Questions! Questions! Here’s the Beaudin’s TOP 10 questions we get asked most frequently. Check them out!
10. What will you do?
We will be Cadence Hospitality House directors. This means we will provide a “home away from home” outside a base. On Friday nights active military will come over to our home for “a home cooked meal and a Bible study.” During the week we will mentor, counsel, plan short term mission trips, and outings to build relationships with them.
9. What will the girls do?
At this time Emily desires to come with us for the next year to see where we are going and serve alongside us. She plans to attend college the Fall of 2016. Kelsey will help serve for a little longer as she will be starting 7th grade. Both girls will help with food prep and cooking as well as child care for young families coming for Bible Study and fellowship on a Friday night! Both girls will be the little sisters many of our servicemen left back home.
8. Why the military?
The passion comes from a Dad I didn’t grow up with who served the Army in the front lines of Vietnam and came home with “battle fatigue” or today PTSD. He never bounced back from what he saw and did. I’ve also been a youth pastor for almost 20 years in one church and have seen plenty of teenagers and friends head to war. Some have reintegrated back into civilian life ok – some have not. We appreciate and respect those who serve, but an even bigger passion is the desire to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with our military. In our day and age, with all that is going on in the world, they need people to love on them and show them Christ through word and deed.
7. Can we visit and help serve?
Absolutely! We would love to have you come taste and see what we are doing. We believe you will fall in love with what we will do.
6. Do you work alone or with Chaplains on a base?
Our desire is to be placed at a military base wherever the need is greatest. Chaplains are looking for help from Cadence and we are ready to work with and support our busy Chaplains.
5. What are we doing with our house?
We may sell, we may rent.
4. How long will you be a Cadence Missionary?
As long as the Lord wants us with Cadence! We were at Soldotna Bible Chapel for almost 20 years as youth pastor, so you never know!
3. What is the best way to support us?
First, by praying. We need your prayer more than anything. Second, by supporting us financially. Your partnership will be what sends us to the field to share the Gospel and to love on our troops. If you would like to partner with us, please click on this link.
2. When are you leaving?
As soon as our support is raised. We are currently at 46%! God is good! Our personal goal is this August, and we are fervently praying that it is also God’s goal!
…and the number one question:
1. Where are you going?
We don’t know. Really. We want to be where God needs us most, and we are willing to go wherever the need is greatest. We could be either international or domestic, as there are major military installations all over the United States as well as Europe, Korea, and Japan. We’ve asked Cadence to begin talking to us about where we are going when our support is almost raised. So please pray with us that it will be soon!
