Yesterday at 1:00 we interviewed with 4 people from the Overseer Board of Converge. Last night we had supper with the whole board and it was very fun and interesting to connect with these leaders of our Denomination.
An hour ago we went before the whole board and briefly told our story up to this point (we gave them information last night that they could read through) and answer any questions that they had. They voted to accept us as missionaries unanimously!
We are so excited to be officially “Missionaries”. Now on to the next steps. Raising support, selling the house, getting rid of our tons of “stuff”.
Please continue to pray as I am still healing, for God to keep infection away and for us to be able to do the things needed in God’s timing. Thank you so much for praying!!
On Wednesday morning we leave to head to Chicago to meet with the Overseer Board of Converge for this next step in our journey of discovering if GECHAAN is God’s will for our near future.
Our appointment is at 1:00 on Wednesday afternoon, and I understand we will get the opportunity to talk about our strategies and how it could affect GECHAAN as well as an interview.
Please pray that IF we are to be the people to take over for Art and Dorothy Helwig at GECHAAN, that we are approved and can move on to the next steps. Please also pray that we can get some answers on how quickly we can proceed with fund-raising and a bit clearer understanding of a time-line that we could possibly expect as well as some details that we need to think out.
We are excited and just still praying for the Lord’s Leading in all of this!!
