Update from Mitch and Charlotte

HELLO!!!!  For the past several months through our newsletter we have asked you to be praying for us… we realize this has been a bit one sided, and would be HONORED to be praying for YOU.  What is going on in your life that we can pray for?  The good, the bad, even the ugly-we want you to know we stand WITH you.


Wanted to share a quick praise and give you a brief update.  As of this morning- we are under contract on our home(one of the requests we have been asking for your prayers on).  Mission of Mercy and Bethesda Christian Broadcasting are getting closer to finding our replacements, and we continue to lift up the ministry for discernment in who those individuals will be.


With the house looking as if it will sell (closing is set for April 2) we will locate an apartment or room for rent until early August, at which point we will say our goodbyes here in Colorado, go spend a week in North Dakota with family and friends, and a week in South Dakota with family and friend, and then head to over to take up permanent residence in Swaziland Africa.  We should be on the ground before August closes out and fall begins here(spring in South Africa).


Thank you so very much for your prayers and support, we are truly humbled in being allowed to serve Him this way, and watch Him make the path clear for us.  You are part of this journey-we can not do it without you-and we would not want to!

In Honduras for the last time before the move to Africa in August.  And will simply share this: 18 year old girl whose father left and mother passed away 3 years ago is now raising the rest of the family. When asked what her biggest struggle was, the reply was "i have no struggle, we have food and shelter" (said from the doorway of her tin shack/house) talk about a reality check here in Honduras.

That about sums it all up.  Broken, confused, frustrated, and longing for that answer in my own life.

Don’t have a lot to share, just been feeling His Love so much more lately.  It may be the most chaotic time of tasks, duties, work that I have ever had-yet the peace I feel is inexplicable.  God is putting new friends into our life, and allowing us to relish in the time we are able to spend with family.  We just went skiing as a family for the 20+ year in a row…you just can not buy memories like that!  I have learned SO much from those around us, we are seeing through what seems “different” eyes as of late.  It is exciting-as we have focused more on seeing Christ in others instead of being wrapped up in ourselves. 


6 months from now, we should be on our way to Swaziland, before that though: Honduras next week, a number of state side trips for Bethesda Christian Broadcasting(have I told you lately how much I LOVE this ministry), several orientations and fundraisers for Mission of Mercy(have I told you lately how sponsors are changing the future world one child at a time?) and trips to lead to Kenya and the Dominican Republic.


God is SO good… do you know Him like you know your best friend, spouse, brother, sister, mom, dad?  If not- WHY?  You don’t have to recite a prayer, or go through motions to develop an intimate relationship with a God that Loves you- you can just have coffee and chat with Him!  And that is incredibly cool!
