BIG news!

We’ve been working diligently to meet our goal of moving to Nicaragua on June 15th.  Many blessings have been poured out upon us, and we are 83.5% funded for our monthly need.  That’s in less than three months-incredible!  God is so faithful!

One area that we’re lacking is in one time set up costs.  We have had several donations come in for these costs and we have been regularly contributing as well, but we are still short in this area.  With June 15th coming so soon, we’ve been praying asking God to provide for us to leave by this date, or change our hearts so that we are in line with what he would have for us.  We want to arrive in His timing, not ours!

Just last week we were approached by someone who believes in our vision.  The belief is so strong that this anonymous donor has decided to match all one time gifts given through June 5th, dollar for dollar!

We still need to raise $25,000 in order to leave.

For a one time cost financial breakdown, please see the Gifting page.

If you have been considering making a one time donation, this would be a great time to do it!  We are seeking God, trusting that he will confirm his timing to us by the financial support that we raise.

Thank you so much for your generosity.  We have been so blessed by the faithful giving of so many.
