Finished our CMA Workshop this week. There was lots of information to process, but we are very excited to begin the process of building our support network!
In the upcoming weeks we hope to:
-find and begin temporary employment
-organize, write, and send out our first prayer letter
-build our support network
-start booking up our calendar with speaking engagements to get the word out about the importance of children and youth ministry and how people can get involved with what God is doing on the American Indian Field in Arizona
We also have a new group on Facebook for our ministry. http://www.facebook.com/jlbirkey This Facebook group will announce when we have written a new blog, and other short snippets of new information. We hope to see you on there and that you will also continue to lift us up in prayer as we press onward in this journey.

We've fallen behind on writing new blog entries already, but that doesn't mean there haven't been exciting things going on! We've been busy! At the end of June, we left First Mennonite Church in Morton to begin our process of support raising. Before we could start on that though, we took a trip to Ireland to see Jon's brother Phillip's wedding. Last week, we were back home in Indiana and began getting settled in. This week marks the beginning of our first full week of training at WGM, called the CMS Workshop. CMS stands for Champion Migration Strategy. Basically, it's learning the process of building a support network and how to get people involved with our cause. It's a lot of information all at once, but very helpful. We were also happily surprised to find a stack of prayer cards waiting for us there! We hope to post a picture of them and get them out soon. We hope to keep you up to date more often as we begin this process and seek to find ways to get people excited and involved in what God is doing on the American Indian Field in Arizona. Blessings, and more to come soon,
