FROM THE ROAD... Part III

HOW BLESSED WE HAVE BEEN!




Here we are after 4,000 miles, safe and sound in our missionary home in St. Petersburg. We arrived early Saturday morning after the longest day in the car yet, and were able to spend Easter Sunday with our local church family. I would like to say this ends our Road Trip, but it is only an extended stopover until we head out for Lake Wales, Florida this weekend and finally off to PA via Asheville, NC. Again we had been spared sickness while in the midst of our travel, however on arrival to Florida several of the children started showing signs of colds.

We are so very grateful to all of you who opened your churches, homes and hearts to our family. We were blessed by so many who showed so much encouragement and support for our new work we are beginning in Lebanon. We now prepare for the final journey into this new season and we wait to see God move through the churches and individuals who will support our mission.

During our travel we were able to spend some days preparing our home for the Atlanta real estate market. We painted, worked on plumbing, painted, did yard work, painted, cleaned, painted and painted. We turned the home over to a realtor and pray that God will deliver a buyer as soon as possible. We are now faced with a monthly mortgage which is not included in our monthly budget. We do not have the funds to pay the mortgage and every month will place it and us in more jeopardy. Please contact us if you are aware of anyone looking for a home in the Duluth area. It has been priced very low to help move it in the depressed market.

We are grateful for the financial gifts we received during our journey and are amazed at the provision for our expenses while we traveled, but our greatest need remains monthly support. We are currently considerably short of our monthly budget but remain trusting of God's promise. We stand firm in His call to serve at YWAM Lebanon and the ministries of Ukraine. God knows our needs and HE will provide. We simply need to remain obedient and not be discouraged. We ask that you pray with us for the needs of our monthly budget.

Attached is a special grouping of photo's from the single place we have spent the most time... the vans! We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed living each one!

Blessing to all of you and we will update you as we continue on. Please remember our sick ones in your prayers as we prepare to leave again.

THE END... Almost!
