Happy April! We made it through all the traveling in March. Thank you for praying us safely along. We will be here in Charlotte until the 26th, when we will move to Raleigh to be with Kristi's family for 2 weeks. Then we fly out for PNG on May 10th!
Praises to our Father! We are at 100% of our minimum monthly Wycliffe budget. This is amazing, no words:) There are still some who have expressed interest in partnering with us, pray that they too will join our team before we leave.
We are feeling a little overwhelmed with the fact that weeks are turning into days to finish packing, get work permits and visas, go to the rest of our doctors visits, and say all our goodbyes. We honestly don't know how we are going to get it all finished. But our God is so much bigger than our to do list, for that we are thankful :)
The big prayer still remains: the work permits. We can't submit the visas to the embassy until the work permits are approved. Please pray this will happen swiftly (any day now...) and with no complications.
Please pray for our hearts as we walk through this next month. Pray that God will grant us grace for ourselves in our inadequacies. Pray that we see people well, that we are present, and express our deep love for you all as we navigate goodbyes. And especially for the kids as they deal with all these conflicting emotions.
Please pray we would pack the things we need to, and let go of the things we don't.
Thank you for joining us at the foot of the throne.
John and Kristi
PS let us know how we can pray for you this month, we want to do this well:)
