NEWS BREAK

Breaking news
We are going to relocate to Lincoln Nebraska. (Beginning of June)
How it happened
We started our second missionary journey by going to support some friends in Lincoln. While there, we were informed that the Mighty Magic Pants – music & entertainment for children – was having auditions. Our friend Ryan Teller is part of the cast. Becky commented a few times that she would love to be part of the Pants. We were told that one of the female members would be leaving and there would be auditions the following week. Becky was encouraged to audition. One of the ladies auditioning had been hand picked to replace the one leaving. Becky was the last to audition. After a couple days of prayer and consideration, Becky got the call. “It’s unanimous, we want you,” They said. In later conversations it was revealed that they were just humoring Becky by letting her try out; they already had the hand picked gal. They told us that after Becky left the room everybody looked at each other and proclaimed Becky the one. Ryan and his wife Tawnya, who were involved in the selection process, said they remained quiet, not wanting to show any bias, but with everyone else talking about how perfectly Becky would fit in, they were able to add to the comments. They all agreed to spend time praying about it before the final decision and releasing the results.
Becky spent an afternoon talking, one on one, to the leader, Mike Mennard. In there talk Becky explained our family ministry. Mike was very impressed and said he was looking for ways to increase and include ministry opportunities to what they were doing. We see a good mesh, marrying, of what God has called our family to, and Mighty Magic Pants.
Since January, following Gods lead, we have been preparing to leave our house – to become full time traveling missionaries – we now understand, in part, what we were preparing for.
We need to sell our house.
We need to purchase an RV Bus.
We need bookings. (mightymagicpants.com)
We need your prayers most of all.
With God speaking to your heart, if you can help us with any of these needs please let us know.

Remembering and Israel

What About Israel!?
While I read about Israel; traveling with Moses, being led by the presence of God in the form of a cloud by day and pillar of fire by night, I find I’m disgusted by all the whining and complaining. Don’t you feel the same way? I mean, come on! Remember the plagues? Remember the Red Sea? Remember the biter water? Remember the mana? Remember . . . They don’t remember. They forgot to recall everything that God had done.
God is asking me to remember: I have not been a day without food and water; I’m not naked (you should be very great full); I have shelter; I have family- of which you are a part; I breath, feel, see, taste, hear, and smell- not bad, not yet! Are these not also miracles?
God asked me and my family to be missionaries to the USA. I know! Right! Well, as we pulled out of the driveway, in a beautiful RV, a double rainbow appeared; a group of morning doves escorted us down our street. NOT! Our Honda Odyssey was packed tighter than Walmart on Black Friday! You would not believe the amount of whining and complaining . . . Where are the snacks? How much longer? I’m hungry? Where are we going to stay tonight? That was just the beginning of the woe’s. The kids weren’t any better!
Why do we . . . I forget all the ways God has cared for me? Why does memory fail when there’s the slightest inconvenience?
In the book entitled “Beginning Of The End” I read this about me and Israel, “If they had had faith in Him, remembering all that He had done for them, they would have cheerfully accepted inconvenience, lack of food, and even real suffering. But they forgot the goodness and power of God . . .”
Blinded by their circumstances, they and I, lose faith and forget, or is it forget and lose faith.
Remembering seems to be a key. So, I will do my best to begin each day recalling the many ways God has blessed and lead me in the past. This is my Christmas gift to myself. Lets see what happens next.
I drew them with gentle cords, With bands of love, And I was to them as those who take the yoke from their neck. I stooped and fed them. (Hosea 11:4 NKJV)
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. (Matthew 11:29 NKJV)
Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice! (Philippians 4:4 NKJV)
