At the end of every year Erin and I send out a regular newsletter in the mail to family, friends, support and prayer partners. In this letter we do an overview of all that God has been doing in our ministry and family over the course of the year. Below is this year’s letter that we want to share with you and please feel free to share it with others. A big need that we share at the end of the letter is that we are really pushing to get fully funded by the beginning of 2018. Please pray with us that we will reach this goal and please pray about whether or not God would lead you to partner with us. If you feel led to do so you can click on the donate button on the right of this page and it will take you to our FCA donation page. Thank you so much for taking the time to check out this post and if you have any questions let us know!
Last week we shared with everyone that I (Andy) had to have surgery. Last Wednesday, I had out patient surgery for something called a fistula. I won’t got into detail on it, and I don’t recommend that you look up the pictures, but I was in severe pain that really was overwhelming. The good news is that surgery went well, but the problem was bigger than the doctor had hoped and so now I am waiting to meet with the surgeon again later this week. It looks like I will probably have to have a colonoscopy in the near future and then figure out what the next step in this process is. Please pray though that I will be able to heal quickly, that all this pain will be gone for good, and I will be healed enough to help Erin when she has her surgery at the end of the month. Also, please pray for us that we can get some financial aid from the hospital to bring all these bills lower, and as always that we will reach full financial support with FCA. It’s been a very tough couple of weeks, but thank you so much for your prayers and for your continuing prayers!
