My family and I hope you had a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Another year has come with a “clean slate,” and we are anxious to see how the Lord will use us this year. We trust that the Lord will give you a great year with your family and ministries. We always treasure the prayers, cards, and gifts during Christmas. Thank you for loving on us during the Christmas season.
Since we found out and relayed the $16,000 need for our visa fees, God has been providing from places we’d least expect it. We visited a small church, and they allowed us to present that Wednesday night. We thoroughly enjoyed the time with them, and we mentioned, as a prayer request, the costs for our visas. They started praying and sent $1,500 for our visas just before Christmas! Hallelujah! Our hearts are overwhelmed by the united effort behind these unexpected costs, and my family and I rejoice over how the Lord is using people from around the world to help with these costs. Thank you!
1. Visa fees – We have had $10,359.04 come in in just over two months. Praise the Lord! Please pray for the remaining $5,640.96 to come in quickly. As soon as the remainder comes in, we can apply for our visas.
2. Visa application – Pray for the paperwork process to go through smoothly and quickly.
3. Transition – As my family and I get acclimated to the UK again, pray for us as we adjust to the English culture once again.
4. Safety as we travel
Thank you so much for your love for our family. Supporting churches have increased our support, new churches have partnered with us, and God has used so many to assist with the visa fees. With a very grateful heart, we are excited to take these next steps to return to the UK. We love you!
Yours for the souls of England
