Ministry Update

In June and July we were blessed with the opportunity to take a Sabbatical. After eleven and a half years on the mission field, our board agreed that it would be beneficial for us to slow down and rest a little.  During our Sabbatical we had the opportunity to go back to the Midwest and spend a week at church camp. It was so refreshing to spend time with our friends in ministry. Two weeks of camp blessed us with a $3,000 offering. After camp we were able to spend some time with family in Iowa and Nebraska.

Back in Arizona we were able to slow down and focus on our relationship with God and with our kids. Tory was able to go up into the mountains a couple of times to read, pray and journal. It was a much needed time of refreshing.

During the end of July we hosted one short-term ministry team from Community Church Big Bear in Big Bear Lake, California. First Baptist Church in Scottsdale blessed us with their VBS curriculum and supplies and the team from Big Bear helped us provide a VBS experience for the kids in Moonbase. The team also painted the home of an elderly gentleman who recently lost his wife of 35 years. We were able to serve him and spend time being Jesus with skin on for this hurting man.
