Hi Family, Friends and Partners,
We have big news! We are moving to Ireland! That’s right you read that correctly… IRELAND.
After many weeks of deliberation with the International Director for Rhema Europe, Africa and the Middle East we have decided that we will go to Ireland as we begin to transition into our new roles.
Why Ireland? Good question!
Over the next 6 months the International Rhema Office for Europe, Africa and the Middle East will move from Bonn, Germany to London, United Kingdom and as the Directors begin their own transition it was important that we have that freedom of movement to fulfill what God is asking us to do and being in Ireland will enable us to do that.
So what does that mean for us? Chris is leaving this week for Ireland (Friday the 11th of December). Amelia and all 4 kids will make their way back to Tulsa for Christmas, New Years and meetings with the Directors before they leave on the 6th of January for the Europe . Then we make our journey onward to Ireland. It will be 27 days the kids won’t see their Dad. From Ireland we will travel as needed for ministry.
There is a lot of work to be done between now and the 6th of January. More flights to book (these flights are 7 hrs rather than 30+ hrs as Chris experienced with them in October), accommodation (rental) to secure, a reliable car to purchase and drive across Europe as needed (as well as it being the family car), local schooling to be organised for William, Sebastian and Benjamin (uniforms, books and stationery), visas to finalise, and then we have William’s 12th birthday, Amirah’s 2nd birthday, Christmas and New Years are all in between.
The next 4 weeks are going to be huge for our family. This will better position us to accomplish the vision that God has placed in us… to be part of new Bible schools being established, existing schools growing, leaders being strengthened, and churches being planted. BUILDING THE KINGDOM.
How do we plan to get all of this done? With your help! We are inviting you to partner with us to accomplish all that God has asked us to do in the next 4 weeks.
We are believing for:
- $10,000 (one off seed to help this part of the vision): 200 people @$50 or 100 people @ $100. Give what you feel led to give.
- 50 new monthly partners (for the ongoing work and support)
This will be an amazing journey for us all as we partner together to see the next part of Rhema’s history in Europe, Africa and the Middle East established and positioned to BUILD the Kingdom.
“And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus.”
Much love to you all,
Chris, Amelia, William, Sebastian, Benjamin and Amirah.
