Here, There and Everywhere
August 28th, 2021

Where in the world are the Blairs?


We have been back in the States since June 13th, and have hit the ground running! God has been so faithful, and we have already been so blessed by our time here! We've loved connecting with old friends, and even making some new ones. It has been an honor visiting churches and share about the ministries we're involved with in Slovenia. Here are some of the highlights!

Getting There

Traveling with young children is never easy, but COVID-19 restrictions made it even more difficult. We were very thankful however for smooth flights, no lost luggage, and an overall good flying experience. We know many of you were praying for us, and we are so thankful for that covering!
We were extremely thankful to be able to move right into our home for this season, a missions house provided by Life Church of Fruitland Park. It is a huge blessing which allows us to keep our home in Slovenia.

Visiting Churches

We are so thankful for all of our partner churches! We've already been able to visit 13 churches in the time that we have been back. It's always a joy for us to update you on all the different ministries that your faithful prayers and giving make possible! We love introducing you to our friends and neighbors through stories, and giving you a little insight into what our lives in Slovenia look like. We've been able to be in churches in Florida, Ohio and Tennessee, and we can't wait to visit even more!

General Council

One of the joys of being States-side is getting to attend events, such as General Council! This year Dan served as part of the core team for the Europe booth, which involved coming in a day early to set up and then tearing it down at the end of Council. We really enjoyed being in the Europe booth during the week, and talking to visitors about how they can be praying for Europe and get more involved. We saw many of you there, at it was such a pleasure!

Connecting With Individual Partners

We are blessed to have many friends who consider us *their* missionaries, and partner with us directly. We've had so much fun getting to see so many of you!
Some very dear friends hosted a Missions Open House, where we could share with people in a more laid-back and personal setting about what God has been doing in Slovenia. It was a tremendous day, where friends poured into us, and made us feel valued. 

Hope4Slovenia Team

As you may remember, our team is growing! When we return to Slovenia, we will be joined by 3 Missionary Associates (MA's). They are incredibly vital to the ministries we will be continuing and starting up! We ask that you would prayerfully consider helping us by partnering with them.

Help Us Climb

Friends, you've already helped us climb halfway to the top of our fundraising goal! This is incredible, thank you so much! We have been overwhelmed and blown away by people's response to the call God has placed on our lives. Thank you for catching the vision along with us! We are still in need of ministry partners, and if God has laid our family on your heart, we want to thank you, and welcome you to team #hope4slovenia.

What's Up Next?

We are currently making our way to Texas for a month to visit partnering churches and individuals as well. We will be in the Houston, San Antonio and Fort Worth areas, so if you'd like to get together for coffee to hear about Slovenia and catch up, please feel free to respond to this email, or write us at! 
Please join us in praying for traveling mercies (we are trying to beat Hurricane Aida through the area) as well as good health for all of us, but and especially our children. 

Thank you

Thank you for your continued love, prayer and support. We are honored to have you as our ministry partners! We pray God's blessing over you! Especially during this time of transition, your faithfulness is a huge encouragement. We appreciate you so much!
