Where We've Been, Where We Are, and Where We're Going?
God has been good. It truly is as simple as that. He has opened doors that we never dreamed we would be able to walk through and has provided in ways we could have never imagined. Over the past few months, God has led us in numerous directions, and we are excited to share with you all we have done!
August: Our Northeastern Experience
Traveling is a big part of evangelism and in August, we had the privilege of traveling with the Birkholz family, missionaries to Honduras. We spent the majority of our trip in the Northeastern states of Connecticut, New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and Maine. God was incredibly good to us as we were able to meet pastors from all over and had the opportunity to preach in four different churches.
September: A Total Transition
God began working in our hearts as we traveled in the Northeast. The more churches we found ourselves in, the more burdened we became for the churches of the Northwest. When we finished our travels, God clearly directed us back to Montana and to our home church for a time.
October - December: Welcome Home
After arriving back in Montana, we found ourselves getting plugged back into our home church. God has allowed us to be a part of numerous special days and special outreaches, as well as help plan the calendar for the New Year. It has been a tremendous blessing to get back involved with our home church and strive to be an encouragement to our church family.
Looking Into the New Year
We are excited for all that 2015 has in store! We are excited to begin to make our launch out into evangelism in the Northwest. Our passion is to be a help and encouragement to the churches in a neglected area of the United States. God has left an open door that we are excited to walk through.
Along with our exciting step into traveling, we are ecstatic to announce that our family will be growing in 2015! God has blessed us with a precious baby that is expected to arrive sometime in May. We are so thankful to the Lord for this precious gift that God has given to us.
How You Can Pray For Us
Your prayers are greatly coveted as we take this next step of faith in launching out into evangelism in the Northwest. Pray that God will provide opportunities to be a help and encouragement to churches. We sincerely believe that God has been preparing this area of the country for a great revival that He is going to send. Pray that 2015 is the year that He pours out His Spirit and we see a great revival spread across our nation.
Finally, pray for our growing family. Our baby is growing daily and we ask for your prayers for the health of our baby as well as for Tressa. We also ask that you pray for Tressa and I as we prepare to be parents for the first time. We cannot wait for this wonderful addition to our family and all the adventures that this next step of our life holds. Thank you again for joining in our ministry through your prayers and support. We cannot wait to see how God works in this new year.
