Three Months and Counting

Posted on June 3, 2011


Sometimes we feel like we just woke up and realized how near our scheduled departure for Kenya is.

Right now, the plan is that we would be leaving in August for two months of Technical Orientation in North Carolina. And then after a quick visit with our families over Christmas, we would be getting on an airplane headed for Nairobi.

This means we have three months left in Spokane. Three months to go through everything we own and determine what to store, what to try to take with us and what to give away or sell. Three months to spend with the people in our lives here.

Despite all the people we will be saying goodbye to, we are equally as eager to return to Kenya and be with people there, people who we have already developed friendships with, and people we are yet to develop friendships with. When we think of these relationships, four months seems like a long time.


This also means we have essentially TWO months to have all of our monthly and outgoing costs raised.  We are confident that while the money will not just fall out of the sky, God will bring together a team of people to invest their money in what we ourselves will be investing our time and energy in. We realize that in the grand scheme of things, the money we have to raise it just a drop in the bucket, but we are definitely getting down to crunch time. However, whether it all happens by August or we have to wait another six months, we have peace.

We are about half way to having full monthly financial support. While this sometimes it seems overwhelming, we also realize that it is very doable.

For example, we would have 100% of our support if

3 people gave 150$/month

5ish people gave 100$/month

8ish people gave 75$/month

10ish people gave 50$/month

15ish people gave 25$/month

Do you feel like there is a place at which you could jump on board?  We know that God is the one who moves hearts.  If you are reading this you at least somewhat care what is happening in our lives, and we would ask you to pray about how you might partner with us in prayer or finances.

If you are interested in giving, please fill out the form below and we will make sure to send you the appropriate information.


We believe that prayer actually moves God to act, and so we depend on people praying for us. We would love to know if you have committed to pray for us, and so we ask you to let us know by clicking on the link below and filling out this very short form (we want to make sure that we have all your contact info so that we can keep you up to date on how you can pray for us).
