Prayer Letter: August 2020 in North Carolina

August 2020: North Carolina

Yesterday morning, I woke up in a city over 1,400 miles from my home near San Antonio, TX. There were many times as I drove that I felt God’s hand of protection, as car after car barely missed hitting me. Wednesday, I drove north to Dallas. The next morning, I got up at 3:00 am to hit the road for North Carolina. I arrived in North Carolina super early Friday morning. Hurricane Laura followed close behind me as I drove across the southern part of the United States. But God kept me safe and awake during that exhausting drive. 🙂

Last night, I met 2 college girls from the Philippines that are preparing to go back to the Philippines as missionaries. It was wonderful getting to know them. As they shared, I was reminded that God is at work all around the world. He is preparing each of us to reach people with the gospel. COVID and other struggles throughout our lives may cause our job to become more difficult, but God is working in peoples’ hearts!

I am very thankful for missionary apartments as I travel on deputation. 🙂 In the past, I’ve been blessed to stay with family and friends, but on this 2-3 month trip, missionary apartments are my best option.  God has continued to provide for all my needs! 🙂

This coming January, Lord willing, the plan is that I will be leaving for a 2-year Special Assignment with a missionary family near Portsmouth, England. Yes, this plan is contingent on whether COVID restrictions have lifted enough that I can get into the UK. I am currently at 25% of my needed support. My home church is planning to temporarily back me more than the 15% they are already partnering with me. Right now, I am still seeking prayer and financial partners as I proceed with plans for this special assignment. Lord willing, I will reach 100% of my needed support before the special assignment is over. In which case, I will be allowed to stay in England without the need to come back and finish deputation. Thank you for your continued prayer support!  To view my blog, please visit  https://maryenglandbound.com 🙂                   ~ Mary Coburn
