Heading to Nicaragua!!!

Dear Family and Friends;

As I leave for Nicaragua today, I was reminded of Ephesians 6:12 “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” After praying we decided that only I (Will) would go on this trip to Nicaragua, while Lori and the boys stay at home. We are looking forward to some huge things that God is going to be doing while I am in Nicaragua.

I’m writing you to ask you if you would keep our family in prayer over the next 7 days. Two weeks ago, one of our cars broke down. Luckily we have two cars so we have been able to drive our second car. However, last night we got a flat tire. It was one of those awesome times where you get to change the tire in the rain! So after one of our friends had come to help us, the spare donut tire got a flat 1/2 a mile down the road. Luckily he was still following us and was able to take us home. I really felt calm the whole time, which, as we all know is not the way most of us want to respond in those times. Today I have the added pleasure of getting a new tire for the car in addition to my last minute preparations before leaving for Nicaragua at 4.

So we need prayer! I will be gone from today, November 8th, until next Tuesday, November 16th. Please be praying for me and my family. Pray for safety & health as I travel to and from Nicaragua, for Lori and the boys at home that they would be safe, for Lori to have a peaceful week with the boys with extra patience, healing for Liam as he has had a cough for a few days now, and for Lori to not get to sick this week from her pregnancy (or anything else!).

Thank you for all your prayers, we know that you support us so much during these times of travel and separation.

Psalm 71:14 “But as for me, I will always have hope; I will praise you more and more.”

God Bless!

Will, Lori, Eli and Liam
