It’s been another busy week at the Maxwells. We love our Sundays: a day to worship the Lord and a day of resting to recharge for the coming week. Yesterday morning, we girls and Mom tackled cleaning the bus. We hadn’t had the time to tackle it since we’ve been back, and although we’d cleaned it many times on the road, it still needed a thorough one plus all of the bedding needed to be washed. There was much to be done, but in about two hours, the bus was back to being “road worthy.”
The next trip will be here before we know it! We will be doing three homeschool conventions in May, and we would love to do some single-evening conferences and church services in between. If you’re interested, please see our Speaking Schedule.
This past Friday, we also officially celebrated John’s birthday. When you have a birthday on the road, you get a bonus: you really end up with two birthdays, but only have to turn one year older! 🙂 I figured out that this year, over half of us will have birthdays while we’re away.
One of our friends at the nursing home appears to be dying. For two years now, Christopher has gone to pray with him each week that he’s able. It’s been a special time for both of them. As a side note, Mr. M. had prayed for several years for a church to do services at the home, and we were the answer to prayer. We know dear Mr. M. is trusting in the Lord Jesus for his salvation!
“But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city” (Hebrews 11:16).
