Prayer Letter October 2011



October was Finish Line Month!  We asked God to help us raise 100% of our support by the end of October.  This was an impossible task!  It was beyond our capability.  We put our faith in our God and we believed He would provide.  We finished October at 100%!  Thank you, Lord.  Thank you to all of you who prayed for us.  Thank you to all of you who are giving to us.  Thank you.


God has shown Himself faithful and we can trust Him to be faithful in the future.

October was a busy month - We visited 5 churches in October.

  • Meadowbrook Baptist Church in Lima, OH - We shared our ministry in several formats.  We love the Jamisons, Kempfs, and the rest of the family of God at Meadowbrook.  Just two weeks later they voted to support us!  We are excited to be partners with them!
  • First Baptist Church in Troy, OH – We appreciated meeting many people at this friendly church and spending time afterwards with the Pastor Christian and his wife Teresa.
  •  Berachah Church in Middletown, OH - We taught a mission program for children on Sunday to promote their missions emphasis month. We appreciated spending time with the people of Berachah especially during the International Dinner and Iron Chef competition.
  • OARBC conference – The conference was hosted by our home church, Washington Heights Baptist.  We enjoyed seeing our Pastor friends, and their wives. 
  • Hartford Christian Church in Spencerville, OH - We presented our ministry on a Tuesday night as part of their Mission Conference.  It was such a pleasure getting to know Pastor King and the family of God that gathers at HCC.
  •  Abbe Road Baptist Church in Elyria, OH – We were part of a Mission Conference from Friday-Sunday.  The hospitality of the Roth family was a tremendous blessing.  The Roth Family - our forever friendsThe Roth Family - our forever friends

We are thankful for these churches and their kindness to us. 


Please pray for us as we prepare to move to Costa Rica for language school.  We need to enroll in school, find a place to live, obtain visas, get shots, visit supporting churches, see all our friends and family, write our will, find a bunch more suitcases, sell stuff, store stuff, pack stuff, and a bunch of other things we don’t even know about yet. 

We appreciate your faithful prayers and support and we pray God’s continued blessing on each one of you!  

Mark, Jen, Andy, Gabe, Ben, and Julia
