Tuttle Times – Fall 2009
We are here! We are FINALLY here at the Teen Missions base in Florida!! Thank you so much for all the support, encouragement and prayer that got us to this point.
We arrived to a wonderful reception of fellow staff families unloading our truck, providing meals and offering to help in any way they could. In the midst of this we all got sick! It didn’t last too long, but it did increase the homesickness for the kids.
Praise the Lord, we are adjusting! Wes started school at Merritt Island High. Seth has been fishing at every given opportunity and Emily has already made several girlfriends who come to play every day.
Because I am still homeschooling Seth and Emily, Brian and I are working a split shift at Teen Missions. He goes in from 6a.m. to 2p.m. and I work from 1p.m. to 5p.m. Brian is working in the Mechanics Shop, as well as Land Crew. This can be a big job since the Teen Missions Florida base includes 250 acres. I am working in the Personnel Department, specifically handling the Promotions of Teen Missions and its many different ministries: Teen Missions Summer Teams, AIDS Orphans & Street Children, Motorcycle Sunday School Missions. There is much to be done!
The new brochure for the 2010 summer teams will be available on line Thanksgiving Day! They have some awesome teams lined up. We are excited to see where God will place us.
We are almost unpacked, which helps it feel more like home. It is different to be wearing shorts at the end of October. I don’t think the kids have any spots of skin untouched by mosquitoes on their legs!
We would ask that you please keep us in your prayers as we continue to visit churches, looking for where God would have us serve and grow in Him.
We plan to be home for Christmas and hope to see many of you then. If any of you would like for us to speak to your church, Sunday School class or youth group regarding Teen Missions and the many ways to serve or be involved, please let us know.
We do want to be up front in saying that our committed monthly support level is well below where it needs to be. We know and believe that God is in control and that He will provide for our needs! Please prayerfully consider supporting us financially, if you are not at this time. Please know that ANY amount would be appreciated. We will be in touch and will be lifting you up in prayer as well! God bless you!
Brian, Amber, Wes, Seth and Emily Tuttle
