This past December we left Montreal with a six-week old and a two-year old and headed west; yearning to find the rest of our support team and determined to make the most of the time we had. While on the road we spoke at numerous churches, presented at small groups, met with families, and followed up with any lead possible. We returned to Montreal last week with a near six-month old and three-year old. The time away full-time support raising was exhausting and exhilarating. I’m thrilled to announce that the Lord provided!
Although we are still desperately in need of monthly supporters, we have been given the go-ahead to depart for our field of service - Elkhart, Indiana – for this coming June!! Can I get a woot woot!?!
We go in faith that the Lord will continue to provide the remaining funds we need. Please continue to pray with us and if you are interested in joining our support team, please click here to download our “Partner With Us” form or visit our website (candiceandtom.com) and click on the “Get Involved” link in the menu at the top.
And so, we are getting ready! Tom has handed in his resignation at his Montreal day job, and is eagerly looking forward to joining the engineering team at the Tech Center. He can’t wait to sink his teeth into radio design and community development projects. I’m looking forward to settling the family (finally!), finding us a home, and putting my knowledge of nutrition to work for those in need.
Although we are eager to get there (and by God’s grace, it’s time to go!), there is a lot that needs to happen between now and then:
- We want to meet with all of our (prayer and financial) supporters in Montreal before we leave, to celebrate this together!
- We need to follow-up with our supporters who wanted to start their financial support when we headed to the field. Well, that time is now!
- We need to obtain work visas for the United States. This process is under way. May the Lord provide in his perfect timing.
- We need to pack up our home and get ready to depart. Anyone want to help?!
Please join us in prayer that all will work out according to His will.
Let’s do this thing!
