An update…long overdue!

So most of you have already been sent an email giving you an update on our situation, but I know that we weren’t able to get everyone’s contact information before we left so I wanted to make sure everyone would be caught up.

We hope this update finds you all enjoying the holiday season! We know that it has been a while since you’ve gotten an update and we apologize. We also know that this letter isn’t what you’re probably expecting but if you would please take some time to read it we would be grateful. (see letter below) For those of you who have questions or concerns, we would love to be able to sit down and share our experiences with you. We feel that we have learned a lot and want nothing more than to give insight on ways to continue supporting the ministry here in Mitchell’s Plain. Thank you so much for your love, prayers and support. Without you we would have never made it this far.

To our financial supporters and prayer partners,

We want to start by saying thank you so much for your prayers and financial support! We began our journey to Mitchell’s Plain with great enthusiasm (and fear) of the unknown while also doing our best to stand on the theme of “Fully Relying on God”. We have come to realize over the past 7 weeks that our inexperience and a lack of structure have contributed to our inability in reaching the kids of Mitchell’s Plain. Our experience level does not match the need of this current ministry. We feel that we lack the leadership skills and are not well enough equipped in order to be successful in running the FROG center.

Neither our desire nor our dedication to spread the gospel with children is diminished but we have concluded that we need to find a ministry that has a structured environment where we can be trained and gain the necessary experience to be successful on the mission field.

The love and effort that has been put forth to build the FROG Center, Molly’s Place and the mission home are wonderful and deserve an entire team and a structure that can be successful for many years to come. We do not have the skills at this time to accomplish that task.

Based on these factors and much prayer we feel it is in the best interest of everyone involved that we return to the states and access what we feel God wants us to do next.

The children deserve more than the two of us can provide them at this time.  We hope and pray to maintain our relationships with the people in Mitchell’s Plain because our lives will be forever changed. We will take with us all the memories and wonderful experiences we have had with each of them.

We love you and thank you for all your prayers and support!

Jeremy and Sarah
