A Quick Personal Update

Friends & Family -
March has been a whirlwind and we just felt led to send out a quick, personal update to you all with some prayer requests.

While we are very excited about all that the Lord is doing in the new community project we mentioned in our last update, it is a big undertaking! Please pray for Dan, especially, as he leads this initiative.

The beginning of March, as many of you know, Finley was in the hospital for 2 days for what we thought was appendicitis. We are so grateful that the Lord protected her, she was treated for an intestinal infection, and released two days later. She has recovered very well and does not even act like she was sick at all! Praise God!

Shortly after her hospital stay, our landlord informed us that she would be selling the house we have been renting. Since buying is not an option for us, we are forced to move. The Lord has been so good to lead us to another home just before we found out we would need to move and it will even be slightly less rent each month. We are so amazed at how God always provides! We had a hard time accepting this blessing as the home has more space than we have now and we felt it unnecessary, but God has removed every roadblock, including providing a Christian landlord that has used this home for last last 15+ years to bless others in ministry. He gave us an unbelievable price in a safe neighbor and we are just blown away. Please pray for us as we make a very fast move by the 1st of April.

We would also appreciate your prayers for protection over our family as we continue our ministry here! Ministry can be messy and overwhelming, because souls are at stake. We can always use prayer in this area.

Last, but certainly not least, please pray for wisdom for us as we navigate care for one of our children. This affects all of us emotionally, financially, and mentally and while we know the road ahead is intimidating, we trust the One who calms the raging sea!

We are so grateful for your faithful partnership to our family! We are coming up on 4 years here and it feels as though we never stop fundraising. We realize this can be overwhelming to our partners and supporters, but please know we do everything we can to minimize this.

We love you all!
Dan & Christi
