Intercessory Missionaries at Underground House of Prayer in Sioux Falls, SD

Month: June 2014

Times are a changin’…

We are moving away from Kansas City TOMORROW! This comes with an array of mixed emotions. We are so grateful for the time the Lord gave us here, we will never forget His faithfulness to us. Jeff and I have both “grown up” in a way here in KC, and had many life changing times of prayer as God marked our lives. We will never be the same! We are crying today as we leave a lot of memories here. (We both have spent almost 10,000 hours in this prayer room. WOW THAT’S A LOT! That’s 416 days 24/7 straight, or over a year 24/7 straight! haha that’s fun to think about!)

And yet we are beyond excitement to venture to Sioux Falls to labor in the house of prayer there. We cannot wait to put our hands to the plow in prayer, as missionaries to that city. We are gaining a LOT by moving to that Sioux Falls. As we load all our earthly possessions into the U-haul tonight with our friends who have become family, we will grieve some losses but celebrate so much victory and growth! And I’m sure shed a few tears.

Thanks for your prayers as we transition, 

Jeff and Bethany


Haha that all rhymes!

Here are some crazy pics of what it looks like to demolish a prayer room before you construct and beautify it:)

More to come in the future-

Canoe Trip!

While we were in Ohio, we had an amazing canoe trip with my family… perfect weather, and perfect fun! We even packed a lunch and pulled into a marsh area to eat. We went through a couple “rapid” water parts along the river, which was scary and fun!!!

Enjoy the pictures!

(I also included a picture of Jeff and the nieces and nephews running around in a “bush maze” at an arboretum we visited as a family! HA!)

New Prayer Room and New House in Sioux Falls

Last weekend Bethany and I purchased our house in Sioux Falls.  We have one more month until we fully we move in!

We also received a new building for the prayer room, which was much needed.  Our current room is only one room and everything is close quarters.  This new building has a larger prayer room portion, a nursery, classrooms, offices, and a kitchen and is being rented to us for almost the same rent as our current room!  There are some renovations that need to be done this month before we can fully use the building for the prayer room in July.
