We have been blown away from the support that we have received and continue to receive. There is no way that we can acknowledge all of the support that we have had, but want to let everyone know that we appreciate everything.
In one of the most expensive cities in the world, we have had numerous people open their homes (apartments) to us. They have been willing to share their lives and space with us for extended periods of time.
In particular, trinity grace church and the MoHa (Morningside/Harlem) missional community have been incredible. The community we have experienced with these people is as close to what we read about in acts 2 as is possible in the present day. Despite not being in Manhattan for 16 months, as well as their prayers, they have supplied meals, toys, strollers, etc, to make it easier for us to live. It is truly a blessing to belong to such a community and church.
We have also received support from people in Lexington. We had many offers from those who said they would help us in any way they could. In line with this, we also know that there are many people at home in New Zealand supporting us through prayer, as well as some family sending us parcels to help us over the next few weeks.
I am also very thankful that I was able to get away from work for the duration of Brea's surgery. It would have become exponentially difficult if I was having to travel between New York and Lexington several times a week.
Once again, we just want to thank each and every one of you. We really do appreciate it all.
