Prayer Letter – February 2019

Dear Friends,

With thankful heart I praise God for the things He did this past year and the beginning of this year.

Highlights for 2018 are seeing God increase my support 16%, receiving $7,000 for a translation / printing project, attending my first Biblical counseling conference, learning more about deaf church planting and deaf ministry philosophy (during SWMI’s Focus Seminar), and attending a discipleship training retreat. I also returned to Romania to reconnect with the church I plan to serve and to attend the Spiritual Leadership Conference of Europe.

In January, I had the opportunity to present ministry in three churches in California, attend three days of Biblical counseling lectures, spend five days visiting with and learning from a Christian counselor, and visit one Christian college (where I set up my missions display and talked with college students about missions).

My support is now at 82%. In January I gained another supporting church and another supporting individual! The next couple of months I have meetings in Tennessee, South Carolina, and North Carolina. It is great to be drawing closer to my goal of 100% support! Please continue to pray for wisdom as I travel and speak.

Please pray too for wisdom as I complete legal, medical, and ministry paperwork for my move to Romania. I have thinned down personal possessions, and I am basically down to clothes, books, and ministry materials.  As soon as I reach 100% support, I will purchase a plane ticket to Romania.

Timisoara, the city I will be working in, is one of the largest cities in Romania, but there are several other large cities that need missionaries to the Deaf. I am praying for five people who will give their lives to reach this unique people group. Already I know of one person who is preparing to go to Romania to reach the deaf for Christ and another who is considering this field. I’m excited to see who else the Lord will call into this harvest field!

Praise: God recently provided the church in Timisoara, Romania, with funds to purchase property next to the church. We now have more room to expand!

Thank you for your prayers and support!
