The first time we returned to America was when we were evacuated after the Great Tsunami in 2011, because my wife was late in her pregnancy with our son, Logan. The second time we returned to America was in 2014, which marked the end of our first contract with the Navigators. Following American NPO guidelines, both of these instances allowed for us to use money from my organization to fly all of my family.
However, after 7 years on the field, this is the first time we are taking a proper furlough, returning to the States by our own choice, and seeing our family and friends for the first time again since 2014. My parents and Rachael's parents have spent very little physical time with their grandchildren, so we want to help keep their relationship with them alive and building.
But here lies the problem. Because this is a normal return, children are not allowed to be paid for with NPO money. It must come out of our personal finances, and unfortunately, $2000 is a lot for us to cough up right now.
If it be in your heart to help us, we can't thank you enough. If you don't mind to just prayerfully consider helping pay for our kids' plane tickets, it would mean the world to us.
Thank you greatly for your time, and please let me know if there is anything else you need to know. Love you all!
Love in Christ,
