June 2012 Update
Posted by frank on June 8, 2012
June already? With over half of 2012 in the past, it’s been quite a year to say the least! Another international move (and all that entails), coupled with busy work schedules has us holding on to the rails as life speeds forward with or without us! Here’s an update on what’s new with us:
We’ve been staring at this on our calendar day after day so it brings us much joy to report that we have officially purchased our flight tickets to Ireland! Frank is set to leave a week before Bekah on August 27th. It immediately became so much more real to us when that confirmation email hit our inboxes. There’s still tons to do but this is an item to check off of our to-do list.
Adventures Launch Training
Last month we spent a week in Gainesville attending a training conference for long-term mission applicants with Adventures in Missions. It was a great week filled with valuable knowledge and shared lessons from several experienced long-term missionaries that are a part of the Adventures staff. We also made lots of new friends who God has called literally all over the world!
We’ve done some updating to the content of the website to give you a better picture of not only what we’ll be doing in Ireland, but also easy ways to keep up what’s new in lives and ministry in the future.
NEW IRELAND PAGE
We created a page dedicated solely to Ireland. On it, you will find a little bit of our story and what led us to move to Ireland, the work we’ll be doing there, and ways you can contribute (including ways you can plan your own short-term mission trip to work with us in Ireland!).
FINANCIAL SUPPORT PAGE
We also updated our support page with a bunch of new information about why we raise support, what organization we work with (and why), and how you can give financially to our ministry.
Summer weekends and evenings around our house have been filled with fun at the pool, fishing at dusk by the pond, dinners on our porch, and relaxing in the hammocks. Here’s some pictures from the summer shenanigans:
As of June 2012, our ministry is 50% supported.
Ways you can financially support our ministry work in Ireland:
Monthly giving is the foundation of our support. Monthly gifts allow us to budget and plan ahead for ministry costs like gas, supplies, equipment, games, paper, and more. From $10 to $1,000, every penny is received gratefully. Click here to start giving monthly.
You can give a one time gift to our ministry here. One-time gifts are perfect for larger expenditures!
GRAPHIC DESIGN & SOCIAL MEDIA MANAGEMENT SERVICES
We run a branding and creative agency named D2L Studios. By hiring us to build your company’s online presence and brand, you help us remain on the mission field. Stop by and check out some of our work or get in touch with us to see how we can help you.
