12 May Kidd Family Prayer Letter – May 2020
Dear Friends and Co-Laborers in Christ,
Most of you have probably heard, but our flight to leave on May 14th has been cancelled. We were able to reschedule our departure date for July 2nd. Lord willing, things in the United States will begin to open up more and Cape Verde will be allowing foreigners to enter the country by that time.
We have spent the last few weeks at out home in Pennsylvania. This is the house that I, my mother, and my grandmother was raised in. There are family memories and treasures stashed all throughout the house. We have been enjoying going through things as we are packing them away. It has definitely been a challenge deciding what things to take with us, what to pack away, and what to get rid of.
We are so very grateful for the various ways in which God provides. We have seen Him provide for emotional, physical, financial, spiritual needs in ways that we never could have imagined. I am so glad that we serve a God who knows what we need before we do and has a solution in place before the need arises.
Would you please pray with us for the scores of missionaries who are in countries less developed than the USA? The items for basic daily needs are not always as readily available as they are here. Also, the nationals to whom they minister are struggling in ways which we don’t have to deal with. It is certainly heartbreaking to see people you know and love in need and have limited resources available with which to help them.
We also ask that you pray with us for more regular supporters (monthly, quarterly, etc). I hesitate to mention finances, but the reality is that it takes money to do the work of the ministry.
We are going to Cape Verde regardless, but we will be able to be more effective with more ministry support.
Thank you all for your faithful prayer on our behalf and that of Preach Evangelistic Ministries.
In His Service,
The Kidd Family
Josh & Jenny, Carissa, Elizabeth, Robert, Sarah, Natalie & Carver
