I am so grateful for the parents God has given to me. Every night, NO matter how busy we are, we have family Bible time! There have been so many times that they could just have said, â€œWeâ€™re too busy tonight. Weâ€™ll just skip Bible time.â€ But through their faithfulness to Bible time, they just prove even more to me how important that time is! It is such a special time that we have together as a family. We can enjoy some rest from our dayâ€™s activities while we learn from Godâ€™s Word!
These days before a trip have been very busy, and many things go unexpectedly wrong. We have experienced some sorrows, but the Lord gives us comfort. We have faced seemingly insurmountable obstacles, but the Lord gives solutions. Sarah has spent hours over the last weeks on support calls for computer issues. She has been very determined to find out how to fix her problems and has not given up until she has found the solution! The bus work has provided its own list of challenges.
We are so grateful for your prayers and request that you keep lifting up our trip and the preparations for it! I have been reminded at times lately of the verse.
â€œAnd we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.â€ Romans 8:28
Truly, everything we do will work together for good! I love how the Lord brings Scripture to mind just when we need it.
May you have a blessed new year!
