Griffin Journey Update!

Hi everyone!! Well, we haven't updated in awhile cause things have been crazy busy around here. Everyday is spent hacking away at our ever growing to-do list, all the while seeing family and raising two little kids!!
We leave in two weeks, 16 days to be exact, and we couldn't be more excited! It will be so nice to see all this preparation finally turn into reality. But we are still enjoying every last moment with friends and family.
We have made some amazing connections over there already that have proven themselves invaluable to us. They have given us so much insight and direction, helping us to connect with the right people concerning different areas for our family, and just really been wonderful people! I can't wait to meet all of them. We can't even express how much they have helped our family and how much easier it makes going into this, with such support on the other side.

We did want to update you guys on one thing. We are now set up to receive tax-deductible donations. If at any time you feel led to give towards our ministry endeavors and help support our family during this time, you can do so in a way that is beneficial to you too!

I know that things are tight for so many people right now and it is really hard for us to even ask for money. Really hard. Just to be honest, it makes us extremely uncomfortable. Why? I don't actually know.
I know that this is how the kingdom of God works and I personally LOVE helping others when they are in need or stepping out to serve God. I know others are the same way and that by not allowing them an opportunity to be a part of what God is doing we are robbing them of receiving a blessing. A blessing from God for their giving heart, a blessing of being able to help their fellow brother and sister in Christ, and a blessing of getting to be a part of something bigger than themselves! All because we want to be self-sufficient or are afraid of offending, etc. At this point, we are having to really get beyond ourselves and extend our invitation to you. Please join with our family as we move forward to serve God with, literally, everything that we have.
We ask that you would prayerfully consider financially supporting our family in any amount with either a one time gift, or even a monthly commitment as Brandon is only allowed 20 hrs per week to work. We know God will provide for us, as He has already done miracles beyond belief up until this point. So all that is left is to invite you to be a part of what God is doing in and through our lives, and then in turn believe that He will bless you beyond what you could ever think, hope, or imagine!

Checks can be sent , with "Australia" in the memo, to:
Love Speaks
8205 Navigation Dr.
Rowlett, Tx 75088

We will also be setting up a paypal very soon for you guys which should make giving a whole lot easier. We'll let you know as soon as that is done.
And of course we can never, ever underestimate the power of prayer. Please remember our family in your prayers and feel free to leave comments here or drop us a line on facebook. We love being able to stay connected with you guys.

Much Love,
The Griffin Family
