Rush, rush, rush - Time for a Breather

We've been running around like "chickens with our heads cut off" to move out of the house we've been staying in, visiting churches, having some meetings, writing letters to send to new people telling them about our work and consolidating our junk down to one car load. If you would tell me that I would go from a 4 bedroom 4 bath house to one car load and move 6 times in 2 years plus work in France for 2 months I would think you were crazy! God is honing us, stripping us of so many things, and yet blessing us beyond measure.

We are continuing to speak to groups of people "in person" in the Kansas City area between Lawrence and Raytown and all points in between. Then we will use our Macon, MO location to come back to for home base. There are some great folks all over these here parts. I'm starting to speak like my country folk and at the moment thinking a little less French. Tomorrow we will get back to French lessons once arriving at our friend Jana's house.

Our son-inlaw, Joe, is graduating from KU in film and Biology and we are very proud of him! Let's hope it doesn't rain for commencement. The school will put off the ceremony every 2 hrs. in the event of rain and if they put it off so long they will cancel it. Can you imagine?!! I hope that doesn't happen.

My brain is full. Life is good. Pray for Russell's dad, Sherman who has had some complications with his heart. We are glad to have spent this past week with them. He is doing somewhat better and went for a stress test today.

The World Team staff said we scored high on our Inter-cultural survey to see if we could live cross-culturally. That was good to hear. Some people have such a hard time melting into a culture and trying to get rid of the American mindset. We'll see how we do when we get back to France.

We believe 2 churches from this area are going to add to our support needs. Thank you Lord. Pray that God would move more people to want to partner with us in this venture. Pray for our new work in Gisor, France; for Kevin and Stephenie, Eliezer and Esther in this Normandy town. For the people they are meeting, a few in Gisor have met Kevin and they are Christians who are excited to have an evangelical church in their own town (there is only one Catholic church in an area of probably 40 or 50,000 people) and also pray for those who don't know God yet but have a spiritual need and want Kevin or Eliezer to help them find Him.
