Dear friends and family,
We are excited to announce that we are planning on serving with Word of Life Hungary, Lord willing, next year! Chris and I recently came to the conclusion, that for now, that is where the Lord could really use us best. We were thrilled to learn that the doors are open for us to serve there, and we’ve spent the past couple of months working out details.
We are happy to say, we have an account with Word of Life set up, and are ready to start support raising. Let the fun begin! 🙂 I would like to take a few moments here and explain (to those of you unfamiliar with how some missionaries get paid) the idea behind support raising, and how that really works.
So Chris and I will be serving with Word of Life Hungary, which is a non-profit organization. As such, they don’t pay employees out of profits like a company does, instead their employees (= missionaries) raise support, which covers some ministry expenses, and this is also where their salaries are taken from. Chris and I will go to churches and individuals, tell them about what exactly we will do at Word of Life Hungary, how that will help the organization and ultimately bring glory to God, and ask them to consider financially supporting us monthly. We hope to reach the amount we need to raise in order to be able to serve at Word of Life Hungary and live out of the salary we get (from the support we raise).
Not all Christians are called to go to a different country and serve Him there, but are glad to be a part of God’s work overseas as they financially allow missionaries to move to these countries and serve the Lord there. We are looking for partners like these. On our part, we keep them updated and share what God is doing in our lives and in others’ lives through us. We are accountable to them and depend on their faithfulness as they sacrificially give to us, so we can focus on our ministries. We want to be useful tools in God’s hands. So rejoice with us, please pray for us, and if you or someone you know are interested in partnering with us, don’t hesitate to contact us! There is a contact form on our homepage and we would love to hear from you! You will also find a way to subscribe to our posts on the homepage. We encourage you to do so, so you can get automatic updates on us. You can click on the “Support Us” button that will take you to Word of Life’s donation page, where you can send us your gift. If you have any questions or comments, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with us!
Let this new phase in our lives begin! 🙂
