What do we do now?
Before we left we thought we knew the trajectory of ministry when we would arrive. Honestly and openly, we couldn't be more wrong (What else is new?!?). While some things eventually did go according to our expectations, we where reminded that ultimately we were not the authors of said plan, God was. Our hopes of jumping into a ministry aimed at the Roma community would have to be put on hold. This was both stressful and disappointing for a time. The situation we would arrive to is sensitive, and remains so. We made the decision early, that we would remain faithful to our calling, but patient in how God would move. We are glad, because He opened doors for ministry and has blessed our efforts. Over the next year we began the journey in planting an international church in the heart of Prague with close friends and colleague missionaries, Chris and Amy Hales. We know God has great things in store for Heart Prague International Church. We are especially excited for 2017, as we are launching children's ministry and hope to see youth, young adult and small groups to begin in the first half of the year.
Our hearts also remain broken for the most marginalized of people around us. We believe that one day, we will see these two intersect.
