Worthy of Praise

I have just a few seconds while the kids are asleep to fill you in on some of the wonderful things that have happened around here.

One is a bit older, but I just realized I forgot to share! We have a vehicle!! I'm too cramped for time to find the link about our van dying, but after 4 months of living without a vehicle we found an affordable van for our family. The amazing part of it is that about a week after purchasing the vehicle we received a love offering from the church which paid for the vehicle to the penny! How cool is that!?!

Our other exciting news happened on saturday. About 10 years ago Nick sensed God's call on his life to go into full time ministry. Nick heeded the call and headed to Bible College where he filled all the necessary requirements, followed by an apprenticeship which ended in May. All of this work was to get him to the place of becoming "accredited"; which means he has the credentials to work in the Alliance denomination as a pastor. And as of Saturday morning, he is! We now begin seeking God's direction and looking for opportunities to be used in full time ministry. So very exciting.

What has God done for you lately??

PRAISE THE LORD!!!!!

Now for more adventure. I am soooo proud of the both of you. God knew what He was doing when he picked you out to be Nick's helpmeet.

We are so happy to have you for our daughter-in-law and mother of our grand-daughters.

We knew Nick could do it. Kirk knew years ago that Nick was Pastor material. Even before Nick or anyone else except for God.

I know God has great plans for your family. You are always in our hearts and prayers.

We love you all sooooo much and can hardly wait to see you all in November.
