A Change Of Direction For Us

Here’s the latest about our journey into missions.

After much prayer and counsel from leadership and trusted friends we have made the hard decision to not go to Marseille, France. It was with much deliberation and tears that we came to this decision. When we started this journey of getting to Marseille, it was because we wanted to be obedient to the Lord’s leading. At the start it was not necessarily about the destination but about obedience to step out and follow Him. It has been well over two years since then and we are now realizing how true that really was. There were a few contributing factors but lack of financial support is the most clear and obvious reason. We actively started to do partnership development almost 2 years ago and support has been very slow coming in. We knew from the beginning that it would be a miracle for us to receive the financial partners we needed and so the lack of partners is a clear sign to us that the Lord has something else for us.
 
Our desire is still very much to be obedient to the Holy Spirit’s leading and so for now we are asking the Lord what the next steps will be.
 
Regardless of location, I know I am called to be a messenger of the Gospel. Along those lines, I have been meeting and praying with a few others about the possibility of doing disciple making/simple church planting right here in the Twin Cities. As you know, the nations continue to come to us right here, and so, if the Lord opens up the door, we want to be a faithful witness here. I will certainly let you all know when the next steps become more clear.
 
Thank you all for your support through the years and feel free to ask any questions you have. Also let us know if you are hearing anything prophetically from the Lord for us.
 
With love,
Dave, Janet and the kids
