Come along on the journey too!
I could try to call this our first blog post, but really this is just an introductory. We are glad to be at a point where we are ready to start this blog! We've been asked so many times in seeing and meeting with people if we are going to start a blog, and the answer has always been "yes!" but now you can really believe me. :)
If you're new to what my husband Jamey and I are doing, or have no idea where the picture above is from, or just want a refresh, it might be good to start with some of the page links above listed "About Us" and "Great Commission Ministries". But to put it shortly, the purpose of this blog is for our friends, family, prayer team, and support team to be able to follow us on our journey of living in and serving Christ in Danli, Honduras as international missionaries. We are so excited about this new adventure, and literally can't think of any better way to be starting out our marriage than to be doing what drew us to each other in the first place.
Right now, we are currently raising support and developing our ministry team for GCM full time, as well as working full time. Our lives are certainly very busy, but we know it is getting us to what we are working toward, so we are glad and feel very blessed to be doing it! At the time that I am writing this post, I am so thrilled to be able to say that we are at about 78% of our recurring amount that we need to raise!! We are just floored by this, and so amazed that our percentage has grown so much in such a short time.
I know that is a big piece of awesome information to put in what I said would be an "introductory" post, but I wanted to put it out there just so you all could see how close we are! As much as we would love to already be completely packed and hopping on the next plane out, we are still very thankful and excited about this moment right here. I mean 78% that sure does feel different than say what 30% felt like, and what 55% felt like... this is a new moment that God has us in and we just love it.
So thanks for making your way here, to our (at the moment, very new) blog, and we hope you keep coming back to see what other very new and exciting moments that God is going to bring us to through this and that we promise, we'll be sharing with you.
