Have you ever wondered who ships out Titus2.com orders when we’re on the road? It’s been an amazing journey. For a number of years, before the Lord gave Nathan and Melanie little ones, Melanie shipped for us. We were so grateful. Then, in September of 2008, my grandparents graciously agreed to ship for us, and they truly loved it. It was a joy for my grandma to pack the order and pray over each one as she shipped it. As most of you know, my grandparents were involved in a car accident last June. We had an upcoming trip, and we were going to figure out how to ship on the road, when my grandma was very emphatic that she still wanted to. So, with a bit of help from Melanie, she somehow managed to ship during those 5 weeks we were gone. Grandma and Grandad, THANK YOU for your enthusiasm and serving in this way.
After that, we all agreed it was too much for my grandma with her health status, and we began praying. Should we begin to pull a trailer behind the bus and ship on the road? What were we to do? The Lord prompted my dad to contact another family who lives near us to see if their girls would be willing to ship from their home. Their answer? YES!
So, since January of this year, the sweet C. family has been graciously shipping. Over the last few trips, it’s been mainly Kristina who has shipped. The C. family tells us they love to ship and in fact miss it when we’re home and doing it ourselves. We are extremely grateful to them for being willing to sacrifice the time to take care of the orders while we’re away.
Kristina also came along Tuesday evening to help with our photo shoot. No more of Joseph or Christopher running back to the camera, clicking the button and racing to get in position. She helped immensely. Thanks, Kristina! More pictures to follow from that shoot.
