Amazed by God’s Work

“Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen.”
Ephesians 3:20-21

Almost FULLY Funded!
Because who doesn’t like good news?

As of today, my funding stands at 75%! That leaves just $625 to raise in recurring monthly donations!

The verse from Ephesians that I chose for this month’s update is one of my favorites. It’s a distinct reminder that God is the source of all our blessings and the cause of our accomplishments. This verse also reminds me that God is capable of far more than I can even imagine or think to ask of Him. I have a tendency to limit my prayers based on my human understanding of a situation, but God repeatedly shows me how much more He can do. I have been continually amazed by God’s power and provision throughout this process. He has raised up many supporters who are generous and excited to partner with my ministry, some of whom were complete strangers!

Although I don’t have an exact departure date yet, I am anticipating leaving in early October! The missionary care coordinator in Ecuador is making the final arrangements for my language training and homestay placement. As soon as I have a final date, I will share that with you!

If you’ve felt God’s leading to partner with this ministry to support me financially or through prayer, now is the time to do it! I would love to tell you all about Jungle Kids for Christ and my role with them.

To everyone who has supported me so far, whether financially, emotionally, or through prayer, THANK YOU. I am so grateful that you’ve chosen to partner with me in this ministry to empower children in the jungles of Ecuador through a personal relationship with Jesus. You make this work possible and I am blessed to have you alongside me in this journey.
