"We're patient God...but please hurry!" | Ordinary Missionaries


Dec 29, 2017 Boys Academy, School


Feliz Año Nuevo!

This ministry has EXPLODED over the last 2 years. We’ve gone through a lot of change and refinement but one thing has stayed the same, we’re here to disciple boys to be men of God. Our middle school now has 14 boys PLUS we have 35 boys and girls on scholarship to two different middle schools.

The new scholarship kids are in “summer school” preparing for the 7th grade. Most kids graduated from the 6th grade at a 3rd or 4th grade level so we’re working hard to get them caught up!

Every morning they’re here, I pray with them and then they write in their journals. They write to God. We’re keeping it simple. I’m teaching them to know and talk with God. I wish you could be here for that. I wish you could read and hear their prayers.

We’re inching forward with our adoption. We’re trying to be patient but we also realize that every month, every year that goes by, is time that we’ll never get back with them. Can I be honest? It’s heartbreaking.

We spent four days with the “little’s” over Christmas! IT WAS AWESOME AND CRAZY AT THE SAME TIME. By day three, we already had some routines and it just felt RIGHT. “We’re patient God…but please hurry!” Their next court date is February 14th. Perfect date right??? Please put it on your calendar to pray with us.

We would love to hear from you. Seriously. Let’s set a Skype date! Even 15 minutes. We want to hear about YOUR world!   Reply to this email and let’s get it set up.

We realize this is God’s ministry and you and I get to be a part of it. Thank you for standing with us. Thank you for your prayers. Thank you for your encouragement. And thank you for your love. We love you right back.

As we race out of 2017, would you consider making and end-of-the-year donation to Ordinary Missionaries?  CLICK HERE for our current ministry needs. In order to get a 2017 tax deduction, donations must be made by 12am, December 31st.

((Are you replying to this email to set up a Skype date???))
