Jason and Lisa Hovingh
For all of the disappointments that COVID has created we have experienced far more blessings. Enriched times with family and friends, a son-in-law as of August 28 and more time with our 1829 small group. We are so thankful. Having extended our time here and then being delayed in launching to our new location we are now in motion to depart within the next month. Phew. It feels sudden and yet we see a window of opportunity to go for it. In choosing this direction we know that the Lord is in control of our steps so we would like to invite you to pray with us for timing for departure, wisdom in choosing the best airline to our destination and favor with immigration upon arrival.

Upon arrival we will jump back into language learning and everything else needed to transition into a new place. We know that your support goes with us. Thank you for being a body of believers that embrace us and our family every time we return. We are confident in your care for us. If you are interested in finding out more, pick up our brochure at the Rockford Total Impact Table or send us an email: [email protected].
