Magnify the Lord With Us!

6 Comments

This is the post you’ve been waiting for (well, other than baby announcements).

We are thrilled, humbled, thankful, and still a little shocked to announce that we have reached 100% of our needed monthly support for Prague!

As you heard in our last update, we reached 92% last month and began praying that the remainder would come in by Thanksgiving, so that we could buy our plane tickets in early December and have most of that month to plan our move. God began to answer those prayers quickly: new individuals came on, current supporters increased their pledges, and we began to hear from the churches we met with in October. Suddenly, at the end of last week the spreadsheet had good news! (And the spreadsheet doesn’t lie.) It was a moment and a day we’ll never forget.

We’re gearing up for a departure in late January. Our stuff will hit the high seas in the middle of the month, then we’ll head out later to try and arrive in Prague just in time to find a flat at about the same time the stuff arrives.

Many of you have walked this trail with us through prayers, giving and loving us through this seemingly endless transition. Many of you know that there were times we doubted whether it would really happen. Many of you have seen some of the good fruit the unexpected delays have brought about. Our God does all things well. Thank you for sharing this journey with us, and for continuing to pray for us.

“The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy!” (Psalm 126)

  1. Yay!!!! God is good!!!! How long did that whole process take…from beginning to end?

  2. We were approved in March 2007, but didn't really start raising support until late that summer. So technically, about 2 1/2 years, but not all that was raising support fulltime.
