Happy Spring to you! I like Spring because of the sense of newness, new growth, the crisp, fresh air, the vibrancy of colorful sights and sounds; and the anticipation of what is ahead.
Such is a new season for the Simpson clan. After we left Asia, we had always planned on eventually moving to Seattle to be part of the Every Nation church there. However, after being here in North Carolina for almost 20 months, it has become apparent to us that the move out west will be alot more financially, emotionally and physically than we expected.
After much prayer and discussion with our leaders in NC and WA, we have made the very difficult decision to close the doors on a move to Seattle.
Praise God for the amazing harvest we are seeing here in North Carolina! So many students and professors from so many nations are hearing the Gospel for the FIRST time and are receiving it with joy! Lives from all over the earth are being transformed on every campus here in the Triangle! Enjoy the pictures and stories below and rejoice with us. This harvest is only made possible because our labor TOGETHER!
Our ministry to internationals called iMix (International Ministry and Interest Exchange) had the privilege of mobilizing 16 American families to host 60+ international students for Easter! Also, several parties were hosted that saw nearly 30 students come as well! Beside sharing great food and fellowship, thetrue meaning of Easter and the story of Jesus was shared with all. Above is a picture of our family room filled with Chinese, Hong Kong and Malaysian students during an Easter eve event we hosted.
