In the Rear View Mirror
IT IS FINISHED! There are absolutely no words to describe how amazing this feels. This letter is being written on the last flight on our way to Iceland. We have completed pre-field ministry, and now the IN-field ministry begins.
We have been preparing for this moment for nearly 5 years. It was in late July of 2018 on our internship in Iceland (while we were still in college) that God confirmed in our lives that Iceland was the field that He was calling us to. Since that trip, we have stayed in nearly constant communication with Patrick Weimer.
Now at the close of deputation, after over 150,000 miles (or more) we are just a few hours away from landing in Iceland. How surreal. As I read through the Bible this year, there is no explanation except that the Lord that we would be reading Deuteronomy 4:5-10.
I would encourage you to take the time to read it. What a perfect challenge to us as we embark on this new, exciting (yet very strange) adventure.
The Road Ahead
There will not be much time left over with all that needs to be accomplished in the next few weeks. Getting established in the country finalizing my residence permit, moving in, getting a new SIM card, and bank accounts, and the plethora of activities that will ensue this month, we need your prayers now more than ever.
I strongly believe God has a great work for us to accomplish in Iceland, but we cannot do it alone. Please pray that we would be able to get adjusted to the new time zone, and culture quickly, and that we would be a great asset to the current ministry which God is already blessing.
