“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” – Eph 2:10
Hello friends and family!
It’s been about a month since we got married, and time is flying. The Lord has been gracious to us and we are excited for the work He has for us, together. To get you up to speed, we are living in Portland and both working full time; Jesse is at the cabinet shop and Brittany is an occupational therapist at a pediatric clinic. Jesse is also applying to do a ThM degree at Western Seminary part time instead of moving to England for full time study. We both feel a lot of peace about this decision and are excited to be surrounded by community we know and love, as well as jump into ministry opportunities that God is putting before us.
So…We are going to Tunisia!
What Are We Doing?
October 13th-21st we will be heading to the North African country of Tunisia with two other couples and our pastor from The Well, where we go to church. We will be going to support our friend who has been living and doing work there the last couple years.
At The Well we have something called “Rope Teams.” These are groups of people who are responsible for keeping a worker connected to their home church. This is so that the church stays informed as far as how to pray for and support the worker, but also so that he or she knows, feels, and experiences the powerful connection and support of the body of Christ, the church. Too often churches forget about the workers they send and support. Rope Teams are designed specifically to keep this from happening.
Part of The Well’s commitment to the workers sent from The Well is to make sure there is face to face contact every couple years. So, we are part of a team that has the privilege and opportunity to go visit our friend in Tunisia. We are excited to see her world, and to support, encourage, exhort, and love her.
Another reason why we jumped on this opportunity is because over this last year, God has been stirring our hearts for the Muslim world. Who knows what He has in store for us, but we are excited about the opportunity to experience this together and see where He takes us from there.
What Do We Need?
We need to raise $3,500 and we need lots and lots of prayer. Please consider supporting us financially on this trip, and if you are committed to praying for us, please send us a message and let us know!
How to Support Us in Prayer
Please pray that
1) we would do the work of his kingdom
2) we would trust in his provision
