A New Chapter Soon to Begin

We have so appreciated everyone of you who have been praying for us as we travel, sharing the message of God’s creation.  It has been over three years since stepping out in faith and going full time with the ministry God gave to us.  God has been so faithful.  Someday I would like to write a book of all the doors He opened, the provisions He supplied, and the protection He gave.  And now we are about to embark on a new chapter.  God has supplied us with a new home!  We will still carry on with the ministry. Traveling in loop trips and then spending time at home doing local seminars and perhaps working with area camps to establish God honoring nature centers.
Let me back up a bit in order to tell you how God supplied our new home.  First I want to say a big thank you to everyone who has been praying for our need to relocate, and to those of you who have been helping us search.
Before heading out on our New York, New England and Michigan loop, we contacted Samaritan Ministry ( the health care organization we have been apart of for 16 years where Christians help Christians with their medical needs).  They put a note  in their news letter about our loop and about our need to relocate with a new home.  The day we left for New York, Brian received a phone call from Chuck Norris.  Chuck Norris from Michigan not Texas. He is a deacon at Cornerstone Baptist church in Gladwin, Mi.  The secretary at church saw the note.  As a church they had been praying about how God would have them use the empty parsonage.  They invited us to come up, do a seminar and talk.
Long  story made short,  the plan is to move in at the end of Sept after we share in NC, ARK, OK, and TX.  We will be home for a month then go on a loop to SC and FL returning to Mich in time for Christmas!  Then we plan to stay home until the summer.
Please continue to pray as we have one more month on the road and many miles to travel.  By the way, we had our first flat tire this weekend.  As we pulled into Cleftrock retreat center, we ran over a small chip of a deer’s antler and it punctured our bran new camper tire.  On Monday Brian pumped up the tire, covered the “rock” with gorilla tape, and drove down the mount into town.  They plugged the tire for just  $20!
