Off to Nicaragua

Hello Friends!

Sunday morning we joined the wonderful people at High Bridge Union Church for their Sunday morning service. We gave a mission's update on our work in Mexico and enjoyed our time fellowshipping with the poeple of the church. Without support from churches like High Bridge Union we would not be able to minister in Mexico.

We are currently preparing to go to Nicaragua early Wednesday morning. If you've read our newsletter then you know that we are going to help lead a team with GO. We will be involved in VBS, construction, and a pastors' conference. Josh is finishing up several sermons and a seminar that he will be giving on church planting. As we wait for Wednesday to come around we are getting excited about using our Spanish and serving in a new part of the world. Would you please join us in prayer for our trip? The dates are March 16-27.

Pray for:
-A safe and healthy trip
-Effective communication
-Patience and kindness
-A smooth and productive time

Sharing, Sharing, Sharing

In these days we have had the privelege of sharing our story with various groups of people. We've made it to Berea a few times and Sunday we shared at our home church which was a gift in itself. For us it is important to be able to share with those who pray for us and give to our ministry because we desire for our support team to be informed. Many people from the Wilmore Free Methodist church support us and therefore having the opportunity to tell them about our first two years on the field and our future ministry was very special. After the service we had a cookie reception with homeade cookies by Josh's mom and by Jennifer. It was a wonderful time of sharing and catching up with our church family.

Last night we went back to Berea and shared with a Bible study from Berea United Methodist. We appreciate the Ramsay's dearly. They are the kind couple who have invited us to their house several times and invited us to share with their Bible study last night. We talked about missions, what we did on the field, and church planting. They had been studying the churches of Revelation so our talk on church planting tied into their study.

Sadly we don't have any pictures from our recent adventures because either our battery has been dead or we have been so busy that we have forgotten to take them. We apologize and will try to do better next time.

Ways you can pray:

-For our speaking engagement this Sunday at High Bridge Union Church
-Our trip to Nicaragua March 16-27th
-Our preparations for the trip to Nicaragua, Josh is preaching several times and teaching a seminar on church planting
-That we would get the monthly financial support we need before May 25th
-That we can see as many of our supporters as possible in these weeks.

This Sunday!

If you live in the Wilmore or Lexington area please come see us this Sunday at 6pm at the Wilmore Free Methodist Church. We will be speaking in the evening service and there will be a homeade cookie and coffee reception following the service so that we can chat a little more with those who attend. Also we will have a sign-up sheet if you would like to make a one-on-one appointment with us to hear more about our past two years and what our plans are for the future. Please join us!
