Our Family and Friends In Christ,
It is such an honor to be writing our first staff newsletter. We are here and so excited to be serving with Teen Missions!! It’s hard to believe it’s only been a few months since we first arrived. We have been busy in such a great way!
Justin has started working on the Land Crew at the base. It entails many different jobs—renovations, mowing, trimming, and many more tasks. He also has been running a camera during the morning chapel.
I am going into the base part time. I help in many departments, doing any job that needs done. I also continue to homeschool Noah and Levi, and love on Rebecca and Shiloh. The kids have also been able to help around the base. It has been so great for them to get to serve in the ministry that God has called our family to.
This summer we will be going on the Canada missions trip. It is a very special team, consisting of only former team members, who are interested in leadership. The teens will be serving during Boot Camp at the Florida base. They will get to help in different positions that interest them. After Boot Camp is over, we will fly to Canada where the team will be doing renovations at the Teen Missions In Canada base.
Since this is our first year, Justin will be going as a backup team leader, and the kids and I will be going as family members. We feel this is important, so we can experience and learn as much as we can, without being in charge of an entire team. Because I am going as a family member, I will not have any concrete duties. I will be able to pour into our children when they need me, and also pour into the teens and projects when I can.
We feel that God has called us to this ministry as a family, and we want to serve Him as such. We will need to raise $5,200.00 in order to go. We are raising children that already have a heart for missions—they are missionaries in themselves, and are excited for this summer.
If 100 people could partner with us and send in a one time gift of $52, that would cover our costs, and we could serve the Lord together as a family this summer! Let us know if you feel the Lord calling you to join us in this.
Continue to pray for us as we settle into life in sunny Florida!! We are so thankful for you. We have such peace living here, and know that this is exactly where God wants us to be. You make this possible!!
“I thank my God upon every remembrance of you.” Philippians 1:3
