Matt...please keep praying for him while he continues to work and study in England. He's having a great time and making lots of progress, but is understandably missing his girls. We've never done more than 2 weeks apart and aren't really enjoying that part. He continues to study and meet with his advisor and others during the day, and will travel this weekend to Wales to speak in a church there. We're so thankful for this opportunity...and for your prayers!
The man Matt is doing his doctorate under, Dr. David F.
Junior and students...Yesterday Junior and several other students headed out to a remote part of Haiti that has no church, no disciples, and no known Christians. Their plan is to live there, in a tent, for most of the summer, evangelizing, discipling, and church planting! Months of prayer and preparation behind them, this is the response of their prayers to be missionaries for Christ.
We're really excited about this simple yet great work, and our hearts are with them! Please be praying for them, and also for other students who are taking part in all kinds of different ministry. I've been talking to Juinor every few days and will keep you posted.
Continued transition...Lily has now joined Matt and I in understanding more of our cross-cultural lives. After seeing a few pictures of friends in Haiti yesterday, she's saying, "I want to go back to Haiti now!" A weekend with Aunt Lisa has her begging for more time with Lee...she is anxious to see her cousin Nico on the east coast...she loves grandpa's house...she cried when seeing Poppy on Skype yesterday...
Our lives are so spread out that you're always missing somewhere and someone! Thank you for your prayers for continued transition!
Emmaus...finally, we'd love your prayers for Emmaus Biblical Seminary! There is a LOT to do before the new school year starts, and we are working daily with our friends and staff to be ready. Please pray for His direction for vision casting, new students, courses, etc. Pray for students working to find support for the upcoming school year, for staff working to get things ready for them, and for the mission field of Haiti that staff and students alike are living and working in!
Always grateful for your prayers!!
