How ONE was called!

A dear friend Bridget (the very one that introduced Dan & I) contacted us about a week or so ago expressing that she'd be praying about how God would use HER to help send us!

And she had a GREAT idea that I just have to share!

Bridget reached out to a blogger she'd been in contact with and asked this blogger if she would share our story on HER blog to reach more readers.... GENIUS I tell you! It is truly incredible how many messages and emails we've been receiving from people we don't even know... well, it's because of amazing friends like Bridget!

She saw a need...
She knew that the Lord calls us to GO and make disciples of all nations...
And that her role right now is a sender...
She asked the Lord how she could help...
In the midst of her crazy schedule of wife, mother, professional, and hubby in college...
And HE showed her a way!

This led her to connect us with dear Callie over at Through Clouded Glass... which, I might add, is a very thought-provoking blog. Poke around for a while, you'll find something that will challenge you!

Callie shared a story yesterday about a conversation she had with her sweetie about their role in missions... a conversation that resulted in them wanting to support missions in a more meaningful way... someday... when they could afford it! Shortly after, Bridget contacted them and the rest is history!

I just LOVE how God uses us in the midst of our every day, busy lives, right where we are! 

Check out the first part of the story here... and she'll be posting part two tomorrow!

Would you consider helping us in this way by sharing our story on your blog? 
Do you know another blogger that would be willing to do so? 
Would you share our story on facebook or twitter? 
How about ask your small group or Sunday school class to allow us to come share our story in person? 

We are currently at 11% of our monthly commitments... and we need 75% before we can go! Please continue to pray and ask the Lord to raise up the Body of believers to help send!


  1. I would be happy to. If you write something up like you did for Lifesong that would be perfect.

  2. So happy I could help you guys out, even if it's just in a small way! I know you are going to do great things for the Lord! Excited to be a small part of your story. :-)
