The boys are ready for chilly weather in these hats!

An excerpt from the newsletter I am sending out tonight:

The day we have been waiting and praying for is finally drawing near!

In just over a week, our family will be on Polish soil. In some ways it feels like the culmination of two and a half years’ work, but really, it is just the beginning. . .

We are filled with anticipation, knowing that the Lord has awesome things in store for the year; that all of this has come about in HIS time, not our own.

We look forward to reaching out to the children and youth of Warsaw - sharing the good news of Jesus with them in a way that is engaging, fun, and REAL! We plan to assist with VBS and outreaches during the summer, and to lend a hand at a recently donated piece of property that will become a campground filled with kids hungry for the Truth.

There are many exciting things happening in Warsaw and we want to thank YOU for being a part!

Open up before God, keep nothing back: he’ll do whatever needs to be done.

-- Psalm 37:5 {the Message}

Moving Forward!

We have financial clearance! (That means we have "raised" enough funds). This week we should be getting our visa/travel clearance and then we will be able to purchase tickets! One step at a time. . . whether baby steps or giant leaps. . . we are grateful.
