Mike and Shawnea arrived safely at their location in Ecuador. They had weather delays getting in and had little sleep their first night; however, Shawnea recovered from her illness before they left.
In their first days a lot has been accomplished, and they can feel God's presence. Please continue to pray for God's blessing on those they serve and on Mike and Shawnea as they minister to others needs.
On our way to the Mental Health and Missions Conference we received a call from One Mission Society (OMS) requesting a field visit ASAP. We are in the middle of moving to a smaller home, so I have a lot of strategic packing and sorting to do. Going to the conference was already stressing my valuable time budget. At first I panicked, then I remembered my own words that I had repeated so many times; "No this is not a good time to sell a house, but God's timing is perfect." Needless to say those words have proven to be true time and again...why would I questing His timing now? We will travel to South America (in the middle of our move) with the same faith that has brought us this far, "His timing is perfect."
