The Final Countdown
It’s hard to believe, but I’m on the final stretch! On September 25, I board a plane for Santa Cruz de la Sierra, Bolivia.
I am grateful for all of you who have made this kingdom work possible through prayer and offerings. I’ve witnessed the Lord preparing a path for me to head south and begin this new ministry and a very new chapter in my life.
August was full of marking off items on my ever-growing to do list and beginning the process of saying my goodbyes to family and friends. Here are the highlights from the month:
~ Traveled to Indiana for my cousin’s wedding and then swung through Illinois to visit more family: my parents, two of my grandparents, a cousin, and my brother and his family (pics below).
~ Visited Good Shepherd Church in Camarillo for the second time. This was a good time of fellowship and encouragement. Thank you, Pastor Jim Johnson, for making this possible.
~ Established that my last day as a producer at Salem Media Group will be September 15. I’ve worked at Salem for 13 years.
~ Completed my TEFL (Teaching English as a Foreign Language) certification.
Prayer Requests & Praises
~ Praise God that my preparations for leaving have been smooth sailing so far.
~ Please pray that I would cherish and enjoy these final 4 weeks with friends and family.
~ Ask that God would move the hearts and minds of Bolivian students to desire to know Him.
Lots of people have been asking me where I will be living when I arrive in Bolivia and when I will be returning to the U.S. to visit:
1. I will be staying in a dorm room at El Alfarero (The Potter) for the first few months until I find a permanent place to live.
2. I’ll likely be returning for a visit around Christmas of 2018.
I’ve raised 88% of my goal for year one. Please help push me across the finish line!
