What an incredible year. Amazing. And more to come. So this is what they meant when they said growing up was like getting on a fast train that never stops...
Here is us, and here is what we have planned:
November 2013: Got married
December 2013: Home for Christmas
January 2014: Job hunting
February: first Valentine’s day
March: Commissioned as missionaries, married in Indy and Connecticut
April: SC training in Cali
May: Caid had knee surgery
June: Trek for Transportation
July: Teaching at USF Tampa
August: State Fair summer fun
September: 9 godchildren!
November: Baby Ferguson in June 2015
We have had the sweetest first year of marriage, representing Living Stones to the USA churches, and working with different clients who have special needs. It has been wonderful to live so close to family and be able to travel to Connecticut, Cali, Florida, and back to Brazil. Caid is graduating (on the president’s list) with his degree (Urban Leadership) early 2015. Rachel is growing a baby, and we are planning to move to Brazil the end of March 2015. Caid will teach music and work with sports and Living Stones. Rachel will be writing and networking when not having a baby In June.
We are working on raising $10,000 for airfare, birthing expenses, and basic relocation costs. AMAZING UPDATE: almost $7,000 has come in!
We are also asking for a small group of faithful monthly supporters, who feel called to minister with us. We need $1,000 more a month for basic living costs.
AMAZING UPDATE: $500 monthly has been promised!
Please let us know if you would like us to come and share about Brazil and what God is doing to your small group or church!
