Well, we made it through our first full week of fundraising. Yay!
SO much happened this week. Our plans to go to the Dominican Republic as full time missionaries are now public. We have had a lot of questions, some tears, and we are SO relieved to finally feel like we can talk to people freely about what God has been doing in our life. We have had an outpouring of support from both old friends and new, and even people we barely know. It has been such a blessing!
The number one question we are being asked is when we are planning on moving. The answer is that we will go as soon as we are fully supported. It is hard to be in a waiting place because a big part of our hearts are already there. We keep reminding ourselves that this is a marathon, not a sprint. Our faith is growing through this process and that in and of itself is worth being excited about.
After 7 days of officially fundraising we are at 2.85% funded. That number definitely needs to grow, but does put us on track with where we need to be to get there by our goal! Thank you, God! And thank you SO MUCH to our wonderful supporters. When I think of you, my heart feels full because the investment you are making is not in the Suon family but in the building of God’s Kingdom. PRAISE HIM! 🙂
We are setting a mini-goal! We would like to be at 5% by my birthday, which is February 4th… this Thursday.
We would love for you to prayerfully consider supporting the life-changing work that is being done in the Dominican Republic.

“Therefore, since we have so great a cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us also lay aside every encumbrance and the sin which so easily entangles us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of Father.” Hebrews 12:1,2
