The month of July ('17) we were blessed to spend 3 weeks at One Mission Society headquarters participating in our CROSS Training.  We were enamored with droves of subjects that quite possibly could have taken the entire summer to learn.
Cross Cultural training; spiritually, socially, politically, and so on were taught. We were instructed on the security factors and how to be prepared for possible persecution and possible death. REAL STUFF!

"Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil for You are with me..." Ps. 23:4

The COST was feeling heavier...but there was something that far out-weighed it all:
It is the thrust we feel as we continue walking this path towards Mozambique. How can we not go? First, because our Loving Father asked us and secondly, the Love we have to give to all the boys, girls, men and woman there!


God authorized and commanded me to commission you: Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life,..." Matt. 28:19 

To disciple future Pastors, plus  teach ones already who are pastoring a church. We also will help strengthen, encourage and affirm our missionaries as well.  

Most of Mozambique is children, there is also a great number of the millennial age as well. We know God is taking us to them to be a spiritual mom and dad. As well as a mentor, teacher and friend. 

All of this is our FOCUS! We presently are at the last mile stage. That means a lot of packing, planning, travelling and goodbyes. Our days are FULL! 

Today, I sat in my chair as I was drinking my tea. I just had put down a book I was reading on prayer. I stared outside dazing at the blue sky. I found myself whispering the Name of Jesus; after a few minutes my heart was lifted. I felt so connected with my Jesus; I felt His amazing peace and strength. The nerves were settled down and my vision was plain. JESUS...He is my vision - and because of that; we all are going forth to take Him to the unloved, the poor, the hurting, the wore down and tired!

Revelation 4:2 "At once I was in the Spirit, and behold, a throne stood in heaven, with one seated on the throne."

After a camp meeting missions service this weekend, we will be driving across the country to California. We are bringing our son's car; who is in the Navy, to him. We are praying his car runs smoothly. As we are there we will be ministering at a church as well and visiting family and friends. 

Then we will see our son for a couple days (we are hoping-praying for 'leave-time'). I will hug his neck, kiss him on the cheek, pray with him and walk away. One of the hardest things in my life I will do! I ask for you to pray for us all!
(1) That we get to see him.  
(2) That God will give our entire family His strength and peace when we say goodbye. 
(3) That God will keep my son safe; especially if war does break out. 

Meanwhile, we go to WAR in Prayer! And we put on God's Armor to work and live for Him!
We go with humility, full of love and anticipation to be:

Poured Out To The Mozambican People & Our Missionaries!
"Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all." Phil 2:7

Thank you all for your prayers, and encouragement! Please don't stop! We will always need it! And I promise; we pray for you as well!
Have you started yet to support us? If not; just click here and come with us to Africa as we are connected in this way. Every dollar gets us closer to completing the CALL God has given!

We love you all!
