I’m sitting in a chair across from our bed watching him sleep. He’s curled up tight. Breathing heavy. The thermometer just read nearly 103.
Earlier I checked the funds. $1200 short for our trip.
Jeremy, Stephen, Caleb, and I leave next Wednesday for the Dominican Republic. We’ll partner with local missionaries, minister in a school, and get to meet our 2 Compassion boys.
I’ve worried all along about leaving the younger 3 at home. And now Jonathan’s fever makes me want to back out completely.
But we feel led to go. The 4 of us. Thankfully Jeremy’s funds were already taken care of. The boys worked hard to raise theirs. They made crafts and sent out letters. And because of so many of you, they are both completely funded! Thank you!
Then there’s me. The one hesitant to go. The one who could cry just writing this. The one who feels like a loser for maybe, just maybe, asking you to support our family in this.
But nonetheless we feel called. To board that plane next Wednesday. To travel to the DR. And I’m trusting God will provide in the way He always does.
All of that to say if you are kind and generous and gracious and loving and would like to help us with the leftover $1200, we would be so, so thankful! You can mail it (tax deductible) to:
P.O. Box 1193
Barboursville, WV, 25504
You can put The Summit Church in the memo line but please include something that has my name on it along with your address.
I don’t write on here for money. Y’all know that. But this time feels different. We are at the go or turn back point, and we believe He’s said go.
Please pray for us. For the 3 littles back home. For the softening of our older 2 boys’ hearts. We long for nothing more than to see God wreck them, wreck us for His kingdom.
So, so thankful for each of you for so many reasons!
PS-I hope to blog while we’re gone so be on the lookout!

We had the best models showcasing the boys’ artwork during our fundraising!
