With 13 days left before our March 31st financial deadline we recognize that the task before us is humanly impossible. We see clearly now what was always true: We cannot do it, it has to be God. My wife was able to be at our home church this Sunday and during the sermon felt the impact of Jesus’ words in Matthew 19:26 ‘Jesus looked at them intently and said, “Humanly speaking, it is impossible. But with God everything is possible.”’ Truly salvation is impossible for man, but God has provided a way. How much more capable is He with temporal things like finances. Nothing can stop Him from accomplishing His will!
This week God has been reminding us that He is faithful and will provide. The trust and faith He is building in us on this journey is truly exciting!
Currently we are at 76.7% of our monthly budget pledged. We need 100% pledged before the end of Easter Sunday. Please pray with us that many more people will join our team! Every monthly pledge, no matter the size, helps us reach our goal and bring us closer to being able to leave. Please pray about joining our team if you have not already. We would love to partner with you!

We are excited to be planning our departure for May 5th. There is a lot still to do, but it is all worth it. For the glory of God in the nations!
Thank you all for your continued interest, prayers and gifts in making the gospel available to all people. We wanted to let you know that God is answering prayers!
A few weeks ago in our newsletter, we mentioned a few one-time financial needs. Over the past few weeks we have had people give specifically to those needs! Praise God!!
- We have received money specifically for a computer purchase that will cover the entire expense.
- Also, our home church took a one time offering that we will be using to pay for medical expenses related to visas!
It’s so exciting to see God’s people catch a vision for what He is doing and give so generously.
We ask for continued prayer that the Lord would complete our financial team by our end of March deadline. We were at 67% of our budget when we first communicated about our departure date, and now are at 73.2%. Pray that The Lord continues to connect us with people who are interested in seeing God’s Word move powerfully among the Deaf.
We are also still gathering prayer teams for our children. If you are interested in praying specifically for Immanuel or Jude, let us know so that we can keep you updated with requests for them. We plan on sending out the first updates on them within the next week or two.
We are excited to see what God does as He continues to show His faithfulness. We are confident that He wants to speak to the Deaf in the way they understand best and are privileged to be a part of what He is doing.
