Dear family and friends,
A lot has happened in the last couple months. The Lord continues to bless me financially and spiritually through your prayers and support. Several changes have occurred with my opportunity to serve orphans in Luoyang China. Our departure date has been pushed back several weeks due to delays in building construction. However we will be leaving no later than the first week of March. Our living situation has also changed as we may now be living in the orphanage as opposed to an apartment near the orphanage. This decision could change after we arrive in China but does not affect the amount of money I will need to raise or the dynamics of how we will minister to the children. In other words the only people who will be affected by this is my roommate Chrissy and I. Fundraising hit off well as I have received approximately $6,400 in pledges and donations. It truly has been a blessing watching God work as He continues to provide. I will need to raise an additional $6,000-$7,000 more depending on the cost of airfare. In order to do this I will be having a garage sale in January as well as sending out more letters and presenting this opportunity to my home church. Again I would like to thank everyone for your prayers and support. Please continue to pray for our team and the children we will be working with.
“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.”
