Mission Trip to Micronesia

Dear Family and Friends:

For several months now, Jamie and I have been exploring a new direction that God may be leading us in our future life together. Currently we are living in Dublin, NH, where I work as a teacher, coach, and dormitory supervisor for DCA.  Jamie has stayed very busy with several part-time jobs this year. However, this summer we have an opportunity to go on a mission trip to the island of Chuuk, Micronesia, with Grace Dental and Medical Mission. God’s will does not always lead you where you might expect, but we both feel this is an important step to help us determine if this ministry is where the Lord would have us.

The trip is planned for July 2- 18 and will specifically target three islands, with efforts concentrated on opening doors to share the gospel through dental and medical aid. We will be staying for most of the time on the main Chuukese island of Weno, but we were also told to bring a tent, because for several days we will be “camping” Micronesian style in order to set up a clinic on a remote island of Nomwin. Thankfully, Jamie and I will not be asked to pull teeth or diagnose illnesses. We will be assisting the medical teams, but also learning specifically how GDMMissions operates and what our future roles may be with the mission.  Each team member needs to raise $3,000, 80% of which goes toward airfare. We are trusting God to provide the funds, but we do understand that raising $6,000 in a short amount of time is a daunting task. We are confident of God’s leading and that no matter the difficulty, He is always faithful.

We are excited (and admittedly a little nervous) about this next step, but recently I was encouraged by a quote from a book I have been reading called Finish the Mission:

“Hebrews talks of those who were made strong out of weakness. The implication is not that they made themselves strong, just that they made themselves available. As a result, they were made mighty. God is able to do more than we can imagine.” Please pray with us for wisdom about our future, that the Lord will provide the necessary funds for this trip, and that we would be useful tools in the hand of the Almighty.

In Christ,

Jordan and Jamie Moody

    Any chance of needing a medical student to tag along? I also am fluent in Chuukese, written and spoken…
