                                            Consuming Fire (Hebrews 12:29)

discription

      Why are we seeking your support for prayers and funding? Because we have heard the voice of the Lord say, “Feed my sheep.” Why at this time in our lives has Jesus said to us, “Go?" Because He hasn’t finished with us yet. He sent Moses back to Egypt. A journey I don’t believe Moses had planned on. Moses had fled from Egypt earlier and lived in a foreign land for a number of years safely, married and raised a family. Then God sent him back to Egypt with his brother to free His people.

       God is described as a ‘consuming fire’ who would go before the children of Israel and lead them to the promised land. We are trusting in that same ‘consuming fire’ to lead us in His plan for our lives. We have led a private life working and serving people through ministries such as church praise and worship, and as a presenting team for seven years on Marriage Encounter Weekends. Then we worked as elementary school teachers in California, Alaska, and Florida. But all of these endeavors were well within our comfort zone. In all this, we can see the Lord preparing us for what He had for us next. Pam has always had a heart for missions, and when our son and his family decided to become missionaries and moved to Africa we were very supportive. But the Lord has worked in both our hearts so they are both in line towards missions.

        We have always worked well together from our first partnering in a convalescent home in Queens, New York, then as a presenting team couple on Marriage Encounter Weekends. We supported each other when Pam worked for years in hospital social work and I worked in a hospital crisis intervention center, followed by teaching in different districts in California, and then for 10 years in back to back classrooms in Nikiski, Alaska where we developed performing arts programs in literature, art, and music.

         The very happiest years in our marriage was when we worked side by side as a couple. And now we believe we have been called by God again to serve in missions as a couple and be led by His 'consuming fire'. Let us explain. Our son, his wife and their family (three boys) have been serving as missionaries in Mozambique, Africa for the past 4 years. This year they came to Tyler, Texas for Family Discipleship Training School through Youth with A Mission (YWAM). We were blessed to visit them there in Tyler and attend some of their classes and worship services together. It was during these visits that Jesus touched us, and brought our hearts in alignment to minister and serve the needy and the hungry as full-time YWAM missionaries. Youth With A Mission (YWAM) is an international missions organization dedicated to training people from many cultures to know God and make Him known to the nations. God has given us a longing to serve humanity. Although we are completely open to His leading we both have a passion for helping to prevent human trafficking and assist in healing the grieving hearts among the people He loves. 

       Here is the miracle part, classes begin in January 2020, that’s only 3 months from now which is a short window of time. So we need prayer and help with fundraising in order to make this possible. The Tuition for Crossroads Discipleship Training School is $7500 for both of us, this cost includes lodging, food, and classes for those 3 months. The two-month outreach to the nations, following classes, costs between $1500 to $3500 each depending on the location. This cost includes airline tickets, lodging, and meals. So the total cost for the YWAM DTS and outreach would be about $15,000. We are asking you to consider partnering with us in prayer and/or financial support. To help us answer God’s call you can donate to our class tuition phase and/or to the outreach phase. Here’s how you can help us reach the needy and the hungry with the love of Jesus Christ.

Time passes so quickly in life it seems these days. Hard to believe it is already November. We are so grateful for those who have donated and are praying for us as we are called to embark in faith into missions with YWAM. We are excited and thankful to be at 20% of our needed goal of $15,000 for the 3 month discipleship school followed by outreach ministry and service. We recently heard a pastor from Uganda speak who reopened our eyes to the miracles that can happen by just small donations. When the pastor was 12 he was provided a bible from a missionary in his own language. Today, that same man who was an orphan disciples 600 pastors in Uganda, overseas an orphanage, and provides medical services to villages. This work grew from the seed of one bible given to one person by one missionary by people thousands of miles away who never met or knew him. This is an example of God’s principle of multiplication. We are asking you to pray to partner with us and be part of God’s principle of multiplication.
