Hey My Friends!
We hope you are all doing well. Things are going great here. We only have 4 weeks left of our lecture phase and then we are off to France and The Netherlands. We are stoked! Our team is so incredible. We are truly becoming a family. We are ready to take revival and reformation to Europe. We believe our team is a piece of the puzzle for this to happen.
We just found out yesterday some things that we will be doing while in France. Our team will be leading and participating in the following things: leading worship and intercession at local churches, working with the local gypsy community, having dinners open to community, teaching English in local schools, street evangelism/ treasure hunts and other things that we don't know yet. We are really focusing on what has already been started there and helping further their strategy. We are excited. We will have more details on the Netherlands soon. We are leaving on March 30th.
We also found out yesterday that we still need about $3,500. For this outreach, we have raised around $9,500. Total outreach is just under $13,000. We know this is a lot, but it costs more for a family. The Lord has blessed us so much. We had a random giving day, a month ago, in our class and fellow students gave us over $2,000. Also, our outreach leaders came up to us 3 weeks ago and told us about an anonymous $2,500 that was put in our Ywam account. Plus many other blessings from friends and family back home. The Lord is good.
Please pray and ask the Lord if you can sow into our lives and ministry for this season. We have also been sowing into other lives and ministries. The Lord blesses us because we long to bless others. We will always live by this. The Lord is in control of everything in our lives!
Also, you guys did ask some questions a couple of weeks ago but I would love some more.
I will write another blog soon about what we have been learning. It's Awesome!
Sincerely and in LOVE!
