A Year In Review

January 3, 2017

As of January 1st, we have been itinerating for 1 entire year. We have driven 34,441 miles, visited 88 churches, in 6 states, and had over 40 meetings with individuals.  We have been blessed beyond words by churches and people in too many churches to name.  We are thankful that so many churches have welcomed us to share our heart for the people of Slovenia.  We are excited that so many people and congregations have partnered with us, thank you!  One of the most exciting things we were able to do, was visit the Slovenian Embassy in Washington D.C.  Since it is technically Slovenian land, we could actually pray for the people of Slovenia on Slovenian soil!

A Year in the Life

2016 has been a year of challenges and stretching for our family.  Dan had resigned his position as a youth pastor at the very end of 2015, and Abigail resigned from her job as a Kindergarten teacher in June.  We both suffered the loss of grandparents.  Abigail’s paternal grandmother passed in March, and her paternal grandfather passed in July.  We were all able to travel back for their funerals.  Dan’s maternal grandmother passed away in September, and he was able to fly back and perform the funeral.  Through all of these things though, the joy of the Lord has truly been our strength!  Although it has been for somber reasons, this does mean that we have been blessed to see our families more than expected.

Aidan has remained our energetic, funny and loving boy!  He adores hotels, going to new places and making new friends in nurseries!  Whenever we get in the car, he says, “this is the life, dudes!”

"We reached 50% of our monthly Budget"

In 2016, we reached 50% of our monthly budget, thanks to our supporters, just like you! You are the reason we've come so far! Thank you so much for your continual and generous support to see lives changed by Jesus’ message of hope for Slovenia! Our prayer is to have 100% of our budget raised by the end of June. If you have not made a monthly commitment yet, please prayerfully consider what God would have you do. Together we can spread Jesus’ message of hope for a nation! You can go to to commit to give. There are not enough words to thank you!  We truly believe that we are partners, and in this together!

January marks 1 year of itineration for our family. If you've heard Dan's testimony, you know how important it is to our family to "be the 1"! So during this New Year, we wanted to challenge you to spend the first month of the year finding ways to "be the 1" in the lives of the people around you. What will you do today, to "be the 1" that changes someones life forever?
