The January and February 2015 e-letter from the Hinkles

While walking around Freo I discovered the sign you see on the left on every lamp post. It encourages people to “Be Part of the Story” and directs them to a website that is basically an advert for all that is happening in Fremantle.  But it reminded me of the great and only true story we are a part of; the story of God’s redemption and grace, His covenant story with us.  He is writing us into His story. 
Part of His story in WA has been with the men and women of the WPC.  They have been faithful to living in this great story and inviting others to join them.  While in Perth I meet with the leaders of WPC on several occasions, some formally and others informally, and each time I was encouraged by their openness and invitation to join with their part of His story in Perth.  During my views examination time with them I was cared for and came to see us as brothers working together to spread God’s great Story.  As they voted to sponsor our visas it was a tangible sign that our hearts are being knitted together in the depths of His love for us and the people of Perth.  God is faithful to His story and we are excited to be invited and joining with these men and women in the great need to live and proclaim His covenant story to Freo and all of Australia.

It’s been a busy season of partner building with for the Hinkle’s!  Here are some of our highlights since the beginning of the year!
Attending MTW’s West Coast Global Missions Conference at Redeemer in San Diego.  We had a great booth (Shannon did a great job) and meet lots of great people.   Dr. Stephan Um and Dr. Lloyd Kim were challenging and encouraging.  Plus we got to hang out with Jeremy and Angel Martin (missionaries to Uganda) and Ben Johnson (missionary to Thailand).  
  • Lee attending and participating in the Westminster Presbyterian Church of Muncie, IN mission conference.  It was a long flight from Perth but the full week-end was great.  There was great time of sharing and prayer.  Exciting to see how God works through this faithful church in the lives of many missionaries and the kingdom impact they are making.
  • Lee getting to spend a week in Indy (even with the cold and snow; it was a 100 degree change in weather) with friends and Braden.  So great to be at Redeemer and with her people.
Top Three Prayer Request:
1. That we are fully funded by April 15th when we arrive back in Indianapolis.
2. That our visa process will move quickly and we will be able to move to Perth under a Permanent Residence visa and not a temporary visitor’s visa.
3. That God will continue to bond us (even from afar) with our Village core group and the men and women of the WPC.
