Hope For The Nations Church on Yakama

We had a great time at the First Nations Conference back in March. One of the couples we met are Frank & Mary East. Today we had the privilege of sharing at the church they pastor on the Yakama Reservation in Toppenish, WA. Their church blessed us financially, but we are especially excited about the relationship we are developing with them. Frank & Mary have pastored native peoples for over 20 years and have a lot of wisdom to share regarding the challenges we will soon face reaching out to the indigenous people of Ecuador.

Foursquare Missions Intensive

As part of our continuing appointment process with FMI, we were asked to complete a number of different tasks to help prepare us for the transition to Ecuador. One of those tasks was to attend a Missions Intensive. We just completed this eight-day training in Federal Way, WA. This was a wonderful time where we learned a tremendous amount, made some wonderful new friends, and were able to visit friends & family since the training was at our former church. We see the hand of God orchestrating so many things with regards to our preparation. We can't wait to see what God has in store next!
