’s words the the church at Philippi to mind. He encouraged them that the things which happened unto him had fallen out rather unto the furtherance of the gospel. Paul could rejoice knowing his imprisonment furthered the name of Christ! It is our prayer that our delayed departure would somehow do the same. We desire for the Lord to be magnified in our lives. Please pray that we would use these extra weeks here in the States to bring much glory to Him!
