Living Life in the DR

Moving Right Along….Literally!!

Yesterday we purchased our one-way tickets to the Dominican Republic! Talk about things getting real! We are so excited to be this close to moving but also realize that we have a lot to do over the next few months! We have had a slight change of plans on our leave date. We originally planned to leave June 1st but our support has been coming in faster than we ever expected so we’ve moved the date up a bit to May 12th! That’s less than 3 months away! Talk about a small panic attack  :)

Please keep us in your prayers over the next few months as we prepare for the move. We have a lot of packing, selling and storing to do. We will be putting our house on the market in about a month, so please pray that God sends the right buyer along. (If you are looking for a home, let us know!) We also have our residency paperwork to complete, passports to get for the girls, shots, medical appointments and more. Please pray for sanity for all of us as we prepare for this big, but exciting change in our lives!!

By our leave date (May 12th), we need to be at 85% of our reoccurring monthly income. (Although we would love to be at 100%!)  We currently stand at 77%. We've set a goal to be at 80% by the end of February. 

We also stand at 100% of our start-up costs! God is so faithful to provide! We are so thankful for all the prayers and support we have already received and ask that you prayerfully consider joining us on this journey!

Gabe’s Trip to the DR 

Gabe just returned from a week long work trip to Freedom. He went with a group of 13 people. It was really exciting for Gabe to be able to reconnect with everyone down there. It reconfirmed our calling from God to be a part of this team. He really did not want to come back!  He would of much preferred the girls and I join him down there. :) (The fact that it was about 80 degrees warmer down there might have played a small role in him not wanting to come back!) 

While down there, Gabe worked on an exciting project…..our new home! Freedom is currently building an 8-unit apartment building. The apartments will house all 5 missionary families, work teams and interns. We are very excited that we will soon be able to live on the Freedom Campus! We currently have a $34,000 match toward our building project. We have until February 28th to double it up! If you are interested in giving, you can visit to donate.
Working on our new home!
