We are well. Mary just finished her third semester at CanIL (two more to go). We are debt free, thanks to Benjamin's hard work, the immense hospitality of the Mock family, and the gifts and prayers of so many dear friends. In short: God is taking good care of us.
We are coming up on our first Anniversary (May 4th)! It has been a painful and grace-filled year. Please pray for our relationships with people here in Lynden, WA, especially with our generous hosts.
Mary will be in school through the summer. Ben will continue to work for POSX until his contract runs out at the end of May, and then we'll see if they want to keep him or not.
Please pray for the good people at Sunrise Baptist Church and Auburn Household of Faith who have embraced us in prayer and community.
We believe that God is directing us to go to Papua New Guinea. So far, we don't know what the process or structure of getting there is going to look like. We don't have sending organization yet, but both of us have a lot of peace right now, knowing that God will direct us in His own time.
God is good and we are filled and poured out, broken and remade according to His good purpose.
Thank you for your love and prayers.
Ben and Mary Grimm
