The past three weeks, we have been traveling with the privilege of sharing in Great Falls and Bozeman MT, Cody, WY and this weekend Missoula, MT. These visits have been tremendous blessings to us and our ministry and we have been able to share what God is doing! We also spent a wonderful, encouraging week in Colorado Springs at the Envision State-side gathering.
We write you today in great need of your prayer support. We are experiencing many difficult situations and losses as a family and as a team.
Tess, who has devoted the past three months of her life to serve our family as a nanny, will be leaving this coming Wednesday to return home. She will be greatly missed by our family. She quickly worked her way into our hearts and lives and her absence will be felt deeply!
A dear friend, whom we were able to stay with several days while in Montana, has been struggling with his health. He has been a Papa to our kids and a close friend to Richard and I. It was very difficult to see him in this condition and continues to be difficult being so far away. Please pray for him and also his family.
Also, the Schuenke family is going through a very difficult time right now. A support network is in place through the Alliance/Envision and their sending church, Appleton, is already actively involved in caring and helping. We don’t have all the answers to this, but we do know the best thing we can do for their family is be praying and patient.
We are in such great need as a family for strength, comfort, and discernment in each of these circumstances. Our team is also in great need of unity, strength, and wisdom. Thank you so much for entering into God’s presence on our behalf.
