The wait is over...

With a BIG sigh of relief, and a little groan for having to start all over again in another new location, we can finally say we know what the plan is! God has given Michael a great job in Umatilla Oregon and he will be commuting from Kennewick. The pay is great, the hours are great, he will be a Training Instructor, which he is very good at and enjoys. What more could we ask for?!

So many of you have been praying for us and we have coveted those prayers along the way. We serve a GREAT BIG GOD who has answered according to His very best plan for my family, thank you for petitioning Him on our behalf! Thank you for loving us enough to support us and take care of us when we needed it most. Thanks for putting us up for the night here and there as we traversed the country, for the great home-cooking, for the dinners out, for the time you have invested in our family, for the words of encouragement and the advice we so desperately needed. A difficult time was made so much easier by the help of our dear family and friends.

So there it is, finally over with. We will be settling in Kennewick...until God calls us somewhere else!?

We miss you guys soooo much,but we trust that God has you where you are supposed to be...as you said at least for now! I praise God for bringing you into our family's life, even if we had to give you up so soon!
But we will always be kindred spirits even across the miles...I am really thankful for texting...FB and the blogging world!!!

What a beautiful faithful story. I am so glad you have tangible plans.

Your faithfulness is truly being awarded.

Can you pray for me that I would keep mine? We are still awaiting where we will end up; stay in Cali or out of state.
