Where are the Fords?

January 2018

We are still stateside in Oklahoma, but we are preparing for our move to Spain, which we hope will be very soon. There has been a delay with our Spanish invitations, but we are trusting that God's timing will again be perfect.

Exactly one year ago we found out about two beautiful toddlers that would soon turn our lives upside down. While waiting on the placement process, it seemed at times that it would never happen, but it did in God's perfect timing. This year we find ourselves in a similar spot while waiting on our Spanish invitations. We are frustrated, as it seems like we've been stateside for an eternity, but as we look back we can see God's hand at work and how much He has blessed us through this journey.  

While we are waiting, I, Kirk, have already begun working on projects with IMM, and am planning to participate in the sectional council tour in February. But, we would also like to schedule more services. We are open to windows, full services, small groups, or just meeting over coffee or lunch. As you might expect, since this delay was so unexpected, our calendar is very open. If you'd like to have us, please reply to this e-mail or give us a call at (405) 589-1179.

In Finances?
At this point we feel blessed to be cleared to apply for our visas, but we are still believing to reach full monthly budget before our departure. As of the end of December, we have reached 123% of our cash and 94% of our monthly budget. We only need about $500 in monthly support to be at full budget. (Praise the Lord!) 

If you've been planning to support us monthly, or perhaps are already giving, but haven't made it official, would you please go ahead and make that commitment? The commitment form can be filled out online by clicking here and setting up a recurring gift.

As always, we want to say Thank you, Thank you, Thank you to all those who so faithfully support us!


The kids are continuing to grow and develop daily. They have already changed so much, and are fast leaving babyhood behind. Both have now been cleared by their doctors, and are finishing up speech therapy. We are amazed at how God is at work in their young lives. During December, we were able to spend a lot of time with family, and be refreshed before the next big push. Due to this delay, we will be able to celebrate their first birthdays with us surrounded by family! Since it won't happen again for another four years, we are thankful for that small blessing!

Prayer Requests

  • Pray that our Spanish invitations are issued by the end of January. We have already redone several documents in order to be ready to apply as soon as we receive them, and others will need to be redone in the next few weeks if they are delayed further.
  • Pray for favor as we turn in our documents to the Spanish embassy for our residence visas. (Once we have all the necessary documents with none older than 90 days, then we will apply for the visas at the Spanish embassy.)
  • Pray for the rest of our budget to be pledged before our scheduled departure, now at the end of March.
  • Pray for wisdom and favor as we visit churches during this extended time. May doors open that we can schedule services even with this short notice.
  • Pray for Kirk's migraines to be completely healed. He has had his first round of Botox injections, and the frequency and severity of his headaches have decreased significantly.
