Okay, family & friends – things are becoming a bit more real, as we’re printing forms, checking our passports, and filling out applications for residency in Hungary!
In prayer & conversations with the local, country, and area leaders – we have set a date of April 1st to be completely funded! We are then praying to head toward Hungary by the week after Easter. Especially with these desires taking concrete shape, we need and invite your help to get there!
It’s been a whirlwind since we began traveling and sharing in 2018. We never imagined what it might look like, and continue to be thankful to our home church as Moundford has continued to let us serve full-time, even as they “send us out” to share at new churches most weekends. Thousands of miles driven by mini-van, and what seems like just as many bathroom breaks. 🙂 By the time we reach April, we will have shared in at least 30 different churches. Some were simply kind enough to let us share our story, and some have responded beyond what we ever imagined, committing for the years ahead. All have joined the most foundational work of praying together for God’s Love, power, and presence. Our job is to be faithful & point toward the ways God is on the move, and how He is calling all of us to respond. We’re humbled by the way so many individuals, families, groups/classes, and churches have contributed toward our family joining the work of God in Hungary.
“Fundraising is always a call to conversion. And this comes to both those who seek funds and those who have funds. Whether we are asking for money or giving money we are drawn together by God, who is about to do a new thing through our collaboration.” – Henri Nouwen, A Spirituality of Fundraising
We invite you to collaborate with us, whether it’s using some of your tax return to give a one-time gift that launches us into the field, or you’re able to commit toward a regular amount of any size that works for your budget to be a part of our ongoing work. God is doing a new thing, and our family has offered Him who we are becoming – and we invite you to offer your resources in that same direction. We are around 65% funded for the two years we’ve committed. All we need is to find 25 more people/churches/groups who can give $100/month, or some variation as explained here.
Thanks for being a part of our journey, and please continue to pray for these next few months. There are still many unknowns that we will navigate, but we are confident with God’s help – and collaborating with the people He has brought us to share life with – we can walk with Him one step at a time no matter where the road may lead.
