Well… We’re moving to Thailand!


Praises & Prayers

  • Praises for the Moores:
    • God provided a place for us to live just 10 mins from the girls’ school. 
    • He provided a car before we were even looking for one and gave us the wonderful opportunity and honor to bless the missionary family who was selling it!
    • Our Thai Visas were approved at lightening speed making it possible for us to arrive in Thailand one day before our Kenyan work permit expired!
  • Prayer Requests: 
    • That we each would finish well as we close out this chapter of our lives. 
    • That God would give us strength and joy as we sort, clean and pack up everything. It’s a tiring process no matter how many times we’ve done it before and we’re feeling a bit weary and stretched between two places. 
    • Jolie’s birthday is coming up June 10th and we’ll be celebrating it a bit early with her school friends. Please pray that she would feel deeply loved and celebrated in the midst of the transition. 
    • That God would work out all of the various financial needs that come with an international move, resettling and setting up a home again. 
    • Lastly, that God would make His faithful presence and plans known for those we’ve done ministry with and lived life with in Kenya as we transition to Thailand.

Home Assignment 2016

kenya-map-push-pin-57686274Well, it is hard to grasp the fact that we are already on Home Assignment! As so many of our friends and family have remarked, it seems like yesterday that we were saying our good-bye’s and boarding the plane to Kenya.

Yet, here we are. Roughly 2 years down, so many new relationships and friendships forged and so many incredible testimonies of God’s faithfulness to share. We’ve been back for over a month and a half and it’s been a delight to get to share these with many of our partners already!

Some of our time in the States is going to be spent resting up a bit, spending much-needed time with family, visiting with our beloved partners-who have been so instrumental in making all of these testimonies a reality (!!)– and continuing to share our story with others as the Lord opens doors.

GuideBook coverGod blew the lid off of our expectations in this first term, with all of the additional ministry opportunities for both Clinton and Pahtyana, and directing us to write a book and launch a School of Discipleship! He not only established our footsteps but He faithfully expanded the borders of our territory. We’ve trained further throughout Kenya than we ever expected to in this first term, and have had more opportunities to reach people than imagined. We are praying for the same thing here on Home Assignment. Let us explain…

It is our desire that we not just share and give while we’re “on the field” but even when we’re back, it is our desire to bring back encouragement to those who believed in us, invested in us, and supported us all the way. The testimonies that we carry with us are beacons of Hope and Truth that God’s Word stands, that what we read in the Scriptures, specifically the beauty of the early church in Acts is available to us today! That kind of engagement, that pure community, that investment in each other and the Kingdom…The testimonies we carry with us also bring Hope to those who don’t yet know about the power, the TRUE power of finding Christ –through relationship with others. 

As we continue to raise the support needed to return to Kenya in June and carry on the work, it is our heart to share this Hope with everyone God leads us to. It is our constant prayer that the words they hear will plant seeds of life within their hearts. The Family of God that we find within true discipleship with each other, is meant for each and every one of us. Not just in Kenya. Not just in America. But everywhere. So, it is our heart and passion to make this Truth known wherever we find ourselves.

So. Home Assignment 2016 has officially commenced for the MooreFour. We’ve been so blessed by the welcome we’ve received from everyone here and have loved every second of getting to share about what ALL has happened over the past two years.

Thank you, Lord for all that You’ve done and all that You are in our lives!

Thank you to our wonderful partners who have aligned themselves with what the Lord is doing in and through us and have helped to make this all possible!

Lastly, thank you to our new partners- you are now a part of an incredible team of people from around the world who believe in reaching beyond our own borders to bring Hope, to bring Light, to bring Love, to bring the Family of God to those who like us, are longing for something more!  Welcome! 

Sincerely,

C,P,E&e

And the Date We’ve All Been Waiting for Is…

March 3 imageWe are ELATED to announce that we have purchased our passage and will be moving to Nairobi, Kenya on March 3rd!! We have been walking down this road to Kenya for over 2 years and to be this close to the end (and the beginning) is pretty astonishing, truth be told. Along the way we have seen God show up in the most unusual ways and surprise us again and again with His faithful hand on our family. In that time we both have developed a pillar of faith in our hearts that will hold us high as we set out to answer the Call. In these 2 years we have had the rare and sacred privilege to meet with hundreds of people from varying backgrounds, hearing their hearts and catching glimpses of the wonders God is accomplishing in their lives. We are beyond blessed to be partnering with so many of them and are thrilled to be looking the future square in the face with these incredible brothers and sisters in Christ backing us.

WHAT WE ARE JOINING IN KENYA: We are tremendously excited to be joining a dynamic and tenacious team who has been in Kenya for the past 7 years bringing this ministry to life and setting it up for a bright future. Here are some of the incredible highlights they’ve recently sent us:

To date there are:

  • Over 3,000 Kenyans have attended leadership trainings
  • Over 300 home discipleship/leadership groups with over 2,500 Kenyans actively engaging in community development and growing deeper in their relationships with Christ
  • Over 10 churches have been planted
What is the impact of this you might ask? 
  • Kenyans building homes for Kenyans
  • Kenyans feeding Kenyans
  • Kenyans equipping and empowering Kenyans, who then will equip and empower Kenyans
  • Kenyans creating community and bringing the love of Jesus into their neighborhoods

Our team has told us they are adding more people and churches to the waiting list consistently and can’t wait for us to join them in March! For a snapshot of the ministry, click here.

WHAT WE ARE DOING NOW:  As you might guess we are focusing on logistics and getting our family ready to rebuild a new life halfway around the world full of adventure and incredible ministry. One of the tasks we are still working on is finding our last 10 monthly partners to reach 100% of our monthly goal as we’ll then be able to move. This equates to a remaining $900 a month.

We’ve broken this down into a fun graphic we call the “Yellow Brick Road to Kenya“. (See below). If you know of anyone who is passionate to see God’s people equipped and empowered to reach their communities with the Love of Christ, who might want to “grab a brick” please let us know. If you want to share the “Yellow Brick Road to Kenya” with anyone you can find it by clicking here.

If you want to join our partnership team, please let us know via email which “brick” you’d like to pick up and we will send you all the information you need or you can just click here.

WHAT WE NEED PRAYER FOR:  Here is what we would love for you to surround us in prayer for:

  • 10 more monthly partners so we can spend our time getting ready to move and helping our girls prepare for the transition.
  • Securing some additional large suitcases to pack our belongings in for the plane
  • That the process of transitioning and starting a new life and ministry in Kenya would draw us closer together as a family.
  • That the time we have left in Colorado would be a sweet and rich one with our friends and family. And that the Lord would fully prepare and comfort those in our close circles who will feel our absence (and vice versa).
  • That the Lord would provide some solid time for us as a family to reconnect and have some fun. It’s been an intense season with language school, Clinton working full time, securing partners, the holidays, etc. and we’d love to be able to have a little bit of down time as we close one chapter and gear up for a new one.

WHAT WE STILL NEED:

  • As mentioned previously we need large suitcases. We’ve been told for a family of four we’ll need about 20 of them total! Yikes!
  • We’ll need to make some final purchases before we head on out. So, if you know of any coupons or discounts at the following stores, we’d love to know about them and save where we can (Pahtyana’s favorite hobby and secret superpower): Kohl’s, Home Depot, The Container Store, Costco, Bed Bath and Beyond.

In closing we remain in awe of our God, looking back on His divine provision and presence. We look ahead knowing the immediate work still to be done and keenly anticipating the future that at long last is near.  

In Him,

Clinton, Pahtyana, Ellyana & Enjolie
