Our House is Under Contract! - Prayers Answered

Wow! Has it been a month since I last wrote? Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers as we have felt the impact!

In our last newsletter we talked about selling our house. IT'S UNDER CONTRACT! Over 29 days we had 35 visits. Pray for a good inspection and we should wrap this up in 45 days. (Around April 15th) -- Do you know how hard it is to keep a house "show" ready for a month with two small boys?! Someone out there was praying for us! (LOL)

Now that we have a buyer for the house our current priorities are:
  • Where are we living ??? for the remaining time...
  • Passports, new for kids, renewals for us.
  • Shots
The #1 priority is finding individuals like yourself to be financial partners. We signed up for Mercy Ships because we trust that God wants us there. The same way God nudged us towards Mercy Ships, he will nudge some of you to give. We are confident that God will bless you through giving. Would you consider a monthly gift? This helps us assess our budget needs and brings long-term stability. -- BUT whether you give once or monthly, we appreciate your generosity! If you haven't yet, will you partner with us today?

Awhile back I asked some friends advice about buying a laptop. We donated our laptops to a local school a few years ago. And the home computer we have is a second-hand from my parents. But for returning to Mercy Ships a laptop is almost a "must have" for keeping up with friends, family, and newsletters! -- To make a long story short they bought us two laptops and said "Go pick them up, they're ready at your local Best Buy!", WHAT?! Thank you!

Life has not been without its struggles! Tytus (6) had walking pneumonia. With his asthma it's complicated. But after 8 days and 3 doctor visits they got it under control and he is doing very well! He is back at school and just in time to share his 7th Birthday with his classmates! This video is just a small sample of the love and laughter he brings to us! We think you'll enjoy it as well!
