It is official!
We have finally started!
It is official.
Yesterday we were accepted as fully appointed missinoaries of the Assemblies of God to the country of Costa Rica.
It was a really big day here!
We are so humbled, and excited, and a little scared. . .
We are getting ready for a new way to view things. And learn alot about iteneration, a double OO account, booking services, promoting ourselves, prayer cards, etc.
And we are ready. We are excited to watch and see what God is going to do. And how He is going to do it. We have converted the dinning room in to a home office, and learned excel, how to print envelopes, design stationary, etc.
The girls are working on their own blog, and working through their own fears, excitement, and futre plans.
But we as a family are so in need of God to prepare us.
Prepare our steps, Prepare on hearts, Prepare our hands, Prepare the way, Prepare the Cartwrights.
We accepted the call to missions with humble hearts, wanting to serve God, and answer a call He placed on us. We are excited to discover some of the great things God has for us. So our prayer is that we are guided by his voice, and not a paper trial through iteneration, and that we share His passion for the lost and hurting people of Latin America, not our personal agenda and our budget, that young children, families, and older saints are inspired to answer the call to missions, and that we continue to look to our Father for the answers.
We are excited to share this journey with you.
" to prepare God's people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up." Ephesians 4:12
Oh by the way. . . we got the call on my birthday, just another way my father lavishes gifts on me. . . Oh How He Loves Me. . .
