What We’ve Been Up To
A lot has happened since our first blog post! We continue to be amazed and so grateful for the ways God is working out the plans for us moving. Even though we feel busy and sometimes think we can’t handle much more craziness, God is faithful to work out each detail & we end up wondering why we stressed and didn’t just trust God in the first place!:)
One major thing that has happened recently is the sale of our house! There were so many miracles around it, including someone prophesying over us that they see 2 bidders bidding on our house in the next 7 days. 3 days later, that’s exactly what happened & our house sold for what we had listed it for! We were blown away by God’s goodness & so relieved to have such a big thing off our “to do” list! We moved out 3 weeks later since the people wanted to move in the middle of May. We are now living at Dale’s parents house until we leave for Florida in June.
We were able to make 2 quick trips to our Florida house over the past few months to take some of our belongings down. We’ve also started the huge process of repainting the whole interior of the house. We made progress but have a lot more painting ahead of us this summer. It’s exciting to see the house slowly beginning to look like a home as we set up our furniture & make it feel more like “ours.”
On one of our trips, we worked to clean out some old blocks & leaves at the side of our house. Dale discovered a not so small slithering friend in the leaf pile! Thankfully, after doing some research, we discovered it was NOT poisonous but our neighbor man said we should expect to see a lot of snakes. I think I’ll be mowing with my head down & watching very carefully where I step!
Currently, we are finishing up raising our support & hope to be leaving for Florida in the next few weeks. We are still in need of $700 more in monthly support to reach our budget. If you feel God lead you to partner with us monthly or even a one-time gift, we would greatly appreciate it. Also, we have prayer cards made & will gladly send one to you if you contact us. Thanks to everyone for your prayers & support. We are very excited to start on the journey God has for us as we serve on the YWAM base.
