Life's been good here ... God is Good

As we plan to depart the US, we are finding there are somethings we will
really be missing. Surprisingly, one of those things is the winter
snow. I know many of you in Wisconsin will (and have!) looked at us a
little funny as our countenances have lit up as snow would be coming

There are other things that will weigh a little heavy on us as we leave.
There are many people here that have been such a blessing to us during
our time here that we will have a hard time saying good-bye. People who
have, through the Lord's prompting, provided us with everything from a
place to live, to a vehicle, to food, to an answer to medical bills,
even to shoes and nice hot cup of latte on a cold winter's morning!
There are also those family and friends that have been going through
trials, and though we will still be able to pray we will be distanced

provision for them as well.
We will strive to update you yet before we go. We are thankful for each
Randy for us.
