Dear Brothers and Sisters,
A new season has begun in the life of the Young family. In late June I received a phone call from a friend who wanted to know if I would be interested in working with him for a Christian ministry called Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF). CHF works through local churches to meet the needs of poor communities and to promote evangelism. The position I have been offered involves training and equipping the leadership of churches who have partnered with CHF so they can better serve and evangelize their neighbors.
Lauren and I sense the Lord’s hand in opening up this new ministry to us, and we are pursuing it, trusting that He has called us to it. I will be starting with CHF September 12. Since we will no longer will be living off support, we ask that lieu of supporting us, you prayerfully consider supporting To Every Tribe. If you are interested, please let us know.
God has led us through an amazing journey since I first came to To Every Tribe – from the farms and fishing towns of Northern Mexico to the woods & hills of central Georgia; from the mountains, valleys, and villages of Oaxaca back to the fields and resacas of South Texas. The past six years have been an adventure full of twists and turns, joys and sorrows, challenges and pleasures, and Lauren and I have been constantly upheld by the prayers and encouragement of all of you who have so faithfully partnered with us. Thank you for all you have done to “hold the rope” for us.
Please continue to pray for our family during this time of transition to San Antonio. Please also continue to pray for our adoption, that God would bring us the child he has for us soon. Also, please keep praying for To Every Tribe and the work God is doing through them. Our family has been blessed to be a part of To Every Tribe, and we will continue to pray for and promote their ministry.
Thank you to all of you for lifting us up in prayer, encouraging, and supporting us over the past six years. We would not have made it through all that God has led us through if you had not been faithfully praying for us and caring for us. Lauren, Matthias, and I have been blessed immensely during this past chapter of our lives by getting to see God provide for all of our needs through the loving support of the body of Christ.
As we move forward we will not forget the kindness and blessings we have been given, the lessons we have learned, or the mighty works we have seen God do. We trust that God will use all of those to glorify himself through us in San Antonio.
May God bless you all. May God use you mightily to proclaim His gospel and advance his kingdom. Thank you for your faithful partnership with us. We love you all.
Grace & Peace,
Will, Lauren, and Matthias Young
