Quite a bit has happened since our survey trip in March. Here's the quick version.
The Sunday after returning from our Survey Trip, the church called Steve Rutherford to be the new pastor of Calvary Baptist Church. God has worked wonders in both of our lives. He was able to find a house and get moved in within following week or so. The way he got that house is a story all to itself.
I turned the pastorate over to him in the morning service on April 9, and then on the evening of April 16 (Easter Sunday), Calvary voted to become our sending church. We were able to make a couple of appointments in April to share the work in France. Then, on April 30, the church sent us out on full time deputation.
Throughout the month of May, God has led two churches to partner with us monthly, and has provided nearly half of the money needed for language school. I look forward to seeing how God continues to provide as we prepare to go to France.
