February Prayer Letter
A Snowy Welcome
We are thrilled to report we are FULLY FUNDED! Praise God! He has been faithful to provide new support to replace what was lost the last few years.
We moved to Lincoln on February 15th and it has not stopped snowing! We endured our first blizzard and take heart when locals tell us this has been an “unusual” winter. The last few weeks
have been spent on sabbatical, resting, connecting with the Lord and growing as leaders after a whirlwind six months since getting back from Cote d’Ivoire.
Speaking of our former home, we are leading a two week trip of students and interns there March 11-24. Please pray for us as we travel, seek to bring lift to the ministry, and give these students and interns vision for reaching West Africa with the Gospel. We are so thankful to continue in this partnership with Cote d’Ivoire.
Fields Ready for Harvest
God is paving the way before us in Nebraska. I (Davy) spent two days in Omaha a few weeks ago doing a launch trip with other team leaders. At Creighton, we found two freshman guys who said they would help me start Cru when we arrived. At Metro CC, we talked with two faculty who are going to start Bible Studies this month. At Clarkson, I found out Cru still had a Bible study going from years ago, but we were unaware! And I met two girls interested in starting new studies and one girl whose boyfriend is from Cote d’Ivoire. Is not God good as He goes before us?
Continuing the KV Challenge
I had the privilege of discipling Megan in Cote d’Ivoire. She decided to spend her second intern year on the Central Kansas team. It has been a joy to hear how the Lord is using the things she learned in CI to engage with students here in the states. Megan and another one of our former STINTers, Stephen, have been in charge of reaching a new school in their scope, Emporia State. The Lord has shown them favor as they’ve launched this new campus. Students have responded to their challenges and they even have people in the community volunteering to help reach the campus with the Gospel. Recently Megan used the Key Volunteer Challenge which she learned in CI with a few girls she met. One of them drew the picture below when asked, “How can you reach the entire campus of Emporia with the name of Jesus?” Megan said, “This is exactly what we want! Students who understand the vision of disciples making disciples. This is how we'll reach the entire campus of Emporia.” We are so proud of Megan and the impact she is making!
Praise the Lord for his provision to get us fully funded and for our new financial partners.
Pray for our trip to Cote d’Ivoire March 11-24.We are taking both boys with us so pray for our travel with them and that they would adjust to the time change well.
We will jump into the ministry in Nebraska when we return from Cote d’Ivoire. Pray for us as we learn a new place and seek to reach all 36 campuses in this state.
