Dear Friends and Fellow Laborers, December 2022
November was an incredible month for us! We are at 95% support and three new churches have decided to partner! Please continue to pray that we will reach the 100% mark before the end of the year. This month I was also ordained! Not only is this another step to getting to Indonesia, but it is a personal encouragement to me to have men that know me share that they see God working in my life in this way.
The Lord has blessed Vision Baptist Missions with a new campus, but that also means our mailing address has changed. Our new support address is: P.O.Box 647 Dawsonville, GA. 30534.
Unfortunately, we have not heard any progress concerning our visas. We understand this process takes time and we are still within the 4-6 month time frame originally stated. Would you pray with us for the visas to be provided in God’s timing and for patience while waiting. We realize His timing is different than the timing for which we were hoping, but in it all we see His hand as things are coming together well at the end of deputation. We just need the final 5% support, and our set-fund is only about $10,000 shy of our intended goal! With the extra time that we have been given, we should be able to meet both of those goals before it is time for our move.
We have realized it takes a lot to start over in a new country. Without your help, it would have taken at least an additional year of waiting and saving to before we would be able to make the move. However, through you, God has provided. We have been saving as much as we can from monthly support, and we have received several additional gifts to help with that fund. We just want to take a moment to thank you for your kindness and generosity. We do not take these gifts for granted. There has been much sacrifice and selflessness shown by you all, and we cannot thank you enough for the help and blessing you have been to our family and ministry.
With Love in our hearts,
In service to the King,
Jens, Gina, and Thalia Looney
Your Missionaries to Indonesia
