Spotlight on Missions
From Michael & Tessa Curcuro
“Time is flying by as we prepare to leave in January! Our official departure date is January 10th. We are both continuing to work during the week, and we have been very thankful to have flexible jobs to allow us to prepare paperwork, doctors’ appointments, and other odds & ends things. Packing will begin in earnest very soon. Thank you to everyone who has encouraged us with words, notes, prayer, and finances. We have appreciated your dinner invitations, notes, and kind words more than we know how to express! You really are a blessing to us in a major time of life change, and we praise the Lord for you. Our language learning has slowed down as times of busyness have increased. We continue to use Rosetta Stone and flashcards as much as possible. I have even quizzed Michael while he drives on occasion! Please pray for our language retention between now and when we are on the ground to begin our more intensive study of Spanish. Lord willing, we will begin one on one tutoring soon after we arrive. So far, we are still lacking monthly support. We are trusting that the Lord knows our needs and He knows exactly how and who He will use to provide for us. Would you please pray about being one of those people? Every bit counts! $1, $5, $20. No gift is too small when given to advance the kingdom of God. Also, as we get closer to our departure date, we will be looking to sell our vehicle. We have a 2006 Dodge Durango with about 106,000 miles on it. It has been a very trustworthy vehicle and is great in the snow. If you or anyone you know needs a car, please contact us! It would be a great blessing to have it sold before we depart!”
