I'm excited to officially announce that as of a week from today, on April 9, I will be a full time staff member at eMi Canada!
It has been a long but rewarding journey to get to this point for us. We started raising support to join staff three years ago. God has taught us more than I could have imagined in that time. Thank you to every one of you who have come along side us on this journey with your support, encouragement and prayers - you mean more to us than we can express.
Of course, the journey isn't over yet.
We are still in the process of raising full support, as we aren't quite at 100% yet. We set our support raising goal three years ago, and we are very close to meeting that goal. However, with Liz a month away from the due date of our first child (Liz and baby boy are both healthy and happy!), life is about the change drastically (for the better of course). Therefore, we've increased our fundraising goal and will continue to seek out additional financial support as God leads us.
My recent trip to Guatemala was an incredible encouragement that eMi is where our family is called to serve (for more on that trip, check out our blog and the trip page on our website). I'm excited to see more and more the difference God is making through us and our supporters as I begin full time work at eMi. If you haven't already, I hope you'll pray and consider joining us in making a difference with eMi.
