Yard Sales are a BLAST!!!

Hello fine people!
Just wanted to say two things:

1. Our yard sale and craft sale (and bake sale!) yesterday was SO much fun and so awesome and hugely successful by my estimation. God is so incredibly gracious to us and the sale raised $1,000 for our Zambia fund!!! I'm not kidding!

2. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU! to all of the generous people from Oikos and beyond who donated tons of great stuff to this sale to make it worthwhile. And a special thank you to the folks who got down and dirty helping me set out tables and all the STUFF that we had to sell. You guys are the best and I have had to choke back the tears over and over again to see how all of you love us and care for us, but more than that, how you love the Lord! Thank you!

Postcard Update

Hello, dear Friends!

Many people have been asking us how our support-raising is going and what our next steps are. Here is a quick update.

First, our support-raising is going well and many people have given generously over these last months.

Thank you so much! Every bit counts!

* We have 22% of our outgoing expenses raised.

* We have 9 sponsors who have pledged 10% of our monthly budget. If you would like more information about becoming a monthly sponsor, please contact us.

We must reach 100% before we can leave for Zambia and we are excited to see how God will fill that need.

Second, we will be traveling along the west coast in October to network, as well as visit friends and family. Then, it’s off to Mission Training International in Colorado for three weeks of valuable pre-field training for our family.

Please pray that God will use this time of traveling and training to continue to prepare us for our ministry in Lusaka, Zambia. God bless you!

ACTION Zambia Ministries Overview

Hi Huckablog followers. We have so much going on right now it's amazing. We're preparing for our 6+week road trip to Palmer Lake, CO for our 3-week cross cultural living training at MTI. We're hoping to see many friends and some family along the way. We're plugging away on our Perspectives coursework on missions. We're also super excited that our pastor, Pete and two other guys from our church are headed to Lusaka, Zambia next month to see AZ's ministries and do some re-con for a future Oikos short-term team. So, starting next week I'll be posting overviews of AZ's various ministries. Stay tuned.
