trusting and waiting

Over the past 10 days, we’ve waited and waited, got what we thought was a “GO!” and started planning, and then got a big “STOP.” And now, it feels like we’re just sitting as we don’t know what the next step is. And I’m not going to bore everyone with immigration details. I’m so tired of reading immigration rules,...

walking in obedience

I don’t really know how to get out what’s on my heart, but we’ll at least give it a shot. Over the past two weeks, I have spent most of my time teaching at the Bible school (or preparing my notes) and checking off a million to do items. I have had so much going on that I have felt like I’m just doing well to keep the balls in the air;...

our God reigns

The last two weeks have been so full. I’m teaching my last class for the school year at the Bible school, and as busy as we are, I knew I needed to teach this class.

Psalm 27:13-14 NKJV I would have lost heart, unless I had believed That I would see the goodness of the Lord In the land of the living. Wait on the Lord; Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart; Wait, I say, on the Lord! Over the past few weeks as we’ve gotten rid of so many of our belongings and as we’ve painted, cleaned, sorted, and...

I’m finding it hard to get time to process my thoughts lately, but I really want to as I know I’ll want to look back on this time and see the things that I learned. So here goes . . . We’re in the midst of selling our house, getting rid of EVERYTHING, working two jobs each, and Mark is studying to take a certification that will add to his resume...

Over the past week, we’ve hit our visa situation hard. If you’ve never moved abroad and dealt with immigration, then let me tell you it is no fun. No fun at all. It stretches you in every way possible, and it’s much of the cause of all my gray hair. So long story short, we’ve decided to get our house up for sale now, get ready for Mark to...
