This past Sunday was the first official meeting we had where all 14 of our team members were actually physically present in one room.  Over the past 9 months, we have been meeting monthly with a few of our members calling, face timing, or video chatting into the meetings with us.  After all of the meetings and preparations, it was truly exciting to see our entire team united and talking through the details of actually being in Armenia!  The packing lists, itinerary, names of specific places, people, and ministries we’ll be visiting and taking part in gave everyone a sense of excitement that in less than a week, we will actually be there!  We are seeing the final details coming together before our eyes.

As much as we’ve prayed, thought, talked, and planned, we know that we could never be fully prepared for the real experience.  It is this unseen sense of adventure that makes us all so eager to see what God has in store for us.  Even more exciting, we want to see how our little community of ACFOC can make an impact globally.

It has been an incredibly encouraging and humbling experience to know that so many of our friends and family are supporting & praying for us.  We have seen God at work, and despite many challenges, we know He is sending us to represent Him in Armenia.  We truly desire that we would be worthy representatives of Christ.

Please be praying for us in the weeks ahead.  Pray that our flights go smoothly.  Pray that as impossible as it may sound, that we will somehow be able to get into Armenia with all of our luggage, no hassles at customs, and a team well rested!
