Thank you for your financial and prayer support. Thank you for sharing in our upcoming exciting adventure of faith and service. Doing mission overseas has been a long-term dream of ours and we leave on a jet plane this Friday at 6:30am!
And we’ve already experienced our first mini-miracle: Chuck has severe Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS), which requires a cocktail of four meds, including two “controlled-substances” his neurologist told us cannot be legally prescribed beyond a 3-month quanity. The problem is that the meds are not available in Malawi. Chuck was just going to have to grin and bear it and be resolved to be sleepless in Malawi for 8 months. But… low and behold…when Chuck picked up his meds yesterday, the Neurologist’s office had mistakenly called in a year’s worth of both meds and the Insurance company also overrode the limit and Chuck left the pharmacy with a year’s worth of the very important RLS meds! What!?!
Now we will be praying we get through Customs without being arrested for drug-smuggling (we do have documentation we hope will help us get through Customs).
There are many Bible verses that are alive and active as we prepare for the Journey:
- Ps 24:1: The Earth is the Lord’s and everything in it.
- Ps 27:1-2: The Lord is our salvation, whom shall we fear?
- Ps 36:5-10 (paraphrase) Your steadfast love reaches the heavens, your righteousness is like majestic mountains, and your justice like the great deep. How priceless is your unfailing love.
- Romans 5:39: Nothing can separate us from the love of God in Jesus Christ.
We are going forth in that love we will be giving and receiving, praying you will be upheld by this same love.
Blessings on your Journey of Life, Faith and Love,
