Faith In The OC

Tuesday, June 22, 2004

I just want to thank a few people before I say any more. I would like to start by thanking Colleen's parents. They have been SO supportive even though I know they don't want to see us go. They have taken the boys so we could get stuff done. They have given us great meals. Taken care of some of the big stuff that is needed on the other end of this move. Clothes for the boys countless times. The list goes on and on and on. So thank you so much you guys. We are Very thankful for you and for all that you have felt led to give. We appreciate it more than you know!

My parents have been amazing too. Read back on June 16th for a huge shout out to them.

There are some other people out there that for now will remain nameless because I don't know if they want there names up here or not. But.......We have received 2 personal checks so far from two different couples both quite sizeable (at least to me!). You know who you are so we thank you for making that sacrifice.

I would also like to thank some people again nameless who have come to our house and given us dinner and hung out with us for a bit. Thank you so much for that! It is a blessing to not have to worry about dinner for an evening and even more of a blessing to get to hang out. You know who you are too so thanks!

Sylvan Hill Church has given quite a bit as well. We thank all of you for praying and also for the money. I'm not sure where all of it came from but it is a huge help.

The Portico has also given! You guys amaze me. There are so few people to come up with such a sizable amount of money. We are blown away. Thank you so much!

There are so many people out there that we don't even know praying for us and those of you who do know us that are praying: Thankyou! Your prayers are more important than anything else! We need them! Keep praying. Thanks to everyone that is apart of this move and we thank you all!

Now on to the update:

--> We have received a total of $1200 for our move. This only leaves us with another 2 or 3 hundred to make this work. Praise God! 2 days ago we still didn't know where the money was going to come from!

--> We have the truck and trailer rented. We have rented it through Budget. They had the nicest trucks and the best price. Great customer service too!!

--> God is obviously working. He has given us strength and has been with us every second of this phase of our move. Thank you God! All glory to you!

--> I still do not have any solid work. This could go in the praise section as well but I have been able to work on some web stuff and that has helped quite a bit! This may move into a more full time thing but for now we still need a job.

--> We still need a place to 1) Store our things when we get to Orange and 2) A place to stay in between getting down there and when we can find an apt.

So with all that I leave you now to go and do some more packing! Thank you for all the prayer. We love you all!

--> Continued strength when weakness seems easier.
