just finish

Running the Spartan this year helped me prepare for the wrapping up of our furlough. This is how I feel:

Just finish.

We have been so very, very blessed this summer in so many ways. We are thrilled that we are so close to meeting our financial goals. We are self-supporting independent missionaries. What that means is that we don't get a paycheck. We don't have church funding. We don't have any income. We share the needs we have and are supported by those who feel  impressed to support our project and our family. To those people we are so grateful.

But blessings come in many different forms. Some people have blessed us by opening their homes to us. Feeding us. Encouraging us. One of the biggest blessings is when people pray for us.

Our project benefits also, as we have hundreds of Bibles that have been collected in the Seattle area. These Bibles will be shipped to Guyana as funds are available and will go into the interior to people who would not have access to Bibles otherwise. We can't wait to share the Bibles in the jungle.

We can't say thank you enough to everyone involved with supporting us.

We have only 2 church visits left, and then our summer of travel, speaking, and presenting is over. We would love to return to the jungle as soon as we are done, but we still have some hurdles to jump. We covet ongoing prayers in this matter.

It is to wonderful to be back in my hometown of Walla Walla! So many friends and family we don't see often enough. And I've said it before and and I'll say it again - Walla Walla has some of the most beautiful sunsets on the planet. I feel so blessed to be able to experience them again.

Thanks again everyone. :) Blessings!
