We are truly discovering that it is an overwhelming and humbling thing to rely on God's provision through His body, the Church. We received our first support summary this past week. We are very much at the beginning of this journey so this helped us gauge where, what and how we need to proceed with support raising.
A dear friend of mine reminded me on Sunday that approaching people face to face is going to be our best means of communicating God's work and our heart's desire for the people of Liberia. I agree and it is our desire that we would be able to share and encourage other believers with the work that God is doing in our lives as well as in Liberia. What she meant is that Kyle and I are an experience, best had in person not through a letter. I think our first letter was good, but she is right our heart, humor, and eagerness weren't communicated the same as in real life because we were trying to cram 4+ yrs of history and an explanation of the hopeful future into it! It makes sense that Kyle and I might get lost somewhere in the footnotes!
We saw Alice n' Wonderland in 3D over the weekend and it was quite the visual stunner. I think Kyle and I are kind of like that. We are best in 3D and our letter was 2D at best. So that is why in the coming weeks we will be contacting many of you via phone, email, skype, etc. We want desperately for you to hear and see our heart for missions, specifically the work in Liberia.
If you think your church, women's missions group, mission's committee, etc. would like to have a special speaker give us a shout.
Kyle and Jessica
