Prayer Letter Delays

This is a trial post to see if it gets sent out to our prayer letter email list. Because of the war in Ukraine, our email list provider, Mailchimp, has suspended all accounts associated with Russia, which includes ours because I originally signed up with them when we were in Russia. I have submitted documents on March 18 proving that we are no longer in Russia, but I am still waiting on Mailchimp to “investigate the appeal” to verify that my account complies with corporate policy. Meanwhile, I have no access to my regular email list.

For those of you who normally receive emails from us, we ask that you please be patient as we try to work through this with the company. In the mean time, prayer letters will be posted here on our website and I will work to recreate the email list in the event that the company refuses to work with us.

Thank you for understanding, and, most importantly, for your prayers for us as we minister in Corner Brook, Newfoundland!

    Soooo sorry for a holdup but remember God is in charge and in control
    We will continue to pray for you and your family
    You can continue to pray for Rich as he has heart issues and will probably have a heart transplant in the future. Breathing has been very hard and of course he needs a kidney transplant too, so we’re praying for both and he’ll be back to the old Rich what he used to be! He still makes jokes but I’m a nervous wreck. Thanks for your prayers too

    Praying for you to lean on His direction and guidance to help you. Trust and rest in Him for His answer or answers.

    Not sure if you are looking for confirmation, but I received this email.
