Today is two months from our launch date for Malawi! Over the past few weeks, the reality of our leaving to go and help train Malawian pastors has become more and more real. We have purchased tickets to leave from Los Angeles on June 11th, and we will (Lord-willing) arrive in Lilongwe, Malawi on June 13th.
We know that it is God’s revealed will that men should be trained for the ministry (2 Timothy 2:2), and we know that it is God’s will that these men should accurately handle all His word including the Old Testament, originally written in Hebrew (2 Timothy 2:15, 3:16-17). The Body of the Church has a need and he has, by His grace, given us an opportunity to fill it. We know that it is God’s revealed will that Christians are to use the gifts given to them by God for the purpose of building up the Church (1 Peter 4:10-11). We know that apart from Jesus we can do nothing (John 15:5). We know that the Great Commission must be gospel partnership between senders and goers. Therefore, we go in faith, trusting that this endeavor is completely in line with God’s revealed will and trusting that God is able to supply the needs to go in His timing and in His way for His glory. It is with this faith in God and His work and His glory that we have gone ahead and bought our tickets and continue to press forward to go to Malawi.
We are so grateful to those of you who have been partnering with us by prayer and by pledging to give! We are grateful for our church, Grace Community Church and their sending agency, Grace Ministries International (GMI) for sending us out.

Thank you for your support and encouragement! It is so encouraging to hear how many people are praying for us (we need it!) and to have already received pledges for financial support! To God alone be the glory!
