To kick off our "Fundraising Tour", one of our partner churches in Hawaii flew us out there to spend about two weeks sharing about the work in Portugal. We also had the opportunity to meet up with several other people and church pastors and share our heart and vision for reaching the Portuguese. We do this in hopes of creating more partnerships in which followers of Christ will have a passion for investing in the lives of the Portuguese, as well as investing in the lives of those within their own communities.
After that, we flew into East Tennessee. We had a nice time visiting with family as well as visiting and meeting up with people who have committed to giving and partnering with us as well as meeting up with others who have shown interest in partnering with us.
Now, we are in Middle Tennessee until the end of this month. For about a week and a half straight, we have multiple meetings set up per day as we meet with people who have committed to giving and partnering with us as well as with people who have shown interest in partnering with us.
We are incredibly thankful for the opportunity to meet up with so many and to, subsequently, share about what is happening in Portugal. All this traveling has been a bit exhausting, but this is our life now! We are grateful to the Lord to be where we are at.
