So much to say! So much to report! But, alas, I don't have much time right now, so let me just hit a few high points and promise to get a longer blog out soon. I haven't forgotten about the newsletter, either, it's just been crazy with the move and all...it's coming, really!
We serve an amazing God! Northstar is seeing Him move in some amazing ways! Last Sunday we had 15 baptisms, including children, teens and adults. It was such an amazing Celebration Service. There were 100 people in attendance! We have several new families that are going to be such a blessing to the church. I am excited about getting to know them better.
The kids are back from Arkansas. I missed them so much! I don't think Cora stopped talking for about 48 hours after arriving home, telling me every detail of every minute of their trip...the girl can talk! We are enjoying spending time with Jake's parents and his sister this week.
We are settled in to our new house. Don't walk into the garage...but the house is all put together! We're loving it! Every time I walk through the door I look around and smile. The house will be such a blessing for us, and we will be able to use it for church fellowships, etc.
Jake's job situation is still rather sticky. He still has a job at this point, so that is a praise. His salary was cut, so we are trying to be extra frugile with our spending. Please continue to lift that situation up. We are relying on God to handle the situation, however it may turn out. We did not move here for Jake to work at Fontainebleau, so if he looses his job there we will know it is because there is something else he is supposed to be doing. It is simply our source of income, nothing more. We are here for the church, here to serve Christ, and we will continue to do so.
Thank you for your continued prayers and support. It is so amazing to know that so many people are praying for us.
