Weekend in Michigan

April & Gavin

Friday evening we left the cold of Fort Wayne to go to the even colder of Michigan!
We had a great time catching up with family and friends and sharing about our upcoming adventure. It was so nice to see those we haven’t seen for a long time, and the little kids who have gotten so much bigger!

Maple Grove Church

Sunday morning we had the opportunity to share with Jason’s home church, Maple Grove Church, about our adventure. It was a blessing to be with them and have their prayers and support. It was exciting to see all the new families that are part of the church and all the activity going on! We heard about new small groups starting up (including a karate class!), saw the super heroines of the children’s ministry, and enjoyed fellowship over cups of Tim Horton‘s coffee.

We also got highlights of the ministries happening there. One of the many community outreaches that Maple Grove is involved in is a medical ministry. Loving Hands Clinic is housed in their building and serves the uninsured of the area. When patients come in, they also have the opportunity to be prayed for by volunteers from the church.
We feel honored that we can be an extension of this outreach-oriented church as they stand behind us in our ministry in Thailand.
