Preparing Our H.E.A.R.T.S

Beginning next week we have the pleasure of spending three weeks at a missionary training school in Lake Wales, Florida.  Our family is looking forward to unplugging from our frantic schedules and focusing on preparing our hearts for missionary service.

Here is a short video that describes some of what our family will be learning.

We will need to focus on our training until the second week of June.  That will mean no updates, letters, phone calls, or emails from us while we are at h.e.a.r.t.  That also means our fundraising efforts will be put on hold until we return.  This is of some concern for us as we are only three months away from our target leave date.

If you are the praying type will you please join us in prayer as our fundraising window is become uncomfortably short.  Pray that God will lead us to the people He has prepared to give.  Pray that our funding comes through so we may leave on time.

If you are the giving type (many are both prayers and givers) please click on our family photo below to be taken to our donation page.  We need your help now more than ever!

During the time we are at h.e.a.r.t. we will publish a teaching series that Timothy gave at the Hillside Ave. Church of God called The Commands of Christ.  Our prayer is that this series will help you prepare your heart for serving Christ right where you are!

In His Grip,


The Downings
