JUST THE FACTS, part 1


We recently had a friend on Facebook to say, "SUPER excited for you guys!!!!  I want details though, when, where, etc!"

In response, here is a list of
JUST THE FACTS!
  1. The Myers Family have committed to serve 2 years in the Peoples Republic of China.                               
  2. I (Jacob) will be teaching English in a university SOMEWHERE in China.
  3. Sarah will be homeschooling the kids, taking care of Xavier, hosting my students at our apartment and hopefully volunteering at an orphanage.
  4. Wow! Sarah's list is much longer. 
  5. We'll find out exactly WHERE sometime in May or June after the universities communicate where they need teachers and after our organization places us on a team.
  6. Am I nervous or scared?  NO!  We have way too much to do in order for us to get over there.  Ask me 30 minutes before we board the plane with 3 kids!
  7. We roughly have 3 months, 12 days, 5 hours, 11 minutes and 5 seconds until we leave for a week of training in Colorado which is the last week of July.
  8. We get to take a grand total of 8-9 suit cases between 5 people.
  9. Our hearts are very grateful for all the Oklahoma fellowships that are supporting us through the Total Support Program (TSP).
  10. Minus the TSP funds,  we are required to raise $22,000 in our account by July of which $9,000 has already been donated.
  11. The Father is our provider!                                                                                                                          
Will you lift up our family as our time in the States comes to an end and China draws near?  Will you also please consider financially partnering with our family so we can make an eternal difference?  To make a contribution please click here. Thank you, from the Myers Family!
