One of the biggest challenges we have faced is the fact that we are alone in this ministry work. We know you guys are all praying for us, but I mean on a day-to-day basis. In the last month God has begun to build a team that will help accomplish the vision He is laying on our hearts. ??First, we are in the process of developing a Board of Directors to help with administrative, legal and fundraising aspects in the ministry.
Pray for wisdom as we contact potential board members, and that God will lay a strong conviction to serve on their heart.
Secondly, God recently brought Matt & Molly Swanson into our lives. After much prayer and talking, we (all 4 of us) believe there is a great potential for partnership. They are in the process of packing up their things in Tulsa, OK and hope to move to Guatemala in March 2011. They have three boys: Josiah, Caleb and Noah.
Pray for them as they pack and prepare to come.
Thirdly, Kory Fain, a college student from McGregor Baptist Church in Florida, felt God telling him to take a few months off and come to Guatemala. He will be moving down in February to help us host the many teams coming next year.
Pray for God’s provision and guidance in his life.
Finally, there is a long list of teams signing up to help out next year with the work to be done. We already have 10 teams coming between March & August.
Pray for each of the team leaders and the churches/ministries they represent, may God provide for all of their needs.
Thanks again for your prayers and interest in our ministry.
