"O&P" Oufit & Passage
Outfit & Passage, "O&P", is the money that we need to have on hand when it comes time for us to leave for the field (leaving for language school IS leaving for the field). This money will be used to get us to Nicaragua and help us set up our home.
During language school we will not have time to raise more funds. ABWE requires that we have our monthly support AND our O&P fully funded to leave for language school. Upon completion of language school we will have what we need to immediately leave for Nicaragua. It is most beneficial in our development of learning the Spanish language to get to the field as quickly as possible.
Our total O&P is $57,500. We will need to raise 100% of this total amount before we leave for language school. Currently we have 30% of our O&P.
As we develop monthly financial partners, (see below for more information on MFP's) the support they give each month will go into our O&P account because we are not drawing on our account at this time. Our plan is that Chad will continue working at Joe Hunt & Associates for most of our pre-field journey. By doing this we can raise our O&P funds quickly. Chad's employer, Joe Hunt, is a believer in our Lord Jesus Christ and has supported us above and beyond what we could have imagined any employer doing. He is allowing Chad very flexible hours and continues to be an encouragement to both of us as we set out on this adventure. What a blessing it is to see the Body of Christ come together to work for His Glory in His time!
