A. The short answer: when I've raised the rest of my support. I would really like to leave for Gramothe (gruh-mott) by September 1st, but I need to raise the remainder of my support before I can leave. At this point I know where 35% of my funds are coming from. I'm so very grateful for the people who have joined Team Gramothe. I feel blessed that they have chosen to partner with me in this ministry, but there are times where I freak out about where the rest of the money is going to come from. I am confident that God has called me to go to Gramothe, and I know he will provide what I need to do what he's called me to do. However, there are still days when I struggle to to trust God because in my human mind it seems impossible to raise all of the support I need by the end of August.

In college I spent a semester on the south side of Chicago at the Christian Center for Urban Studies. While there were many wonderful things about living and studying in Chicago, meeting my good friend Christy was the best part. Here we are in the fall of 2002.
Here I am with one of my best friends in the whole world! Luci and I were bridesmaids in the Shipe wedding in June of 2004. I love this picture, and I love this girl!
What another gorgeous wedding picture! This time I'm with Becca at the Loucks wedding in 2005. I still think the state of Georgia should be closer to Indiana. Then maybe I could spend some time with my friend Becca.

I will be sharing very briefly during the morning services at St. Mark Missionary Church on Sunday August 1st. If you're in the area, you should stop on by! Early service begins at 9 am, and the second service is at 10:30. I'd love to see you there.

My house will be available for rent starting November 1st. Main level has kitchen, living room, 2 bedrooms, and the bathroom. Upstairs has a bedroom and an additional room that can be used as another living room, den, or craft area. It has a full unfinished basement with a washer and small dryer. The basement is perfect for storage, working out, or working on projects. The house is two blocks from Main Street and five from McKinley Avenue, and Bethel College is a quick 10 minute walk away. There are two neighborhood parks within 10 blocks, and the Mishawaka Riverwalk is just a mile away. If you are interested in renting my house, please leave a comment with your phone number or call me if you have my number.

In early June I sent out letters asking people to support my ministry
in Haiti, both in prayer and financially. I'm happy to announce that
Team Gramothe currently has 15 prayer partners and 23% of the financial
support necessary. Wooohooo! Thank you, Jesus!!
It blows me away to see how God is working out the details and providing all that I need. I am so very thankful that others are joining me in this ministry to the village of Gramothe!
