The radio silience of this blog has certainly been an indicator of our real life, but finally we have taken the time to make a newsletter. Check it out. Hopefully some more action will take place around here.
This past week has been a lot of prepping for paper-cuts. Next week we will be printing and stuffing over a hundred envelopes full of the plans for our future. This is a very important first step into our official fund-raising phase, getting the word out. Our goal is to have at least 100 monthly[…]
It has been a few months since we returned from our last mission in Poland in October, 2008. It was a learning experience that we will never forget. From the exhausting flights and layovers to sickness and injury then to miraculous healing and building of new relationships we gained a new desire for the Nation[…]
This new year marks the beginning of a very important phase in our ministry. Beginning this month we begin our long-term mission campaign! Our church council and missions team have cleared the way to send us as long term missionaries to Kraków, Poland. From this point forward we’ll be seeking at least 100 donors to[…]
Sometime we wish we could hire (or better yet, find a very nice person to donate some time) to take care of the details of fund raising, reconciling accounts, and communicating with our support network. We have a lot of details to get through, and sometimes the job is smaller than we imagine, it just[…]
There are no words for me to describe what happened today, our God is so loving. Even though we walk through valleys, even though our closest friends face surmountable challenges, His faith in us does not waver. The favor He has shown us, our work in Poland, and us as a couple, keeps us humbled.[…]
So, God is truly a LAST minute God, I know he always has been, and that wont’ be changing it looks like. We’ve gone from, not sure if Corey and Jenise will be coming to their coming FOR SURE. In the past two hours over $950 has been secured! PRAISE JESUS! From three different donors,[…]
Tomorrow night we will receive prayer from our church as they send us off to Kraków. We are $658 short of buying our last two tickets, and tomorrow night we make the decision as to how we navigate this, as I see it we have the following options. Pay for the tickets, covering the shortage[…]
We’re VERY close to our next big hurrdle! On Monday we must pay the remaining balance of our airfare on five of the 7 tickets we need. We are short by $406, and we have 3 days, we lose our deposit ($3,370) if we don’t pay the remaining balance by Monday. The last two tickets[…]
Last week I had a dream (in my sleep) that when I received the next account balance it was over $7,000, I’m believing it, and holding on to it. I rarely remember my dreams, and this was fairly vivid. Another kind of dream that I have, is that our ministry never be there to support[…]
Wow, can’t believe we have just 15 days left of fundraising! Yet, we’re a long way off from being finished. Here’s where we are!
This is a very rough count, I haven’t added up all the eggs yet. But we’re around the 56 donors mark. We’re gunna need to ramp this up folks! That’s it, just a quick update, more official news coming soon!
Hey Friends! Well the first (partial) week of our $15 challenge brought in 20 donors! How many more this week? We just need 447 more donors (of just $15, or more), pass this along to your missions friends, family, churches. We have $6,455 more to raise/contribute. Remember this is for the team, not[…]
We’ve had 6 nope 10 people donate or pledge so far and it’s been basically just a day since we started this campaign. Thanks! The amazing (strange) thing is that for the most part some of our largest, and most responsive donations have come from people we don’t have much contact with… now that could be taken as,[…]
We know why we’re called to Poland, and we know God has not brought us this far just to turn back and say no. There is much work that has started and is incomplete, our brothers and sisters, our friends, await us to connect in Christ. To bring a message that is not laced with[…]
Hi Everyone, Due to the small number of people able to attend our fund raiser this Friday, we have decided to refocus our resources into (hopefully) a more productive campaign. The event we had planned for this Friday is canceled. Stay tuned for the next couple of days while we re-work a new fund[…]
Well we have made the deposit on our airfare, we need $4,755 more and we’ll have it all paid off! That’s better than the $8,125 we needed just two weeks ago! We are so thankful to God. We need the remaining balance by September 15th… so we are praying, and seeking God’s will, on finding the rest. If we[…]
We have just 11 days to our Polish Feast fundraiser… If you are able to attend, visit the events page (under more, above). If you are unable to make it, but would still like to donate, you may do so on the right. THANKS!
Just a quick reminder, that YOU and anyone you think may want to come, is invited to our Polish dinner and dessert night. August 15th, 7pm, Gresham, OR – East Hill Youth Center West (50 NW 5th ST, Gresham, OR) Come to pray for our team, listen to our hearts, see what we are doing[…]
We are not the self-promoting kind of people, in fact, it is so hard for us to ask for donations, ask people to hear our hearts, yet all at once we know people won’t see it until they hear it. So we humble ourselves and keep a constant focus on fund raising. It is very[…]
