Another Huge Step!

As you probably know by now, coming to Memphis was a HUGE step for us. Before our move, we hadn’t been the most obedient to God when it came to making decisions that were extremely impactful. A step out of our comfort zone allowed us to feel something that is refreshing and new to us… the feeling of fulfillment. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that our move was the right one and God has honored it big time. We have had the chance to experience him in such a big way since we’ve been here and our vision for ministry has grown with each day.

While we are preparing to walk into the holiday season, we are getting ready to take another huge step. When we moved, we left a 3 bedroom house with 5 months left on the lease, two full time jobs with good salaries and the comfort of our own space. We have spent the last 4 months housed with family in a town an hour away, while we raise support and pray for God to show financial provision in our lives. We are happy to share with you all that God has provided an opportunity to move into an apartment at the end of this year that is affordable for us. Although I will still be raising support, we are happy for the opportunity to be closer to the city of Memphis. This doesn’t just mean a shorter commute to church but more of an opportunity to love and serve those who live in the city… more dinners with young believers, outreach in the city, getting to know new neighbors and chances to preach the gospel.

We are excited to be Memphians in the next month or so and we pray that we will be able to make the most valuable impact on the city that the Spirit allows. We survive off of faith in God, prayer and your willingness to support us. Thank you for all you have done so far and all that you may be moved to do in the months to come.
