Packets, Packing and Proms

Life goes by way too fast, have you ever noticed? Wasn’t it just yesterday that my baby girl was decked out in her pooh bear garb, running through the sprinklers in our backyard? Or was it yesterday she went to her Senior Prom? In between stuffing packets and preparing mailings, packing boxes and handiwork we are taking a deep breath. Our lives are chaotic and surprising and emotionally charged. We’re experiencing lots of firsts, both good and not so good. Here is a small update of where we are, where we are going and how we are getting there.
The next two weeks are filled, literally!  Our youngest, Shelby is graduating from High School! We have choir shows, awards nights, senior banquets, graduation, parties and Father’s day. So, if that is not exhausting enough, the following week Robert will be leading a group on a Mission Trip to Brisbane, Australia for 2 weeks.  During all of this we of course have our full time jobs, trying to get our house in working order, packing up a few boxes here and there, etc.

When Robert returns from his trip, we plan on hitting the ground running. This means we are in the stage of gathering supporters and finalizing a moving date. We have come up with a rough budget and what we will need to live on. We will be sending out packets with information on how to support us and what that looks like. We will be planning visits to churches, Bible studies, individuals, anyone who will have us. Let us know if you would like to get together. The time is near.

Our biggest request at this point is prayer. Would you take a moment and pray for us? Our family has been through some extraordinarily difficult things.  Though we know why, it has been a growing experience for us all. The closer we get, the more challenging it becomes. But we are not deterred, because we know where we are supposed to be. In God’s will, wherever He will have us. Please take a moment and pray for our friends on the field now, Tory and Kara Satter and their family. Also, please lift up the San Carlos Apache people who daily struggle to see hope and light in the darkness.

We are so grateful for your partnership in this journey! "I thank my God always when I remember you in my prayers" Philemon 1:4
