Steps of Faith That Launch Us
June 3rd marks a year ago that we completed our Crossroads DTS(discipleship training school - class photo above) with YWAM. As we reflect on how amazing God has been, we remember those who have been a part of the bedrock, the foundation of this ministry through our family! Several of you responded financially to our initial start up last year which was answer to prayer! And some more have joined along the way, while God has filled in the gaps supernaturally, as well!  Since then, God has been stretching us in our finances and life of prayer, and friendships.... God doesn’t always use the same method of provision, does He? In the asking of friends and family to support us financially, we feel the Lord saying to come out on the water with Him....our main focus will remain prayer first. Money will come and go, but prayer lasts for all eternity! It goes to the Master of all finances who holds the stars in place, who can part seas for his people, let fresh manna fall from heaven, because He is our daily bread! He owns the cattle of the hills! The earth is the Lords and all that dwells in it! We will continue to place our trust in Him alone.  Because .."the Lord’s ear is inclined to the righteous!" Psalm 116.2
Your prayers are extremely
precious to us!
We will continue to simply let our needs be known and let the Lord guide and lead each of you in obedience to His calling to give.

The Internship and Mission Trip to Greece

We are headed to Greece to share Jesus with refugees!

In case you just joined the newsletter, let me recap! Back in August 2017, Israel took a secondary school with YWAM here in Colorado Springs called the SOSM (School of Strategic Missions). The 3 month lecture phase was about many different aspects of cross-cultural ministry, to Muslims mainly. To complete the school, Israel needs to do an internship with a ministry overseas
in a strategic place for ministry for 3 months minimum.
So, Greece is our next family mission trip!

We have secured our apartment overseas in Athens for the three month trip!
Now we need our airfare.

Our travel expenses in total are $5000.

Maybe you always wanted to go to the mission field, but cant.
Maybe instead, you can participate by giving and sending! 

Whatever the Lord leads you to give towards this goal, is amazing! We are so grateful for your prayers and support! We hope to purchase our
plane tickets by the end of June!
FINALLY - (after much pursuit) We organized an outreach to refugees in our city on a day with good weather and no holidays! (It was actually Cinco De Mayo! But that didn't effect this crowd. haha!)
Things went along quite well and it gave us a greater outlook on how many volunteers we will need for further ministry in the city. As the Lord leads, YWAM staff will build upon these new relationships.

As we leave this behind it is in the LORD's hands and those who will faithfully steward this ministry! We are ready to come home to Texas for the summer and see lots of your lovely faces! We are packing and departing from Colorado soon!

If we haven't made contact with you yet, please reply here to this email or look us up on facebook! We would love to stop in and have coffee, catching up with all God is doing in your life!
