Dear friends and fellow laborers,
Greetings from Missouri! We have been busy the last few weeks with travel and meetings, and have a pretty busy couple of months upcoming! With that said, we have been praying and discussing things, and have a couple of big announcements.
After our January letter came out, we received word of additional church partners, and also were able to update and adjust our field cost projection, bringing us just under 80% supported! We are prayerfully planning to leave for Romania in August of this year! For us to be properly funded by this time, we need approximately 10 additional church partners! Please, please pray, and perhaps commit to dig deep and partner financially with us as we go to Romania! This crazy world is growing and getting crazier, and we need to get to the field where God has called us! The other big announcement is: I am scheduled to be ordained at our home church in April! Pretty exciting stuff!
In the next couple of months, we are zipping all over the place, from Missouri to Texas, to New York and back to Texas, over to North Carolina, back to Texas, and up to Michigan. This will involve some of the longer trips we have taken, and considering the astonishing vehicle trouble we've had in the past few months, please pray for our travel safety. We are planning to wind down the long-distance trips by June, as we need to be back in New York to get going on paperwork, planning, packing and shipping, and all that fun stuff. Departure expenses are expected to be around $5000, including plane tickets, shipping, visa, and passports. If you would like to give specifically to these one-time costs, you can designate checks through our support address below, or if you prefer, we also have a Paypal account linked to our website, at www.r2rom.com/pct.
Thank you all for your continued prayer and financial support, without which we would not be moving forward.
Serving the King of Kings,
Daniel, Christa, Erin, Joseph, and Jay Reed
