A big meeting...

Well, once again, God has given us a huge boost of confidence. Our dinner with our pastor and his wife was awesome. They were very encouraging to us about our plans, and were excited about what we're doing. He also asked us what we're doing for support, and when I told him we were raising our full support, he said that he really wanted the church to support us and also said that he'd like to bring us in front of the church missions board to present our vision. The missions board then makes a recommendation to the pastoral staff, who then make the final decision on which missions to support.

He said that ultimately he'd like to bring us up in front of the church to share with everyone what we're doing. He said we could play our DVD and also have a chance to speak to share our heart.

What an awesome blessing that is. Before we went tonight, I just prayed that God would give us the words to share our heart and that he would take care of the rest. Our pastor and his wife are great people and we really enjoyed the time. They gave us some good advice and encouragment, and also were very gracious to offer us the chance to come before the church.

So needless to say, we have our work cut out for us this week to put together a resume of sorts and also some basic information about eMi. So please pray that we can put together a good presentation that accurately portrays what God is doing. We're pretty dang excited to have this opportunity!

Hey man. It's Matt, although I'm posting as Emilie cuz I don't have my own account. Anyway, just wanted to say how much Emilie and I love you guys and how much we support you in this. What a privilege it is to see a couple so obediently responding to God and seeing things unfolding before your very eyes! My faith is being inspired by your family- thank you.
