Wow, two weeks today, we fly out for YWAM Kona!! Crazy! We are all super excited about what God has for us in Kona, but at the same time, we are sad to say goodbye to family and friends here in Lynden. And the goodbyes have already begun – we had a tearful goodbye with one of our awesome neighbors today 😦
Our shipping container arrived on Friday, and we have until Sunday night to fill it. We have to be strategic on what we pack in suitcases and what goes in the container, as we won’t receive the container in Kona until late July. And we are doing all this packing while trying to look after Tre, who turned 5 weeks old yesterday.
We are still looking for around 10-15 people to commit to financially supporting our ministry with YWAM on a monthly basis. If you would like more information on how to partner with our family, go to our “Partner with Us” page. If you want to talk about this with us, call Paul at 360-393-8662. We also appreciate your prayer support, especially during this time of transition. Saying goodbye is hard, especially for our kids.
Paul’s parents John & Sonja arrived yesterday. It is so great to have them here with us during this busy time, and fun for them to meet Tre for the first time. Here is a recent pic of Tre, who continues to GROW. He is a big and tall boy 🙂
WOW! You guys are amazing! Christina and I will continue to pray for you and the boys during this incredible transition. You are such an encouraging family to us, and we love you dearly. Jesus is using you and will bless so so many missionaries as you are on support staff with YWAM. We hope to come visit you and spend quality time together, and see little Tre! We love you and are proud of you!
– Shane & Christina
