We have been busy, busy, BUSY throughout the month of October sharing our vision of the New York City church plant with groups, individuals, and churches. During the month of October alone we have traveled in four states, spoken to almost 15 groups, and had innumerable meals with others! These have all been sweet times of fellowship and we have been so encouraged, not only by the excitement of the people we've met with, but also by the Lord's goodness as he provides in miraculous ways. We are so grateful for all the support we've received. Through these meetings, God has given us yet another confirmation that we are walking in exactly the way He has planned for us! If you would like for us to come to your church or home to share about the church plant, please e-mail Erin at firstname.lastname@example.org to get a date on the calendar.
We are still working hard every day to raise the financial and prayer support needed to move in the early part of 2015. Our monthly financial goal is currently at about 30% and we feel strongly that we need to at least be at 80% before we move to New York. Please continue to pray for supporters to rise up and start giving now especially to our monthly funds.
We would like to encourage those who have made a verbal financial commitment to the church plant to go ahead and join the support team. You can set up a monthly draft easily and post-date the draft to start whenever you like.
God has been so good to already send committed groups to come to New York City starting summer 2015 and possibly even a summer intern. We feel so blessed and are excited to watch the Lord work through these people!
We would appreciate your prayers Nov 13-21 as we travel to New York on a mission trip with our church. We will have an opportunity to tour several schools and look at some apartments while we are there. Please pray that the Lord would guide our decisions and also that we would have a great trip with our church!!!
