Dear Friends & Family, 
Thank you for sticking with us!  Thank you for reading our newsletters and most of all thank you for praying!

Holy Moly Pre-Field!

Forget the whole, "in like a lion and out like a lamb" jargon, we've got the whole zoo involved!
Early in March we were in Atlanta Georgia, and Myrtle Beach for some family rest and relaxation and we visited two churches on our journey!  We have completed several of our pre-field assignments and are working on finishing some research reports.  April took us North East!  We had two mission conferences, one in Sherman, NY and the other in Brockport, NY. Rachel was blessed with the opportunity to speak at the Daughter's of the King Banquet in Perkasie, PA and we rounded out the month with a nice hometown presentation of our ministry at Brushville Baptist Church in Susquehanna, PA.  
Our adventures these last couple months have taken us through things that we never would have imagined.  Our daughter, Gracie, has had a total of 3 Grand Mal seizures in the last 3 months and has been diagnosed with Epilepsy.  We've been through some deep waters with our girl but God has a big boat!  We are so thankful for all the love and support we have in the Body of Christ!  Gracie has begun treatment with medication and the doctor has assured us that we have plenty of time, before we actually leave the US, to get her epilepsy under control.  Praise the Lord for all He's done for us!

Can we..................... get to 50% by July 1st?+

The time is fast approaching!  That deadline we've been talking about for the last year!  We set our goals, have been working hard to meet them, prayed for the Lord's will and now we're excited to see what happens!  We don't know anymore than you do!  haha!  What a newsletter huh?  We've presented our ministry to 18 churches and a dozen large and small groups.  We'll see what the Lord will do with all that!  $2,025 is the amount we still need in monthly committed partnerships to reach 50%. If you want to partner with us, check out the Ministry Partners sheet below for openings!  We'll be super excited if you take one or all of them!  Thanks again for YOUR support! All our love to you from our family!
Love always, The Strongs
