From Fear to Faith

We are on our way to Switzerland in 12 days, a place far different than where we are, or where we hope to land in the near future. Literally, land, as in a helicopter. Our hearts are heavy for people in the reaches of these mountainous jungles who have no hope, who live in fear. While we are in Switzerland, where Helimission is headquartered, we will be deciding (as will HM) if this IS the path the Lord has for our family.

We ourselves have been taken from fear to faith, and live abundantly because of His grace. We are aching to share that message with people who've never been given the hope of living free in the Name of Jesus Christ. It's a scary proposition, moving your family to a completely foreign, distant and confusing land. There could be a lot to be afraid of, IF we didn't live on faith.

For we walk (and fly, and parent, and share hope with others) by faith, not by sight....
2 Corinthians 5:7

Please pray with us over the next month - for wisdom and courage, and enduring faith!

Michael and Fawn

P.S. We give God ALL the glory in reporting that we are fully funded for our trip. He has worked through His people again! Thank-you for partnering with Him and with us. May He bless you abundantly!

Wow. God is so good. ALL the time. I mean the kind of "good" that is perfect and sovereign and loving, not the kind of "good" where we always feel happy. There is no other peace like the serenity that comes from knowing that He is always working and providing and Fathering us.

At a little under three weeks to go, we are almost at full support for our missions training/decision trip to Switzerland! THANK-YOU! We still need about $750 (out of $4000). If you have been waiting (or time just moved too fast!), now is a good time to help us get fully funded.

We praise God for you! We cannot do this without you allowing Him to work through you.
