The work involved with moving a family of 7 halfway across the world to the South of Chin@, is enormous.
The endless lists, the overwhelming responsibility, the incredible emotional process ...
would have been too much for just Adrian and myself to have shouldered.
And so with that on our hearts, we are completely overwhelmed with endless gratitude when a Team of 'Sender's formed together ~ to surround us, to hold us up.
Like in Exodus, when Moses' arms grew tired ~ Moses’ arms soon became so tired he could no longer hold them up. So Aaron and Hur found a stone for him to sit on. Then they stood on each side of Moses, holding up his hands. So his hands held steady until sunset.~
Meet Bonnie, Our Sending Team Leader
Nancy, our Administrator for Banking
Richard, our Logistical Coordinator
Nat, our IT & Communications Support,
Kathleen, our Tax Accountant
Although it is our family that is getting on the plane, make no mistake ~ there are many folks that are equally apart of what we are doing while in Chin@. The support and the Sponsorship* are KEY to allowing us to go. God has woven our hearts together with wonderful people, who love the Lord and who love Chin@.
When He called us to this journey, He also called them.
Thankyou Sending Team!
