Life may be an ever changing experience, but God is good and that never changes!
God’s goodness and life’s ever changing aspects have come together for us in a significant life change.
Last week we traveled to PA to celebrate our grandson, James’ birthday. While there, we came across this:
It’s a 776 sq foot log cabin on 20 hardwood forested acres in northern PA just 15-20 minutes from our children and grandchildren. It comes without electricity, without water, and without a septic system. And we are elated!
has become an increasingly significant desire for us to be closer to our children
as their families are expanding. We have long dreamed of such a home
and felt that the time was right to make the move, accomplishing two
goals in one fell swoop! God blessed us in amazing ways in our finding and having our offer accepted on this delightful refuge.
This means we will be listing our Sanford home and moving north yet this summer. We’ll also be working on getting the cabin onto the grid - getting electricity to the home, putting in a septic system, and running water. We also hope to build a dedicated (and heated) workshop for Glen. All of this will delay our trip to Great Guana Cay where we’ve been helping to build a church, but it has not diminished our excitement for that work. Our island friends are informed of and supportive of this upcoming move. We hope that you are too.
Carol’ folks are still in Sanford and we will be down to visit with and provide for their care on a regular basis. And those trips will allow us to stay in touch and meet with friends who have become such a dear part of our lives. While our base of operations may change, our commitment to volunteer ministry does not. In fact it may be expanding as we have been asked by the Githiga Children's Home in Kenya (with which we have been affiliated for some 32 years) to visit and do some volunteer work with them. So too, we have been invited to spend 3-6 months with the Bukit Doa congregation in the Denpasar region on Bali, Indonesia once travel there opens back up.
We’ll keep you posted. Will you pray with us for this exciting development? And if you are ever in Northern PA and want a million dollar view of the endless mountains, look us up. We may not have internet, but we do have cell service...most of the time ;)
