Dear Friends and Family,
We wanted to give everyone an update about our lives. Most of you already know that we recently had a baby. Lilyana Violet Rodriguez was born on Easter at 3:20 PM weighing 6 pounds 12 ounces. She has a full head of hair and loves to sleep (so far). Her brother loves patting her and kissing her on the forehead. Kayla is healing quickly and is already getting back to a normal routine. Please pray for her continued recovery.
On May 3, I am graduating from Ambassador Baptist College with a bachelor’s degree in Missions. For a while now, we have been seeking God’s will after graduation. Through answered prayer, Godly guidance, and incredible circumstances, we are convinced that God would have us move to the capital city of New York to help plant a church with our friend, Robert Martinez, and his family. We were waiting on Lily’s birth before setting a date to move to Albany. Now that she is here, we have decided to move from North Carolina on May 22, 2019.
We are excited and we hope you will pray for us going forward. Here is a list of things you can pray for:
- Health while packing
- Judah and Lily during moving
- Finances while I am looking for a job
- A job in the Capital Region
- Adjustment after moving
Additionally, we would like to ask you to consider supporting us financially, if you are able. At the moment, we have enough for a down payment for a rental, but we are still praying for living expenses after the move and before I get a job. We will need funds for rent, food, unexpected expenses, gas, bills, and more. We are trusting that God will provide all our needs as we take this step of faith in moving our family to New York. We are asking God to provide an extra $5,000 before our moving date to help offset expenses. Would you consider giving to our family in order to help us plant a church?
If you want to support us:
- Check: Send it to Adirondack Baptist Church, 1431 State Highway 29 Gloversville, NY 12078. Designate it to Joshua and Kayla Rodriguez.
- Online: Go to albanylaunch.com/giving. Click the “Give Here” button. Under “Give to:” select “Josh and Kayla Rodriguez Support.”
Thank you so much for your prayers and support!
Joshua, Kayla, Judah, and Lilyana
