We have prayed, filled out applications, gotten references, prayed, attended a Cross-Cultural Orientation, gone through interviews, prayed, updated passports, filed for work permits and are now officially Global Serve Missioinaries with the Church of the Nazarene! Look, we even have our own web-site: http://web.nazarene.org/goto/Goossens. We still have to wait for the work permit to come through and then apply for our entry visas before we can book our tickets, but things are definitely coming together.
Yay God! We have started our list of prayer partners! (If you want to be added to the list shoot me an email and I will do so firstname.lastname@example.org)
Yay God! We have started to receive donations from people wanting to partner with us and with the plans God has for the people of the South Pacific and Melanesia!
Lord, help us to align ourselves with your plans and your timing. To not only give of ourselves when asked but to also accept help and blessing when they are given to us!
