The LORD is Good!

Oh, where to begin!? I have been praying for this day...

Our family has the opportunity to spend this summer in Peterhead, Scotland investigating first-hand if God is calling us to work in Peterhead when JR finishes his MDiv, as well as fulfilling both of JR's practicum requirements.

This is the answer to a prayer I have been praying for 15 years.

We are in the process of raising $18,000 by May 1. (Yes, you read that right.) The UK is expensive. :( But money is nothing to the Lord. So we are confident that He will provide what we need.

The UK is not allowing people who are traveling through their borders to enter if they express that they intend to work with a church. Because of that, the Peterhead church of Christ is getting re-zoned as a benevolence organization. Pray that the paperwork on that is taken care of in time as well.

JR and I have set up a blog about what we are doing to prepare for Scotland. This blog will also be a place where you can find out about the work we will be doing, as well as get up dates while we are on the field.

Please add this new blog to whatever blog-reader you prefer so that you are aware of when we up-date it.

We are excited about this opportunity and cannot wait to see what the Lord has in store!

Please prayerfully consider joining with us in this endeavor through prayer and support.

Praise the Lord for His Faithfulness!!
JR, Daisha, Gideon, & Naomi

Wow....that's awesome! I am definitely praying for you and so glad that $18,000 is nothing to our God!

Okay, the selfish person in me has to admit...my first thought was, "Oh no! Who will take our pictures?!" I know...TERRIBLE!

Then, my thoughts came around, and I just had to praise God for His faithfulness in leading your family like this!! He has such special things in store for your beautiful family--I have NO DOUBT!

Deborah, did you ever consider having a group from your church head over to Peterhead for some mission experience? Your family could come and I'd take your photos in Scotland. :) Castles and Lighthouses rock!

And this trip will be able to answer the questions we have about moving there long-term. That decision isn't finalized on our end yet. ;)
