We are so close to departure! Brice leaves Dec 27th to get to St. Vincent and battle with customs. Amanda & kids will follow Dec 31st. We ask for your prayers -
- As Brice drives the things this week to Miami and then as he talks to customs officials that they would be gracious and not overcharge, and so finances can be used on ministering there.
-For the students as for most of them this is their first Christmas away from home.
-For the staff as they continue to lead & the changes for our team with a new director and family coming on board
-Praise for a great & busy, joy filled extended time in the states to visit churches here and talk to more churches about partnering with WISE and the chance to see family and friends and also be with OCC family and students.
-Praise for the 2 groups that came & helped do so much for our new home (our first one that is ours with our own things in it since we married!) from putting in the ceiling to water to everything!
-Praise as we miss Haiti and our friends too but the new family God brought there and the families already there we see God using them in huge ways of service there & are so thankful to see God's love being shown all over in this big family for Him.
- For the graduates of WISE that are ministering all over.
- For our kids as we transition countries…Naiyah is so excited to meet her new friends and have a bunk bed. Beckett (we hear this is a stage for 2 year olds) is having a hard time with not being in the same place and routine and meeting new people constantly. Paxson of course is just enjoying eating and being held.
Thanks for all your help as we transition through support, prayers, & encouragement.
Brice & Amanda
Here is a picture of our new home! Groups, WISE staff & students have helped get it ready! We are so thankful and hope you can come visit & enjoy it too! The upstairs level is the part we will live in.
Here is the beautiful country we are moving to this month!
