We're excited about so many things and we're eager to share them with you!
Thank you all for your prayers, support and encouragement!
The number one thing we'd like to share with our prayer warriors and supporters is that God has blessed us with another baby...we're expecting and due around May 4. Sarah has been feeling a little better lately, but more tired now than with her last pregnancy. So, she's making sure she's getting a lot of rest!
The end of October marked the end of 5 months of on and off traveling, with 1 or 2 days home between trips. You all know about our summer travels from Washington State to Washington DC...what a blessing and opportunity to learn to trust our Lord more!
This fall's travels have consisted of visiting 5 different states for conferences through which we were able to set up our display, meet and greet pastors and get future meetings set up. Praise the Lord that many of these conferences were spiritually encouraging, as we were able to sit under the teaching of God's word, and very fruitful concerning contacts and setting up meetings. Pray with us that we would see more meetings set in stone on the calendar because of these contacts.
Now, we're taking a breather and spending some much needed time resting and relaxing and taking a break away from the car. Although, we find that we miss our busy, traveling life at times! We look forward to visiting a supporting church in KC, this weekend, though. So, we we'll get some time in the car. ;) On Nov. 21st we'll be helping out a pastor friend in Sioux City, Iowa by speaking at their services while he and his wife need to be away. We look forward to that ministry opportunity as well!
We also enjoyed an opportunity to speak with the students at Faith Baptist Bible College during their Student Missionary Fellowship time. Jim shared with them about deputation, a good topic to cover with this age group. It was an especially encouraging time!
Continue to pray with us about meeting our support goal of 60% by January so we can attend Launch Seminar, and meeting our final goal of 100% by next summer so we can be in Germany then! We are encouraged to know that, whatever the outcome, God is sovereign and has a perfect plan. We are thankful also, to remember that man plans his steps, but it is God Who directs them!
Thank you for praying for us and for your encouragment over the months!
God is Good!
Jim, Sarah, Josefine & Baby :)
