Praying for the Postlewaites M.O.M.

This month please join us in praying for the Postlewaite family as they are moving to Bulgaria.  They will be flying to Bulgaria on February 17!  Just a day away!   They will join a church planting work in a very needy part of Eastern Europe. They are so eager to begin working with the Awtreys and the New Life Church in Svishtov in efforts to proclaim the HOPE of Christ in the midst of a “cold” culture, where very few have heard the Gospel. (borrowed from an earlier newsletter)  In 2010 the Postlewaites were appointed as missionaries and have been raising support.  The time has finally come for them to move overseas after months of support raising, preparation, and packing. 

Jonathan and Amy have two precious daughters Anna Grace and Jonna Faith (who are the same ages as our Ethan and Elliot).  We were blessed to meet this sweet family when we attended Bethany FWB in South Carolina.  Jonathan was the Youth Pastor there before my Joshua, and Amy & I seemed to click the first time we met.  Then when we were preggo at the same time with Anna Grace and Ethan our friendship grew even more.  Their love for the Lord and sharing hope with the people of Bulgaria is contageous.

PRAYER REQUESTS from their fwbgo.com page:
—For all four of us to daily grow in grace and knowledge of Jesus
—For good goodbyes with family and friends
—For our flight and move to go smoothly
—For us to quickly learn the language and make connections in the community of Svishtov
—For the growth of several in New Life Church who have come to Christ in recent months
—For a new English storytime for kids, where many connections are being made with unbelieving families

  1. Praise the Lord, just read an update from Amy that the girls started sleeping on Bulgarian time as soon as they moved and they found an apartment (the first one they looked at)that meets all their needs. God is so good!
