Hi everyone!
Well, Urbana was quite the experience! Thank you all for praying for both of us while we were at Urbana and away from the kids. We definitely appreciate it! Urbana from my (Ali’s) point of view… it was a wonderful and challenging experience all rolled into one. It was fantastic to be able to serve alongside of so many from Pioneers – people that serve on the Mobilization Team, field missionaries who joined us for the week, and others who are part of the greater Orlando team. To be able to watch the mobilizers in action (especially Scott!) was really fun and gave me even more respect for what they do. The opportunities we all had to talk to hundreds of students about reaching the unreached were amazing. I had several really great conversations with some wonderful young people who are just searching for their role in the Great Commission. It was neat to be able to share about our personal experience with Pioneers, but to emphasize the importance of the Kingdom of God being furthered and the unreached reached. I am so thankful to have been part of this stretching experience for a week.
PA, Here We Come!

Scott will be serving at Lancaster Bible College’s missions conference February 15-19, and the kids and I will follow him up to PA on the 17th. Then we will all stay for another week and hopefully visit with a lot of you! If you are nearby and would like to see us, please let us know! We would love to see you too.
 
We will be having an informal dessert social at my parents’ house (520 El Dorado Drive, Red Lion) on Saturday, February 20th at 7pm. Please let us know if you will be joining us!
 
Our evenings are already booked, but if you want to get together for a breakfast, lunch, coffee or hang out time, please let us know! It’s been a year since we’ve been in PA and we would love to see as many of you as we are able to while we are in town.
 
And, Lord willing, we will be making another trip to PA when it’s not so cold outside!! Sometime in summer or fall we are hoping to come up again for another 1-2 weeks. Hopefully the snow won’t interrupt our plans like it did last year… even though Layla is really hoping there is snow on the ground at Grandpa and Grandma’s house!

Matching Gift

We wanted to let you know about an opportunity that is happening right now at Pioneers. A generous donor has given $50,000 as a matching gift incentive, specifically for Orlando Team members. If you have considered joining our support team, please contact us about this opportunity. This opportunity is only available for new supporters or those who have not supported us within the past 24 months.
 
We asked you to be praying for our support a few months ago, and we want to share great praises with you! Even though this was our toughest year with support, God still provided for everything we needed throughout the entire year. Praise Him! And though we have lost a large amount of support in the past few months, God has already provided a fair share of the amount that we need! We are now only $280/month below budget, which is not that bad at all, considering. We praise Him for always providing for us… and helping us to grow in our faith and learning not to worry during these stretching times.

Kids' Corner

Layla turned 4 this past week! It’s hard to believe, as every parents knows, how fast the time goes by. All of a sudden in the last month, she seems to have grown up. She’s such a joy and we adore her. Happy birthday to Layla!
 
Liam is so much fun! He hugs and kisses and cuddles, and then he throws things and yells and bangs – he is definitely a boy! He picked up a fork this week and started using it all the time. He seems to know how to say words, but doesn’t want to use them. And he gives a great “cheese” smile!
A birthday doughnut for Layla!
Our silly Liam!
We pray God continues to bless you, who are reading this, wherever you are, wherever God has you serving Him.
With love,
Scott, Ali, Layla and Liam
