The Groms

After completing my seminary degree in December, Cori Beth and I took some time in prayer and began moving full steam ahead in our support raising efforts. God has continually provided new supporters every week since then.

However, in the last month, the coronavirus pandemic has affected us through the cancellation of our speaking engagements at local churches and planned support raising trips. As we have reflected on the past month one word has begun to surface for us: grief. We praise God that we, and our families, are healthy at home but, there is a sense of loss that we all need to work through. A healthy process of grief ends not only in an acceptance of the situation but a recognition of how we can move forward.

Our hope in Christ enables us to reach that point. Because of that hope, we can partake in his mission here and now – even in the middle of a pandemic. Pray for us as we try to find ways to be the hands and feet of Jesus to those in need around us. Also, please pray that God would grant us favor with those we meet with virtually, from home, as we continue to press on toward our goal in support raising.  Thank you for your prayers.
