My Second Mission Email: Sent On July 22, 2010

Friends and Loved Ones,
To continue filling you all in on the journey I've been on towards Chile and Fuego Urbano, please read the previous blog post that has the first Email Update I sent out to people, as well as this one where I have Copied the 2nd Email Update I sent out on July 22, right after I got back from my scouting trip in Chile. As you can see, God made it so clear to me in this trip that this was exactly the place He had prepared for me, and the exact right people and ministry to work with. Please read Below:

"Friends & Family,

I hope this email finds you well wherever you are. I have some exciting news I want to share with you all, and while I'm just giving a short update now, I'll send you out more info in the next couple weeks as I put more of the pieces together.

As many of you know, I just went to Chile last week to look into some opportunities for me to do long-term missions and ministry there with some people I know from when I lived there 6 years ago. My week in Chile was absolutely amazing and I was stunned about just how clearly and completely God had woven together the perfect circumstances for me to walk into and commit my future to. It is truly exactly the kind of situation I was hoping for and praying God would lead me to. Praise the Lord, He has done just that!

Therefore: My plan now is to make arrangements to move long-term to Chile (10 years minimum) in late September, and partner with some close friends there in using all kinds of sports and activities to reach the younger generation of Northern Chile, and to partner with them in planting churches whose ministries and sports-outreaches will be unlike anything anyone or any church has ever seen in Chile. So I'm super excited to get moving!

As I said, I'll get more info and details out in the next couple weeks but I ask that you keep me in prayer over the next couple months and pray that God would take care of all the details and help me attend to all the things I need to attend to in order to make this transition...such as: stepping down from my position at CPC, selling belongings and my car, raising ongoing financial support, moving out of my house, shipping things to Chile, and finally moving to Chile myself. So it'll be a bit hectic but I'm really excited and trust that God will see me through this whole process. Still, I ask for you prayers either way.

Thanks so much for all your love and support, and thanks ahead of time for you prayers and encouragements!
Love you all,
