October 2013 Prayer Letter

Dear Friends and Family,

Fall is here and things are picking up! Each month that passes brings us closer to our goal! Last month, we saw 1 new supporting church and several other potential supporters. Although, Michelle and Lila could not travel during this time, Jeremy drove well over 4,200 miles in September! He had meetings in 5 churches, including 1 missions conference, in the states of NJ, PA, MD, MI, and TN. During some time on the phones, we were able to book several more meetings in FL. As for deputation, we are getting much closer to seeing the finish line. Though we have not officially set a departure date as of yet, we are working out the details to leave in Spring 2014!

Last month, we spent some time preparing both our home and our car (AKA our second home) for our next baby girl. Michelle is due on October 2nd, so we should see our second baby girl any day! We were also able to celebrate Lila's second birthday! She is growing into a very sweet little girl! During our time at home, it was a blessing to be here for our 2013 missions month at our home church. It is so exciting to see how we can have a part in supporting missionaries all over the world! We serve such an amazing God! Though we long to be in Nicaragua, we must always remember that our present missions field is wherever the Lord has us at each moment. It never fails to do our heart good to be involved in telling people about our Savior, Jesus Christ!

Over the last few weeks, the Lord has greatly impressed upon us the need to pray. As we look upon the state of our communities, our nation, and our world- we desperately need God to to an amazing work. The only answer for the problems of this world is Jesus Christ! Will you pray for us as we seek to bring the Gospel of Salvation to those who have never heard? This month, please pray for:

1. Michelle and our second baby due on October 2nd.
2. The Lord to use us as a blessing and encouragement to the churches we have the privilege of meeting.
3. The Lord to guide, direct, and supply our support needed to bring the Gospel to Nicaragua.

In Christ,
Jeremy, Michelle, and Lila Blanz
