Greatly encouraged...

Back in November, I was occasionally writing a "Thankful Thursday"...well, since it is Thursday I thought I would update you on five of the many things we are thankful for ...

1. We have been greatly encouraged by everyone's e-mails, cards, phone calls and prayers after the death of Brad's grandmother. The service was a sweet reminder of how much Gamma was loved...and how great our God is...

2. We are SO thankful for our new teammates Jeff and Jodie McMullen... Yes, they have names and faces, (and kids Ewan and Liesl) and you can get introduced to them all at their blog by clicking HERE.

3. Just today we found that Rio Vista Community Church will be partnering with us in a substantial way...

4. We are grateful for the new individual prayer and financial supporters...We now have over 80% of our monthly support pledged! Praise God! And please pray that we'll be at 100% by the end of March, so that we can tie up loose ends, pack, and prepare to head out on May 28.

5. Recently we have had great conversations with a few couples and singles who are inquiring about joining the team...we look forward to seeing what God may be doing as we build relationships with these folks!
