A few weeks ago Joe and I sat down and planned the next 2 years of our life! 

We looked at our next long season of ministry. We shared the opportunities we want to step into, while looking forward to continuing and developing our roles as base managers at Rapid 14. We excitedly talked about what spending the next 20 months in Zambia means for our family and marriage, as well as our ministry.

These conversations are some of my favourite moments with Joe. Getting on the same page and dreaming together, aligning our vision and allowing God to grow us through each other. We’ve been spending time asking God to grow us and our capacity over this next season, I figured having a plan would help that.

God clearly had something else in mind…

Baby Colucci #2 will be joining the team in October.

We are so excited for this unexpected surprise and are getting ready to have a new little person to raise. 
With just a few changes to our upcoming schedules we’re still looking forward to a packed year of ministry! 

We have our flights booked to leave the USA April 8th! We extended our time in America to be able to get the full use of my visa here in the states. While we are SO ready to get back to our home and lives in Zambia we are keeping our hearts and minds focused on our last 3 weeks here in NY. We still have 25% of our monthly budget to raise before we leave, and are filling our calendars with meetings to share our vision and invite people to partner with us. If partnering with us is something you’d like to know more about we’d love to hear from you, please contact us. 

Before we fly to Zambia we will be stopping in England for one week, we are excited to see loved ones from our home Church there. English friends, look out for details about a catch up evening we are planning. 

Oli has been taking road trips and flights all over America. He’s done so well and we get compliments on how sweet he is whenever we travel.
However our upcoming flights back to Zambia are long and during the day, not our ideal travel time. Prayers would be appreciated that this active 14 month old travels well and peacefully.

We have had a great time meeting with our partners and friends. Our extended time in America means we’ve been able to see so many of you! Our ministry is made possible by the team of generous people who support us, our time
with each of you has been so encouraging and
a huge blessing to us.

Lilly’s family flew from England to Florida so we could spend some quality time together.
When we’re away from family so often, taking
a few moments to create memories becomes 
so important. We are so thankful for the time we’ve had staying with and visiting both our families,
and for them loving and spoiling Oli. 

Thank you for taking the time to read our update. We appreciate you, our team, across the globe.
We love hearing from you so please feel free to ask us anything, we are also so grateful when we hear from you with updates and ways we can pray for you.
