Spring 2010 support letter

Spring 2010 Support Letter

Dear Friends,

How has God been working in your life lately? There has been no shortage of God working in our lives. Over the past several months God has been slowly revealing His amazing plan for our future. It has also included many steps of faith. The first development is that we are expecting baby #3 the first week in August. So far, Sandy has been feeling fine except for tired from running after a very active Josiah and increasingly active Lydia. Also, this past month we put our condo on the market and trust that if God wants us to sell, He will bring the right buyer at the right time. Selling would give us a lot of financial and locational flexibility and would be necessary before we can go to Sierra Leone. Where would we live if we sell? Just another step of faith. One option would be New Orleans. Jeneson was recently accepted to the Diploma program in Tropical Medicine at Tulane University. This is one of the few Tropical Medicine programs in the country and a great opportunity for Jeneson to take first-rate courses in tropical medicine and public health as we prepare for Sierra Leone. He will be a full-time student from the end of August to mid-December.

God has also been at work through Global Outreach Mission (GOM). GOM has recently been working on a water project in Sierra Leone. The beginning of February saw the delivery of a well drilling rig to Freetown, Sierra Leone. In fact, our good friend Dan, after hearing us talk so much about GOM and their work in Sierra Leone, decided to partner with GOM and is currently there until July working with the well drilling rig and digging wells at the hospital site and some of the local schools and churches. Recently a short-term team from the States helped dig the first well at a school in Moribatown. The pictures of the children enjoying the fresh water are priceless. The work on Mokanji hospital has also begun.

So, what is the next step for us? While we continue to patiently wait for God’s next work in our lives we continue to faithfully seek out support. In addition to the situations mentioned above, we are asking for prayer for the people of Sierra Leone, that God would make their hearts fertile to hear the amazing story of the Gospel. We are also praying for Dan and his work with the water project and financial and material provisions for the construction work on Mokanji hospital. Additionally, we are still in need of people to step out in faith with us and support us financially. A big THANK YOU to those who have already given and to those who have partnered with us regularly. We need to obtain 100% support before we can go to minister to the people of Sierra Leone. One-time financial gifts are greatly appreciated, but we are asking for people to share our vision for the people of Sierra Leone and pledge $50-$100/month. Will you partner with us?

Please use the enclosed prayer card to indicate your willingness to support us and mail it back to GOM. If you have any questions or want to know more about how God is leading us, please do not hesitate to contact us. Sandy is going to try to update our blog (http://abrahamadventures.blogspot.com) more frequently so you can keep up with us in between our prayer letters. You can find more information and pictures from the most recent trip to Sierra Leone there.

Proverbs 16:3 Commit your work to the LORD, and your plans will be established.
