God has called so many people to partner with us. We cannot help but be amazed by what He has already accomplished!
We are still planning to leave for Thailand in January, but we will need to purchase our plane tickets soon to begin the visa process. We are able to take that step as soon as we raise 90% of our monthly partnership. Only $150 of monthly support remains to get us to that point. That can be one person giving $150 a month, or 30 people giving $5... the diagram above is just a suggested breakdown.
If you feel like God is calling you to partner with us in this way, for any amount, please consider emailing us to let us know so that we can make plans accordingly.
If you are considering partnering with us financially but have questions you would like to ask, please feel free to reach out... we would be more than happy to meet up with you or to answer your questions via skype or email.
It is exciting to be getting so close to our goal and we are in faith to see God bring this to completion. Thank you for your prayers and for the financial sacrifices that so many of you are making to partner with us. We cannot do this without you and are so grateful!
Please pray with us that we would reach this goal. We hope that we will be able to share our departure date with you in our next email update!
Our move before the move...
As of yesterday, David has put in official paperwork to stop working for the Navy the week of Christmas, and when our lease is finished at the end of December, we will move down to Florida and spend the remainder of our time stateside living with Mandy's parents. We look forward to spending time with family and friends during this transitory time before we leave the states. Please pray for us and the children as we prepare to leave South Carolina and our church family here. We are feeling that loss and grieving the friendships we are leaving behind.
As we celebrate this holiday and all of the good gifts we have received, we can say with Paul, "I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ." - Phil. 1:3-6 We are so grateful to be on mission for the Gospel with each of you. Happy Thanksgiving! Much love, The Englands
