It is INSANE how fast time has gone by! It feels like just a couple of weeks ago we made the announcement we were being guided back to the states. Now, we are just days from living out of suitcases!
God is blessing us with His provision. We are VERY, very close to reaching our financial goal. We have been able to sell almost everything that we owned here in Costa Rica. We have a $6000 car waiting for us that we got for 1/2 price! We had some last minute tattoo clients come in that has also brought in some money for our trip as well! We only lack $900 to meet our goal (please pray for that)!
It never ceases to amaze me how God provides. 9 times out of 10, He doesn’t provide in the ways that we expect Him to. It is almost like He purposefully finds other ways of provision just to show you that He really is in control. We have learned to trust Him regardless of what situations look like and regardless if help is or isn’t coming from where we think it should be coming from.
Amanda and I are down to the wire on time and preparing to leave and are in serious need of prayers. We have invested $2000 into our tattoo studio here in Costa Rica (all big items we can’t take with us). About a month and a half ago, a local shop owner expressed interest in buying our studio from us (he even paid a $500 deposit for us to hold it). This $2000 is a big chunk of what we were counting on to return. Now we are days from leaving and he isn’t sure he will have any money to buy it. Please pray that this guy will come up with the money. We don’t have the time to find another buyer and we could use this money for our return expenses.
We want to thank everyone for all the help they have offered us throughout the years. Your faithfulness in prayer and financial support has been such an integral part of what God has accomplished through us!
