To Denver and Back Again

I wrote last before we left for a great trip to Colorado. On our way, I had the opportunity to interview with the elders of Alameda Bible Church in Albuquerque. This is a step in their process of getting to know potential missionary partners. We are excited for this development. Please pray as the elders consider partnering with our mission to Kenya this week.

From Albuquerque we traveled on to Brighton, Colorado. We heard there for the first time for certain that Community Baptist Church has voted to become our partners. Their monthly support brought us over 75% of our approved budget and that much closer to reaching Kenya. Though our time with CBC was brief, it was good to catch up with our friends there and get to know them better.

Before returning to El Paso, we had the privilege of serving with High Country Baptist Church in Colorado Springs. While we were there we stayed with our new friends, the Bixbys. Our three kids had a blast with their ten. Their family story uniquely displays God's wisdom and care for his people; Jenny and I will never forget it.

We're grateful to the Lord Jesus for providing safety in our travels and progress on our support levels. We're also thankful that Josiah and Jamin have recovered from a nasty stomach bug they came down with in Colorado Springs.

Please pray that we are able to continue to connect with new partners and that the Lord Jesus would provide for our needs to get to Kenya quickly. God delights in coming to our rescue as we call upon his name.
