It’s been a couple of weeks since my last entry, so I want to take advantage of this pause in the activity to give some updates.
Tim and I have been working long hours every day to sort all of our possessions and to place them in the appropriate “piles”. We have about four of these “piles”; one is for Africa, one is for Michigan to move with us, the third is for items to sale, and the last pile is for storage here in Missouri.
Today we have officially gone through every room, closet, drawer, cabinet, the attic, shed and garage. We are having a huge moving sale on Saturday; we have several family members who will be helping us. It will be a long day but we hope it will be a rewarding day. Please pray that all of our items will sell.
We are weary in body and our emotions are a little stretched as well. This place has been our home for the past 6 years and we have so many wonderful memories here. But, we know the Lord has wonderful things ahead for us.
Please keep us in your prayers as we go through the next week; we will be staying with my Mom until we leave for Michigan early Thursday morning. Pray for our family we leave behind here in Missouri; especially Jenn and Sarah. This is a new road that the four of us will be traveling; the road is getting ready to branch off into three separate directions. Tim and I will be going one way, Jenn another way, and Sarah yet another way.
