Friends, we have some BIG NEWS...
... we are expecting a baby!
While the timing is a little surprising, we are confident of a few things:
- God has called us to South Africa.
- God has blessed us with life in his perfect timing.
- We can trust God to allow both of these exciting realities to exist together.
We will continue with our plan of moving in January and will welcome our first child in South Africa in late March. We are thankful that South Africa has excellent health care!
Progress Report: Preparing for the big move!
These days we find ourselves very busy working full-time and preparing the logistical details for the move.
After receiving feedback from missionaries on the ground, and adding the costs for the baby, we have had to increase our budget to a total of $105,000 for two years. Our monthly living needs are $2,500. You can take a look at our detailed budget here.
We are incredibly grateful for your generous giving! So far, God has provided 15% of our total needs, and 25% of our monthly living needs have been pledged. We ask for your continued support and prayer, so that we can leave in January with 100% of our needs met. Will you pray about joining us? You can do so by clicking here.
We are excited about participating in God’s Kingdom advancing in South Africa! Together, we will see amazing things happen in the name of Jesus.
Love, Jack and Loren
