Off we go! We said good bye to all our Toledo friends at the end of August and headed down south to begin the next leg of this exciting journey.
We are now on the next phase of the transition to the missionary life. Some amazing friends in Alabama invited us to stay with them after we sold our home in Ohio. Their church, Wall Highway Baptist Church, opened up their Missionary Home to our family so we can stay there rent-free while we continue seeking new ministry partners.
So what’s next? On Sunday, Josh leaves for missionary training at the New International campus in Fort Myers, Florida. He’ll be joined by several other new missionaries and the core staff at New International as they pour their experience into all the new adventurers. He’ll learn about finances, partnership development, and vision casting; and he’ll start planning his first video projects for the organization.
Financial Progress Update
We’ve had the privilege to meet with many individuals and churches over the past couple months. Currently, we are over 50% of our goal! We still have many contacts to make and meetings to schedule. God has opened so many doors and the outpouring of support encourages us to keep pressing on!
As we meet with people to explain our new path, we have been encouraged and inspired to hear how God is working in their lives as well. God is moving His people to action. Calling His people to have the audacity to believe His word and then act as though He will honor His Word.
