I quit my job.
Support-raising has gone well for us; people have been very generous. The biggest limitation we’ve faced has been time. I’ve had a fulltime job, and with Sam Melissa basically does too. Then support-raising is a part-time job on top of that. So we’ve considered it a great week if we could spend 8-10 hours on support. At that pace, it would take a L O N G time to raise all the support we need.
But the good news is that we have enough money raised that it’s financially viable for me to start working fulltime on support. So starting Monday, that’ll be my gig. It will help us to be more organized and deliberate, it will free Melissa up not to have to do all the admin work, and we hope that putting in more like 40 hours a week will mean that God provides all the support we need quickly, so that we can get to Prague in early spring (hopefully March).
Please pray for my work– that I’ll be organized and disciplined, and that God will bless our efforts and get us to Prague ASAP.

selfishly praying ;)
I’ve found few things as liberating as leaving my full-time management job earlier this year. Congratulations, and I hope all goes well.
wow! Congratulations on reaching this point! We’ll continue praying for God’s blessings and provision.
Hope your prayers will be heard
Jake, I know you have had some set backs in support. In the past I told you about a ministry that grew from Grace Pres. in Ocala, FL, Harvest International. Harvest has sent mission families to many places like Haiti and Ukraine. One lady your Grand Mary’s age has been working with the orphan kids in Odessa for the past 13 years. She is home in Ocala now. She will not be going back except for a possible visit. Harvest may possibly be able to help you.
Danny Thomas runs Harvest. Danny is a great guy. Approaching Harvest could be the thing that puts you & your family on the way to Prague. If there is anything you would like to know or any way I can help ya’ll please let me know.
