Our support slowly climbs towards 100% as the weeks roll on. We're at 14% now. To some that might not seem like much, but having started MAF with zero just a few short weeks ago....it seems like we've come such a long way. Another nice thing about it is that ministry partnership has a way of gently reminding us that 1) God is in control and has His own timeline, and 2) "Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think anything of ourselves, but our sufficiency flows from God." (2 Cor. 3:5) We are reminded daily that this is God's work and we get to be a part of it...and we get to invite you to be a part of it too!
It has been truly beautiful weather here in Vancouver since we've been back. Joy and I have started running in the cool morning air; what a refreshing way to start the day, and good exercise too! Joy has been such a great help these past couple months. She is truly amazing! Working together and seeing each other at the "office" all day every day has been really fun. We've worked well with each other so far, and her smile always makes me happy whenever I'm in a bad mood!
In case you didn't already know, MAF has a program in Haiti and I'm sure you've all been watching on the news as hurricane after hurricane has just devastated that island. A local Idaho news station did a story on MAF and their relief efforts in Haiti as they bring hope in the midst of widespread flooding and destruction. Take a look at the video here:
*The airplane behind President John Boyd is actually the airplane I flew in April during my technical evaluation!
Until next time!
