Adios Amigos!

In less than 48 hours, we will be boarding the plane in Houston to head to our new home in the Dominican Republic.  We have packed our bags are are ready to go.  We are keeping a close eye on our friend Hurricane Isaac. He might determine some of our travel plans.
Our last month has been a great way to prepare for our new life and responsibilities in the DR. We wrapped up our training in Colorado Springs at MTI on August 17.  We are thankful for the things we learned and feel more equipped to enter into a new culture for the cause of Christ.

After 3 great weeks in Colorado we said our “goodbyes” and headed to Albuquerque to spend some time with Doug’s family where we took in a ball game, played countless hours of games, and just enjoyed spending time with Steve, Brandy and the kids. 
Currently, we are in Lake Jackson visiting with Margaret’s family, tying up loose ends and enjoying time with her parents and grandparents. Sleeping late, practicing Rosetta Stone, and playing games have been on the agenda.  Tonight the Williams’ family will join us in Lake Jackson and we are looking forward to our time with them before they take us to the airport on Saturday.

We fly out at 6am on Sunday morning (weather permitting) and should arrive in the DR at 2:00pm EST.  Thank you for your prayers and support to help us get us to this place.  We are grateful for the emails, notes of encouragement, texts, and voicemails.  We have made progress with our financial support but are still looking for those who are interested in partnering with us on a monthly basis.  If interested, click on the GIVE tab above.

Please continue to pray for us as we go.  For more specific requests, please visit our PRAYER page.

With great excitement and anticipation…

Mission Training International

A picture of us at Mission Training International in Colorado
Well, our journey has officially begun!  We arrived in Colorado Springs on Monday, July 30 to begin our 3 week training before heading to the Dominican Republic on August 26. It has been so encouraging to be with 40 other missionaries from several different sending organizations going to the far reaches of the world. We already feel like this training will be extremely beneficial as we begin our ministry in a foreign country.

Please pray for us as we continue to prepare to leave and serve the Lord in the D.R.  

Feel free to check back for updates.  This will be our primary way of communicating with others while we are serving overseas.

With Love,
The Becks
