I (Blake) will be heading to the U.S. at the end of this week. It's a quick trip just to make some contacts, raise some money, and pave the way for our family trip to the U.S. this fall (Autumn for you Europeans). We'll be there for a couple of months replenishing our ministry funds. Technically, our first term has ended and we should begin itinerating (raising more money). However, due to visa rules in Ireland, we won't be taking a typical full itineration cycle.
Please be in prayer for us. The end of a term naturally coincides with the diminishing of funds. We are praying for great favour, opportunity, and provision financially. For the moment, please pray specifically for my travel to Oklahoma and the connections I will make there. Pray for wisdom in vision casting and new, innovative ideas for raising funds.
God has always provided and will continue to provide. Let me be clear, we are not in a state of fear or anxiety. This is a very natural season for missionaries, and it is coming exactly when we expected it to come. We have been so blessed by our amazing team of supporters, and we are grateful for your continued partnership. We're also so excited to see our team increase with new supporters in the year to come.
Thank you so much for all your prayers and support. Together we are making a difference in the lives of college students in Ireland.
