May 08 Newsletter

Dear Family and Friends,

We have had a great year here at the Wesley Foundation. It will be sad to leave, but we are excited about our future in Wilmore, KY. So much has happened since our last letter.

Our mission trip to Guatemala was amazing. We enjoyed loving on the children, painting the house and shed, cleaning, cooking, and much more. Matt and the three other guys on the team spent two days building two doors for the school bathrooms and one door for two teenage boys so they could have some privacy. Sara Beth got to help with Christmas decorations again and even spent a few days putting information into different databases. The team got along great and with this being our first mission trip we felt it was very successful. We are excited about future mission trips.

The last two months at Wesley have been great. We had a 5 day, 24 hours a day prayer event. We filled all the slots! We had a team to participate in Relay for Life and they raised over $400. We had our annual end of the year Semi-formal. The theme was “Hollywood Red Carpet” and it was just a great time of fellowship, food, and dancing. Now we are just breezing through the last days of the semester. This last week of school we have just hung out at Wesley watching the “Back to the Future” Trilogy and playing lots of video and board games. It has been a restful week for the students and us!

Now we are planning to use the next two weeks to pack and clean. Our moving day is May 16th and we are excited about what is in store for our new life in Wilmore. Please pray for us as we look for jobs and adjust to living in a new town. We have an apartment but aren’t sure of what our new address is yet. We will update our blog with all the information and an update as soon as we get to our new home. Remember our blog is: http://mattandsarabethstout.blogspot.com/.

Once again we want to thank each of you for all the support you have given us over our time at Wesley. We couldn’t have done ministry without your prayers and financial support. We pray God’s blessings over each of you and will continue to keep you update on the Life of the Stouts as much as possible in our blog!

Much love and many blessings,
Matt and Sara Beth Stout
