On March 11 I will fly back to Florida to be with Frank & the kidlets.
And while this IS the right thing to do..
My heart is torn leaving my mom here alone.
My eyes have definately been opened to the humdrum and mundane and lonely life in a trailer park.
People are lonely and hurting because of it.
SO. Once Frank & I are reunited we will be working n preparing the RV for travel.
Like across the US at a snails pace travel.
Meanwhile I have been working on the 1st phase of many preparing to ask churches for support.
The missionary suport letter is written,
The tri-fold brochure is being revised
And the new business cards should arrive on Monday
125 Envelopes have been addressed to chuches in California, Florida, NY, Virginia, Indiana, Nevada, Arizona, Utah, Mississippi, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Carolina, & Texas. Each time I work on them I pray for the church to see our vision and join our journey... but that's another post for another day.
I have had time to work on this list and have had time to prayerfully consider each church I have written to....many of which are along our southern route from Florida to California.
Some of you may be wondering if we will see you ( as we hoped) this spring... the truth is... I don't know.
It seems there is another curve in the road that is definately different the I had planned...
There I go thinking I get to plan this journey again.
We will be travelling back toward California but certainly nit atrecord speed and also hoping to stopand visit some of the churches we will be asking to partner with us.
God is good. Despite the change in MY plan.
Sometimes I need a good swift kick in the pants as a reminder that I am not in control.
So. How am I getting back?
Last week I finally swallowed our pride & asked for help through Facebook. Thanks to your generous donations I was gifted a plane ticket and (if we budget well) enough money for the new camper tires we desperately needed before we can travel.
once again the support from friends and even strangers has blown us away.
We are trusting the churches we are writing to will catch our vision and join us on the adventure of a lifetime.
