Why we must Go!
"For “Everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved. But how can they call on Him to save them unless they believe in Him? And how can they believe in Him if they have never heard about Him? And how can they hear about Him unless someone tells them?" Rom. 10:13-14
In the world today there are approximately 7,000 languages and dialects. Of those, 2,200 languages do not have one single verse of Scripture. That means 350,000,000 people have no way of knowing John 3:16. (To put that in perspective: if you laid those 350 million people head to toe around the equator of the earth, they would wrap around it over 14 times)
That breaks the heart of God! That breaks our heart too! And I hope it breaks your heart as well!
Salvation has been offered to every one of those 350 million, but how can they be saved unless "someone tells them?" Lindsey and I want to follow God into the darkness of Guyana, South America to work with the Carib people. The Carib people are an unreached people group living on the Guyana/Venezuela border. We will be translating 30-50 stories from the Bible into the Carib language. They will be able to hear of the saving love of God for the first time!!!!!!!
Please partner with us!
1. We need a lot of prayer. You can click the link at the top of this page and sign up to be a prayer partner. Remember, "...The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and wonderful results." James 5:16
2. We need financial support. You can click the link at the top to sign up to be a financial supporter. We have to raise 100% of our support before we can go to Guyana. This is a huge task but the great thing is, OUR GOD IS BIGGER!
3. If you feel God leading you to become a missionary, we would love to talk and pray with you. Don't just settle for the American Dream, God's dream awaits those who seek Him.
In short, we must go! God has put the call on us and we are answering! Thank you for being apart of this special time in our lives!
