Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
I guess to sum up 2019 for the McCoys would be the year of unknowns. We know God has called us to full time long-term missions in Costa Rica. Starting out this year that is all we knew. The rest was a blank sheet of paper. Little by little, day-by-day God filled in the blanks as He saw fit and in His timing. To date every single need has been met and every single prayer has been answered to the point we are in complete awe. As I’ve said many times before, to God be the glory, for the great things He has done!
At times we have felt like being McCoys should be an Olympic sport. We have been trained and preparing for this time since 2004 and it is a reality. Our monthly support is at 95% and we are confident the rest is already in the mail, just not in the bank.
We have scheduled our shipper to send our 40ft. container on Feb. 6th. All our household items, our tools for the vocational school, and our Jeep will be headed to Costa Rica and will take approx. 6 weeks. We plan to stay in the Pensacola area and our last service at GCBC, our sending church, will be March 1st. Then we will get in the missionary mobile and make one last loop to see grandparents, grandkids and in-laws before flying out the 3rd or 4thweek of March. That will put us on the mission field in less than 2 years form surrender to working! That’s a God only thing right there!
We have had moneys set aside for our move totaling approx. $23k. Now, talking to our shipper, some of the original costs have gone up a bit: $2100 more to ship the Jeep, $285 more for the container itself. Plus the house we just rented in Costa Rica needs appliances and we will need to replace the furniture we sold here – living room, dining room, and master bedroom. In all we estimate a total of approx. $8 K, unless we can find some of that on classifieds. Once again God said if we would seek His kingdom first He would take care of the rest. We also need to sell our 2006 GMC Envoy Denali aka the missionary mobile.
We did enjoy Christmas at home with family and friends. Our oldest son Matt was married on the 28th in Santee, SC. It was a great ceremony and we are so thankful for God’s leading him to this Godly wife and her family.
Thank you each and every one for your prayers and encouragement and financial support. You are truly partners in this effort.
