I’m so excited to be able to share that I’ll be heading back to Fort Hope in May 2017!
We’re planning a full roster of service, training sessions, and more as we look forward to building on what we shared last year.
In the works is a weekend-long marriage conference, parenting sessions and Sunday School teacher training. I can’t wait to see what God has planned for this spring!
Last year we were able to get to know many of the moms teens, and children who live in Fort Hope. This year, we’re hoping to expand and get to know some of the dads as well, as we work towards family-centered ministry and programming.
While we prepare, we’ll participate in cultural training, evangelism training, and more as we prepare ourselves spiritually, mentally, emotionally and physically to serve in this northern remote community.
Our team will consist of parenting experts, marriage counselors, mental health and psychology professionals. My role this year will likely consist mainly of practical support as we facilitate the programming for each of the various components.
As we prepare, I’m planning on fundraising to cover the costs of my airfare, food and accommodation. While costs haven’t been confirmed yet, the total should be around $1000. To raise those funds, I’ll be running an online yard sale (click here to see what’s for sale!) and accepting donations (here).
Most importantly, I’d like to ask for your prayer support as we head north. Please pray for God’s direction in our planning and preparations, and for His guidance and safety as we travel north!
