Exciting News from the Anderson Family

Dear Faithful Partners,

"Our steps are made firm by the Lord, when He delights in our ways." Psalm 37:23 NRSV

We would like to begin this letter with a word of gratitude. We wish we could truly express to you the appreciation we have for each of you. Over the past 2 years in ministry, you have prayed for us, supported us and encouraged us. You have shared our burdens and our joys as we serve the Lord. We know that God has blessed us richly with each and every one of you. You have walked this journey into ministry with us and taught us what it means to live with a grateful heart. Our lives are full because of the partnerships we have with you.

The second purpose of this letter is to present to you some changes in the way we serve the Lord. God has been stirring our hearts lately and we feel He is calling us on a new pilgrimage. In order to begin that journey, we feel God has released us from our assignment at Agape Flights. Our last day of service with Agape will be October 28th, 2011.

God has placed before us a new adventure in missions. Over the past month, we have heard God calling us to assume leadership positions at a different mission organization, which serves Haiti. Beginning on November 1st, we will begin our new missions assignment as the leaders of Haiti Care Mission. Lance will be the Mission Director and Lynn will work as Mission Coordinator. The mission will be based out of home and will be under the financial covering of Faith in the Family International. We feel this transition will allow us to combine the experience we have gained over the past two years with the gifts He has placed in us to serve Him in new and exciting ways. More information on Haiti Care Mission can be found in the enclosed brochure and more information about our new positions at Haiti Care Mission will be coming in the November Anderson Edition.

It is our greatest desire to serve the Lord with integrity and honor. We hope you can help us embrace this new adventure by continuing to financially support our ministry. We are asking that you would prayerfully considering continuing your personal support for our family as we transition to ministry with Haiti Care Mission. All the details for accomplishing this change can be found at the end of this letter.

We hope that each of you will keep our family in prayer as we make this transition. We would like to be as transparent as possible with these changes and encourage you to call us if you have any questions. We believe that when God calls you to a new pilgrimage you have two choices; you can listen and trust God with every step or you can turn the other way. We are choosing to trust God and follow this new path. We know that "our steps are made firm by the Lord."
Thank you for all your support and prayers over the past two years. We look forward to partnering with you in the future.

Living Victoriously in Christ,
Lance and Lynn Anderson
