Final Approval

Weiling and I just completed our phone interview with Tim, Training coordinator for Team Expansion. Our completed application now moves to the review committee and we hope to have a response to the affirmative by the end of January. Once we're approved, then we will attend a week-long LAUNCH session in Louisville, KY this spring. Aside from raising the necessary support, the final step in the process is to attend a 3-week session in Colorado Springs with our kids where we'll be educated on the finer points of mission life. The cost of that is $6,290 + airfare, so we are petitioning God to provide and to ensure that we'll have a spot reserved for us. Summer tends to book early. Please pray for these next few steps to go smoothly and that obstacles are avoided.
