"Take care lest you forget the Lord your God by not keeping his commandments and his rules and his statutes, which I command you today, lest, when you have eaten and are full and have built good houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks multiply and your silver and gold is multiplied and all that you have is multiplied, then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the Lord your God...Beware lest you say in your heart, 'My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.' You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day." Deuteronomy 8:11-14, 17-18
That being said, God is providing for us in amazing ways! We have raised half of our up-front costs, $14,000, and other preparations are coming along well. Our biggest need right now is more monthly supporters. We have $325 in monthly support currently pledged, but we need over $2,000! If you plan on supporting us, please remember to send our support card back or fill out the form on this blog as soon as possible.
To those of you who have given support (money, prayer, gifts, time, encouragement), we are so grateful! A move like this is not possible without all of you! God has created his body to be interdependent, and support missions is a beautiful picture of that. We are thankful for each of you :)
We continue to ask for prayer for the sale of our house. This is the biggest obstacle in our getting to Uganda. We feel very strongly that we should be completely out of debt before moving, and our house is the last thing. Please pray with us that God will bring us a buyer before the end of April. In Canon City's housing market this would be a miracle, but as we've seen over and over again, our God is the God of miracles! Thank you for your continued prayers!
