Dear Friends and Family,
Deputation & Family Update
We’ve been on deputation for 6 months now with quite a full schedule, traveling over 23,000 miles, preaching and presenting our burden and plan for Colombia in many churches. Pray that we can raise our needed support quickly so we can get to the field. Each day has been a step of faith, and God has proven himself more than faithful in providing for our needs. Many times we don’t know how we are going to pay for certain bills and expenses, but the Lord provides just the needed amount right on time! He’s a good God!
There are two events I want you to know about: Hell’s Gates, a reality outdoor drama depicting the end times, taking place every weekend in October (hellsgates.com). This is hosted by our home church. The other event is the Our Generation Summit in Pigeon Forge, TN during December 29-31 (bcwe.org). Plan to come and bring your church group!
We are also pleased to announce… our Vance trio is about to become a quartet! We’re excited to be expecting our second child, sometime around the end of May. Pray especially for my wife. Those of you that have ever had children know that the first trimester can get a little queasy, and we’ve got a lot of traveling planned over the next few months.
There is so much more I want to tell you about. If you get a chance, head over to our blog (bemagnified.org) to read more about what’s going on in our lives, and to see our new ministry video. I think you’ll enjoy it!
Out Of The Mouth Of Babes
Speaking of our next child, last week, we asked Amira where the new baby is, and she pointed to Aubrie’s tummy and said “Baby!!” She’s so smart! Well, then she pointed at my tummy and said the same. (I wonder what she means by that?) ☺
Colombian Culture Corner
I want you to be praying about two things specifically for Colombia. First, local elections are now taking place. Many candidates have been assassinated in regions where there is conflict with the rebel groups. Also, last month the rainy season started. They are expecting it to be worse than last year (2.2 million were left homeless and 301 people died last year because of the rains). Most of these people have never heard the Gospel.
1. For Aubrie’s pregnancy that things go well without complications
2. For our travels as we present our ministry in many churches
3. For our financial support to continue to increase (now at 14%)
4. For more laborers to take the Gospel to Colombia
For Christ and His Glory,
Aaron, Aubrie, Amira (& Baby) Vance
We’ll be leaving Tuesday morning for another long road trip up to TN, OH, PA, NY, MD, OH, SC then back to good ol’ GA before going back up to TN. We will be gone for about a month. I sure hope it doesn’t get too cold!
I thank God for the 13 or so meetings he has given us in these places. Pray that my pregnant wife does well while we are on the road, that our car holds up fine and that these meetings would turn into ministry partners to help us reach Colombia. Nothing’s too hard for the Lord! :)
It’s finally finished! Check out our video below (click here if you can’t see it)
If you would like a DVD of this presentation to show in your church please send me a message or give me a call at: 678-696-0082.
May God bless! Thank you for following us on our journey to Colombia.
