We make plans, God directs our steps ~ South Sudan Update

God continues to be faithful as we continue to take the next steps in preparing to move into fulltime international missions. He has opened our eyes in so many ways, educated us, connected us with amazing people & shown us what it means to WAIT on Him. It's exciting, scary, cool, weird & seriously out of the box in so many ways; but it is SO God! As we continue to prepare to move to South Sudan God has shown us the importance of preparing our family to live in another culture. We feel it is vital for our family to prepare spiritually & physically so that we will be successful. We want to thrive as a family so that God can use us in amazing ways.
Because of the increasing unrest in South Sudan our original plan to leave in July has been postponed. God has NOT changed our hearts but has redirected our steps & we can see His hand all over it. Our heart is still to keep taking the next steps towards moving full-time to South Sudan, but after much prayer we believe that investing in training will lay the foundation for everything God has planned for our family. We have researched different missions trainings to find the training that will suit our entire family, where every person from 6 to 43 will get extensive disciple training along with community outreach. On September 25th our family will move to Kona, Hawaii to attend Discipleship training with YWAM. We will spend 12 weeks in lecture & community outreach on the island followed by 8 weeks of outreach in Africa. Once completed our hope is to minister to the South Sudanese people. We are excited to start this journey and would love for you to continue to cover us in prayer as we prepare.

We are always moving forward & making plans, but as always we continue to let God direct our steps.

Thank you for your continued prayer & financial support. We are blessed to have so many encouraging friends & family loving us.
