Hope you've had a great Sunday!  We have had a great MONTH of Sundays, presenting our ministry to three different churches!  
We've been down in Pennsylvania to Kingsley Community Church, out to Sherman Bible Chapel in Chad's hometown of Deposit and to  Port Crane Baptist, just in our backyard, for a Missions Conference and everywhere we've gone ........ there's been a ton of love!

We can't imagine how everything will come together to get us to the field, but we know that God has called us and therefore He will provide a way!  We love watching God at work! Thank you SO much for praying for us and being a part of this adventure!  How is God working in your life?  We pray that you are seeing Him at work THROUGH you and in those around you!
Waiting to serve,
