October, 2016

Dear Praying Friends,

Time continues to hurry along as we get ever closer to the holidays and the end of 2016! With our departure for Knysna racing toward us, we are being challenged to trust God and cling to Him in all things. Alyssa’s health remains a huge concern, as each doctor we’ve visited seems to be mystified as to why she’s experiencing constant pain. To those of you who’ve been praying for her, thank you – and please don’t stop! We’re in process with another round of tests and appointments that’ll take us well into December. Please pray we find answers, and that God’s peace will overwhelm our dear littlest! We must trust Him fully during this time of uncertainty.

Our support-raising is progressing slowly, but our outlook remains positive. We have a number of opportunities to present our ministry to churches and individuals over the next several weeks. These meetings will be crucial to us realizing our goal of being fully supported in time to move to South Africa in August. Please pray that God will lead us to those whom He has prepared to support His work. We are blessed to know that in all things, He alone is sovereign. While at times it’s challenging to rest in this truth, any alternative would certainly be ruinous. We know that God will provide for that which He wills!

Thank you so much to all who have been praying for us, supporting us, and checking in with us regularly. Your encouragement and support is the very thing God has used to sustain us thus far along this journey. Please let us know how we can pray for you, as you faithfully bring us before the throne of God. To Him be glory in all things!

Blessings to you all,
The Coon Family
