95%… beginning final preparations!

In the last several weeks we have been overwhelmed by the growth of our support account, the excitement of our new ministry partners, and all the things that need to be completed for our move to Japan! We are now at 95% of our monthly needs and so close to Japan. Tomorrow morning we will head down to Atlanta for our final home office visit and, pending their approval, a day at the Japanese Consolate! Will you join us in praying for three important next steps?

1. Our last 5% of funds to come in. Please pray that the Lord would bring in just $700 more each month so we can move to Japan. Would you consider asking the Lord if he’s calling you to partner with us in this ministry?  We would love for you to be one of the last 14 people pledging just $50 a month for the next 5 years! To learn more about how to partner with us go to our “Partner With Us” page.

2. Pray that we would find a good apartment that is pet friendly. We are taking our dog Bear to Japan with us and are looking for an apartment downtown near the seminary and our other teammates that will allow dogs. We have great teammates searching vigorously for us in Japan (maybe you should pray for them and their patience with us!) 😉


3. Pray for our paperwork. Please pray as we visit the Japanese Consolate on Monday morning and as we are constantly filling out forms. The Lord controls even our paperwork so please pray that each step would move forward smoothly and quickly.

Thank you for getting us to 95%! Thank you for praying with us and partnering with us in this ministry! Thank you for your encouragement and friendship over the last year and half of our journey!  We are ready and excited about the next phase of God’s story in our lives, and we’re so glad you’re a part of it!

  1. Hooray and praise God and congratulations! I could relate so much to both of your last two newsletters, and I rejoice with you for this one! I’m at about 57% and trying not to be discouraged about that. :-p I’ve started meeting with a woman from my community group at church for more intentional accountability, which has been really helpful. I’m still hoping for a somewhat miraculous August or September departure date for Japan, so we’ll see what happens. We’ll miss you at the Gospel Coalition conference!

  2. Thanks, friends! We’re so thankful for all of you. People ask us how we got here and I just tell them I have no idea. God is on the throne indeed.
