Welcome Spring! God is great! We have had a blessed month! We have spent time with our families, celebrated Easter, and shared our vision for Cambodia with new people and churches!
April started off with Avin’s Grandpa’s 80th birthday, so we began planning our family trip to Kelowna where we could have time with the family and then spend some time connecting with new churches in the Okanagan. Everything was going perfectly, until days before the trip. The road reports started warning people of travel, news of blizzards and horrible road conditions on the Coquihalla! A sad last minute decision led us to post-pone the trip. But the next weekend, with roads looking good, we packed our bags and headed up to the Okanagan. Praise God, beautiful blue skies and dry roads were waiting for us this time around. With God’s grace and leading this trip was meant to be post-poned, we were able to make some wonderful new connections throughout Vernon, Penticton, West Kelowna and Kelowna!
Thank you to the wonderful Koch family, who hosted us for our time up there!!!! Amidst meetings, there was some wonderful Easter bread, time to catch-up, and a rousing game of Pass the Pigs!!! I think Isaac Koch and Joel might have thoughts of joining the Professional Pass the Pigs League! (lol)
We are so encouraged by the Pastors and people we have been meeting with, and the connections they are so generously helping us make. There are doors opening up in other provinces, so please keep praying for these opportunities where we can share our hearts and what God has called us to!
So slowly but surely God is opening the hearts of those around us to partner with us. We are also planning to have a Missions Night Fundraiser over the next while, so stay tuned for more details there!
