In our last email newsletter on December 16th, we had mentioned that we were at 43% of our monthly and outgoing need and we were praying for 50% by the end of the year. We are thrilled to say that God has provided through generous supporters and at the end of December 31st, we reached 51% of our outgoing need and 52% of our monthly need! Thank you to everyone who has prayed or donated towards our ministry through Josiah Venture.
Lee and Phinehas had a successful tour in Europe (20 shows in 21 days!) where they had the opportunity to share about the love of Jesus every night on stage and in interactions. Lee returned home from tour on December 19th and we were blessed to spend time with both of our families for the holidays. His last show with Phinehas will be Saturday, January 21st in Fullerton, CA.
One thing we are looking forward to in 2017 is taking a vision trip to the Czech Republic in order to see an Exit Tour for the first time. We will be visiting the last week in April and will have the opportunity to go through training, see what the school programs are like, and experience the concert at the end of the week. We are excited to be able to see an actual Exit Tour before hitting the ground in Ukraine.
How To Pray
•Monthly Supporters: We know January can typically be a slower time for giving, but we are praying that God would continue to provide as He already has – in big ways! Our prayer in bold faith is to have 100% of our monthly need committed by February.
•Church Partnerships: We already have one financially committed church partnership and two verbally committed church partnerships. We would like to expand our network of churches that are able to support us through prayer, advocacy and giving. Pray that God would provide more church partnerships for us.
Thank you for praying with us as we continue to step out in faith. Your partnership means so much to us – we are incredibly grateful to have a team of supporters behind us in this journey.
