Important Information - Please Read!

As our 2-year commitment with Mercy Ships comes to an end we need to share some important information with you. We will soon to return to the USA. We will be back in Alabama in June. [if you get our newsletter then you already received this information - Thank you!]

Our support processing will continue until July 17th. We humbly ask that you would continue to support us until that time. **

If you don't currently support us and feel that you could send us a one time gift, this would be a great time to do it. This will help us with extra expenses during our reentry/reintegration.

When we came to Mercy Ships we sold our house and gave away most of our belongings.

At that time we had no idea how long we would stay! Those of you who have moved before know it takes a modest amount of money to get started all over again. Including the price to fly a family of four home from Africa. -- When we leave from Conakry Guinea we will leave with our luggage allowance, 2 bags a piece.

Continue to watch for our newsletters as we finish our time with Mercy Ships. There is a lot to process. A lot to do. It seems surreal the time is almost done. Here are some points we would love you to pray for:
  • Finishing well and safe travels home
  • A time of rest to process before jumping right back in...
  • Securing employment when we return
  • Finding Residence (House/Apartment)
  • Getting the boys registered in school
  • buy a vehicle
  • The general costs of setting up a household starting over
Thank you for your continued prayers and support! We appreciate you so much. Stay connected we're not done yet!

Much LOVE from our family...
Tyrone & Stephanie, Tytus & Ezra

** For those who have the money deducted, Mercy Ships will stop deducting as soon as our account deactivates on July 17th. For those who send in each gift by check and the "one-time" option online, July 10th would be a good time to send the last gift. Then it will process before our account is deactivated. **
