We are thrilled to announce that Lighthouse Baptist Church (Newark, DE) officially voted last night to become our sending church. We are so glad to partner with a ministry that has been such an important part of our lives.
For those unfamiliar with what this means, Lighthouse Baptist Church takes on the following vital roles:
- Commissioning us for ministry in the Philippines under their authority as a local body of believers (see Acts 13:1-3 to find the pattern for this in Scripture)
- Providing accountability to our family
- Offering guidance during the period of raising support and once we reach the field
- Supporting us in every possible way (spiritually through prayer / physically through financial giving / emotionally through much needed contact and encouragement)
We could not be more excited to partner with Lighthouse for this next chapter in our lives. A special thanks to Pastor Tobe Witmer for his guidance and support during this time. And thank you to the dear folks at LBC who have been like family to us from the moment we arrived 14+ years ago.
Please take a moment to check out the back of our prayer card we are now able to officially release. And be sure to check out our website for updates.
