If you follow us on Facebook, it might seem we have been part of an episode of The Amazing Race (or perhaps a
spin-off of Where in the World is Carmen SanDiego). We returned to the United States from Cameroon in December, spent a few weeks in Buffalo for Christmas, and moved to Arkansas where Isaiah was born January 24th. We traveled to Pennsylvania, making stops in Louisville, Baltimore, Reading, Boone, and Nashville, before returning to Little Rock. At the end of April, we moved to Rochester and then immediately visited Boston. In the past few months, we've been extremely blessed to stay in two beautiful mission houses (thanks to Immanuel Baptist and Pearce Memorial!), as well as the welcoming homes of many family members and friends along the way.
|The kids were so excited we fit everything in their car for the move from Little Rock to Rochester that they volunteered to ride in the back, Cameroon style. Poppa Tim supervised.|
Bottom line: we've put a ton of miles on the vehicle we were so generously given, broke our three month old into a life of travel, are now officially World Team itinerant missionaries, and hope move to Cambodia this November. We have shared at nearly 20 churches since we got back, and are currently building partnerships with individuals who will support us over the next few years.
If you would like to be a co-laborer in our ministry (really, His ministry), please contact us! We have three main needs at this point.
|Welcoming Isaiah to our world at Baptist Hospital, Little Rock with our Beckies!|
We need to compile a list of at least 50 people (preferably, 300) who will commit to praying regularly for us. If you'd like to be a part of core prayer group, please let us know.

II. SPIRITUAL PARTNERSHIP
Please visit the websites for Mercy Medical Center and World Team to familiarize yourself with the ministry and our sending agency. Additionally, we
would love to share our journey with you in the newsletters we send every 2-3 months. Please let us know if you'd like to receive these emails.

III. FINANCIAL PARTNERSHIP
There are three ways financial partners can give to our World Team account. If you pay via credit card, the credit card company's charge (usually around 2%) is deducted from the donation. If you send by bank transfer or check, this fee is avoided. We want you to give in the way you are most comfortable, and thought this should be disclosed so you are fully informed.
