We are entering into our third week of support raising and man, oh man has it been a whirlwind. Trying to balance 50 plus hours of work with 20 or so hours of support raising, family time and selling a house is not for the faint of heart. BUT with that said, we are energized and loving it. I honestly had no idea we would be so well received by people in our asking. Like tears shared all around at most meetings. Feelings of love and encouragement being poured over us. Friends and family wanting to know every detail and asking questions that show just how intentional this shared relationship and support team is going to be. God’s affirmation is resounding day to day and we're seeing His provision and care for us through you guys. We honestly can’t say thank you enough!
So here is where we are currently with emotions, prayer needs and support raising...
We are energized but definitely needing prayer for perseverance and continued energy. There will probably be a wall that we hit at some point and man, I just want to crush through it, get back up and keep running. Pray for that will you?
We had several offers on our home and after inspections went beautifully, we are officially under contract! PRAISE! Pray that the appraisal goes through without a hitch so we can continue on in finding a house to rent in Austin and being able to move out there in early July.
We are still contacting several close friends and family but are entering into a time where we'll need to start making connections with people we have never met. Pray that we would be bold and feel confident in our asking and that our desire to follow God’s course for us shows deeply to those who hear our story.
Financially, we are making great headway but still have a long way to go! We decided to create a little visual aid to help you guys see where we are in raising support. We will update it regularly and let you know what our current goals are.
If you are reading this and have joined our team already, thank you so much! Your prayer, generosity and words of encouragement are lifting us up each day. If you are reading this and have yet to hop on board, please contact us! We would love to sit down with you to share more and talk through how we can partner together in this journey we're on.
