Miami

(Are you looking for a link to GIVE? It’s right here. We cannot express in mere black and white how humbled we are by your obedience to the Lord in this way.
Thank You doesn’t cut it but Thank You anyway.)

We’re moving to Miami! from William H. Wallace II on Vimeo.

Hi friends! Did you watch that video? It’s helpful, but if you like words, and knowing all the things, I suggest these posts:

Our. Big. News. – Our Miami announcement and God’s plan for our family to join InnerCHANGE, a Christian order among the poor. InnerCHANGE communities of missionaries live in marginalized neighborhoods around the world – places most people want to avoid or ignore. We seek to live out the good news of Jesus among the poor, both with words and deeds.

When God Writes the Storyyou don’t always get a preview copy. If God had let me proofread, a lot of things would have gone differently. I would have edited out the very things that have prepared us for this good work He arranged beforehand.

Let’s get the awkward on the table: We are “self-supported” missionaries. That term is really a misnomer since A.) it is God who sustains and supports us in every way, financial included and B.) We are raising all of our personal support, so none of it actually comes from “self.”

God has invited us to GO, and maybe He is inviting you to SEND? What an honor for us both.

There are two ways you can send us:

One, you can give to CRM for our work in Coconut Grove. We are seeking monthly commitments and one time gifts to get us onto the field ASAP.

If you feel a tug on your heart to partner with us, pray over what that amount might be and ask the Lord to guide your decision. After all, you’re giving it to Him.

{Note: CRM is our “parent” organization, which means they manage all of our funds, and is why you are giving on the CRM website. CRM “empowers leaders to go to the unreached and unchurched, bring transformation among the poor, and mobilize the Church for mission…so that disciples are made among the nations.” Good stuff.}

Two, you can pray for us. The next few months are packed full of practical and logistical tasks that at times (most times) leave me feeling overwhelmed!

Pray that our family would be unified in these tasks and we would not become stressed or anxious about them.

Pray for Ministry Partners (aka financial supporters) who desire to see the Kingdom come in the inner-city and families preserved among the broken because of the scandalous grace of God and the work of Jesus on the Cross.

Pray for buyers for our house. We’ve decided to sell it instead of rent it.

Pray we will find a four bedroom home in our new neighborhood. They are not common but we really believe our introvert (Moses) needs his own space:-)

Pray for unwavering trust as we are likely to encounter attacks from the enemy in an attempt to throw us off course. Pray for perseverance to hold fast to what the Lord is calling us to. UPDATE: Yes. This. We’re on the enemy’s hit list. Thank you for praying.

Thank you friends! We are grateful for you!

Lindsy for us All.
