On another note, this Thursday is Tim's birthday, so any of you who are reading this and know him well need to suprise him with a Happy Birthday text or call this Thursday! Or you could even comment here and I'll show it to him on Thursday.
One update on our house hunting. We have continued to receive notices from our realtor of houses going on the market, and to make a long story short, we went and looked at a house this past Monday (Memorial Day) that was pretty much everything we had wanted. All 6 of us really liked the house, the location was good, the house had obviously been extremely well maintained, it was on the water, so many great things about it. But then neither Tim nor I could get a peace about making an offer. It made no sense, but we both knew that was not the house God wanted us to buy, so I emailed our realtor on Wednesday and let her know. She is so awesome - she said she totally understood and would continue praying God's leading for our family.
We are gearing up for leaving in less than 2 weeks! My friend, Dawn, had lent us a book about another family of 6 who sold everything and went on the road, and Tim & I ended up talking to the husband yesterday on the phone. You know how you can meet someone for the first time, even over the phone, and just really connect with their heart? We totally felt that way with him. Anyway, they will be in Denver the same time we will in August, so we are going to hook up with them then. They've started a ministry called Passion-to-Action, and we just really admire their hearts.
We haven't completely ended our ministry to the local church we've been working with, but have been winding down significantly. It's been such a joy to join them, so I know we will miss them while we are gone. Please continue praying for God's direction as we re-group and re-evaluate the next steps He has for us while we are gone. Well, I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Blessings to all!
