I Hope you are all well! We are doing fantastic, kinda! We are packing. Is packing ever fun? We are getting all of our things ready for storage and travel. Shannon is a cleaning out machine. She is having a hard time getting rid of some things, so be praying for her(I am not being totally serious. But if you know Shannon, I am being completely serious!)
We leave this coming Tuesday! Oh man! We are excited. This is the 1st time that I will be out of the U.S.A. We are pumped about France. Yesterday, we had the privilege of having Joe and Judy Portale come share with our team and pray for us. They have been missionaries to France and the french speaking world for 40 yrs. We know we are going into a place that has been sown in and the time for harvest is coming! We are the workers of this harvest.
We want to also let you know that we have been invited by the leadership of Fire and Fragrance to staff the upcoming Circuit Riders school that starts July 7th. This is a 5 week school that focuses on going and establishing Christ-centered communities around the world that live out the 1st and 2nd commandments. This is our heart, to love Christ and to love those who we encounter. You can read more about circuit riders at http://fireandfragrance.com/.
We love you all and we just wanted to give all of you a quick update.
Blake, Shannon, Shiloh and Arrow!
