This is NOT the time to have a house for sale in Florida... but we do! (This is the house last Jan...we started the process of building it in Nov. 2005...long before this crisis...but it was not completed until March of 2007!So we are asking for Prayer FROM ANYONE who reads this blog. Our peace is based on the following. All glory and honor and praise be to our Lord and Savior JESUS!
"A Christian's inner peace is never based on his ability to take the teachings of Scripture and figure it all out. Our peace always rests on the presence, power, and character of the Lord." - p. 30, Instruments of Change in the Redeemer's Hands"

So, you can see, there has just been NO time for blogging...but...oh, much time for praising God for His goodness to us. We have loved every minute of being able to serve our family-immediate and extended. We loved having the Fischers here from Hong Kong. What wonderful house guests they were! We hope to get to Hong Kong some day and visit them and see their ministry up close and personal. And...so goes our life...Thank you FATHER GOD for your kindness and goodness to us!
