MISSIONARY NEWS – THE MOORES – December brought not only a break from scheduled meetings and a chance to rest, spend time with family, and reflect on the birth of our Savior, but also a time to network and build contacts with multiple pastors. We attended a teen leadership conference at Josh’s home church in Maryland with many churches present with their youth groups. Josh also had the opportunity to attend a pastor’s fellowship breakfast in PA. It has been amazing to see the ways God has brought pastors and churches across our path. During the past year, we ended our time working at Maranatha Baptist University, moved from Wisconsin to Ohio, started full-time deputation, and welcomed our sweet son into the world. So far during our deputation travels, we have visited 33 churches in 9 states. Fifteen of those churches have prayerfully and sacrificially decided to partner with us, bringing our support level to 50%! We thank God for His incredible goodness! We desire to be in Ireland as soon as possible. Please pray with us that the rest of our needed support would come in this year, for details on getting our visas in place, and for decisions regarding our future move to Ireland. Thank you for your love, prayer, and support throughout 2014.
