Prayer Concerns:

CSPCU News: Praise God!! the work with the Committee is moving along quite well. We are currently finalizing our list of goals and defining our vision. The next meeting is scheduled for March 26th. One of our Prayer concerns was that we needed a Ukraine national to be willing to step forward and to act as the Committee Chairman. We may have found that person. They need to do some preparations with their current job, and we need to be able to provide his family with a salary, but it is looking very positive. Also, we have been in contact with some lawyers, and we have found one who is willing to let their name be connected with this organization. They will be coming to Uzhgorod to give us a
Thank you to all of you who have signed on for monthly sponsorship. We now have 1 bronze monthly sponsor (<$25), 2 silver sponsors ($25), 1 sterling sponsor (>$25), and 1 gold sponsor (>$100). We will not mention you by name, as you have all requested to remain anonymous, but know that we are praying for each of you.
Michigan Bridge News: We are excited to be in the planning stages for receiving our first team from USA. There are two women from Wolverine Free Methodist Church who have received their passports and are raising funding so that they can come and answer the call which God has placed on their hearts to go on a missions trip.
presentation about how to become a non-profit organization. Progress has been sort of slow going, but as this is such a "hot" topic, we are moving with extreme caution and making sure all things are in place at each step of this birthing process.
On another note, I have recently returned from a conference led by Dorcas Aid International which was held in Debrecen, Hungary. It was a wonderful and intensive seminar about time management, financial planning, and community development. It was a great place to network, share ideas, and to learn from some very knowledgeable people working in missions and humanitarian relief. Many of the other committee members were there and it was great information for us all. We had great fellowship and prayer and the food was excellent!!
I had a chance to meet with friends of mom and Dale's while we were in Hungary. After dinner, Gustav, director for the Hungarian Reformed Protestant Aid, and I began discussing what it would take to help him get a container for the homeless of Hungary. He has a vision to use these goods which will be sent from USA as a way to spread the gospel on the streets to these men and women in need. This is just an idea at this point, but we are asking for prayer and direction if this is God's will. This may be something that we as a church can get involved in and combine the efforts of all three of the missions projects which we support, Frank Allen, Michigan Bridge, and Extreme Youth.

Personal News: I have found a wonderful fullly furnished flat and the rent is affordable and the location is great. I have access to the internet, but only a few days a week as i have to goto the missionary house cafe and i don't always have time.

As many of you have heard, I am going to be getting married. I met Layera last year as she was the secretary / translator for CSPCU. The more we worked togather, the better we got to know each other. She is a incredible blessing from God and I am honored that she said "yes". She is the woman of my prayers!! The wedding is scheduled for April 28th, 2007.
