***************************************************************************************************************

Furlough '14 is almost done!  We can't wait to return to the work in Australia!!

We are still hoping to get back about a week into Feb 2015. To do that we need at least another $230 per month in support.  It is our hope that churches and current partners will be able to help a bit each so that this shortfall is covered very soon.

Another issue is the sale of our car.  If anyone is interested in a good used car that gets in the low 30's for mileage, please contact us right away.  We know about what it is worth, and we know we owe more than that.  So we are not looking to move much, if any, on price. We want $4775.
"07 Chrysler Sebring 4 door.  It has good tires and the body is clean and straight. Approx. 97K miles

We would give the greatest discount to someone willing to let us use it until close to our return date (tickets not purchased yet, but early Feb).

 

***************************************************************************************************************

We are on furlough again in 2014! Many dates are already booked .

If you are interested in having us give a report to your church or group (or as an individual supporter) please contact us soon as the dates usually are booked on a first come first served (Aussies say "First in - Best dressed!") basis.

Currently we are at 85 % of our required minimum support (-$1400). We still hope to connect with ministry partners to raise this financial need and return by mid January. We NEED to be back in Australia before the first of Feb.

Thanks! Hope to see you soon.
