Thank you letter from the Cauley family

The Cauley family sent this sweet thank you letter this past week. I know the Winn’s will be embarrassed that we are publishing it, but we wanted you all to rejoice in the way the Winn’s and our church served the Cauley family this summer.

Dear FBCD family,
We wanted to take time to thank you for allowing us to serve beside the Winns during their sabbatical this summer.  They have enriched our ministry, our family, and our personal lives in more ways than words can express.  When a team comes for a 1-2 week period it is normally for a planned project.  That leads all of us to be focused on that one project during their visit.  However, the Winns coming on a more extended trip enabled us to break through the project-oriented mode and get them integrated into our daily work.  This is where we were ministered to the most.  The Winns are a family who really seeks joy and intentionality in all they do.  We have been deeply blessed through them. The day after they arrived we had Andy on a plane to attend a training with national partners and the summer didn’t seem to slow down from that point.  We had opportunities each week to train and disciple in the local churches.  We held our first English camp, with crucial help from Diana Lisle, and each member of the Winn family all the way down to Braden worked hard to help the students learn English and understand the Bible stories.  Another big highlight of our summer was when Andy led a Disciple Now for the M families in our city.  It was a unique opportunity for our children to study and be encouraged directly through his planning of and teaching throughout the retreat.  On a personal level for Katie and I, we were able to sit face to face and troubleshoot parenting questions, talk about homeschool practicalities, and watch a healthy marriage and family model in a way that we don’t typically have access to.

We often verbalize to the churches we work with here that FBC is fully behind all that we do with them.  Having the Winns here was a very concrete display of FBC’s greater ministry to the churches here.  The local community highly esteems titles and it was very endearing to them that FBC would send an elder and his family for so long.  We were able to get some important initiatives started with several different people groups this summer.  FBC has set quite an example here and it is a true honor to be able to serve the Lord in this way as part of such a great church.  We are truly blessed!

Chris, Katie, Caleb, Seth, and Kaiya Cauley
