Today I had the opportunity to share a brief ministry update with our church family. I read from 2 Corinthians 5:17-20, reminded them how we see missionary aviation as a fulfillment of our call to be Christ's ambassadors of reconciliation, and gave an update on our financial status. Finally, I talked about how we are just one part of the Body of Christ, and an extension of the community of believers. The support of this community—the Body of Christ—is crucial to our ministry.
Please pray with us that God will continue to bring new ministry partners who will support us through prayer, financial giving, and other means. We are currently about 26% funded, and can't begin serving with MMS Aviation until we reach 100% of our financial goal. Our pastor has been very encouraging, and his desire is for the people of Grace Church in Perrysburg to provide 50% of our monthly financial support. This would be an incredible blessing! We don't know how God will choose to provide, but we continue to pray and trust Him to meet our every need.
Thanks for your prayers, and stay tuned for updates as we get closer to serving with MMS Aviation.
