Deputation Update...

Deputation - 2 years, 6 months
Churches Visited - 108
Boomerangs Sent - 2,708
Miles Traveled - 50,000+
Support - 96%
Supporting Churches - 64
Supporting Families - 9

We are pretty much finished with deputation. We have a few churches that said they plan to pick us up for support, so our per cent should increase. We are basically waiting for our visas. Most of our personal belongings are packed, I will need to repack them in boxes rather than rubbermaid tubs (shipping company prefers boxes). So, once our visas are approved we are ready to go. Only problem is our visas could take 6-8 months. There is nothing we can do to make the process go faster, therefore, we just wait. Waiting is not my specialty. So, please keep us in prayer that our visas will come in the Lord's timing, for our patience, and for us to reach 100% support.

The Lord has been so good to us - we have no complaints. Every need has been met, many times before we even knew of the need. Our hearts are in Australia, we want to be there now, but God's ways are higher than our ways. We do not want to get ahead of God, but we also do not want to get behind Him either. Thank you for your prayers.
