As many of you know, we are in the midst of a big transition as a family.  Being Stateside and looking at what that means for us in regards to employment, ministry, and…well, everything else pertaining to our daily lives, has its overwhelming moments.  We’re surviving and looking forward to what the Lord might have next for our family.

First things first…Dave is headed back to PNG for 2 weeks at the end of this month.  He’ll be organizing and leaving most of our stuff there.  Some of the more sentimental items will be brought back.  Prayers for him are greatly appreciated as far as smooth travels, time with our coworkers and the Menya people, and encouragement during this closing season of our lives.

Thanks to many of you who have sent us a note of encouragement and prayers.  As we continue to process and grieve, we so, so, so appreciate the love.


On a side note, I’ve come to the conclusion I’m probably a prophetess considering the fact I wrote THIS about 8 months ago.

    How’s the new chapter going after a couple of more weeks on the home front? Ever since I got home from our Go Team to Mexico City it’s been busy here. We’re going to start moving into our new place. We’ll be living in a 2 BR townhouse 2 miles down McBean, and our son Billy and his family will be moving into our place in Bridgeport around 9/7.
    Praying that Dave finds some work soon while Eli works on his CP. May God’s blessings fall like a hot shower as the dawn breaks upon a cool morning.

Every time you leave a comment our baby smiles.
