Avin and I have also created our joint blogspot to update you as a couple and create places for you to interact with us. I will keep this site updated as well but please feel free to visit us at www.joelandavinreimer.blogspot.com for more information!
Here is what has been going on for us!
We are amazed that it is already March and how quickly this year is flying by. There have been so many incredible things that have happened to re-confirm our vision and our decision to join the PAOC (Pentecostal Assemblies of Canada) as Global Workers (missionaries), and our plans to return to Cambodia. We know with our whole hearts that we are following God’s will for our lives and are enjoying the process of “going”.
This past week we had the privilege of joining the PAOC at their annual pastors’ conference for the BC and Yukon districts. What a blessed time shared with some inspiring men and women of God! We were commissioned with 3 other Global Workers (missionaries) and were covered in prayer. The encouragement and love that this family shares, and has shared with us, is beyond encouraging.
This past month has been fun! We have had many opportunities to meet with a lot of you who support our vision. Thank you for all your words of encouragement! Plus, we were able to be a part of Christian Life Assembly’s Missions’ month! What a great way to highlight the work that is happening around the world through different Global Workers (missionaries).
So needless to say we have been busy! Working at the restaurants, fundraising, taking time with family and friends, and working with our churches wherever we can, time is flying by! We are preparing for a June/ July return and so we have also been working on growing our monthly support base. Since we are planning to be in Cambodia long-term, we are required to have at least 75% of our monthly donations/ support in place BEFORE we are allowed to purchase our plane tickets. This will allow us to leave with the confidence that we will be sustainable once we are out there. So we are preparing our hearts and minds, and God has been so gracious with us, as He continues to bless our connections and relationships along this path.
