So what does next week bring

Day by day, step by step, week by week.  Not sure what the next week brings… that is life now. We are in “transition”. We do not have a house. Our only job is to be a voice for the Bibleless. Jay left at&t last spring. I am working “prn” at the hospital which means I am not scheduled to work. So what does next week bring? We want to GO now. We have visas, are packing and want to GO.

 Right now we are in Florida enjoying family time for our niece’s wedding. We had breakfast with the bride and groom sharing pictures of Ukarumpa with them.  We are blessed to have this time to be together.  It has been a difficult year health wise for Jay’s dad so we are grateful for his wellness.

adorable great nephews and niece

So what does next week bring?

We are longing to make more friends and connections.  People who have a heart for the Word of God and want to be an active part of our ministy with Wycliffe seeing Revelation 7:9 take place

“a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language,
 standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb” 

Soon we will say we leave for PNG on …… In the meantime………

We talk to God and spend time praising Him for the many ways He is providing for us. We are praying for opportunities to share.  Please contact us if you have an opportunity. We are trusting Him to lead us day by day week by week.
