This thanksgiving day we have so much to be thankful for as we reflect over the past year or so. God blessed us with a nice house and a faithful car while on stateside. We also found a wonderful church home and made several new friends. We were given opportunities to minister to Deaf families and individuals in various ways and our girls have been doing well in their schooling. We have all been in good health and have enjoyed spending time with family and friends.
We have also experienced so many answers to prayer as we partnered with Deaf Bible Society, sold our house, raised the funds needed for plane tickets and travel, and so much more! Each time that we started to get discouraged or doubt, God reminded us that He has called us and He will provide what we need in HIS timing. His timing has been a lot different than what we would have planned- but His timing is perfect!
Finally the time has come for us to move to Ukraine! On Tuesday, the 22nd, we closed on our house and then as we were driving away from the title company, we received the call that our visas have been approved! We should have them in hand on November 30, so we are planning to fly to Ukraine sometime between December 7 and 14 (depending on the best deals we can find for flights).
And we are so thankful to you, our pray partners and supporters, for faithfully praying for us and generously giving. You are truly a blessing from God to our family and we appreciate your partnership, friendship, and faithfulness. God bless you all! Happy Thanksgiving!
