April 17th Update

Hi all!  We are in the midst of of fundraising, which means traveling, researching prices, and trying to unload more items that we can’t take with us.  Here is the past fortnight in bullet points:

  • We traveled to Illinois to visit friends and see many of you at 2 informational meetings.  We had a great time!  So many of you, both new friends and old, came to see us and joined our support team.  ‘Thankful’ does not even begin to describe it!
  • We crossed the 25% mark in our fundraising efforts.  Again, thankful.
  • We purchased tickets for our flight to Sofia!  We will be departing July 8th, arriving July 9th.  The 5 day delay meant a savings on our tickets, plus an extra bag per person for free (British Airways gives free luggage to missionaries!  They rock, in my book).

More updates to come soon.  I’ll update as soon as I find time to exhale.  :)

Thanks for the prayers and support.  It means a lot!

Coming to a City Near You (Maybe)

We'd love for you to come to one of our upcoming informational meetings!  As much as we would enjoy the chance to see each of you individually before we leave, our time is limited and we really want to be able to see as many of you as possible, hand you a prayer card, give you a hug, and talk to you about how God is leading you to partner with us in this new ministry.

We are planning meetings in several places, including Peoria (IL), Avon (IL), Attica (IN) and Crawfordsville (IN).  Some of the dates are already send and are listed below.  Others are still in the planning stages and will be announced soon.  Here are the dates and locations:

We’ve Moved!

No, we're not in Sofia yet, but we have moved out of our now sold home, and moved into temporary quarters.  God provided a wonderful place for us to stay, and it has already been a great blessing for us.  Our friends who own the house we are in have kids who are great friends with Milena and Elijah, and much fun has been had by all.


Here are a few shots of our new place.  We're still getting settled, and working through several piles of things that must still be sold. Three months and counting till the big day!
