It all began with prayer. Our first marriage mission trip was the fall of 2006. The night before we left, our dear friends came to pray over us. And here we are praying together again as we begin our 10th year on the road. Albeit a different state and a different mission, the friendship remains and the prayers ascend. Only God. So good.
We’re hitting the road once again. Our mission? To reconcile and strengthen marriages across our nation. Check out our Day 1 video. You can also follow our Sept. 4th-Oct. 2nd journey on our Facebook page.
“Some boast in chariots, others in horses; but we will boast in the name of the Lord our God.” Psalm 20:7
We’re preparing to hit the road again this fall. Our mission? To reconcile and strengthen marriages. This trip will take place from September 4th-October 2nd and cover approximately 4,000 miles of the eastern U.S. Although we have pre-set engagements at various churches, we’re reminded once again that what happens in between those stops is also of utmost importance to God. There are many separated and hurting spouses in need of hope and encouragement. Please take a moment to pray for those who are longing for reconciliation. “ Jesus looked at them and said, ‘With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.'” Matthew 19:26
As we write this, we’ve just submitted our second manuscript to our publisher. It’s a humbling thing to have the chance to write again, and to proclaim that God indeed has a mission for EVERY marriage. This new book (which is scheduled to be released by Kregel in 2017) includes 30 videos of 9 amazing couples. Readers will be able to access these interviews via QR codes which will be imbedded in the text. We’re looking forward to sharing these special couples with you in the future as we count down to the book’s launch. (Pictured below are Bill and Deb. God restored their marriage after a seven-year divorce. We had the privilege of attending their re-wedding ceremony!)
This fall we will again hit the road as marriage missionaries. Our mission is to reconcile broken marriages across the nation and to strengthen marriages and families in the Church. The dates and itinerary for this trip are beginning to take shape. Right now, we’ve booked engagements in various eastern states. Click here for a list of our seminars and workshops. If you’d like more information, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Filming is already underway for our newest book. As we did with Marriage on the Mend, QR codes will be imbedded in the pages of this second book which will be released by Kregel in 2017. These codes link readers to the testimonies of ten couples who are all in the process of discovering God’s mission for their marriage. Stay tuned!
“The miracle happened…” That’s how her e-mail began. Having just returned from a 21-day marriage mission trip, we’d been regrouping and processing all that transpired during the trip. But Saturday night, we received an e-mail and there were those precious words, “The miracle happened…”
The woman went on to say that her husband had returned home just a week after we gathered together with her to pray for that very miracle. But the real truth is, there have been many people faithfully praying for this particular marriage for a long time.
God is able. He can reach down into the rubble and ruin. He can heal. Restore. Reconcile.
The journey ahead for this couple is long. The miracle doesn’t end when a spouse returns. It’s only just the beginning, but make no mistake…
Miracles. Still. Happen.
