Dear Pastor and Praying Friends,
These last couple months, we made our first major trip on deputation. We traveled over 7,000 miles and visited 17 churches, in 4 different states. We raised roughly 12% of our support goal. We learned a lot through our first-hand experience. It was amazing to watch as God took care of us while we were on the road. The love offerings were very helpful as we had very little support when we started out. We only had to pay for a hotel two nights out of the two months we were on the road. This is due in most part to the generosity of church members, friends and family who let us stay with them while we were in the area. We were overwhelmed with generosity and kindness everywhere we went.
Nate adjusted well to the traveling. We learned that we can travel about six hours in a day with him. He was sick when we first started out. We had to take him to the doctor a couple times, but he’s better now and God supplied for the doctor visits. He’s been a real trooper through all of the change he has gone through.
We will be spending the next few months at home. I have a few churches scheduled in Indiana for the summer. This has worked out great because it gives us time to regroup and evaluate all we learned in the past two months. It also gives us more time to get organized at home. We move out of our apartment and in with Rob’s parents just a couple weeks before starting this trip, so things were pretty much in disarray still when we left.
We had another surprise while we were traveling. We found out that Rebekah is pregnant with our second child. Our best guess is that the baby is due in October or November. Because we were traveling, we were unable to have our first appointment with the doctor, so we know very little so far. We are currently scheduled for an appointment the first week of June.
Thank you for your prayer and financial support.
Please pray that:
We will continue scheduling meetings(we are already scheduling for 2017)
For a healthy pregnancy
That churches will continue bringing us on for support
For Christ’s Glory,
Rob, Rebekah, Nathaniel Greene
