We can't wait to get to Nicaragua, and as time marches by we know that it's only getting closer and closer. Moments sneak into our hearts when we think about "The Day" when we will drive away from everything that we've ever known and we find ourselves having to catch our breath.  This pre-field ministry has become our life! Being in different churches, staying in far away places, long car rides, shopping at various Walmarts, making new friends, falling in love with people and places, it's just the beginning of this journey.  We've been living this pursuit of full time missions and we love it that your right here with us.
 
     Our next goal
is to get to 50% monthly support!  One of our trainings, EMC (Essential Missions Components), is coming up fast! We missed it last year, it only comes once a year in July, because you must be at 50%.  So to reach this goal, we're praying that we'll get into more churches and that some individuals will join us too. We really want to reach this goal by the end of March.  It would be a real encouragement to us.  If you can hook us up with a church or if the Lord moves your heart to partner with us, please let us know so our family can celebrate!  We would love for you to pray for our ministry, our marriage and our children.  We're ready to be at 100% and on our way to language school and the kids wonder, "How much longer is this going to take?".  As we work and wait we are so thankful for all of you that read our letters and pray for us.    
     Two weeks ago our little Lily, in a sledding accident, lacerated her face so badly that you could put your finger through her lip. She was stitched inside her lip, on the outside and then inside her mouth.  We were so grieved over the pain she would experience while healing. Well, our fears were foolishness! We have been totally amazed at her lack of pain and her resilience in dealing with keeping the bandage on her face! She has not missed a beat of life and there is just no answer for the lack of discomfort! The doctor took great lengths to describe the level of pain she would be in and encouraged us to endure it with her!
     The only explanation we have for her comfort is the answer to the prayers that have been lifted up to our Warrior King! Thank you faithful friends and family for praying for all of this! We are so grateful to the Lord!  
     Hopefully, the next time we write, we will be on our way to 100% and well past 50%!  We have great confidence in our God and His people!  Thank you dear friends!

"The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ."
2 Corinthians 10:4-5
