A call to prayer partners

When missionaries travel on deputation they are looking for churches to support them financially.  These {monthly} finances allow the missionary to live on a foreign field and share the gospel with the people God has called them to reach.

Although the financial aspect is important, prayer support is just as important as families leave their home country and move to another.  Missionaries don't just ask for churches to team up with them financially, but we ask churches to support and uphold us in prayer as well.

Finances make it possible for missionaries to go, prayers keep them going and on the field.

That is why I am coming to you, our prayer partners.  
Would you pray for us?

Our family has some specific requests for which we are praying for guidance, answers, and direction.  I am sorry that I can't give a lot of detail about our specific needs, but God knows exactly what they are.  Our requests include spiritual, physical, financial, personal, and ministry needs.  We would ask you to pray that God would show Himself in a great way.
This month our family is coming together every morning and each evening asking God to meet our needs according to His will and purpose.  Would you spend extra time in prayer for our family some time this month?  It could be one day during the month, once a week, or even a few minutes each day.
Our family would be grateful and humbled to know many friends and prayer partners are lifting us up in prayer specifically this month.

A friend shared this song with my hubby and I yesterday.  It was such a blessing that I thought I would share it with you and hope you also receive a blessing.  Take a listen to "I'll Pray Again"

WinklAir update

After traveling for over a year now, WinklAir continues to rack up miles.  

Indianapolis, Indiana
  Charleston, South Carolina
Pope, Mississippi
Las Vegas, Nevada

It has been so fun to get pictures as are plane visits people all across America.  WinklAir is now in California where it has 18 stops from Riverside up to Redding.  So to all our Californian friends, WinklAir is coming!  After California there are just two more stops (Canada and Greenland) before our plane returns home.

*a friendly reminder*
Please don't forget to send us a postcard once the plane has visited you.  Out of the 20 stops our plane has made, we have only received 10 postcards. (Some may be in the mail) If you forgot to send us a postcard, we would sure appreciate it if you could still drop one in the mail to us.  Our mailing address is under the "contact information" tab at the top of my blog.

A missionary family in Australia is doing this same project and their plane visited Johvi in January.  It came to us from Ecuador.  There was a flight plan change after it arrived and instead of sending it to  Ghana, West Africa, we sent if off to our friends in Greenland. You can read about their pioneering missionary life at Arctic Adventures.

Don't forget your postcard!
