First, thank you to everyone that’s checked out the new site and liked the Facebook page. We are in the early stages of rolling out our plan for fundraising and building a team of people who will be committed to praying for us daily as we take on this impossible task.
I just wanted to give this quick update to say thank you, to let you know what is next, and to let you know how you can be praying for us over the weekend (If you’re in the USA and you’re in a place with daylight savings, clocks go back this weekend).
For right now, we just know that we will be in the United Kingdom. Over the coming weeks, we hope to be in touch with the churches that may be hosting us. We are excited and eager to find out where it is that God will have us serve. This will enable us to have specific people in mind to pray for as well as help us figure out what our financial goal will be.
As of now, we are working on a budget but you can still give. Your donations are tax deductible and will go toward furthering the Kingdom of God to the ends of the earth. We truly believe that we are called to do this work, but we cannot do it without your support.
Wait, so what are you doing?
For two years, I (Dan) will be serving full-time in a church while doing theological studies part-time. During those two years, I will be gaining important ministry experience in a culture that has long-forgotten the good news of the gospel. Tracy plans on continuing her work of raising our children full-time while also serving the church’s children and young mothers and wives. Three of our four children will be going to school and getting accents.
Our first requests for prayer are regarding our hearts and the church we will be calling home for the first two years of our time on mission in the UK.
1. Pray that we would be diligent in seeking God’s will and timing for us in this, that we would trust that He has indeed called us to do this work and that, ultimately, it will be only happen by His grace.
2. Be in prayer for the church we will be serving in. Pray that it is a mutually good fit, that they will help us learn as much as we can over the course of two years of ministry partnership and that we will be able to fill in needs that they currently have.
3. Pray that above everything, God would be glorified in this work and that more people would come to know Christ as their only hope and salvation.
