moreTo list the blessings we received from God this month would be obnoxious. We could go on forever about all the Lord has done in this short time frame to bless our family and the mission in Honduras. But the verse that we have as our website address seems so appropriate right now:
"DECLARE HIS GLORY AMONG THE NATIONS, HIS MARVELOUS DEEDS AMONG ALL PEOPLES" - Psalms 96:3
We have been blessed beyond measure this month, and it all came from HIM. Not because of anything we did. We hear from so many people that they are proud of us, or to keep up the great work, but we always share that without Him we would fail. We know that to be true! He is glorious, He is faithful, He is worthy of ALL praise!
It was because of Him opening doors that we were able to share our calling at Reach Community Church in Leland and that Ryan had even more opportunities to preach the Word this month at Bethel Presbyterian Church in Raeford, Solid Rock Church in Sanford, and Cornerstone Community Church in Lynchburg, VA. It was because of Him that we received blessings from each one of these churches and were led to people who have encouraged us and come along side of us on this mission.
It was because of Him that the Fundraising Dinner we hosted this month was beyond what we could have ever imagined. He blessed us with a team to help put on the dinner ---an amazing family of people we have met over our years serving at Grace Church--- all who are answered prayers we have been lifting up since last fall. The dinner itself raised funds we thought would take months to raise! God is too good. And we could not have done it without your prayers, or without Him!
He has blessed us with family able to visit and be a part of dedicating Ezra to the Lord at church, and who support our calling. He has blessed us with friends all over the country who check in with us see how we are doing with our drastically changing lives. And we know we are imperfect people, sinners who aren't anything special, but we feel so thankful for the love of our families, friends, and even strangers we have met at different churches. And we know we are blessed because of Him.
We know that in our last month here in North Carolina, He will bless us with many more divine appointments and we are looking forward to time with friends who have become like family to us before we leave.
We want to thank you all for your prayers & support as we transition once again from the South to the North before heading out to Honduras full time in January. In November, we will be speaking at a couple more churches and are also having a final fundraiser here in NC to support a shipment of our belongings and humanitarian aid to be sent down in December. It will be whirlwind of a month we are sure; but are in awe of how God has brought us one step closer to raising and equipping disciples to change the nation of Honduras! To Him be the glory.
