Blessings Continue

Praise the Lord for His never ending blessings. We were able to speak in our home church this last Sunday and it was great to fellowship with people that are excited about what God is doing in our lives. I am no longer working at a local hospital, but this has allowed me to accomplish many task in the past two weeks. God has allowed me to contact and inform many people and several churches about our coming time in Japan. It is very encouraging being able to talk to people face to face and both Stephanie and I hope that this will help to grow our prayer and financial partners both in number and in their desire to see God move in Japan. We are still in Lynchburg VA but have set a date of June 18th for our move to North Carolina and a tentative date of Aug 15th as the date we would like to leave for Japan. We are still looking at plane ticket prices so that we can get the best deal possible but hope that we can purchase them soon. As of today we are currently at 17% of our monthly $3200 Support that we need to be in Japan. While $3200 seems like an insurmountable number it is nothing to our God that owns the cattle on a thousand hills (Ps 50:10- I like the farm reference). If we had just 55 more people that would commit to donate $50 a month we would exceed our goal of $3200. We are very grateful to those that have already committed to support us on any level, whether $5 a month, a one time donation, or committing to become a prayer partner. We are extremely thankful for the prayer partners because if somebody is praying for you then you know that they care about you and are willing to take time to intercede on your behalf. Thanks again for all of your thoughts and prayers. Please don't hesitate to call or email if you have any questions, ideas or thoughts.
