Australia and back again...

September 2015 Update

We've been back for a week now from our visit to Townsville, Australia and we're still spinning from the trip! We had an incredible time at the conference as we reconnected with friends, were imparted to, had times of honoring our leaders and also being honored for our past service... it was so life-giving for where we are at in our forming stages of a new YWAM ministry. 

As we literally revisited the streets of our past, it was a faith building time to remember the words God had spoken for us to move to California all those years ago. Above is a photo of us in front of a house that we were trying to purchase about 7 years ago... this is what the catalyst for us to ask God deep questions about our future which landed us in San Jose starting a YWAM center.

We have not kept it a secret that this last season has been one of the most challenging we've faced since being here. For me, it has been less about trusting God in the climate and circumstances of the place in which we live and has been more about if I REALLY trust Him when I am limited in my capacity and physical ability. I'd like to say that it has been as easy and shutting my eyes really tight and wishing my faith into existence, but it hasn't. I have had to let go of my control and let God reveal His faithfulness in my inability... NOT AN EASY THING TO DO. However, YOU have helped while we've been growing in faith and stepping out as He speaks.


 We want to thank you for rallying when we've needed Kingdom family around us.
We feel encouraged and loved on in the times we've needed it most. Please know that we are so grateful for every prayer, every financial gift, every email and every word.

In just a few weeks we will be hosting out first Friends Banquet! This will be a time to celebrate the last 5 years of us in San Jose. This will also be a great introduction for those who have been wondering what the Haythorpes do and how to get involved. Don't miss it!

Joy is heading on her first solo missions trip without mom and dad. She's going with a church group and we're entrusting her to some dear friends of ours for that time. We are excited to see her exercise her own faith in this way. Please be praying for her, as well as mom and dad, as we all step out in faith.

What's next...

We've been limited, in some ways, to go in the full-on manner we had previously. We are constantly reminding ourselves that this race is NOT a sprint, but a marathon.

We are currently prepping for the DTS in September 2016 and recruiting staff for the reboot in the Spring. We are restructuring a bit and getting further training as we step into more.

We continue to fund-raise for our monthly living costs so we have a better financial health. We plan to be doing ministry LONG-TERM! We desire to be moving forward in ministry without the pull of the Urgent Needs due to a deficit in our monthly committed support. We have seen incredible progress over the years but need to see a bit more. Join with us in prayer over this, contending in the Spirit for new partners to join the team and see San Jose transformed for the Kingdom!

As we end this month, we have a few needs.  Please consider, pray, fight for and believe with us for this month and the years to come.


Blessings upon blessings over you!
Angela & Luke
