Dear friends & family,
We'er still here!  Catch up with us and see how we're coming along in this journey to Nicaragua!  Thank you all for your continued love, prayers and support.  We are so grateful for every one of youl Please share with us how we can be praying for you and what you think of our newsletters.  We want to get you the best information in a way that works!  Let us know what we can do to make reading our newsletters more fun for YOU! 
 

Here WE go!

WHAT a month it's been!
Our monthly partnerships went up 4% this month and our O&P went up 5%!  It's so amazing as we watch the Lord provide!  
We started out the month with a Big trip to Texas, Mom and Dad heading south and the rest staying back home. Our adventure was cut short though when our 11 year old daughter, Gracie, had a first time seizure while staying with our oldest daughter, Shawna. Dad raced home the next morning, gathered the herd and went back to the nest.  We've done all we can medically and all is well with our girl! Praise the Lord that Rachel's mother was with us and stayed with Rachel as she continued on the trip.  Rachel was able to share her testimony at a Ladies Night Out at Community Baptist Church in Danbury,Texas.The event was fantastically over the top and the ladies not only heard the Gospel and of God's love and mercy but were treated to a fabulous evening of fun and prizes!

Next up was Neath Church, in Le Raysville, Pa.  This is a "small" church passionately serving a BIG God! What a fun day we had.  We went home full of encouragement, lunch, a huge thing of homemade maple syrup and some new financial partners!  Thank you Neath for your love!
Undadilla Forks Baptist Church, in Unadilla Forks, NY was our last stop this month. This revitalization church, being led by Pastor Brian Cook is on FIRE for the work of the Lord!  Rachel shared the Word at a women's event Saturday afternoon.  It was a memorable day so full of God's presence. We presented our ministry Sunday morning and again were just showered with encouragement!  Pray for this church as they set forth to do God's Work!

TWO months to GO!

Ahhhhh, it's here!  We have a class in July that we cannot go to if we are NOT at 50%!   AND guess what???????????????  It's only offered ONCE a year in July! So, if we miss it, we have to wait for it next year!  If you are an individual OR a church considering a partnership with us in this ministry, check out our Ministry Partners slots that are STILL open!  Help us get there! Fill one, fill em all!  Every part matters!  Chad's work is super slow and although he still has some projects that he's working on, our income has been cut way back!  We're selling stuff and living on our savings. We are planning on taking off in June for FULL TIME Ministry!  Help us transition by partnering with us!

Ephesians 4:4 "There is ONE BODY and one Spirit, just as you were called to one hope when you were called;"  
We need some arms, toes,ears, noses and feet to go along with our hearts to Nicaragua!  Would YOU consider partnering with us?
