August 11 - Families

As the First Day of School gets closer, we want to be in prayer for families, teachers, and school leaders in our church, community, and beyond. To be intentional about this, we'd love it if all of our teachers and school administrators, and any school staff that you come in contact with, would send in their prayer requests HERE so we can pray specifically for them. Of course, we'd love to have them come join us on August 18 if they can.

Community First! Village is a 51-acre master planned community that seeks to serve chronically homeless members of our city. This vision has grown into a village of tiny homes that serve as permanent residents for those in need of housing. To know more about what they do, click  HERE . We will spend the morning working in their garden along with other tasks they need done to keep their village thriving. It’s an amazing sight to see.  There are a few spots open for volunteers!

UPDATE AND PRAYER REQUEST: We have had some big recent changes in our lives that we would love to share with you all. The Lord is so good and kind and works in incredible ways, even when it is not in accordance with "our plan" (funny how that works, isn't it?). Though we had plans to be in Mexico for many more months, and Mountain Gateway much longer than even that, the Lord decided differently. After many conversations, circumstantial changes, and so much prayer and hearing from the Lord, He has led us to step out of Mexico and Mountain Gateway. 

We are transitioning into Texas where we will be living, working, and seeking the Lord for his next steps for us. Though we may not know exactly what this next season will look like, we have immense peace and feel that this will be a season of rest and listening to God's whisper for our family. We would love to invite you to pray with us for His guidance and provision in our lives.

It is hard to walk through change. The people of Mexico have been so dear to our hearts and it has been a privilege to do life with them. We are so thankful for the way Jesus has used us and worked in us these last few years, and we could not have done this without all those who have chosen to be in our corner through the journey. We are also excited for this new season and what it may hold!

We are so grateful for you and your friendship and support! Jesus bless you and your homes.
Grace & Peace,  Victor, Amber, & Benaiah
