Dear supporters and friends,
It’s hard to believe that we’re only 3 months from our departure to Peru. In the meantime, we wanted to give you an update about what is going on in our journey.
First, we’d like to share some praise and thanks! Thank you to all of those who donated suitcases to us as well as our friends who kindly donated clothes for Gaby!! It is always amazing to see God’s provision! We were also able to see His provision in the renting of our house. It was a bit stressful to not have it rented for such a long time, but in the end He calmed (once again) our anxiety and provided the perfect couple to rent it.
I have included information below regarding the rest of our plans, our current needs, and our prayer requests.
When are you leaving?
January 14: The whole family will go to North Carolina for missionary training with JAARS.
February 24: We come back to MN to visit with and say good bye to friends and family.
March 12: Departure to Peru.
What are your needs?
We are still in need of monthly supporters. If you have been thinking about supporting us, now is the time! We still need 30% to reach our goal. We humbly ask you to step up in faith and join us on our journey. If you would like to part of our support team we will be happy to send you more information.
What should we pray about?
- For protection on our road trip to North Carolina.
- For our children during their transition to home schooling. (…and for their new teacher!)
- For smooth transitions and adaptability during our moving from place to place.
We are so humble and grateful for all of you! We appreciate your friendship and support, your financial gifts, and your prayers on our behalf. We are always praising God because of your obedience to Him enabling us to serve others. We pray that this Christmas you would feel His presence and continue to praise Him with your lives.
Feliz Navidad and have a blessed New Year!
Joel, Giannina, Diego, Joey and Gaby
