“A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step” is a common saying that originated from a famous Chinese proverb. The quotation is from Chapter 64 of the Tao Te Ching ascribed to Laozi. This saying teaches that even the longest and most difficult ventures have a starting point; something which only begins with one first step.
Today starts the official countdown for departing for ministry in the Czech Republic!
While it has been over a year since we traveled to Littleton, CO for our orientation and appointment with WorldVenture, today feels like a first step in many ways.
Over the course of 2017 we have created the core of our Sender’s Team, added prayer partners, accepted financial supporters, and gained two sending churches: Eastwind Community Church and Cole Community Church. Each of these steps have brought us closer to our goal and we realize that God has indeed answered many prayers!
We are aiming to arrive in January 2019, before the semester starts, for language courses.
We’ve recently shifted our focus to partner development and will be meeting with individuals, couples, and groups to share our story and invite others to invest in this kingdom building endeavor in the Czech Republic. The coming year is an incredibly important part of the process for preparing ourselves for long-term ministry in the field… another step of many!
