May the Lord Bless You and Keep You

May 11, 2017

In trying to think of something witty to write about May, we were reminded of Numbers 6:24-26 "May the Lord bless you and keep you.  The Lord make His face to shine upon you, and be gracious to you; the Lord lift his countenance upon you and give you peace." This is our prayer for all of you, our faithful supporters!


We have had the pleasure of visiting many churches in the past month!  For most of this itineration cycle, we have stayed in our home district, PenFlorida, but this past month we had the opportunity to attend churches in West Florida District, as well as Alabama District.  We were very encouraged by the congregations we visited, it so wonderful to see people on fire for missions!  There was one church in particular, whose missions goal is to partner with a missionary in every country of the world!  Because we are the only Assemblies of God missionaries to Slovenia, this was very exciting for us!

Where We Are At

We just reached 75% of our monthly budget!  This is so exciting, and it is starting to really feel real!  We've started to pack some of our bins with things like winter clothes, and Christmas decorations.  We have received our first extension, and our superiors have given us until July 1st to be funded.  Please be agreeing with us in prayer, that we would be able to meet this deadline, and on our way to Slovenia!

In Other News

We will be starting our visa applications soon, and the timing of it all is very important.  It's hard to know how long the process will take, and once we receive our visas, we have to be in the country within 1 month.  We would appreciate it if you would be praying for us, that the application and approval process would go off without a hitch, and that everything would happen in God's timing.

District Councils

Dan has stayed very busy this month, going to Alabama and West Florida's District Councils.  District Council is a conference which the majority of the pastors from that district attend.  It is a great opportunity to connect, and hopefully book services, set up meetings, and gain support.  We will be going to our own PenFlorida District Council in two weeks, and we would appreciate your prayers during that time!

Thank You

In March and April we did a campaign to reach 70% of our budget.  We contacted many of our personal friends from different phases in our lives, to help us reach that goal, and we are very happy to say that we did!  It was the largest percentage we have gained in such a short time, and we honestly have our friends and family to thank for it!  Thank you to everyone who believes in us enough to make that sacrifice!

This Edition's Aidan-isms

We had a very special thing happen on the way to our service on Palm Sunday weekend.  We were driving in the car, when Aidan said something about Jesus living in our hearts, to which we answered that yes, Jesus lives in Mommy and Daddy's hearts, and that Aidan could ask Jesus to come and live in his heart too, if he wanted.  He told us that he did.  So, driving down the highway, our little missionary kid prayed that Jesus would come into his heart, and that he would always listen to God's voice.  That Sunday, he won a little Jesus figure in Sunday School, and has really enjoyed making Jesus walk on the water, and be a "super hero".
