It’s time to “Go”!!

Well…we did it!  We finally were able to break the silence that we have been keeping under wraps for the last few months.

During a special message at our home church on Sunday, June 6, we had the opportunity to tell everyone that we are leaving for the field in December!!

Gene was given the honor of co-preaching with our Lead Minister, Brian Gorman, and presented our mission & vision through this message with our congregation.  It was so neat to hear them share God’s word with us, discuss the gospel, missions and our heart for the people of Austria… If you would like to hear the message, check out www.kenoshafcc.com, click on Sermons and scroll down to June 6 ( I was very proud of him…he did an amazing job!).

Just to backtrack…At the beginning of 2010, we sat down, evaluated everything up to that point, prayed and made the decision that it was time for us to go!  There has been and still is this compelling need to serve Him in the mission field.  We felt God’s peace in our hearts as we prayed.  We told our accountability partners about our plans and they agreed that, yes, it IS time for us to go.  We got our support team together and started laying out a plan for the rest of this year.  We have had numerous meetings with our Missions Team, Ministers, Mission Support Team as well as phone conversations with our KMUSA Director, Rob.  There is a really neat plan for our first year in the field and those who work in the Zentrale office in Wuestenrot are really looking forward to us coming to start our ministry!

At this present time, we have raised all of our start-up costs and have more than 60+% of our monthly support pledged or coming into our KM account.  We would love to be sent off with 100% of our monthly support needs by the time we go.  If you would like more information about how to become a financial partner with us, please contact us at geneandamy@gmail.com or go to www.calledtopurpose.com and click on Partnership for different options.

We are really excited about how the Lord is moving our ministry plans along and opening doors for us to share our mission with new people…can’t believe that it is almost mid-June!  We’ll be putting out more update posts as we start our countdown so you can keep up with what is going on.

Be on the lookout for our newsletter (it should be out in the next few weeks), we’ll have lots of information to share!  Please keep our family and mission in prayer…time is going by so quickly and we have so much left to do before we go!

We are so blessed to have you stand with us in this journey…thank you.
