To Everything There Is A Season


It is with joy and sadness that I write this blog.
  

My Knight In Shining Armor and I have for over a year felt the tug of the Lord on our hearts. He has been asking us if we were ready to move on. We have been willing and waiting on His answer as to the timing.  We feel now is the right time.
  It’s hard to say how thankful we are to each one of you who supported us in prayer, friendship and financially over these 12 years. How can we express that in words, but we are so thankful for each one of you. It would not have been possible to do this without your kindness, and love.
It will be hard to leave GFA, and all our friends here.  Yet we are excited to see what adventures The Lord has for our future. 
Stepping out in faith is never easy, and we take this step with much prayer behind it.


My Knight in Shining Armor has been offered a position with Hope for the Heart. You can find out more at www.hopefortheheart.org.  This is a paid position and we will no longer need to fund raise.  If you choose to, you can continue to give for up to 3 months after June, 2015. Our staff account will still be active and any giving will be applied toward our severance. 

It has been a long journey with GFA, I think back to the brutal winter of 2003 in Upstate NY, we were packing up the truck in winter coats in May!  Sweet Potato was only 3 years old! Now 12 years  later she turns 16 this June.  How our time here has flown, so many changes to the ministry.  I recall praying for what to do about street children that first year here and now we have Bridge of Hope Centers. We now dig wells, supply villages with Bio Sand Water filters, teach women to read, and to sew. We now give gifts of animals and sewing machines. So much has been added to our ministry to reach those who need Christ. I look back and smile. 

 We are currently looking for a house closer to the DFW area; please pray for us in the transition time. As our campus housing is up in early July and we won't be able to even think of closing on a house until August.  So, it's pack-up, store our stuff and live an adventure for the next few months.

Here is a walk down memory lane in photos...
