Spring Newsleter

Our past few years have been filled with much excitement. Our trip to New Zealand and the birth of our son Elliot are a few; now we anticipate graduation (Sarah from GMU with her Master’s in Education & Andrew from his Physical Therapist Assistant program). Our involvement in both local (Inner cities of Baltimore, D.C., Dayton) and overseas (China, Haiti) outreach is at the core of who we are as a family. We now desire to further our professional training in healthcare and education through Youth with a Mission (YWAM). We both consider YWAM’s Marine Reach an ideal avenue to serve poor and disadvantaged communities while learning and growing as professionals and individuals.
Marine Reach, a maritime ministry, provides free medical care to those who have limited access to it in isolated coastal communities of South East Asia and the Pacific Islands. They offer a discipleship training school (DTS) which serves as the starting point into YWAM. The school is approximately 5 months; 3 months of lecture and 2 months outreach in South East Asia or the Pacific Islands. YWAM has over 1000 operating locations worldwide but the base in Tauranga, New Zealand will best suite our purpose for training and service. The DTS starts August 1, 2011, and will cost a combined total of $12,000 USD. This includes airfare, travel, childcare, classes, outreach, room and board for our entire family. We are planning to contribute $3,000 of our own funds toward this training. We invite you to partner with our family in this endeavor. Thank you so much for your continual friendship, prayers, and encouragement. We will be in touch and keep you informed with our current projects and future plans.
