We have been packing for a month, but intensified our efforts during the last few days of July. A team of folks had promised to join us to help move heavy stuff into the container. Trusting that they would come, we stepped out in faith and prepared for them. Lo and behold, that Saturday morning, they showed up and together we accomplished great strides toward squishing our home into a 20×7 foot box. It was God responding to your prayers for smooth logistics. Thank you! It was also in a sense a piece of the answer to Jesus’ prayers: the Kingdom of God took a little step toward coming on Earth as His children loved on another1. We cannot say how much it meant and how much it helped that folks promised to come…and then showed up.

Likewise, we SO MUCH appreciate y’all who have made the commitment to come with us before God’s throne one day each month (or more! J). Great things already have and will continue to happen as God hears and responds. THANK YOU! It means an immense amount to us to know for sure that you will be there with us, standing before the King. (If you would like to find out more about praying with us, please see our prayer team page.)

So today please join us in asking for continued smooth logistics as the container begins its journey to the Pacific and as we move into billeting on base, then on to New Jersey at the end of August…and Palau 5 September. Please also pray for encouragement and emotional strength for all the good-bye’s we will share this month.
