Most of you have known one or both of us for quite sometime...family, school teachers,VBS leaders, church family, childhood friends, college friends, seminary friends, etc. All of you have played an important role in our lives - the Lord has used you to shape us, challenge us, mold us, inspire us, encourage us, and teach us. We have so far to go to become exactly who He has called us to be - but because of you - He has made us into who we are today.
Some of you may be thinking, "I've never even met you", that's okay - He has still used you - HOW? Each and everyone one of you are lifting us up, praying for us - some weekly, some daily, and some hour by hour :) Your prayers are literally what the Lord uses to now shape us, challenge us, mold us, inspire us, encourage us, and teach us.
We may not have the greatest internet at all times for us to adequately communicate this to you - so while we did - we want to say thank you. This past week could have been very different from how it was. It has all gone so smoothly - we know it's not a coincidence. We have every confidence it was because we serve an incredible God who listens to the cries of His people. We beg you to continue - lots of obstacles lay before us with language and culture. Being here - doing this - it is a dream that has come true for both of us...we are in awe and humbled by the faithfulness of our Father - that He would choose to use us in this way.
Your emails, facebook posts, and comments on this blog bring a smile to our faces and encouragement to our hearts. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
