We are excited and nervous about our return in June. We fly out of Yaoundé on May 31st. We will be traveling with our cat - she’ll be one piece of our carry-on luggage. As we look ahead
, we also want to look behind. We started on this journey to Cameroon in 2008. We didn’t have a clue what our lives would be like in full-time overseas ministry. Thank you
for partnering with us through finances, prayer, love, giving us medical advice, keeping us informed, standing beside us and being a listening ear. We’re privileged
to be your hands extended to the people of Cameroon. The Lord has definitely held us up, led us through very difficult times and continues to lead us. We have sensed His leading
to close the door on our Cameroon ministry. This has been a difficult decision. It’s funny how it was actually easier to sell all our belongings and go to Cameroon than it’s been discerning to leave. We will take June - August as rest, vacation, transition and meditation time. We haven’t officially had a vacation in six years. After that time we plan to investigate a Stateside assignment. What does this mean
, practically speaking? It means that we will continue to live on support. We do not receive a salary,
we don’t have a special expense account filled by Wycliffe, we do not have any other means of financial support. We only receive the monies sent into Wycliffe that is noted for us and that's it; both in Cameroon and in the USA. We need your financial support. We need your prayer support. We don’t know what’s next and we’ll continue to communicate with you openly. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us via our cell phones, email or Skype.
“The Lord’s plans stand firm forever; his intentions can never be shaken.” Ps 33:11 (NLV)
“How do you know what will happen tomorrow?...What you ought to say is, ‘If the Lord wants us to, we will live and do this or that.” James 5:14-15 (NLV)
We have been blessed by your wonderful care packages: thank you for them. Please do not send any more care packages to us in Cameroon. We ask that you consider waiting for our return to the USA and help us set up house for our home assignment with gift cards to places like Wal-Mart, Target, etc… We will have many immediate expenses: clothing, shoes, vehicle, staple grocery items, doctor’s appointments, cell phones, traveling and many more.
for the outpouring of furniture and furnishings to help us in our home assignment. We feel incredibly blessed and well set-up - thank you! We will be searching for housing during our home assignment in Pleasant Hill, MO. If you know of a home or duplex in the area, please let us know. We’ll also be looking to purchase a used minivan in good working condition.
