We are so excited to be serving in Malawi. We invite you to take this journey with us. Keep the beautiful people of Malawi in your prayers, and us too.

Christmas in Illinois

Christmas will be very different next year. We hope. There’ll be no white Christmas, no stockings hung by the chimney with care, no Christmas lights or hot chocolate and we can’t wait! Yes, we’ll miss our families and holiday traditions that bring back special childhood memories but nothing can compare to obeying our Lord and telling others in Malawi why Jesus came to earth as a baby.

We want to thank the Coopers for meeting with us during this busy holiday season. Thank you for the encouragement and prayers! You both are a huge blessing. We are also excited to share that our transportation fund (airplane tickets etc.) is getting there! God is faithful! We will be able to purchase tickets to Malawi when our monthly support reaches 80%. Right now our monthly support is at 40%. Thank you to all who are supporting us financially and in prayer. We also have had many people ask to be on our prayer team which is so encouraging and needed. If anyone is interested in being on our “weekly warriors prayer team” please just let us know so we can get you some information and a calendar.

Please pray for us as we...

continue to raise prayer and financial support

raise Lyzee to follow after God

prepare spiritually for leading the discipleship ministry in Blantyre.

Thank you all and Happy New Year!!!
