The purpose of this post, which I’ll keep short and sweet, is to provide some clarifying information and answer some questions. As we enter the final stretch, (CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!?), many of you have been asking how you can support us and/or how you can help. We are so grateful for how our friends and family have come together to help us get to where we are in the process, we seriously could not have done it without you. Many of you have already provided logistic, emotional, spiritual, and financial support.
So, where do the Steele’s stand right now? Well physically, we are a little on the sick side, praying that goes away before the flight. (Please pray with us!) But, logistically, most everything is in place. (Other than the great packing adventure; see: “This is the story of a girl, who brought a pumpkin across the whole world”.)
Our financial support is one of the areas where we are in the most need. We have had many generous donations, and so have been able to afford the move to a whole new country. Praise God! However, we are only about 50% of the way to our monthly goal, which is where partners commit to supporting the Japan mission on a monthly basis. We are not concerned about this, we know God wants us in Japan and so He will have us there one way or another, funds or not. We are not even looking for just anyone to join as a monthly supporter. What this is, is an opportunity for anyone who has seen the plan God has for us in Japan, and seen our hearts, and feels that God is asking them to support it. If that is you, here is your opportunity. I have a link attached to the bottom of this page that will allow you to set up a monthly support to the mission. (Or the “Give”/Support tabs at the top and side.)
For those of you who already have and continue to support us in any form, we are incredibly grateful. Thanks, and stay posted for travel pics!
