Major Update!

It always amazed me how much things can change in just one week!
The Lord has decided it's time to prove to us He'll " up heaven itself to you and pour out blessings beyond your wildest dreams."  Malachi 3:10

We have now been invited to Greater Europe Mission's Candidate Orientation October 29-November 5 in Colorado. We were told that this week has 5 goals:

  • Learn more about Greater Europe Missions
  • Become better acquainted with the staff and they with us
  • The acceptance process will be complete
  • The placement process will be complete or underway
  • Steps to the field will begin

Not only will we be leaving for Dublin at the end of next week, but we now need to prepare for a week's trip at the end of October. I'll be honest in saying we are overwhelmed, but we are also so very joyous!
Here are some new things we ask prayer for:

  1. That this new trip will be funded. We need to cover plane tickets, a rental car, and orientation fees. All this will be approximately $2000, not to mention the week of lost wages Ruel will have by taking off work. Our budget does not allow for any wiggle room even under normal circumstances, so the Lord is really going to have to provide here. 
  2. My health. I've really taken a turn for the worse lately. Please pray for healing. There is nothing Dr's under our insurance company can do, so the Lord will have to be my Physician. 
  3. Calm. There is so much we have to do to get ready for Candidate week. Pray we can get it all done without too much stress.

Thank you for praying for us and join us in this amazing journey the Lord has allowed us to embark upon. You are our brothers and sisters, and we love you!
