Russia Updates--why I blog and don't call!

Please keep reading the side bar for continuous updates! It's funny, well--not really, we sent out our first letter on Monday and met with our "board" Tuesday and the date of leaving has changed last week, the visas for 5 out of 6 have been denied today--Wednesday. We have some ideas for our house--if it didn't sell---. Life in this season is not easy to live except by trusting Him! It's a reminding effort that is actually physically tiring!

If you are reading the blog and wondering---why didn't she call or email me about these things--they are important! I need to know!---well, it's really hard for me to talk about this without having some sort of struggle within--emotionally. So, please understand, I will post on here the things that are neccessary, maybe not everything(if that is what the Lord asks of me)...but we would really appreciate your prayers for all of these things!

Amy, this is where your email has helped!! Thanks!!

Prayer Prayer Prayer is what we really desire!

Some will say--maybe this is not God b/c of the denied visas--the door has closed, Some will say---keep trying--those doors will open...but we will, no matter what, keep trusting and follow hard after the Lord. It might not be easy, it might be very frustrating--not knowing how, when, why and all those lovely questions, but God is faithful and we know this and sometimes, we are asked to walk according to what we really know, deep down! Well, in this we now walk!

We will keep you posted.

Wow I'm breathing heavy just reading this post. I can feel your confusing and pain. It's hard, but if He called then He will make a way. Hang in there, maybe God's timetable isn't the same as your at the time. Wait on Him!

I'll be praying for you too!

You've been hearing his call and following where he has been leading you thus far so I know he has got it all in control!
