From Chile to the US and then (hopefully) soon to Uruguay! That is what Dan and Liz Thompson and their family is expecting in upcoming weeks and months. They report:
We traveled from Fort Lauderdale, FL; then to Iowa; then to Michigan; then to Ohio; and finally to West Virginia for a few days. We are thankful for the many homes who showed us wonderful hospitality along the way. We presented our burden for Uruguay and its people in three churches and promoted the Lord’s work in overseas missions.
What a thrill it was to visit with our nephews studying in their respective Bible Colleges along the way and hear about how the Lord is working in and through their lives. God is good! Micah is also doing well. We spent a few days with him, getting to know his friends and enjoying the beauty surrounding Appalachian Bible College. We also enjoyed meeting his pastor and church family. We thank God for answered prayer and his care and concern for Micah in providing a great place to study, godly friends, and a church family who loves the Lord.
After our two week trip, we fell back into a routine of school in the morning for the kids and office work at mission headquarters in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. The mission is receiving more helpers soon and needed some remodeling work done on mission housing. We jumped right into spending most afternoons hanging sheetrock, laying Styrofoam ceiling tiles, and painting baseboards and door frames. We enjoy the manual labor, but especially being a help where needed.
This past week, we filled out our applications for visas to enter Uruguay. As of right now, the country is closed to tourists, but some exceptions are made to special visas like the one we are seeking. Pray that soon, we would have the visas in hand and have the go ahead to buy our plane tickets. We are submissive to the Lord’s timing and trust that He will continue to guide our steps as we lean on His understanding and not our own.
- for the visa applications to be approved so we can buy tickets for mid-May.
- for churches to partner with us.
- for the kids as they finish their school year, that they would do all things as unto the Lord.
- for our walk with the Lord to grow and bear fruit for His glory.
- for Micah and his summer ministry at Alpine Bible Camp.
Thank you for your prayers. We are excited to be your missionaries to Uruguay, South America. Thank you for your part in our ministry through prayer and giving. We count it a privilege to serve the Lord as a family and we expect great things from God working in and through us.
Your missionaries and His servants,
Danny and Liz,
Micah, Matthias, Morgan, and Madeline
