Here are our most recent prayer letters. Enjoy!
Mission Board Transition Process If you recall in our last prayer letter, the mission board of our sending church, Shawnee Baptist Missions has been discontinued, and so we have been in the process of finding a new mission board to go out under. Since our mission board is a VERY important part of our lives as missionaries, this transition CANNOT be done without due diligence, and prayer, and following the leading of the Holy Spirit, both on our part AND on the part of the mission board that will be taking us in. That being said, we are very thankful for God’s provision and for his direction.

After looking behind to see God’s grace and mercy in our ministry so far, I am excitedly looking forward to what God is going to do in the next ten years, as He allows us to be used by Him!
