Hello friends and family!
We are currently gearing up for our first trip as a family back to the USA to reconnect with many of you! Next week we will start making our way over for a 3-pronged trip.
The first week, our family will be spending some much-needed time in Fairfax with JR's side of the family. We have not seen JR's sister's family since July of 2012 and his grandparents from California since January the same year. Debby (JR's mother) will also be joining us after a 16 month gap in visits. Excitement is really building for our reunion!
The second week of our trip, 6 young adults from Peterhead will join us in Fairfax. (If you would like to read more about the plans for the Peterhead Mission Trip to the States/DR, please CLICK HERE.)
The third week, JR and 3 of the Scots will head to the Dominican Republic with a team from Fairfax. At that time, the children and Daisha will head to Arkansas to reconnect with the Stockstill-side of the family. Daisha's sister's family will be meeting up with them in Searcy where Gideon and Naomi will get to meet their youngest cousin for the first time! There is also a plan to head up to Branson and connect with many more Stockstills. :)
Fairfax church of Christ's involvement in our ministry here in Peterhead continues to be the blessing we prayed for from the beginning of our exploration into being full-time, supported missionaries. Far from being just a name on a payroll, we truly feel cared about and supported. Their handling of our fund-raising has lifted a responsibility from our plates that frees us up for more on-the-ground ministry.
Here is a truth that we acknowledge everyday:
We could not be here doing the work we are doing without your love, support, and generosity.
Fairfax is changing on-line giving systems.
For those of you who are already giving:
You will need to go in and create a new account. This system may recognise your e-mail address, it will not know your password.
The process is really straight-forward.
1. Follow link above.
2. Type in your e-mail address in the box provided. (Hit "Continue".)
3. A pop-up box will ask you to either sign in as a "Guest" or "Create an Account".
4. Follow the prompts. :)
If you currently do not contribute to the mission here, but would like to, this is a perfect opportunity to partner with us.
Again, thank you for partnering with us! We hope to see many of you in our up-coming travels.
