Upcoming Events

Dear Church Family,

I wanted to give you a quick update on how everything is going for preparing to go to Japan. I had been working towards going to a training and had missed the financial deadline. Well, God has worked everything out. I found out mid-October that very few of the missionaries with TEAM, who were working towards that 60% financial goal like I was, made the deadline of September 30th. Since there would have been so few people at the training, TEAM has decided to postpone the training until February. This is a blessing for me! I am now at 63% therefore guaranteed a spot at the February training! This only changes my timeline for departing a little. I will continue to work towards being 100% financially funded by February, then, I can simply go to the training as the last item on my “check list” and leave for Japan mid to late February. God is good! And church family you are good! Your encouragement and prayers have been a great joy and comfort for me. Thank you!
