Summer 2017 plans

To quote Forrest Gump…

“Life is like a box of chocolates.
You never know what you’re going to get.”

I am on a theological kick and discovering a lot of new information. Perhaps a book will come out of it!? I would appreciate your prayers about that! My job as church relations director for Mephibosheth is slowly coming along.  I am also becoming a gym rat spending hours at the YMCA. In early June, Kelly went to Atlanta to be with her family as they gathered to support her Uncle who has been dealing with a serious cancer diagnosis. It meant a lot for her to join in this time with them all.  She continues to take care of me, helping a family whose oldest son lives on the Autism Spectrum and is going into her 6th year of selling awesome children’s books with Usborne Books & More.

In the middle of July, we are looking forward to making our way up to Fort Collins to participate in CRU 17, aka CRU’s US summer staff training conference. Kelly’s parents have been on staff with CRU since she was a year old, so this conference holds a lot of good memories for her.  It will also be a great opportunity for us to network with like-minded people while hearing from some awesome speakers, like Eugene Cho (author & pastor) and Steve Douglas (president of CRU). We would covet your prayers for both of us to have open hearts and minds as we go through the week of the conference.

Also to make this trip possible, we need your financial help.

CRU has generously discounted fees for us, but we still need a total of $2500 so we can pay for additional conference fees as well as the cost, room and board and other incidentals while at the conference.

Would you prayerfully consider helping us cover that amount with a suggested donation of $50, $100, or $200? Please know that regardless of the amount you give, it is greatly appreciated.
