I won’t beat around the bush: we’re having a girl! Not long after Isaiah was born, Becca started praying for a little sister. (Becca loves Isaiah, but apparently a little brother just didn’t cut it.) We announced the baby’s gender to Becca on her birthday: she was thrilled. You can watch her reaction at www.jensendimension.org/its-a/. Amy is due on April 13.
Our committed monthly support level is now at 72%. As usual, you can see the breakdown at the bottom of our Praying and Giving page, jarai-in-cambodia.org/pray-give/. Additionally, our start-up fund—the ministry savings required for moving to Cambodia and settling in—has reached 100%.
Because of winter storm Electra, a meeting scheduled in PA for tomorrow (Dec. 15) was rescheduled for Dec. 29. We’ll then hit the ground running in the new year with a different church nearly every week through the end of March.
Thank you for your prayers for us. The Lord has given us safety on the road (many roads!), kept us healthy, given Amy a good pregnancy, encouraged us through fellow believers as we’ve shared our vision, and strengthened our desire for ministry among the Jarai in Cambodia. And we’ve been amazed by how quickly God has connected us with financial partners.
Please pray that God would continue (1) preparing us for our transition to Cambodia, (2) connecting us with individual and church partners, and (3) giving Amy and Baby Girl health and safety. We’re praying that God would bring our monthly support to 100% by early spring so that we can depart for Cambodia in early summer. Would you join us in praying for that?
