The Story

Telling people about Jesus is important. That's why since arriving in Portugal in early 2008 the Andrzejewski family has spent only 3 months in the US. 

The other 63 months have been spent making disciples. By the grace of the Lord, they have seen a small mission steadily grow into a healthy church. 

But, soon they will need to return to the States to update friends, family and ministry partners on the progress that's been made for the Kingdom. 

They also need to rest and let the kids spend the night with their grandparents. Call it a sabbactical. Call it a furlough. Or, just call it a break. 

Here's where you come in. 

Living in Europe is expensive. Significantly more expensive than living in the US. The cost alone of plane tickets for a family of seven from northern Portugal to Alabama costs around $7000 or $1000 per person. 

Constantly battling a weak dollar and a global financial crisis, over the years the Andrzejewskis have tried not to the be "squeaky wheel" that constantly asks to be greased, instead sharing financial needs only when necessary. 

These plane tickets are necessary. They have 9 months to raise $7000. 

Would you be willing to help them? Every little bit makes a difference. If 100 people gave $7.50 a month for 9 months, the goal would be all but met. 

$7000 sounds like a lot, but if everybody helps just a little, it adds up fast. Like the song says, "Little is much when God is in it."

Thank you for your sacrifice. May the name of the Lord be glorified.

Praise the Lord! We've reached our goal and some gifts are still coming in. I feel like Moses in the Old Testament when he received an offering and so much came in that he had to ask the people to stop giving. 

What is being mailed to our support address with what has been paid through Paypal is more than enough to pay for the tickets. 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

We got a little bit of bad news yesterday. After being quoted a total $7200 for our tickets about a month ago, our travel agent came back and told us that the price of the tickets had gone up to a total of $7,600. So that means that we are about $2000 off of our goal and we have a little over two months before we leave. We are going to purchase these tickets on credit and by faith that the rest of the money will come in soon. Please share this with your friends and family as a matter of prayer. Trust the Lord with us for this need. Thank you.

Thanks to your generosity, we are approaching our goal of $7,000. We are currently at $5,649 with several people showing an interest in giving over the last few weeks. We've been in contact with a travel agent who has found us a great flight to Atlanta with only one layover, and we would love to reserve this flight sometime this week. 

Everyone is getting excited, especially the kids. We have people looking for short-term housing for us and a vehicle to use while we are in the States. 

We are setting a tentative calendar and plans are already in the works for Nina's 40th birthday party. Just a few more months and we'll be headed that way!
