“Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.”

Philippians 4:6

We thank God for each and every one of you who is praying for us and supporting us.

Recently, we took a road trip with Taliya’s parents down the Pacific Northwest Coast, visiting Armstrong, Seattle, Portland, San Francisco, Redding, and everything in between. We had the chance to speak about our moving plans at New Life Church in Rocky Mountain House, AB, visited family in Armstrong, BC, and Seattle, WA, and attended Bethel Church for Easter Sunday. What a blessing this trip truly was to us!

The Saturday before the Easter service, we visited ministry rooms, recommended to us by family who had visited in the past. The ministry rooms are allocated as time for people to come in for healing and prayer. While we were there, we were prayed over by several people and felt this overwhelming sense that we were in God’s hands and felt peace towards our move overseas. Without any knowledge of who we were or what our plans were, we were given the words “creativity” and “photography” and that we would travel and reach the nations using our skills and gifts.


As we continue to share our mission, we have also made significant progress in meeting key requirements for our move overseas, and it’s all thanks to your incredible support. Because of your support so far, we have been able to:

  • Book our visa application appointment for May at the embassy in Vancouver—please pray that our visa application appointment will go smoothly
  • Secure our flights with a planned departure for our deployment in West Central Asia in mid-August
  • Pay for and enroll in our first semester of language learning, starting this fall in our country of deployment

We are overjoyed that our goal of moving overseas is becoming more tangible. A dream we always said we would eventually pursue is now set to happen in less than four months. The harvest is ripe, but the workers are few. As we respond to the call with, ‘Here I am, Lord, send me,’ we trust that your continued support will help us fulfill this mission.

We are so blessed by your continual prayers and support for us, so we want to thank you. If you have any questions or simply want to chat with us, send us an email by clicking our names below. 😊

“May the Lord be with your spirit. And may his grace be with all of you.”

2 Timothy 4:22
