Big News!

We are going to our pre-field training! We have reached 75% of our monthly support needed and will be attending training in Union Mills, NC from February 9th through April 16th. We have waited a long time to get to this point! We are so thankful to be going now instead of after the baby gets here.
As soon as we got the ok from CAM we started planning our trip. We had a few issues that we started to worry about, but God worked them all out in no time. We were going to fly because our car is unreliable for a long trip, but a couple in our Sunday school class has graciously given us their vehicle to drive for the whole nine weeks! Another member of our church has offered his BP gas card to pay for gas for our trip and we have many more people praying and doing other things to help us while we are away. The most important thing that I have been learning over and over these past couple of months is that God will not ask you to do anything that He won’t provide the means for. He is truly able to do so much more than we ask or think (Ephesians 3:20)!
Our plan from here on out is to complete our training, finish our support raising, and then depart for Guatemala a few months after the baby is born. We have a lot to do in the next few months, so please continue to pray for us. Our supporters continue to amaze us as they give so unselfishly during such hard times. Thank you, thank you thank you!
In other news, we found out that we are having a baby GIRL! We are so excited to have one of each. Her name is Grace and she will be arriving sometime around June 5th.
Thank you again for your prayers and support. If you would like to contact us while we are at training you can email us at, reach us on our cell phones (205)218-8262, or by mail at:Jordan Self
