Week #8 Verse and an Update

25 Sep

Ephesians 5:1-2 “Be imitators of God, therefore, as dearly loved children and live a life of love, Just as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us as a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God.”

When Josh and I got engaged I wanted to make sure that our wedding was based on the Bible and Biblical truths.  This was the verse that we chose to base our wedding on.  We chose this verse because we want to live lives that show Jesus through the way we speak and the way we act.  We know that we are blessed to have been saved by our Savior who gave himself up for us. We chose to memorize this verse at this time as a reminder of the lives we want to display to everyone we meet. And as a reminder that we are only his children because of the sacrifice that Jesus made for us.

An Update:

Today we got immunized! We got three more shots and started a round of oral medicines. We will have to get one more immunization right before we leave, but it isn’t 100% necessary so basically we could leave tomorrow and be okay!

Many of you have asked and we wanted to let everyone know that our trip is still on.  Harvesters has not experienced any problems due to the recent rioting, so we are scheduled to go as planned on October 14th which is less than 3 weeks away!

We have also raised slightly over $4,000 of the $7,000 that we will need for South Sudan.  We are still praying that God will bring full funding for our trip and we believe he will.

Thank you all for your support!  It’s getting close!
