Changes for our Family

Dear Friends,

We wanted to share with you what has been on our hearts recently.

Over the last couple of months we have been praying about our future in Mozambique. We have spent time in prayer, time fasting and sought counsel from our church and mission leadership. It has been an emotional time and a difficult decision to make but we have felt strongly that the Lord has said it is time for us to remain in the US. Honestly, we do not know what the future holds for us but we do know that we can trust the Father and that He only wants HIS good for us. We have had several wonderful yet really difficult years serving in Mozambique. We have not always shared the heart ache and rough times as it wasn't necessarily the right time or place. Part of our heart always remains in Africa and we do not know if the Lord will have us return one day. We will treasure our time there and will miss our friends and ministry work greatly. We appreciate your constant support, love, and prayers that have made it possible for us to serve. Your faithfulness has made a difference in our lives and in the lives of those we were able to reach in Mozambique.  

We have resigned from our mission, effective December 26th. We will be able to receive funds until then to help us make the transition and set-up our new home. We would appreciate your continued support until then if possible. Our plan is to remain in NH and settle near the Concord area. Marc has been offered his old position back at Concord Coach bus company with a pay increase which is such a blessing. Andrea will stay at home with the boys and continue to home school them. We plan to attend our sending church, Grace Capital Church in Pembroke and get involved as we feel the Lord leading. We would appreciate your prayers as we transition back into life here in the US. We need God's wisdom in decisions, healing from hurt, hope for the future, provision for our needs, and a sensitivity to His leading. God is so good and faithful and has always been more than enough for our every need. For the future we are open to wherever He leads and desire to be obedient above all else. 

We have been so blessed and are so grateful for your commitment to us.
