Dennis is not sure about what will happen; however, he is open to prayer about going this Christmas to Ukraine, or that Eastern European region. If a team could go there from Michigan and elsewhere in the US, then great; perhaps such a journey could be fruitful in serving the needs of others in that war torn area. If the LORD does not lead for this, then we will hope to still make the trip to Central America as originally planned. If we do go with a team to Ukraine, then Nicaragua will still be for yet another time, hopefully in 2023.
Today, Dennis and Teresa had the news confirmed that their four-year-old, David, is on the Autism spectrum. Dennis also believed that Jehovah-God-our-Father confirmed that a journey to Nicaragua, this coming Christmas, is in divine order. So, now the planning begins. The first thing they will do, besides continuing in prayer, is to reach out to their friend Joshua, in North Carolina, and let him know that they desire to have a mutual partnership with him as it relates to the administrative aspect of getting a team together for service and encouragement to our neighbors in this great Central American nation (which happens to be the second poorest one in the Western hemisphere, Haiti being first). So, l.e.i. will continue to post information and hope that this endeavor will come to past in what should be a trip beginning and ending in less than 10 months from now!
