First prayer meeting

Tomorrow, we (Mustard Seed Ministries) will be having the first prayer meeting concerning the next season God has directed us toward.  We have invited a few folks from the Southgate area of Portland (Wilsonville, Canby, Aurora, Hubbard and Woodburn) to join us in prayer, discussion, and listening to what God has spoken to Andy and I about, concerning this new ministry.  We are excited, a little nervous, and anticipating God to show up tomorrow evening.

For all of you who have faithfully followed us along this journey (even during this summer when communication has been scarce) we would love for you to join us in prayer also.  We will cover logistics, vision, question/answer, and open prayer time.  For Andy and I, we ask prayer for clarity of speech, sound minds, and transparency.  The scripture that will be taking some time to meditate on is Isaiah 58.

We also want to thank those of you who have continued to give financially.  We GREATLY appreciate it.  This summer has been a restful and rejuvenating time of growth and we are thankful to those who have remembered us.  Andy has started back into teaching at Woodburn High School, half-time.  I have started Avery and Ally in homeschool (while trying to keep Eva entertained).  Baby is still in utero waiting for her turn (due Oct. 2).  All of us have had time to adjust into this way of life.  We are still figuring out what “normal” is for us at this point and desperately seeking the Lord to keep our minds and hearts out of the rat-race of life in this world.  It is stronger than you may think.

As for this website, we are looking forward to updating more regularly; sharing regular life stories, ministry updates, God appointments, and passages we may be meditating on.

Thank you for praying and we will update you with how the meeting goes tomorrow evening!


The Simple Gospel

This Sunday we have the opportunity to share stories and reflections from this past year on the roads of North America.  We will be sharing many stories about how the Lord worked through us on the broken streets of this empire, but more importantly, we will be sharing about the abundant life our Father has called all of us into.  A life that puts itself last in a world clamoring to be first.  A life where the rich and powerful must wash the feet of the beggar in order to see and understand it.  A life, when compared to the world we are living, up is down and down is up.

If you would like to hear our stories and live in the Portland area, here are the details:
