February 2011 – Fundraising Update & Ultramarathon

Greetings Family, Friends, & Colleagues,

Apart from our lives of preparation for missions work, there is another bit of news.

I (Nick) have been training hard for my longest race ever, 50km (31 miles)!!! Running brings me great joy and a chance to be in the beauty of nature on the winter trails. I successfully completed this trail race on February 12th in just under 6 hours,along with two good friends!

Per a missions update, our focus on relationship and partner-building is increasing, along with an awareness of God’s provisions around us. Many of you have decided to join in the work we will be doing and have made financial commitments to health development in the Dominican Republic. THANK YOU!  Currently we have 70% of our ministry budget funded. With about $10,000 remaining, we are grateful for your ongoing support, and for new supporters. We project that we may be able to leave the country during the last 2 weeks of May or first week of June.

We have many preparations left to do. Please pray for growth in our awareness of God in the details of this transition.

We’ll let you know as our plans unfold!  In Peace,

Nick & Laurie
