We’ve Arrived!

On Wednesday, August 18th we left Grand Rapids, Michigan and began our journey to Portugal. After a layover in Newark, we boarded our plane and flew across the Atlantic. We arrived in Lisbon at 6 AM local time. There were a couple of missionaries who were kind enough to wake up that early and greet us at the airport.Since then, we have been busy adjusting to our life here. Each day has been productive and encouraging. We are grateful for your prayers and encouragement. Below are some pictures of places we have seen during our travels here in Portugal. Enjoy!

Almost There

What an exciting month this has been so far. On Tuesday evening, August 10th, we had our commissioning service at Calvary Baptist Church in Charlotte, Michigan. This is the church that my (David’s) dad pastors and where I spent my high school years. Five other supporting churches from the area also sent their pastors and many people from their congregations to join in this special service. It was a wonderful evening of thanksgiving for God’s provision and prayer for His guidance as we leave for Portugal. It was a great encouragement for us to see so many friends and family come and take part of this event.In other news, we leave for Portugal on Wednesday, August 18th to begin our first term. Our support is now over 90% and we are prayerful that the rest will come in soon. To God be the glory for the great things He has done.
