Dear Family, Friends, and Supporters,
We are writing to share some news and an urgent need. You might also want to view the video linked below.
Due to an unexpected drop in financial support our support account has fallen into a deficit and is unable to sustain us on the mission field. Our only recourse at this point is to return to the USA for the dual purpose of reconnecting with our current supporters and finding additional financial support for our return to Ecuador. We have purchased plane tickets and will leave Ecuador on August 23rd. Currently, we are packing up our things, making preparations to store or sell our furniture, our vehicle, and some our our appliances in preparation for our first Home Ministry Assignment.
We are excited to see many of you when we return and to believe that God has a plan in the season. We are also looking forward to a bit of rest and visiting with family and friends. It is not uncommon for missionaries to find themselves needing to return sooner than expected. And we are hopeful that our time in the states will be beneficial for us in many ways.
Please pray for us:
- Pray for a safe return to the USA
- Pray for all the preparations we need to make before we leave Ecuador
- Pray for all the “goodbyes” we need to make
- Please also pray for the additional support we need in order to return to the mission field.
- Please pray for divine appointments and opportunities to come our way.
We would like to share about our ministry to the people of Ecuador with as many new churches and families as possible. God is doing great things in Ecuador and we enjoy sharing about how we come alongside others with the love of Jesus Christ here in Ecuador.
Thank you or your prayers and continued support!
Joshua, Allison, Grace, Abigail, and Simeon
