God is in Control
All this to say, God is good and we are moving forward. We are currently at 56%! We have been parked near 50% for the last year as we focused on earning a living and paying off some debts, but we are moving forward again. Thank you all for your continued sacrifice.
Also, the funds that have continued to come in while we were working full-time have accumulated to the point where it has met our budgeted outgoing expenses. This budget covers the cost of all our stateside training and preparation, getting our family to Costa Rica, our first semester of language school, renting an apartment, enrolling our kids in school, setting up house, paying for visas, and miscellaneous relocation expenses. This is a HUGE blessing. God has been moving all along.
