We have made the announcement of our family's plans to enter into missions at our home church, Harvest Naperville, this past weekend. Can't say it enough, we love this church, they were so supportive and encouraging and even allowed me to preach on faith and what the Lord was doing. If you want you can watch the video of the service below. I'm not going to lie, I was a little emotional in the beginning so please forgive the ugly crying faces I make.
While we were announcing all of this we were being officially accepted to Josiah Venture as new staff. We got an official acceptance letter and they set us up on their website with a little bio and everything! To take a look at it click here.
It is a strange mix of exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Now that we have put it all out there for everyone there is no turning back. A kind man from our church came up to me after the service and shared a verse with me which has been a huge help for those 'pit in the stomach' moments. It is from Gen 28:15 "Behold, I am with you and will keep you wherever you go... for I will not leave you until I have done what I have promised you.”
