We wanted to let all of you know how grateful we are. We typically do not send updates within a week of the last one but we do need to let you know of the events of the past week. Of the $450/month that we have been needing, we are now only in need of $150/month to be cleared to head back to RVA at the beginning of August. We praise God for the provision through those who are led to partner with us in this way.
As you can see we have just a little more to go to reach this target by the end of the coming week. We are asking that you first pray with us in this area for the next several days and second prayerfully consider partnering with us in this way. We have faith that God will provide what is needed. We anticipate that our next update that we are planning on sending next week will be with the news that we are fully supported.
If you are considering supporting us in this way please take a look at this link: Giving. If you are wanting to send a cheque. Please make it payable to Africa Inland Mission Int. Canada and include a note either in the memo line or a separate piece of paper as “monthly (or one time gift) support for the Dubbers” If this is a one time gift or ongoing monthly support please let us know with an email and send the cheque to:
Africa Inland Mission Int. Canada
1641 Victoria Park Ave.
Scarborough, ON M1R 1P8
Some have been asking what our plans are for this next term of service. We are considering going for two years as that will be when Cassidy will graduate. We would then take a 6 month home assignment furlough to come back to Canada. This will then put us in a time frame for us to be at RVA for Titus graduating in two and a half years after that.
We are mindful that even though people are giving to our support and the ability to go and teach, you are giving to God, not to the Dubbers. We are reminded of the words of Paul in 2 Corinthians 8:1-15. It begins,
“And now, brothers and sisters, we want you to know about the grace that God has given the Macedonian churches. In the midst of a very severe trial, their overflowing joy and their extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability.”
We know that many of you give sacrificially and generously to missions. We thank the Lord for the many partners we have in this ministry as well as for those who are supporting missions around the world. We pray that, like the Macedonians churches, we will all have overflowing joy as a result of our faith, grace in the Lord, and the spread of the Gospel.
