For the rest of this year, we have a singular focus:
GET TO MADRID!
If you have been following us, you know that July was supposed to be the month of our big move to Madrid. You likely also know that while our timeline has changed, our plans have not!
Nate’s employment at County Line Church, where he has served for 13 years, will come to an end on July 31. In May, Stacy finished her 5th year as the school nurse at Lakewood Park. These transitions signify a big step for us, as one season has ended and another begins!
As we approach the new finish line here in the USA, we are making a final push to get to 100% funded so that we can leave! As with many ministry positions around the world, our positions are largely funded through fellow believers who commit to partner with us in ministry by providing the funds to do so!
30 church partners ~ 30 individual/family partners ~
30% more in ongoing funding
The great news is that we are already two-thirds of the way to our goal!
We currently have commitments from 20 church partners and 20 individual/family partners, and our ongoing funding is at 70%! These partnerships will allow us to facilitate effective ministry as we walk alongside local churches throughout Europe and the Middle East.
Ultimately our goal is to be 100% funded with a total of 30 church partners and 30 individual/family partners. We believe we’ll get there…and then we will finally say, “VAMOS!” (“LET’S GO!”)
ONE-TIME GIFTS: Many of you have already contributed with one time gifts, most of which came in at the end of 2019 through the matching gift campaign. For that we continue to be grateful and in awe of the support that came around us! Those one-time gifts have been necessary to help meet our “start-up budget” goals, which allows us to finish our time in the United States, receive training, move to Spain, and set up our home and field office.
MONTHLY/RECURRING GIFTS: These commitments to give are vital in order for us to live in Madrid and work throughout Europe and the Middle East. Recurring gifts allow us to meet our monthly living and ministry expenses. We need to be 100% funded in order for us to move to Spain.
Partner With Us?
The mission and the work is too big for us to do this alone. We need ministry partners, like you, to journey with us along the way. Will you help us reach these goals? Will you make a commitment for a recurring gift? Can we count on you to get us to Madrid?
If so, click HERE and select the “Give Now” button to make a commitment online today! You will have options for the start date and frequency of your financial commitment. Some partners have already started fulfilling their commitments, while others have indicated they would like to begin in 2021. If you have any questions or issues in this process, please feel free to contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
ALREADY A PARTNER?
We are so thankful for you and your partnership. Our family could not have gotten this far without you! Maybe you know others who have a heart for Europe, the Middle East, churches and pastors. We would love the opportunity to connect with them to talk about all the things happening in our region.
Nate, Stacy, and Family
