Over the Pacific


As I type this, Stephen is flying somewhere north of Alaska, headed to the frigid-but-friendly land of Mongolia. There are so many open doors with young men in the same area where Ruth is serving. Stephen has had such a heart to meet those needs and we're thankful he's taken the initiative to make a difference.

Much of his focus will be on serving with our friends, teaching guitar, basketball, and exploring furniture building possibilities. We're excited about what the Lord has in store for the coming weeks and continue to pray for his safe travels and effective opportunities.


Saying goodbyes


Packing tight!


Heading out at the airport last night preparing for the long flights ahead. 

We love you,  Stephen. 
You're in our prayers half-the-world away!

"I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go;
I will guide you with My eye."
Psalm 32:8

Wow, Stephen! You and Ruth have both been given such wonderful opportunities! It's also great that the two of you will be together for Thanksgiving. I'll be praying for you as God works through you to minister to the young Mongolian men. It's cool that you'll be able to use your gifts and interests to help and encourage them. Looking forward to updates!
Many blessings,
Alison
