In June of 2012 our family joined the greater World Mission Prayer League family when the Directorate invited us to become Missionary Candidates. Yesterday, we had the privilege of appearing before the WMPL Home Council and were officially invited to join them, no longer as “candidates,” but as full time Missionaries, currently assigned to the home office, with the intent that we will together keep eyes and ears open as we discern whether God will keep us in this spot or call us overseas or to some other field in the future.
We have been richly blessed and challenged by this community of praying Believers over the last year and a half. We invite you to join with us in prayer as we offer thanks and praise to God for the blessing of serving Him in this way! We are so thankful God has put us in this place at this time, and we’re excited to see God’s vision for our service to Him unfold in the future.
Specifically, Joshua is serving full time in the office as Media Coordinator, working with everything from website reconstruction, to database management, to social media. Please pray for him as he works toward clear and effective communication of the Gospel, utilizing today’s ever-changing technology.
I continue to spend most of my time mothering and caring for our family, and it is a joy. We also look forward to the birth of our second child–due tomorrow!!! I am also excited to have been invited to join the WMPL Directorate this past spring. This board meets monthly and our tasks include prayer and discernment over the distribution of grants, praying for potential ministry fields and personnel, personnel interviews, and the like. Participation on this board has been a blessing, a privilege, to see how God is acting in the many countries where He has placed WMPL workers. Please pray that the Holy Spirit is active as the Directorate meets; may each decision we make come only after prayerful discernment and clear direction and prompting from the Lord.
Thank you sincerely for the many prayers we know you have already spoken on our behalf. Your financial and emotional support have been significant blessings as well! We would like to continue to lift you up in prayer in turn. Please let us know of any prayer or praise you’d like us to offer up on your behalf! It’s a pleasure to serve the Lord alongside you!
In Christ’s love,
Congratulations, and God’s blessings to you.
Congratulations, what exciting times!
