Hey everyone! We have an exciting project that we are going to start up (In fact has already started)! As you might have guessed, the project is being called "Passing the Torch" (From the title if you read those sort of things) and it is exactly that!
We have heard of so many people that have expressed their desire to become missionaries, to move to other areas or even countries and to work in full time ministry but don't have any clue on where to start. This project seeks to remedy that!
We are taking down some notes as we go through this moving experience and into the months after we arrive down in Haiti. Then we'll flex the writer muscle in us to come up with a real practical, easy-to-read guide that we'll put up right here on the Fisher Missions website!
We can't do this alone and we are going to need the help of a couple different groups of people. Firstly, those that have questions. You are the one who wants to go into ministry but you are getting hung up on 1 or 2 things, or even the whole process. We need your questions. We are here to help YOU.
The second group is those of you that ARE in full time ministry already. If you have any tips, tricks, or advice for people going into ministry, then we need you too! You can get in touch with us right here in the comments section, over on the "Contact Us" page, on our facebook, or shoot us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org (Guess there is no excuse for not having enough ways to contact us)
Middle of July and it has been pretty hot here in Colorado. Thankfully, the weather has chilled out a bit and so most of the wildfires running across the state have been contained. I don't want to take up too much of your time and plus, there isn't too much to update everyone on!Databases.... Yikes!!!!
Kate has another week left of work with a car show this weekend. I've requested time off for when the Baby does come, thankfully the company is being flexible with it. Babies have a tendency to come whenever it pleases them, but the more I think about it the more I kinda like that. We get so wrapped up in our schedules sometimes that we can miss all the things God is doing that isn't written on our calendar.
Kate and I are working on a new project for the future of Fishermissions. We are in the process of creating a database for all of our contacts and supporters. With it, we hope to add another layer of accountability in our relationship with all of you. I never knew it before, but databases can be a very, very powerful tool. The only downside is that database design is an extensive topic (I'm currently 27 pages through a 189 page tutorial on the subject), but we'll be hard at work on it!
Hope that was short enough! Does anybody have a preference to the length/frequency at which we update? Lengthier monthly updates? Shorter weekly updates? Both or somewhere in between?
