Appeal for Prayer

After Steph's furlough in '08, our wedding in '09, transitioning out of ministry in Zambia once we were married, spending time getting to know our families and researching different missions opportunities, we finally felt like God was moving us in a direction. After visiting Kansas City late September, we decided we would apply and 'wait and see' what God would do. Mr. Motorcycle went to Well and Water school in October and at the end of that time we found out we were expecting. So, it's been a very busy year!

A few weeks ago we were invited to find out more about this organization through their Orientation in January and we accepted. We will be traveling to Kansas City on Sunday, Jan 10, and arriving back home on the 23rd. It will be an intense time of interviews and us both getting to know each other better. Will you pray for us through this time? That they will make a good decision regarding us, that we will make a good decision concerning them, and that Mike and I will be in agreement about how the Lord is leading us? After such a long wait on the Lord we feel excited to be on the brink of knowing- one way or the other- but we know that this is a prime time for the Great Deceiver to cause dissension and to distract us from hearing the Lord leading us.

We want to thank you for your prayers and concern over all these months and we are REALLY looking forward to being able to share with you where the Lord does lead us. We are excited about the work this organization is doing and their strategy for missions, but we want to make sure that we are not thinking in human logic, but allowing the Master Strategist to make Himself known through us... wherever and however that may be.
