Thank you so much for your prayers! We feel them every day and they make a HUGE difference! I can’t tell you how much it means to us to know that we have such wonderful friends and family cheering us on and lifting us up! God has been demonstrating His faithfulness throughout our lives and every step of our journey!
One of our recent prayer requests has been a job for Dawn that allows her to participate in the training, bring in some much needed income, and allow us to have time together as a family. She had been looking online for opportunities that would be a good fit for her and our family and really hadn’t found much. We then heard about a paid childcare position on Sunday nights at Brentwood Baptist’s south campus (called Station Hill) and thought it might be a supplemental job as well as help make some new friends. Not to mention it is less than 5 minutes from our house! Dawn sent them an email to ask about the job and then went in to the office to pick up the application. As God would have it, their staff had just been talking about us (the TRAIN Residents) and praying for us. As Dawn talked to the Administrative Assistant, she shared with her that she could come back to drop off the application during her office hours which are 9a-2p Monday through Thurs. Dawn then shared with her that she was looking for a job with similar hours and the woman responded with “oh really?” It just so happens that she and her husband are moving next month and her position is going to be available! They asked Dawn to submit her resume and will soon begin the process of interviewing for that position. Not only that, but I will be meeting the staff of the Station Hill campus tomorrow and we were already scheduled to visit their campus this coming Sunday! God is SO good!! He knows what we need even before we do!
Of course it isn’t a done deal, so please pray that God will allow Dawn to get this job if that’s His plan. If it isn’t His plan, please pray with us that He will open up the right opportunity at the right time. We will definitely keep you posted on what develops.
In other news, Bailey lost her 3rd tooth last night and started Kindergarten this week! They had an assessment/ orientation on Monday and a half day Kindercamp today and will do that again on Friday. She will start going full days every day starting Monday. Please pray for Bailey to enjoy school while she learns and that she will make friends quickly.
Here are some other things that we would love to have you praying with us about:
> As we dive into our training here, please pray for me to manage my time and schedule well with all the readings, assignments, and interviews that each of the residents have to do on a daily and weekly basis.
> For us to develop relationships with our neighbors for the purpose of sharing the Gospel
> For me as I network and connect with other pastors and church planters
> That God will help us pray bigger prayers and dream bigger dreams and that His vision will become clearer and clearer for the church He is calling us to plant.
> Stay tuned for more updates and prayer requests!
We love and appreciate you!!
Spreading His Fame…
Todd, Dawn & Bailey
