God continues to provide for us as our intended departure date (in mid-October) approaches!  As of now, our monthly support needs have dropped down to just $650 before our monthly expenses are completely covered!  It has been a long journey, but suddenly the end (of fund raising at least) seems very near.

Looking back at things to this point it is funny to see the roles we each play in God’s great redemptive mission. This weekend we have seen people partner with God by baking cookies and cupcakes, they have sorted clothes for a fund-raising garage sale, they have prayed, they have made signs and they have committed to support us financially.  We have had people apologize for how little their contribution was–for amounts ranging from $25 to $100 to $200.

The bottom line is this: God is using us and God can use you.  Not everyone can go, not everyone can give, but God has built his body in such a way that everyone can participate.  What great and humbling news!
