We met Colin and Amy Lyons at our church marriage retreat last April. Talking with another Faith Center couple who were raising support for overseas missions was amazing. Like us, less than 50% of their monthly support was pledged, and the road ahead looked long.
In late May we had our big surge up to 87%, and I (Jody) told Amy, “You guys are next–you’re going to have a big surge too.”
Well, yesterday we went to their going away party. In two weeks they fly to Germany to work in a Youth for Christ-style ministry with U.S. youth, dependents of U.S. military personnel. Check their website for more info: LyonsInLederhosen.com.
We are very happy and excited for them. God has worked powerfully in the last few months to get their monthly support to 100% (over $6,000/month!), and He has increased their faith and trust in Him through the process.
Vayan con Dios, Amy and Colin! We have a tiny bit of jealousy amidst our confidence that God will get us to the mission field too, in His perfect time. And we’re joining you in saying, “Yea, God!”
