We’ve been back for a week in Sacramento and we’re watching the river as well as our support account rise. Ryan and I have taken this week to catch up on paperwork and begin some of the planning for our May and June road trip across the country. We both love the people part of our job but there are a lot of emails, phone calls, text messages and lists that have to happen in order to allow for and prepare for as well as make the most of our time with people.Last support update we reported that we were at 45% of our 50% goal but now we are at almost 49%! Although we still have another 50% to go until we’re fully supported, it is encouraging to see people coming alongside us and joining our ministry. God has been providing from generous and unexpected sources. We’re so excited to be this close to our March goal.So what is still needed? As of Friday night we need $150 a month in pledges to reach 50%. This means that just two individuals or couples giving $75 a month could join our ministry and help us reach our goal. Maybe for you a more realistic number is $20 a month and about 8 people at $20 a month can enable Ryan and I to attend the July training. It’s easy to give by contacting MTW (Mission to the World) or using their online giving site: donations.mtw.org.Please continue to spread the word. Thank you to everyone who has been advocating for us. We love sharing our story and meeting new people. Advocating is as easy as talking about Australia and encouraging others to find out about our ministry (Why Australia?) and give.Please keep praying for rain and for our support. Please pray for more rain and for the rivers and lakes to continue to rise in California. We have enjoyed watching the river rise as we continue to work towards our support for Australia. Please pray that we would be above and beyond 50% by the end of March. And finally please be praying how you can support us. Thank you for helping us get to Australia!
