Over the last year we have spent a lot of time reflecting on our lives and praying about our future. We are convinced that the Lord has called us to remain in NYC for the long haul. In an effort to deepen our ties and connection to the community, we have made a decision to spend the next year fully committed to learning Spanish.

God has provided an amazing opportunity for us to live and work fully immersed in the Spanish language in Honduras. We are planning to spend most of 2015 there, attending language school, and serving as interns at another school for children in a rural village.

We will remain connected to ECC and fully intend on returning at the end of next year to continue serving alongside the staff and church family.

Please pray for:

* Our transition away from the Youth Group and the leaders who are stepping up while we’re away

* Our safety throughout our time in Honduras

* Funding and logistics regarding the trip and our apartment here

Thank you all for your continuous love and support,

Matt and Kala
