We are heading for Mexico!
Two weeks ago I wrote you an email letting you know how far Amy & I were away from heading to Mexico. Within one week of us praying together for my support, I got it all plus some more! Here’s how it went. Each day, my support went up a bit, some days by a lot, others by a little. But each day it went up. Then on Monday I went past 60% & reached 62%! Tuesday Amy & I found out that we need to get to Texas on February 24th! Wednesday & Thursday I started to tell some friends & let things start soaking in – Amy & I are moving to Mexico! Now I’m starting to plan for my last few weeks in Oregon & travel plans on the way to Colorado. I’ll be leaving Oregon on February 18 or 19th, arriving in Texas on February 24th, and entering Mexico soon after!
It is so amazing to me at how quickly my support went up! It truly is a huge answer to our prayers for these last two years. And it’s an answer at how faithful God is to us, just by listening and responding to us according to His plan & will!
Here’s what my current checklist is looking like: praying, taxes, Mexican car insurance, packing, saying goodbyes, planning for the road trip, praying, getting things fixed on my car, a dentist appointment, and of course there will be some more things that will get added to my checklist!
Thank you to all of you who have been praying for me as I’ve been working on heading to Mexico, and for some of you it’s been almost 2 years! I am so excited at how God has worked through friends, family & believers that I’ve not met to provide for both Amy’s support and mine!
Thank you so much for your prayers. If you have any questions, please let me know!
Heading to Mexico,
Merry Christmas to y’all!
Home for Christmas!
With my plans coming together for moving to Mexico – possibly in February – I am blessed with being able to stay home for Christmas with my family. Last year my family was altogether, but this year my brother won’t be around. He’s currently overseas until March or early Spring. But my parents, sister, sister-in-law, and two of my grandparents will be together! We are excited to just have a laid back holiday with each other. Right now it’s time to go over to Mom & Dad’s for dinner & presents with the grandparents. I made cranberry sauce (for the first time), pumpkin/cheesecake pie, and sweet potatoes!
God’s Perfect Timing
Amy Heckman & I are very close in reaching the required 60% monthly support level. Amy has reached 54% & I’m at 52.6%! How cool & amazing is that!
We received an email last week that we have a church to connect with once we reach Mexico. They are excited to meet us & praying for us! What a blessing is the body of Christ!
This last month we also learned that Glenn & Teo Urquhart – the missionaries whose house we were going to live in for two years – won’t be able to leave Mexico until Summer 2010. That means that we will be getting a different place than what we were expecting. Amy & I are looking forward to seeing how God will provide for us with another place to live in a different neighborhood!
We are also looking to God to see when & how He will be providing the last part of our monthly support. We are both less than $235 away from our monthly goal! Exciting! We are so close to being able to head to Mexico, but we will need to reach 60% before we can set a travel.
I Praise God For…
- my family
- the opportunity to serve Him wherever I am
- the constant provisions in my life
- all of my prayer & financial supporters
Please Pray That…
- my brother will be safe
- the last $235 in monthly support will come in
I want to wish you all a blessed Christmas & a Happy New Year as we continue to remember Christ every day!
The month of October was quite exciting with the leaves changing colors and with a few flakes of snow here in Eastern Oregon. It was also a month in which I was sick quite a bit. After my trip to Florida and Louisiana, I was a bit worn out, and was hit with some sickness. And then last weekend I got the swine flu, but I survived! Now I’m feeling pretty good, just in time for a trip to Denver, tomorrow!
