Partners in Ministry,
As I write this letter there are about 4 inches of snow on the ground here in New England. Lindsey is used to this kind of weather, but I am not. Growing up spring was like a mild summer rather than a mild winter. We were excited if it snowed 4 inches all year. After being in the South for February and March we had to dig out all of our long sleeved clothing when we got back in New England this past week.
The Lord has been so good to us since our last prayer update. He has kept us safe over thousands of miles on the road and has provided for every need. He allowed us to be in 5 missions conference over the last two months, and has brought our support level to 18% of our monthly need.
We would appreciate your prayers concerning our health. Towards the end of March, Gabriel caught hand, foot, and mouth disease, and then decided to give it to his “Daddy.” Because of our being sick, we had to cut a missions conference short and reschedule two meetings. We finally got well only to get sick again with some sort of virus that has wiped all three of us out. Please pray that the Lord would get us healthy and keep us that way.
Gabriel is very busy! He is almost walking and is constantly on the move. When we have the space for him to play and be on the move, it is so much fun to play with him and let him get all of that energy out. However, it is not unusual for us to be in the car for 3 or more hours at a time and this can be difficult for a little boy with tons of energy AND his parents. Please pray that the Lord would give me wisdom to find the balance of staying busy and not pushing my family too hard.
We have taken it as part of our ministry on deputation to bring attention to the need of the Boston area for church planters. It has been our prayer that the Lord would send forth laborers into this needy harvest field. So in order to highlight the great need of Boston, we have decided to begin sending prayer letters monthly, rather than bi- monthly as we have been doing. We will still send the typical prayer update every-other month; however, on the off months, we have decided to send a Focus on the Field Update, in which we will highlight some needed area of ministry in inner-city Boston. We hope that this will give you a greater understanding and burden for the field to which God has called us and help you to pray for our ministry and the city of Boston more specifically.
Thank you again for your prayers and support.
