Our Missionary Flight International (MFI) order came yesterday…translation. Groceries and supplies! We were blown away at how accurate everything was! We placed an order with a mission organization out of Florida, and they went shopping for us, packaged everything in boxes, and flew the airplane loaded with our goodies to Eleuthera! Another thing that blew us away–we weren’t charged any duty from the Customs office! ~So blessed~ And–Emily and Micah arrived from the States too! We just want everyone to know that we are doing unbelievable! We have unpacked all the boxes that will be unpacked. Our pictures/decorations are hung. Our bathroom cabinet is organized. Our kitchen cabinets are organized. The only thing left….get internet! We just wanted everyone to know that we still have no internet, which explains the reason why we haven’t been posting things on a regular basis on our website. Once we’re up and running, you will hear so much more from us.
For the time being…hope all is well with everyone. We miss our friends and family so much! But it is neat how God sustains our heart. Just when I start to feel sad about missing everyone, I read something in His Word that gives me peace. Or I see a picture of someone that helps get me through that moment. Once school starts, we will be super busy, which will be great. Isaac gets to attend Agape House, a preschool. He is super excited about this. We will get to have regular Bible study with the Flunkers as well as two other couples! I will also be able to have a women’s Bible study with Emily and 2 other ladies. God is so good! (all the time)
We would love to hear from you all! Facebook Ryan or myself, email us, or skype us. Our contact info is on the “Contact Us” tab. Love you all! God bless!

Prayer Requests & Praises*Pray that God will provide what we need, either a customs exemption or enough money, to clear the materials and supplies for this summer's mission work with the teams. Right now it's stuck at the airport customs office.*Pray that Young Life will continue to be interesting and engaging to the students, and that we will be able to challenge them to truly grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus. *Praise - Isaac and Melissa had a great time visiting the Haitian community in northern Eleuthera. Isaac made some fast friends. And the mission team during spring break has been a wonderful time and tremendous success!*Praise/Prayer - The school year is almost over. Praise that the year has been so great, but pray for the final two months to finish strong, us and the students.*Continue to pray that we're able to handle the summer mission teams. Summer is right around the corner, and there are about 10-12 (or possibly more) teams coming to us at Windermere. That's a lot of help, but there's a lot of prep to be done as well.
