Pray for Missions
As you may already know, Don and I are praying about a call to missionary life, we have given ourselves 2.5 years to pray and decide. We have so many obstacles preventing this from happening right now, but we know if it's God's will, the obstacles will be cleared. I wanted to share the blogs of 2 families that could really use your support in the way of prayers. The first blog is of my friends, the Alvarez family who are en route to the Philippines, the second is the Eckstine Family who reside in St. Lucia in the Caribbean. Currently, I am so moved by this recent development of the Eckstine Family(click name to read post) and here is the blog of The Alvarez Family(click to view blog). Both of these families are Catholic and went through Family Missions Company(click to view website) Right now, our family shares in the missions of these families by offering a small financial donation, which we believe shares in their work. This also helps sustain us as we contemplate our vocations. They are truly living the scripture verse in Matthew 28:19, "Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit ."
