Plans for a Trip to the States

A Furlough
As the Lord continues to bless the work here in Portugal, we have begun praying about the possibility  of visiting the States to spend time with family and partners.

It is such a privilege to be a part of the Lord's work here in Portugal.  On June 15 of this year, we reached two years of living in the great city of Porto.  We are now praying for the opportunity to visit the States on a short furlough in the summer of 2015.  We are looking specifically to arrive on June 20, and stay until August 20. We will begin to connect with our church partners to see about opportunities to visit and share all about what the Lord is doing here.

Trip Expenses
As we are a large family, the biggest financial challenge will be the cost of airfare.  We will be needing to purchase six plane tickets.  We will also have in-country expenses like van rentals, etc.  Our plan will be to spend time with our families in the northeast, as well as visit each one of our church partners, both on the east and west coasts.  Would you prayerfully consider giving towards our visit to the States?  Thank you, as always, for your partnership!

If you would like to give specifically towards this trip, please write your check out to BILD International (as always), and include "Darling Family Furlough" on the memo line.  You can also give by credit card by calling BILD at the number in the upper right hand corner of this blog.
