Welcome to the Jungle!

Hello friends and family!

A lot has happened since our last newsletter and post on our website. We wanted to give you an update now that we have satellite internet up and running here in the jungle.

   David in the plane

We are blessed to have Hannah’s parents here for a visit and to meet their grandson, Nicholas.

Mom, Dad, and Nicholas

First of all, thank you all for your kind words and congratulations in regards to our son, Nicholas. He is 6 weeks old and continues to grow! We are so blessed to have this little boy. He has adapted well to being a missionary kid in the jungles of Honduras. We praise the Lord for his health and sweet spirit. He has started smiling, cooing more, and loves cuddles from mommy and daddy. We feel like our hearts will burst at times because of the love we have for him. Hannah’s parents are here in Honduras May 15th-25th to visit and meet their new grandson. We are so happy to have them here after almost 5 months of not seeing them. We are enjoying our time together as a family.

Nicholas

Chester is doing wonderful here. He is such a great addition to our family. David has been training him on how to clear the runway with cattle and other animals. He is also a wonderful guard dog. He is very protective of Nicholas and myself especially.

We were able to have our first construction team here in Rus Rus April 25th- May 7th. It was a success. A huge thank you to the Wiles who did most of the hosting as David and I are trying to get settled in here. We are so thankful for all that the Wiles have done for us to make this such a good transition. The construction team completed the ceiling in our home, re did all the screens on all the windows (a big project), some welding projects at our home and the hangar, lots of cleaning, and started prepping the walls for painting. Next up on our list is to paint, which Hannah’s parents have been helping with. Once we have painted we will be ready to move in. We are currently living on the other side of the duplex as we wait. We are thankful to have the other side to live in while we wait for our side to be completed.

Our construction team did an excellent job redoing our ceiling. ceiling

David has been flying a lot with Wes and building more experience with the jungle air strips. Pray for wisdom and patience as he gets checked out on each one. He did do his first flight with just Nicholas and I to the city and did a wonderful job. We praise the Lord for how he has gifted David as a pilot and how he can use this gift to serve the Lord here.

David and Wes in Ahuas

David and Wes flew to Ahuas, a nearby village, for flight practice and to get an airplane part. They were able to catch up with some MMS guys from the U.S.

We will be helping to host a medical team, June 5th-12th, with the Wiles. Please pray God would use this team greatly and many would be helped at the hospital. People will come to be seen from various villages and even from Nicaragua, 5 miles away.

We are looking forward to getting more involved with the people in ministry once things settle down and our home is up and running. We are ready to jump in, but know we have to be patient during this season as we adjust. Pray for us as we continue to adjust to the heat and humidity, living in the jungle which is a lot more work with basic housekeeping, and just being away from our family. We truly believe these people here are going to become a part of our family. We are excited to minister to them.

Praises:

~ We praise the Lord for safety and protection every time we are in the airplane and for the safety he has given us here in our new home.
~ We praise the Lord for good health for our family with all of the transitions we have had.

Prayer Request:

~ Please continue to pray for us as we are still going through the residency process and in the process of getting a passport and more legal paperwork for Nicholas. It’s a long process.
~ Pray for the upcoming medical team coming June 5th-12th. That we would all be the hands and feet of Jesus as we minister to these people.
~ Pray for strength and endurance for ourselves and the Wiles as it has been a busy few months and will continue to be busy until we get settled in.
~ Pray for David as he continues to get more experience flying on different village air strips.

We hope all of you are doing well. Thank you for your continued prayers and financial support. Thank you for believing in what God has called us to do. We are humbled that God chooses to use us.

Much love and blessings,

David, Hannah and Nicholas Mora

Pressing Forward

Hello friends and family!

Things continue to progress and go well here in La Ceiba. One note of praise is we are officially finished with language school. We were able to complete 3 months and it feels great to be finished. Hannah isn’t completely fluent yet, but is able to defend herself when she is out and about, which was the main goal. She will continue to learn and work on her Spanish as we move to Rus Rus. Next order of business is for baby boy to make his appearance. (39 weeks on Monday and due April 11th) After he has been born here in the city, we hope to leave in the week or two following to the jungle. We cannot wait to get into our new jungle home and start helping Wes and Denise out in Rus Rus. Our construction team is scheduled to come April 25th- May 7th. We can’t wait to see all of them. 🙂

The month of March has been very busy for us. We were able to witness our first Honduran baptism with the local church here. We continue to enjoy fellowship with the believers in this church and will miss them greatly once we leave La Ceiba. We hope to come back and visit occasionally. We are excited about getting involved in the local church there in Rus Rus.

river

We’ve enjoyed going to the river with some of our church friends many times. These believers have included us in their family lunches and events, which has made us feel so welcome.

baby shower

We were also blessed with our 3rd baby shower. These people don’t have much, but they give all they have for others. It blessed our hearts so much that they wanted to do this for us. Our little boy is already SO loved!

fathers

They pulled David from the audience and made him stand with the other fathers. 🙂 He is pictured on the far right side.

fathers day lunch

We had the opportunity to celebrate our first Honduran Father’s Day on March 20th. This day was very special for us as many of you know how long we waited and prayed for a child. David was able to be spoiled at church on this day with the other fathers. They had a special service at church with a special lunch afterwards.

Honduran food

Maria and I

We are very grateful for our host parents who continue to take excellent care of us. We enjoy 3 Honduran meals a day and it has helped us to adapt to the culture. Hannah was also able to teach Maria, our host mom, how to make brownies! It was lots of fun and very yummy. 🙂 

MAG truck

David has been able to help Wes with the MAG truck since we have been stationed here in La Ceiba. This truck will be shipped out hopefully in the next week (April 8, 2016) to be used out in the jungle. We praise the Lord for providing this truck for MAG. 

Praises: 

~ We praise the Lord for the completion of language school and the success with Hannah learning Spanish. She still has a ways to go, but we’re thankful for what all she has learned. 

~ We praise the Lord for our health. We have been healthy here and Hannah’s pregnancy has gone great! Almost there! 😉

~ We praise the Lord for our time here in La Ceiba. Since we have lived here, we have been able to learn the city inside and out, which will be so helpful to us as we come here often for medical supplies and food in the future. 

~ We praise the Lord for his provision. He has continued to provide for us, and we know he will continue to do so. 

Prayer Request:

~ Please pray for a safe and easy delivery for Hannah and our little boy in the next week or two. 

~ Pray for us as we begin our transition to the jungle in a few weeks. Although we have been there, we know it will be an adjustment going from the city to the jungle and the many tasks we will need to complete over the next several months. 

~ Please pray for our upcoming construction team that is traveling from the U.S. (April 25th- May 7th) Pray for a successful trip and good health for all the team members that are coming. 

~ Pray for our finances as we try to be careful on how we transition into the jungle while maintaining a budget. 

We hope all of you are doing well. Thank you for your continued prayer and financial support. We love and appreciate all of you!

Blessings,

David and Hannah

Busy, but loving it!

Hello friends and family!

It’s been awhile since our last blog post due to our last newsletter coming out by email and our video updates on Facebook. We hope all of you are doing well. We always enjoy seeing and “catching up” with all of you on Facebook. We wanted to update you on what’s been going on and be looking for our March newsletter pretty soon!

A lot of people want to know what the weather is like here. For the past two weeks, we received a lot of rain and cooler temperatures, ok cooler for us but a joke for all of you. 😉 It would get down in the mid 60’s and 70’s. Very refreshing for this time of year. This past week the temps went back up in the 80’s and 90’s, with a few rain showers still. We are in their winter and the end of their rainy season. We enjoy the warmer weather, but it has been a big adjustment for both of us having no air conditioning and only one fan in our room. BUT we love it here! You find ways to stay cool such as cold showers and going out for ice-cream. 😉

David and Hannah

8 months pregnant! We rejoice and praise the Lord for this sweet baby boy we will welcome in our arms in a few short weeks.

sweet baby

Our sweet baby boy taking a nap on the placenta. 😉

School continues to go well. We just completed 6 weeks of intensive language school and have 6 more to go! We plan on going to school through the end of March and possibly through some of April, depending on how Hannah is feeling being pregnant. Right now, school can be very tiring for her as she is in the home stretch of her pregnancy. (7 more weeks) Our afternoons and evenings are filled with Spanish homework, guitar lessons (twice a week), practicing with the guitar, missions work, attending our local church here, preparation for Rus Rus mission base, and preparing for baby! Our days are very busy, but we love it! 🙂

Chester and Hannah

Chester, our german shepherd puppy (5 months now), loves to be around his mommy and daddy. He enjoyed listening to mommy try to play the guitar the other night. 🙂

We are very happy that we found a wonderful church here in La Ceiba. It is called Iglesia Bautista Nuevo Comunion. (New Communion Baptist Church) We both feel spiritually fed and encouraged when we attend and the people are SO sweet. Hannah is able to understand about 85% of the service unless they speak too fast. 😉 Following along in a Spanish Bible and reading the screen in Spanish seems to help her learn faster. She is also trying to converse more with the people in Spanish. They have been very supportive and encouraging in our upcoming move to Rus Rus. We know these will be brothers and sisters in Christ that we will stay in touch with for many years to come.

Praises: 

~ Praise the Lord we found a wonderful church to attend! 

~ Praise the Lord for a continued healthy and safe pregnancy for Hannah and baby. Baby boy continues to grow nice and strong. (already weighing a little over 4 pounds) 

Prayer Request: 

~ Continue to pray for a healthy pregnancy these last 7 weeks. Pray for strength for Hannah as she is very tired all the time (even with lots of sleep) and has had a little trouble with swollen ankles from time to time. Other than that, she has had a wonderful pregnancy with little to no complications. 

~ Pray for our upcoming construction team in April/May. David and the team leaders have much planning and preparation to do before that time and not to mention with a baby on the way it’s extra stress on David. Pray God will give him wisdom as he makes decisions. 

~ Pray for the residency process for us. It is a long process and we are in the beginning stages of it and need your prayers. We know God is able! Also, for baby boy once he is born and we apply for his citizenship. 

~ Please be in prayer for the mission base in Rus Rus as the medical/dental brigade is under way and will finish up next week. We will have more details about this brigade in our newsletter. Pray for strength and good health for all the medical personnel and for Wes and Denise as they minister there.

~ Please pray for all of our personal belongings for our home in Rus Rus, David’s tool box, baby stuff from 2 baby showers, and much more making it’s way by ship to Honduras. We are hoping to receive these items in the next 2-3 weeks.

cargo

All the cargo in route to Honduras!

We love and appreciate all of you! We are so thankful for the supporters (both in prayer and finances) he has placed in our path. We pray God continues to take care of all of you. Drop us a line sometime. We love to hear from each of you. 🙂

Be looking for our next newsletter that will come out the first week of March. If you have not signed up for our monthly newsletters via email and would like to, send us a private message with your information.

Blessings,

David and Hannah

Settling In

Hello friends and family,

Over the last two weeks we have been on an adventure! We have enjoyed flying here, unpacking, getting to know our host family, a week of classes, and getting to know La Ceiba better.

Us at Roatan

A few things we have learned along the way… 

  1. How to count lempiras (currency here)- $1.00 is worth 22.3 times our currency which makes us use bigger bills. We both about had a heart attack when our bill at the store was over 1,000 lempiras just to learn that’s equivalent to $45.00. 🙂 Gotta love Honduras!
  2. That the electricity and water can go out any time… even in the middle of class! Don’t always expect to have it. And no, you can’t call Duke Energy for your electricity problems.
  3. David has found out how much Spanish he still needs to learn and has lots of homework every night. Hannah confirmed what she already knew… she knew enough Spanish to barely get by. Being here at Spanish school was such a great choice and we are thoroughly enjoying it. We are learning so much every day.
  4. And the best of all… learning to trust God with everything! And we mean everything, big and small. We are still amazed that we are here and how sovereign God’s timing is.

Language school is going well and is very busy. We have 4 hours of class every day (Monday-Friday) and homework each night. We are trying to use our time wisely each day. We have already accomplished several things in preparation for our move to Rus Rus (jungle house), but much is still needed to be done. We would appreciate your prayers in that regards.

Hannah y Nancy

Manuel y David

David with his teacher Manuel, also our host dad.

We found a wonderful doctor here in the area that we are very happy with. Him and his daughter own an OB/GYN clinic in the area. We had another ultrasound last week and baby boy is doing wonderful. He continues to grow nice and strong. As of last week, he was weighing 2.5 pounds but we are sure it’s more by now. Hannah entered the third trimester of her pregnancy (28 weeks) this past Monday. We are rejoicing in this little boy and can’t wait to meet him soon!

27 weeks

Picture above was last week (27 weeks)- Now Hannah is 28 weeks and in her 3rd trimester.

At the doctor

One of the doctors working with us here in La Ceiba. We had another wonderful ultrasound!

Praises

~ We praise the Lord for safety and good health as we have been here. The Lord continues to take care of us.

~ Praise the Lord we found a good, Christian agency that will be working on our residency for Honduras.

~ Praise the Lord for our wonderful host family we are living with. They have been such a blessing to us by taking good care of us and helping us learn more about La Ceiba.

Wes with truck

We praise the Lord for the Rus Rus truck that Missionary Air Group just got. We are excited to have this out in the jungle. 🙂 Larger tires arriving soon. 

Pray For:

~ Continue to pray for a safe and healthy pregnancy for Hannah and baby boy.

~ Please pray for us as we are in the process of finding a local church here in La Ceiba to attend until we move to the jungle.

~ Pray for an upcoming trip this weekend that David will be taking to San Pedro Sula (3 hours away) with some other missionaries to learn about residency and dual citizenship for baby boy. Hannah will be staying in La Ceiba with her host mom as the traveling wears on her pregnant body. Pray for a good relationship with the government of Honduras and the missionaries as David will attend a conference with important political figures in Honduras (president, vice president, etc.)

~ Pray for wisdom and knowledge as we purchase construction materials in the next few weeks as we prepare for our upcoming construction team who will be completing our home in April/May. Pray for all our totes to safely make it to Honduras. They will be shipped soon and will take about a month to arrive.

We hope all of you are doing well. We see that you might be getting some snow in North Carolina. We are enjoying the nice, warm weather down here. Stay warm! 🙂

Blessings,

David and Hannah

We made it!

Greetings from Honduras!

It stills seems so surreal that we are actually here. We give God the glory and praise for how he got us here in such a short amount of time, something only he could do! We praise the Lord for all our supporters who have encouraged  and helped send us. We are so appreciative.

We have had two days of Spanish classes and they have gone well. We both have different teachers as we are not on the same level in Spanish. Hannah is learning basic Spanish/how to communicate and David is focusing more on writing and learning aviation terms , theological terms for preaching, and medical terms. Our host family speaks a little English, but are trying to primarily speak in Spanish around Hannah. David is also trying to speak more Spanish around me so I can get used to it. 🙂

A Typical Day so far…

6:00 am- Get up and get ready for the day. The birds sing so beautifully here and often wake you up.

7:00 am- Breakfast with our host family

8:00 am- 12:00 pm- Spanish Classes with one break in between

12:00 pm- Lunch with our host family

After lunch, we are trying to be wise with our time and that includes: research the city and get to know it (it will be where we come every month for our supplies), devotions, catching up with all of you, missions work/preparations for Rus Rus jungle mission base, etc. Every day has been different so far! 🙂 It is very hot in the afternoons so sometimes just relaxing and not being outside is a must. There is no air conditioning either, in case you were wondering. 😉

6:00 pm- Dinner with our host family

After dinner is usually free time as well, but we hope to get to know more people in the community and local church here. We want to be involved. We will be attending a local church here in La Ceiba this Sunday (tomorrow).

Before we go to bed each night, a cold shower is a must after a very hot day. It helps you to sleep so much better. When you come to visit, you will understand completely. 🙂

Saturday is cleaning day here at the home as our host family has a big home to clean. We try to help out as much as possible. It’s also laundry day, which might seem easy. Luckily, we have a washing machine, but there is no dryer so we hang dry all our clothes. Great practice for the jungle!

Sundays are for worship/rest and we will be looking for a local church here in La Ceiba to attend and fellowship with other believers.

David and Hannah

Our Little family of 3… soon to be 4! 🙂

Fajitas Fish food

Trying new food is a must when moving to a new country! 😉

Chester

Our balcony view- Chester loves to bask in the sun. 🙂

A couple bits of information you might be wondering about…

  1. The weather here is beautiful and tropical like. From 12:00 pm till about 4:00 pm it can get quite hot. It is pretty cool in the mornings and evenings. Of course we are in their winter right now. It will be interesting I am sure during their summer. 😉 Two days so far have been almost 90 degrees, just to give you an idea.
  2. Chester, our german shepherd puppy, is doing great and loves it here. He has adapted very well. We are so thankful to have him and know he will be a perfect addition for us as a guard and runway dog in Rus Rus.
  3. Hannah and the baby are doing great. We are in the process of finding a doctor/hospital in the city where the baby will be delivered. We would appreciate your prayers for wisdom.

Prayer Request:

  1. Please continue to pray for a healthy and safe pregnancy. Hannah is 26 weeks pregnant and we continue to praise the Lord for this little boy growing in her womb. She has been feeling well and had no complications so far- praise the Lord!
  2. Pray for our health and safety as we are here in the city. Pray for the transition as we get use to the climate, food, culture, language, and being away from home.
  3. Pray for relationships we will build here in the city. Pray for opportunities to share the gospel with those we come in contact with. Even though we are only here for language school, we want to make the most of every opportunity.
  4. Pray for wisdom as we continue to make preparations/plans for our move to the jungle in April/May. There is much to be done before then.
  5. Pray for us as we will begin the residency process very soon. We have a 90 day visa and are prayerfully aiming to get this done soon. It will makes things here so much easier once we are residents.

Thank you for your continued prayers and support! We love each of you.

Blessings from Honduras,

David and Hannah Mora

 

Packed and Ready to Go!

Family and Friends,

We just finished the Christmas season and we hope you had a joyous one with your families. We enjoyed the Christmas holiday with Hannah’s family in Winston-Salem and are now enjoying bringing in the new year in Florida with David’s family.

 Over the past month, our hearts have been going through many emotions. These emotions bring excitement, fear of the unknown, sadness for leaving family and friends, and the sense of a new adventure! We are thrilled to be on this journey and cannot wait to be in Honduras next week, but we are still human and have our struggles. We have definitely shed some tears, contemplated our decisions, but overall knew without a doubt that God was calling us to do this and he was completely faithful to do it! We have seen God’s hand of faithfulness in so many ways the past 10 years of training/Bible college, but more so in these 6 months of support raising. God has raised these funds so we are able to go! It’s because of people just like YOU who have stepped up to help send us to Honduras. We want to extend our thanks to you, our supporters. Thank you for believing in what God has called us to do. Thank you for encouraging us every step of the way. We are so blessed and thankful to have such a strong support team here in the States rooting us on as we depart the country. You are the hands and feet of Jesus by helping sending us. We are eternally grateful, and so are the countless lives that will be touched by the generosity and sacrifices you have made to help send us. We hope many of you will come visit us in the jungles of Honduras in the future. 🙂

Points of Praise:

~ We continue to praise the Lord for a healthy baby boy! Hannah had her last baby appointment in Winston-Salem last week and everything looks great! She passed her glucose test with flying colors and is ready to travel. Baby boy kicks and moves around A LOT. He is already keeping mommy on her toes. 😉 She will get a new doctor once we arrive in Honduras. She will continue her monthly and eventually weekly visits until time for baby boy to come. Please continue to pray for a safe and healthy pregnancy as moving is very stressful. (25 weeks this week) 

~ We praise the Lord for our continued support! God continues to raise funds, even though our time of traveling deputation has been completed. We are in awe of his provision. 

~ We praise the Lord for the sweet time of fellowship we have enjoyed with our family and friends for the past few months in various places. 

Prayer Request

~ Please pray for a safe flight to Honduras on Tuesday, January 5th. Our flight departs at 6:30 a.m. from Miami, Florida. 

~ Pray for us as we transition to life in Honduras- to the food, climate, language, and living with a host family for language school.

~ Pray for our time in language school (3 months) to be fruitful and that we will learn lots (mostly Hannah). Pray we will be able to build relationships with the people in the city as we will continue to come in contact with them each time we fly into La Ceiba for supplies/food. Pray for opportunities to share Christ, even while we are in language school. 

Our Upcoming Schedule

~ Tuesday, January 5th- Fly to Honduras- We will arrive in San Pedro Sula and then drive to La Ceiba (about a 3 hour drive) where we will be living until baby boy arrives. La Ceiba is where we will attend language school and live with a host family. La Ceiba is also the main city where we will fly into to pick up supplies/food once we are living in the jungle.

~ April 11th- Our sweet baby is due, but we all know he will come when he decides to! 🙂 After he is born and Hannah has recovered, we will fly to Rus Rus, Honduras (our mission base) where we will call our home. 

~ April 25th- May 7th- Construction Team in Rus Rus to prepare our home. Pray for our team as they prepare to come and minister. 

After the construction team leaves, we are hoping to be moved into our new home as soon as we are able. We are praying for a smooth transition into the jungle. 

We love and appreciate all of you! As always, let us know how we can pray for you too. We love to hear from you! 🙂

Blessings,

David and Hannah

It’s been awhile…

Hello friends and family!

We have had a very busy month of transition as we moved back to Winston-Salem. We sent out our newsletter last week, but some of you may still not be on our list. If you’d like to be added, please send us a message with your email information.

We were fortunate to spend October speaking at several different churches, a Christian school missions conference, and sharing with a small group at a brunswick stew. November has started off to be very busy as well! We spent all of last week at JAARS, a mission organization in Waxhaw, NC also associated with Wycliffe Bible Translators. We were there to attend their 1 week off road driving course and for David to do some dirt bike maintenance. It was a very beneficial week for both of us and we thoroughly enjoyed it!

Dirt Bike PictureWe have enjoyed our time here in Winston-Salem reconnecting with friends and family, but are getting excited about our next steps towards Honduras. We are aiming to leave early January, if the Lord allows and things continue to go as planned. Currently, we are at 78% of our monthly financial support and it continues to come in! We are so appreciative of all the churches, small groups, Sunday School Classes, and individuals who have taken a step of faith in supporting us financially. You are furthering the kingdom of God!

Praises:

~ We praise the Lord for Hannah’s healthy pregnancy! She is currently 18 weeks pregnant and has started feeling baby flutters. 🙂 God has been so gracious to us in answering our heart’s desire to become parents. We find out the gender next Tuesday, November 17th and can’t wait to share the news with all of you!

~ Praise the Lord for safety and protection on the off road driving course, especially for David as he did some extreme training.

Prayer Request:

~ Pray for all the transitions that we are going through now as we prepare to go, and for the transitions to come for us and for our families.

~ Pray for Wes and Denise Wiles, the missionaries serving in Rus Rus, Honduras. Pray for physical strength, protection, and encouragement as they patiently wait on us to join them. We are excited to join them soon!

Upcoming Schedule (Subject to change)

~ November 15th- Calvary Chapel Fellowship

~ November 22nd- Open

~ November 29th- Berean Baptist Church in Manassas, VA

~ December 6th- Open

~ December 13th- Heritage Bible Fellowship in Boiling Springs, NC

We love all of you and appreciate your prayer/financial support! 

Blessings,

David and Hannah

 

Settling In

Hello friends and family!

God is so good and his timing is perfect… beyond perfect. We are still blown away that we are back in Winston-Salem, in a fully furnished missions home. We sold all of our furniture in Shelby before moving, which was a big step of faith. We moved to Winston, knowing this would be a temporary home until our big move to Honduras. We are still in awe of God’s timing with our little one in my womb. God’s timing and provisions are perfect.

The mission home we are currently living in. What a blessing it is to stay here. We are so grateful for Faith Church allowing us to live here.

We are settled in our mission home at the moment and praying for the Lord’s timing for our big move to Honduras. David is leaving for Honduras next week and will try to get the dates set for language school for January 2016, Lord willing. Would you pray with us? We don’t have all the answers at the moment, but God continues to amaze us with how our support is coming in. He’s really doing this and we are able to see his provisions along the way! What a journey we are on. We praise the Lord for calling us and choosing to use us as his vessels.

Currently, we are at 56.4% of our financial support and it continues to climb, plus we are receiving significant donations towards our outgoing expense fund for moving to Honduras. We are so humbled and blessed by the Lord’s provisions. We are so thankful for all the opportunities we have had sharing with pastors, church congregations, small groups, and individuals over the past 4 months of our support raising.

Praises:

~ We praise the Lord for a healthy pregnancy so far. We were able to hear the baby’s heartbeat last Thursday and what a sweet sound to our ears that was! Hannah will be 14 weeks pregnant this coming Monday and will have completed her 1st trimester of pregnancy. 

~ We praise the Lord for continued provision in support raising. 

~ We praise the Lord for good health and safety as we travel the American highway each week. 

Prayer Request:

~ Pray for David as he travels to Honduras October 14th-24th to help with various projects and do research in the city we will be living in for language school. David will be visiting the hospitals in the city to do research for baby births. Pray for wisdom as that is a big decision. 

~ Pray for wisdom as we pray about a departure date and for the Lord to finish bringing all of our support in. We know he is able! 

How can we pray for YOU? Please send us your requests, and we would love to pray for you. We appreciate and love all of you!!

Blessings,

David and Hannah
