Starbucks CHALLENGE!!!

We are so blessed to be on this journey that God has designed.  We are getting closer by the day to Papua, Indonesia, but still need your help!  In order to get to Indonesia we still need a team of people to join us! Would you prayerfully consider joining our team so we can meet the practical and spiritual needs of the people in Indonesia? 

We are so thankful for our supporters! 
Current day our monthly support is at 42.7%. We still need supporters for $3,727/month! Our one-time support is at 62.1%! All we need is $11,104.70 for our one-time support! 

STARBUCKS Challenge: Would you prayerfully consider partnering with us for $2.50 a day? (this would be $75/month) This is less than the average cost of a Starbucks coffee drink!  We ONLY need 50 more coffee drinkers to reach our monthly support by August 27, 2011

If you would like to support us please follow this link Helping the Grant's Serve the People of Indonesia!  

In order to get to Indonesia for language school by January 2012, our pledges need to be in by August 27th!  Would you help us? Thank you for following God's story in our lives!

Update from Royal Oak, MI

Getting current
Last Friday we managed to scratch a little bit of time out of our day to go visit the Henry Ford Museum. It's the home of the chair Abe Lincoln was shot in, the limo JFK was assassinated in, the bus Rosa Parks was in when she refused to give up her seat, and several other interesting exhibits. Being related to Eli Whitney I (Will) enjoyed the model of the cotton gin and was amazed to find out Eli Whitney Jr. made guns with Colt. Another interesting find at the museum was the Chrysler Turbine which was a Chrysler produced car in 1965 with an Italian turbine engine.

Fuel for dad

About a week ago we had a baby shower here in Michigan which was great for Nan as she was able to catch up with her girlfriends and me to meet them. Among some of the presents received was some coffee for dad as I am already not sleeping quite the same as before, but its all preparation for this next season of life.
